Shivratri Pooja

Saturday 9 March 2013
13:00
Chetwynd Room, Kings College, Cambridge
facebook

Shivaratri Pooja has been given tremendous significance in Hindu mythology. According to the Shiva Purana, sincere worship of Lord Shiva yields merits including spiritual growth for the devotees. 

The Pooja is performed using six different dravyas including milk, yoghurt, honey, ghee, sugar and water. Each of these signify particular virtues that we hope to attain from the Pooja:

-Milk is for the blessing of piousness
-Yogurt is for prosperity
-Honey is for sweet speech 
-Ghee is for victory
-Sugar is for happiness
-Water is for purity

Come along to engage in this age-old tradition and end the term in a spiritual way!
