Someshwar Puja in Shravan Month

Someshwar Puja is observed during the Shukla Paksha of Shravan month as per traditional Hindu lunar calendar followed in North India. Someshwar form of Shiva is worshipped during the puja. Information regarding this puja is found in the Narad Puran. Some devotees observe a vrat on the occasion.

The puja and vrat is associated with Shiva rescuing moon (Chandra or som) and giving refuge to him in his matted locks.

Story – How King Bali Became Powerful?

Pancha Kanchukas

Pancha Kanchukas are the five outer coverings or sheaths of consciousness in Kashmir Shaiva Philosophy. The five Kanchukas are:

Kala Vidya Raga Kaala and Niyati.
The background on which the pancha kanchukas remain steadily abiding is maya, the deluding aspect of Shiva, who is pure consciousness in essence. When maya is counted under the Kanchukas, the number becomes six – Sat Kanchukas.
