Significance of Sawan Somwar

The observance of Sawan Somwar Vrat has been a long-standing tradition. While the entire month of Shravan is dedicated to Lord Shiva, Mondays or Somwars are considered to be more auspicious and are generally the day associated with the almighty. Because of this, it is believed that observing a stringent fast on Mondays during the sacred month of Sawan will reap great benefits. Traditionally women started observing the Solah Somwar Vrat, which began in the month of Sawan and went on for the next four months. This fast was believed to help them find a suitable partner by seeking Lord Shiva’s blessings for the same. Sawan Somwar 2023 Fasting Dos and Don’ts: From Shivling Puja to Bhang-Dhatura Offerings, Everything You Want to Know.
