MODES OF SIVA PUJA

Siva's Preference 

Lord 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.
