Sravan month is very auspicious for Hindus as this is month when Lord Siva is being specially worshipped.

Devotees engage in various spiritual practices during the month of Shravan, including fasting, prayer, and meditation. Mondays, which are dedicated to Lord Shiva, are especially significant during this month. Many people observe a fast on these days, known as "Shravan Somvar Vrat," and offer special prayers to seek the blessings of Lord Shiva for their well-being and the well-being of their families.

According to Hindu mythology, the Samudra Manthan took place during the month of Shravan. During this various divine items emerged from the ocean, including the poison known as "halahala." To protect the universe from the effects of this poison, Lord Shiva consumed it, holding it in his throat, which turned blue. For this event he is called "Neelkantha" (one with a blue throat). All the Devas offered him water to cool down the effect of the poison. Devotees seek blessings and protection by carrying and offering water to Lord Siva throughout thr Month of Sravan

Devi Parvati also worshipped Siva and did her meditation ( Tapasya) in the Month of Sravan.

Hence, Sravan month is very very important and is celebrated in entire India by offering prayers to the Supreme power.

Wish Lord Siva bless all of us and help in making our Nation Best in the world.
