The month of Sawan has come and all the devotees of Shiva have gone to the devotion of Lord Shiva. It is said that in the month of Shravan, the most important element is the Belpatra, i.e., the Bilva leaves, increases and very few people know that the sacred legend of the origin of the Bilva leaf is very famous. Today we're going to tell you the story right there.
The story of the Bilva:- According to the Skanda Purana, once the sweat drop of Mata Parvati fell on the Mandrachal mountain and the Bilva tree emerged from it, as the Bilva tree emerged from the sweat of Mata Parvati. So it has all the forms of Mother Parvati. They live in the form of a church at the root of the tree, in the form of Maheshwari in its stems, and in the branches of the South and the Parvati in the leaves. Fruits in Katyani form and flowers inhabit Gauri and apart from all these forms, the form of Maa Lakshmi resides in the entire tree.
At the same time, being a reflection of Mata Parvati in the Bilva, it is offered to Lord Shiva and he is pleased to offer a Bilva leaf to Lord Shiva and fulfils the wishes of the devotee. It is said that a person who cannot go to a pilgrimage place if he worships the root part of the Bilwa tree in the month of Sravana and offers water in it, he is rewarded for the philosophy of all the pilgrimages.
