Shravani Somvar Vrat in Gujarat

Shravani Somvar is the Mondays in the month of Sawan or Shravan month. This month is of great significance and is dedicated to the worship of Shiva. As per traditional Guajrati calendar, Shravan month in 2017 is from July 24 to August 21. In a week, Monday is dedicated to Shiva and the Shravan Mondays are considered highly auspicious.

Men and women participate in Shravani Somvar Vrat. Men perform the vrat for peace, prosperity and happy married life. Married women perform it for long life of their husbands and for prosperity in the family. Unmarried women perform it to get a good husband.

The most important activity on Shravani Somvar is visit to a ShivaTemple. Here they listen to stories of Shiva and Parvati. Some people meditate chanting the ‘Om Namah Shivaya Mantra.’

Some people keep a fast on the day and take only a single meal in the afternoon.

Life should be like a river, always moving, never clinging, always ready to go into the unknown, always ready to risk the familiar for the unfamiliar. Osho
