🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 Benefits of Water (Abhishekam) on Shivling:
1) Practice of cleaning oneself: 🌊
The divine Shiva does not need to be cleansed, one who pours water on the #Shivlinga cleanses his own soul. Shiva linga isn’t just a stone or a statue, which acts as a medium of connecting to the Mahadev, but is also an environment purifying device which cleanses the aura of the whole place & absorbs all negativity. It acts like an arc reactor, which disperses this evil energy & converts it into more positivity. But this conversion of energies is an exothermic reaction; i.e. it produces heat while the conversion takes place & so, this needs to cool down to work efficiently, just like an arc reactor. So, devotees pour water and milk to cool the #Shivalingam, & in turn wash away all the heat and help purify the environment even more. For instance, if your head is hot you cannot think & make a proper decision. Only a cool & calm head can make proper decisions.
2) Heat converts into energy:🔥
Another explanation for pouring of milk & water comes from the ancient Samudra Manthan, when Devatas & Asuras were churning the ocean to claim the spoils that came forth. Finally ‘Halahal’ poison came out of the churning, the strongest poison which was capable of killing both Asuras & Devatas alike. To save the world from damnation, Lord Shiva drank the poison & kept it in his throat. This poison produced so much heat that the Devtas performed Ganga Abhishek on #LordShiva & poured holy waters of #Ganga in massive amounts on Lord Shiva. This is also considered as a valid reason that pouring of water on #lingam keeps the heat of 'Halahal' at bay.
3) Purifies Thinking:😇
While you pour water on the #Shivling, you also chant the Mantra of #OmNamahShivaya which involves you in the prayer mentally as well as physically & consequently uplifts your mind & body.
