Why Lord Shiva Worshipped During Sawan Season

Why Lord Shiva Worshipped During Saavan Season 

Shiva is called the God of Gods i.e. Mahadev. As soon as the month of Sawan starts, the echoes of every Mahadev and Bol bom are heard in every region of India. On Shravan Mondays, Shiva is especially adorned in every region. The reason for this is that the worship of Shiva and Parvati in the month of Sawan has been given a lot of importance in our Hindu religious texts. In this Month, worship of Shiva is considered to be particularly fruitful. The reason for this is that according to the mythological belief of Hinduism, Sawan month is considered as the month of Shankar. 

Why Saavn is so auspicious season spiritually

According to a story in this regard, when Sanat Kumaras asked Mahadev the reason to love him in the month of Sawan, Mahadev Lord Shiva told that when Goddess Sati sacrificed her body in fire with the power of yoga in her father Daksha's house, before that Goddess Sati had pledged to have Mahadev as a husband in every birth.
In her second birth, Goddess Sati was born in the name of Parvati in the Himalayas and daughter in the house of Queen Maina. Parvati fasted harshly in the month of Sawan and married him by pleasing him.Pleasing Lord Shiva as a husband was not an easy task because it requires utter focus and devotion. After this, there was a special period for Sawan Shiva devotion. This is the reason why girls fast in the month of Sawan for the attainment of a suitable groom by seeking lord Shiva blessings. 

There is also another story for this holy month , which is state below but I don't have any scriptural reference for this story as soon as I get any I will share her with my readers.
According to Hindu Mythology, the Samudra Manthan or churning of the ocean took place in this month. During the churning, the poison “halahala” came out and Lord Shiva drank the poison to save the world. 

Due to poison his body temperature increased.All Devi-Devtas tried to reduce the temperature, but nothing helped. So Lord Shiva wore the moon on this head which reduced the temperature.
It is also believed that Lord Indra rained heavily to reduce the temperature which became a reason to pour water on Lord Shiva in the month of Sawan.

According to scripture, Devi Sati also sacrificed her in this month and before dying she swore that she would marry Shiva in every succeeding life.
