by Ishan Kailani on February 06, 2024

Namaste, devotees of Lord Shiva! At Advitya, we believe in fostering spiritual connections through the embodiment of divinity in our homes. In this blog, we present a step-by-step guide to performing the revered Shiv Parivar Pooja, inviting the cosmic energy of Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati, Lord Ganesha, and Lord Kartikeya into your sacred space.

Step 1: Choose the Perfect Shiv Parivar Idol

Begin your spiritual journey by selecting a pristine shiva Parivar for your pooja room. Opt for a finely crafted brass Shiv Parivar idol that resonates with positive energy. The idol should ideally feature Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati, Lord Ganesha, and Lord Kartikeya in harmonious unity.

Step 2: Cleanse and Prepare the Pooja Space

Before commencing the pooja, ensure your pooja room is clean and sanctified. Cleanse the space with incense and sprinkle holy water to purify the aura. Place a clean cloth or mat as a seat for the divine family.

Step 3: Arrange the Shiv Parivar Idol

Position the Shiv Parivar idol in the centre of the pooja space, ensuring that each deity is clearly visible. Lord Shiva, adorned with the crescent moon, should be at the forefront, symbolizing the supreme consciousness. 

Step 4: Offer Water to the Shivling

Begin the pooja by offering water to the shivling with shiv parivar, representing the cosmic energy of Lord Shiva. Chant the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra to invoke divine blessings and seek protection from negative forces.

Step 5: Light the Sacred Lamp

Illuminate the pooja space by lighting a ghee lamp, signifying the dispelling of darkness and the awakening of spiritual knowledge. Let the flickering flame symbolize the presence of divine light in your home. 

Step 6: Perform the Panchopachara Puja

Engage in the Panchopachara Puja by offering five essential elements – Gandha (sandalwood paste), Pushpa (flowers), Dhupa (incense), Deepa (lamp), and Naivedya (food). Each offering represents your devotion and reverence towards the divine family.

Step 7: Recite Mantras and Stotras

Enrich your pooja with the recitation of Shiva Mantras and Stotras. Chant the Shiva Panchakshari Mantra (Om Namah Shivaya) and other sacred hymns to connect with the divine energies of Lord Shiva and his religious family.

Step 8: Seek Blessings and Express Gratitude

Conclude the Shiv Parivar Pooja by seeking the blessings of Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati, Lord Ganesha, and Lord Kartikeya. Express your gratitude for their divine presence in your home and ask for their guidance in your spiritual journey.

Performing the Shiv Parivar Pooja with dedication and devotion brings tranquillity and positive energy to your home.
