First of all, before going in detail, let’s throw light on the importance of this month. 

Sawan Month: Significance

The month of Sawan is considered special for the devotees of Lord Shiva as this month is his heart and soul. As per prevailing legends, Maa Parvati observed a long fast and remained drowned in deep meditation by detaching herself from worldly sorrows and happiness to get Lord Shiva as her husband. This is one of the reasons that Lord Shiva likes Sawan month very much. The followers of Sanatan Dharma from all the corners of the world offer water to Lord Shiva in his famous temples. Performing Rudrabhishek on Mondays falling during the Sawan month is considered to be extremely fruitful.      

The entire month is dedicated to Lord Shiva and it is believed that one who worships Lord Shiva with pious thoughts and devoted heart, gets blessed with the fulfillment of all wishes. Women pray to Lord Shiva and observe fast for the long life of their husbands. During this month, Kanwariyas walk barefooted by carrying Kawads on their shoulders, fill-up the Gangajal in their Kanwar from the pilgrimage sites, cover hundreds of kilometers and perform the Jalabhishek of Lord Shiva with the same water. Some of the Kanwariyas are seen alongside roads running in a group. They are dressed up in saffron colour.

Will there be a Kanwar Yatra or not in 2021?

Every year, the tradition of taking out Kanwar Yatra is followed but this year, the states have cancelled it due to the Corona Pandemic and fear of third wave. However, the natives can perform all the rituals at the worship place of their house or nearby temple with the Gangajal.

Legends from Puranas In Respect Of Kanwariyas

Very few people know that there is a very popular story related to the grand Kanwar Yatra, which is taken out every year. According to the story, when the ocean was being churned (Samudra Manthan) by both Devtas and Asuras (Gods and Demons respectively), fourteen gems were found. One of the gems was Halahal Vish or Poison.

It is said that this poison was so venomous that it could be dangerous for the whole world. In such a situation, Lord Shiva drank this poison to save the world from the wrath of this poison and kept it in his throat. Since the poison was extremely dangerous and poisonous, the throat of Lord Shiva turned blue, thereby giving him the name Neelkanth. At that moment, Ravana, the supreme devotee of Lord Mahadev, brought Gangajal in a Kanwar and anointed him with the same. It was only after this that Bholenath got rid of this poison.

Since then, Kanwariyas walk all the way to bring back Gangajal and perform Rudrabhishek of Lord Shiva.
