Importance of Sawan and Worshipping Lord Shiv Jee: Every year in the month of Sawan, every Shivalaya starts echoing with the chanting of Om Namah Shivaay and Bam Bam Bhole. There is a crowd of devotees in the temples throughout the month and people worship their adorable God Lord BholeNath Jee with full devotion and dedication to fulfill their wishes. Lord Shiv Jee is one of the deities who gets pleased very quickly. In the month of Shravan, worshipping of the entire Shiva Family is going to fulfill all the wishes. Although this entire month is dedicated to Lord Shiv Jee, but it is believed that on every Monday of Sawan month, whoever fasts and worships with full faith, BholeNath soon fulfills his wishes. Unmarried people get the desired life partner, childless couples get happiness of children, one gets freedom from fear and wealth, besides honour, respect, name and fame. Special pujans are performed on all the twelve JyotirLingas of India, during this month. Click Here to Book Now
Let's talk about Kanwar Yatra: The practice of conducting Kanwar Yatra has been going on for centuries. Shiva devotees fill pious GangaJal in pots with reverence and emotion and leave for their destination with the chanting of Bam Bam Bhole. According to one of the etymological meanings of Kanwar, the letter ‘K’ denotes fire and ‘Awar’ means to receive it properly. The intention is that fire i.e., the Creator, the Observer, the Guardian and the Destroyer should be our guide and that should be the goal of our life.
‘Kanwar Yatra’ is a ‘Religious Resolution Journey’ undertaken in the holy month of Sawan, which is dedicated to Lord Shiv Jee and Mother Ganga. ‘The Resolution of Kanwar Yatra’ is made to fulfill the wishes or to ensure worldly pleasures. People of all age groups participate in this revered journey with great joy and devotion. Even some devotees go to collect ‘Kanwar’ every Sawan and some people at least believe in double travel.

In the month of Sawan, Sanatan Dharma devotees from every corner of the country bring Ganga water from the nearby banks of Mother Ganga and bring ‘Kanwar’, but according to the Holy Scriptures, special importance has been given to bring ‘Kanwar’ from Har Ki Pauri, Haridwar and Gomukh, Gangotri. The devotees carry a ‘Kanwar’ on their shoulders and reach their designated destination Shivalayas, chanting 'Bam Bam Bhole' and on the Trayodashi and Chaturdashi Tithi of Shravan month, devotees worship the ShivLinga with great enthusiasm with the water of Ganga filled in the ‘Kanwar’ pots.
In fact, ‘Kanwar Yatra’ is actually a resolution that devotees take to please their beloved Lord BholeNath. During the ‘Kanwar Yatra’, devotees indulge in pure ‘Satvik’ food, ethics and recite ‘Jay BholeNath’ and ‘Bam Bam Bhole’ continuously during the ‘Yatra’. This leads to their spiritual purification and brings satisfaction of mind.
The specialty of this religious festival is that all Kanwar Yatris wear saffron colored clothes and children, old, young, women, men address everyone with the slogan of ‘Bol Bam’ in the same language. Saffron Colour is a symbol of vigour, courage, faith and dynamism in life. Click Here to Book Now
