Mahashivratri is celebrated every year on the 14th day of the Krishna Paksha or Falgun month. This year the Mahashivratri is on March 1. On this day, Lord Shiva is worshiped with belpatra, thorn apple, cannabis, white sandalwood, white flowers, seasonal fruits, Ganges water and cow’s milk. Fasting Mahashivratri relieves suffering and helps to deal with problems. Below are some bhogs offered to Lord Shiva on this day:
According to the legend, Lord Shiva loves malpua. You can make malpua and add a little cannabis powder to it. This will also enhance the taste of malpua.
You can prepare thandai with milk, sugar and cannabis. You should also add cashews, almonds, pistachios, fennel, poppy seeds, cardamom and saffron to the thandai to make a luscious prasad.
You can give thandai a whiff of cannabis in lassi and offer it to Lord Shiva on Mahashivratri. To do this, add some milk, sugar and about 1 teaspoon of cannabis powder and mix it well with a churn. Besides offering it to God, you can also serve it to the guests.
In addition to sweets, you can also prepare savory snacks. For this purpose, you can prepare hemp dumplings. All you need to do is add cannabis powder to regular pakoras and offer it to Lord Shiva as prasad. Remember not to put onion or garlic in it.
It is great if you can offer halwa to Lord Shiva on the day of Mahashivratri. You can make this pudding with semolina or buckwheat. Be sure to add dry fruit.
You can also offer Makhana Kheer to Bholenath. This plain looking kheer is made by adding a lot of dry fruit. Roasted makhana is used instead of rice in Makhana kheer. You can also use saffron and cardamom powder to enhance the taste.
