I am going on Pilgrimage for Maha Shivratri 2008


Finally, our kanwar construction is complete!! Today at 17:00 we (Divya Shakti Boys) are going to head towards Ganga Talao (Grand Bassin). The Mahashivratri festival will be celebrated on 05th March in Mauritius. There has been controversy around the date.

In the morning, Pundit Ji explained the importance of carrying a Kanwar: to put the bottle of sacred water collected from the Pari Talao and to return to offer the water to Lord Shiva by carrying the Kanwar on shoulders.

I will be absent on Uni and I apologise for the Programming session on Tuesday 4 March which will not be able to take place. On Wednesday 05, our group is invited for the Char Pahar ki puja which will take place from 06pm to 06am. Again a bit difficult to come to uni on Thursday 7. Finally, all the preparations are made. Time to have a good rest to replenish this body. May Lord Shiva bless our group and all the devotees for this pilgrimage. Om Namah Shivaye..

  1. U see u didn’t believe me when i was telling you about the importance of the Kanwar.
    In fact, the sacred water though in a bottle or lota, shouldn’t be kept on the floor/ground, and thus the use of Kanwar or Kandhawar(the cloth you use to place the bottles and then hang around your neck).
