One of the most prominent Jyotirlingas out of the twelve is the one that resides in Shri Mahakal Temple. This temple is located in one of the most gorgeous cities in the country- Ujjain. We all are familiar with the term Rudrabhishek but very few actually know the meaning of it. Rudra is another name for Lord Shiva and the term Abhishek means pouring water/milk. Hence, Rudrabhishek is the ritual of bathing, shivling with water/milk etc. It also helps you to get rid of your sins and purify yourself to lead a better life. The Rudrabhishek at Mahakaleshwar temple is an extremely popular and prestigious ritual that Devotees gather to witness from round the globe.
During this ritual, the linga is bathed with a mixture of holy water, ghee, milk and honey. This mixture is also what we call Panchamrit. Now, you can experience this Puja and take part in the rituals virtually from your home. Well, My Tirth India made that possible for all the devotees. You can request for an online puja.

The Divine Rudrabhishek At Mahakaleshwar:
Shiva is the epitome of life and as well as death. He represents the living as well as the non-living. In short, he represents the entire universe including how it functions. Body smeared with ashes, crescent moon, wearing tiger skin, carrying a snake around the neck, ma Ganga flowing from his head, Trishul in his hand and the third eye on his forehead- this is how Shiva is. He is usually very calm and still but the opening of his third eye can bring immense destruction. Sometimes, he immerses himself in a cosmic dance and sometimes he just smiles. Hence, worshipping him and being his devotee will bring a lot of bliss and positivity in your life. It will help you eliminate the negative energy around. If you please him, he will grant all your wishes.
The Impetus For Rudrabhishek:
According to the ancient Vedic scriptures, it is one of the most significant spiritual Puja that one can do to please Bholenath. The devotees bathe the Shivling with the Panchamrit mixture and pray to him with full dedication. This will help you prosper and be happy.
Performing the Rudrabhishek invoked Lord Shiva or Rudra who is the strongest force in the cosmic world. He not only protects his devotees but also destroys all the evil forces. Doing his puja blesses you with wealth, health, peace and comfort. It helps you fight against the obstacles in your life. You can also simply offer him holy water with pure devotion and he will be happy. He is beyond all the materialistic pleasures and enjoys the love of his devotees in any form. If your love for him is pure, he will bless you. Doing the Rudrabhishek pushes you one step closer to salvation. Also, if you want to take part in the Puja observe a fast.
