Shiva got coolness from water
Renowned horoscope analyst Anish Vyas told that while Shiva was holding the poison, Mother Parvati kept his throat pressed, due to which the effect of the poison was only in the throat and the rest of the body remained untouched by its effect. Mahadev’s throat turned blue due to the effect of the poison. That’s why he is called ‘Neelkanth’. Due to the effect of poison, Mahadev had to bear unbearable heat. Indra had made rain to relieve Kailashpati from the heat of the poison. Shiva had consumed poison in the month of Sawan. That’s why this month good rain yoga is formed and to pacify the heat of Shiva, devotees offer cold water on the Shivling.
The famous prophet Anish Vyas told that in the month of Sawan, wake up early in the morning and take a bath and wear clean clothes. After this, anoint Lord Shiva with Ganga water while chanting the mantra Om Namah Shivaya. Offer water and milk on Shivling. Then perform aarti by offering flowers, bilva leaves, datura and other things. After that apply naivedya. It should be kept in mind that only sattvik things are offered to the Lord. After worship-aarti, chanting of Shiva Mantra should also be done.

It is believed that worshiping Shiva with devotion on these days fulfills all the wishes of the devotees.

So everyone went to Mahadev and prayed to him to save this world. Bholenath agreed to take the poison.
Sawan month between Corona
World famous prophet Anish Vyas told that every year Shiva devotees used to take out Kanwar Yatra in the month of Sawan. But this time due to the outbreak of Corona virus, the enthusiasm of Kanwar Yatra has cooled down. During Sawan, the Jalabhishek of Baba Bhole Bhandari will be done in temples according to the government guidelines and following social distancing. This time neither there will be a huge crowd of devotees in the temples nor will the processions take place. However, you can worship Mahadev, the god of gods, even at home.
A small Shivling should be kept in the house.
World famous horoscope analyst Anish Vyas told that fragmented idols of gods and goddesses should not be kept in the house, but Shivling can be kept, because Shivling is considered to be formless. For this reason it is not considered fragmented. A broken Shivling is also revered. Keep in mind that too big Shivling should not be kept in the house. Keeping a small Shivling in the house is auspicious. Avoid keeping Shivling bigger than the first knuckle of our thumb in the house. Along with Shiva, idols of Ganeshji, Mata Parvati, Nandi should also be kept. Puja should be started with Ganesh Puja.
take care of these things
Anish Vyas, a world-renowned prophet and horoscope analyst, told that according to the scriptures, devotees should avoid eating brinjal in the month of Sawan because many people consider this vegetable to be impure.

If you have also observed a fast on Sawan Monday to please Bhole Baba, then offer water in the mentioned auspicious time, the entire Shravan month is good for chanting, austerity and meditation, but Monday has a special significance in this. Monday is the day of the moon planet and the controller of the moon is Lord Shiva. Therefore, worshiping on this day not only gives the blessings of the moon but also Lord Shiva. Any person who has health problems, marriage difficulties or poverty prevails. If one worships Lord Shiva on every Monday of Sawan lawfully, then one gets freedom from all the problems.
