Mumbai: Today is the first Somwar/Somvar or Monday in the auspicious month of Shravan according to the Hindu calendar followed by people in the northern part of India. You can seek the blessings of Lord Shiva today by simply chanting the Moola Mantra with utmost devotion and love.

A number of people across North India keep fast during Shravan Somvar.

If you are among those who wish to make this Somvar special, then you may do the following:

After taking bath, visit a Shiva temple to offer water/milk and Bilva leaves to the Linga. If you don’t have a temple nearby, offer water or milk to the deity in your house. But visiting a temple would be recommended.

Besides chanting the Shiva Moola mantra, you can also chant the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra and the Rudra Gayatri Mantra.

Offer food to the poor and the needy and aspire to lead simple life like Shiva.

Here’s wishing everyone a very happy first Shravan Somvar.
