In Shiva Purana, we are looking at the important days for the main Devatas.
Ganesha, we have already seen.
Next, Surya Deva.
All Sundays of the lunar month Shravana.
Any Saptami on which Hasta nakshatra is also there.
And also Shukla paksha Saptami of the lunar month Magha.
This is also called Ratha Saptami.
These days are very auspicious for worshiping Surya Deva.
Next Sri Hari.
Wednesdays of the lunar months Jyeshta and Bhadrapada.
Dwadashi and Shravana nakshatra together on the same day.
These are good for an abundance of wealth.
The whole month of Shravana is good for the worship of Lord Vishnu and this is particularly for health.
We earlier saw special dana for each lunar month.
If you worship Lord Vishnu on any Dwadashi, it will give results of all these danas.
On any Dwadashi, invite 12 noble brahmins, worship them with the sixteen upachras after designating each one with one of the 12 names of the Lord -Keshava, Narayana .... like that.
So when you are worshiping the first person, you should say - Keshavaya namaha, asanam samarpayami, Keshavaya namaha padyam samarpayami...
For the second person - Narayanaya namaha asanam samarpayami, Narayanaya namaha padyam samarpayami...
Like this all 16 upacharas for all the 12.
Of course in the place of naivedyam, full-fledged bhojanam.
This is very very good for getting the blessings of Sri Hari.
This you can do with 12 names of other Devatas also.
You can do with 12 names of Ganesha to get blessings of Ganesha... like that.
For Devi -
The whole solar month of Karkataka or Karka is good for worshiping Devi
and also Navami and Mrigashira nakshatra on the same day.
Mondays are good for Devi.
Such worship will grant all desires
Ashwina Shukla paksha Navami, this is Mahanavami.
For Lord Shiva -
Sundays, all Chaturdashis, particularly Krishna paksha Chaturdashis, Ardra nakshatra, particularly Ardra of the solar month Dhanus or lunar month of Margashirsha.
This is the Ardra darshanam day.
Also, Magha Krishna Chaturdashi which is Shivaratri.
Shivaratri puja is very auspicious for long life and for warding off untimely death.
Lunar month Jyeshta, both Chaturdashi and Ardra nakshatra are good for Shiva worship.
In the lunar month of Karthika, it is very good to worship devatas on their respective days.
Sundays - Shiva and Surya.
Mondays - Devi like that.
Puja, japa, homa, brahmana samaradhana, all are good in the month of Karthika.
results are all kinds of comforts, relief from health problems, particularly mental problems.
On Karthika Sunday, if you worship Surya and give danam of oil and cotton, it will give relief from skin diseases.
Dana of the oshadhi called Haritaki. pepper, clothes, and milk on this day will give relief from tuberculosis. also brahmana bhojanam on Karthika Ravi vasara.
Dana of lamp and ghee will give relief from epilepsy.
On Karthika Somavara, worship of Lord shiva is very good for improving financial position.
On Kathika Tuesdays, worship Karthikeya also do dana of residence, land, household gadgets, lamp, bell, you will get vak siddhi.
Whatever you say will come out true.
For getting good progeny, worship Vishnu on Wednesdays of the lunar month Karthika also do danam of curd rice.
Thursdays of karthika month is for Brahma.
Direct worship of Brahma is not done except in rare temples like Pushkar.
So, what Shiva Purana says is to worship Brahma with wealth meaning do charity.
Spend money for noble acts such as anna danam and dedicate it to Brahma deva.
Also do dana of gold, honey, and ghee.
This will confer all kinds of enjoyments.
Santana dharma, the concept is very clear; give and then get back, get back manifold.
Give 1 get 10.
Give money, give time, give physical effort, give attention.
There are no freebies.
On Karthika masa Fridays if you worship Ganesha and give dana of chandana, flowers, and do anna dana you will get a lot of comforts and enjoyments.
Dana of gold and silver on this day is good for relief from female infertility.
On Saturdays of Karthika masa, you should worship the Trimurtis and also the Dikpala Devataa, Diggajas, Nagas, Dhanwantari, and Ashwini Kumaras, these are all good for health and relief from diseases.
