Let's explore the special remedies for Masik Shivratri.
Remedies for Masik Shivratri Vrat (Masik Shivratri Vrat Upay):
Wealth Acquisition - On the night of Masik Shivratri, perform an abhishek (ritual bath) of Lord Shiva with yogurt mixed with a little honey. On this day, offer rice pudding (kheer) to Lord Shiva. It is said that this remedy opens the paths to wealth acquisition and is highly effective in maintaining the happiness and prosperity of the family.
A Handful of Rice Can Do Wonders - If you have been experiencing mental or physical pain for a long time, on the day of Masik Shivratri, take a handful of rice to the Shiva temple, and after offering it to Lord Shiva, donate the remaining rice to someone in need. Rice is considered Lord Shiva's favorite food, and its use can put an end to all troubles.
Saturn Will Not Hinder Employment - Those facing difficulties in their jobs due to the influence of Saturn's Sade Sati in their birth chart should start observing the fast of Masik Shivratri. On this day, write "Om" on belpatra with sandalwood and black sesame seeds, then offer it to the Shiva Lingam. Finally, perform an abhishek of the Shiva Lingam with sugarcane juice. This remedy pacifies Saturn and brings relief from the challenges posed by Saturn.
Enemies Will Not Trouble You - If someone has been troubling you for a long time, and you want to get rid of them, on the day of Masik Shivratri, light a ghee lamp in the Shiva temple and chant mantra 108 times. It is believed that this remedy prevents opponents from creating obstacles in matters related to wealth, job, business, or legal matters.
Rahu Will Not Hinder Progress - Due to the unfavorable effects of Rahu, a person may deviate from the path of progress and may not be able to achieve their goals. In such a situation, on the day of Masik Shivratri, during the auspicious Nishita time, perform an abhishek of Lord Shiva with durva (Bermuda grass) and kush (Darbha grass) soaked in water. This reduces the malefic effects of Rahu and brings joy and happiness into one's life.
