Siva has a special preference, it seems for Abhisheka offerings. And
He confers or rather rains blessing on the sevarthis
disproportionate to the zeal and involvement expressed in
offering this abhisheka service to HIM on days auspicious feel
crossed the oceans on its satisfactory completion. As the
benefits one receives are out of proportion to the efforts
and money spent, the craze for offering, needless to mention
reaches the peaks. Definite result is sighted even at mere decision,
much less - at the mooting of proposals. Hence Siva acuired an
epithet honourable and title covetable on - `Abhisheka Priyah Smah'.
He is extremely of bathing Himself with various objects, such as
Panchamrit, ikshurasa, gandhodhaka, akshatodaka, rudrakshqdal
phalodaka, pushopadaka, durvodaka etc. In all these water is used
plentifully and He prefers it too. He a lulling sensation when
the water saturated with cooling is materials poured over His entire
body. His option for this and craze for continuous pouring is
justified on many grounds. And when pleased with that ritual, His
conferring of boons naturally turns bounteous and generous.
Profusion is un more than the expected.
