Worshipping Lord Shiva and offering prayers to the Shivlingam is considered important for a devotee throughout the year, yet performing the poojan typically in the month of Shraavan is believed to manifold into favorable outcomes. One of the most crucial aspects of the Shiva poojan is the Parthiv pooja.
The divine poojan has its roots since the ancient times. Mythology states that the poojan was first performed by Shanidev to please Lord Shiva, in order to grant him more powers than Suryadeva. Not only this, but, the mighty Lord Rama performed this poojan to take Lord Shiva’s blessings in his war against demon king Ravana. Also, the yajman performing this poojan, gets an opportunity to live 10,000 years in heaven.
