What Items Should Be Offered In Maha Shivratri Shiva Puja?

One must know about the rules to be observed in the puja performed on the day of Maha Shivratri. What items should be offered in Puja? Let's find out what items should not be submitted.

This year Shivaratri came in a special yoga. It is considered very special that Shivaratri falls on Trayodashi and Chaturdashi together. Puranas say that at midnight on that day Lord Shankara would appear from Brahma in the form of Rudra. Also today it is said that Adishakti is married to Goddess Parvati.

Regular worship and abhishekam on the day of Shivratri pleases Lord Shiva. Abhishekam with various objects once in four hours brings the grace of Bholenath. But there are some things that you should not offer during the puja on the day of Shivaratri.

What should be offered in Maha Shivratri Puja?

Abhishekam and Rudrabhishekam on the day of Maha Shivratri become special. If you fast and stay awake all night, you will get the blessings of Lord Shiva. Devotees immerse themselves in the name of Shiva by performing Shiva puja every four hours. During the first puja, a mixture of milk, Ganga water, saffron, honey and water should be offered to Shivalinga.

A worship performed once in four hours on Shivaratri gives special results. Doing this pooja will remove all your troubles. Puja should be done with concentration. Water should be offered to Shivalinga during the first puja. Yoghurt can be anointed while worshiping the second jam, ghee while worshiping the third jam and water on the fourth jam. Sandalwood should be applied and Bhasma should be offered.

Plums should also be offered. Shami leaves, bilva leaves and ummetta flowers are very dear to Lord Shiva. By offering and worshiping these, one gets rid of sorrows and brings happiness and prosperity in life. If you worship Shiva Parvati today, all your wishes will be fulfilled.
