The coming Kumbh Mela will be held in 2021 in Haridwar, a religious event which will be attended by millions of devotees around the world. Hindu religion believes that the uplifting of humankind only happens after the victory of good over evil. Almost all of our festivals reflect the essence of the good, the God, and the all-encompassing energy of power & belief.

Similarly, the root of Mahakumbh (Kumbh Mela) belongs to the tale of searching for the “nectar of immortality” (Amrit Kalash) to end the war between the demons and the gods. Mythological, Lord Vishnu (residing on the ocean-bed, resting on Ananta – the great serpent) suggested the gods churn the ocean with the serpent Ananta as a rope to bring out the pot containing the nectar of immortality. Lord Vishnu asked the gods and the demons to churn the milky ocean together.

And whoever drank the nectar would be immortal and win the war. After so many favorable and unfavorable instances, Gods won the war, and Kumbh Mela is celebrated to pay gratitude to gods, spiritual powers, and purity.

That is the reason why countless devotees come to bathe in the holy river, the Ganges at the sacred heart, where the divinity centers.

Kumbh Mela Rotation

In every three years of duration, Kumbh Mela is organized by rotation in Haridwar, Allahabad, Nasik & Ujjain. Also, Ardha Kumbh Melas are held at Haridwar & Allahbad in every six years’ duration. This way, Maha Kumbh, in a particular city, is organized after 12 years.

Mahalaya Shradh - Tarpan Puja For All The Souls Who Left Us Due To COVID-19

Mahalaya Shradh - Tarpan Puja For All The Souls Who Left Us Due To COVID-19

The year 2020 has shocked the humankind by representing an unexpected catastrophe by the name COVID-19. The coronavirus has brought countless unfortunate sequences with it. This virus has been an uninvited and unwanted guest, which has been rooting out the whole world slowly-slowly.

Out of all the fatal situations, this virus has caused like affecting people’s businesses, jobs, and routines badly, the biggest loss it caused is to humanity. It has bereaved many valuable lives and left the closed ones with no option but to grieve.

Being a part of the humankind, we cannot resurrect and retrieve what has gone, but we can make the bearing peaceful by praying for the gone souls’ restfulness. Going this way, we at SHIVA Trust, by following the very religious values of Hinduism, during the time of devout Hindu Mahalaya Shradh, contributed prayerful tribute and condolences to all the known and unknown souls who came across unexpected demise due to the harsh effect of COVID-19. To let their souls rest in divine solace and witness peace, we worshiped the holy river, the Ganges, and Lord Vishnu with all the Vedic rituals, followed by devoting libations & lighting lamps.

With our oblation, we prayed to the almighty to give the whole world the power to fight this ill-starred virus & disease. We adore and revere the divine deity with a hope to soon enter a revolutionized world that would be free of all the deadly viruses and misfortune.

May God bless the humankind & save us all from the mishap that’s ever going to happen!
