Shivalinga Puja – The correct way to offer Jal on Shivalingam

Linga represents the totality of God, the formless Shiva, hence Shivalinga Puja is considered the best way to worship Lord Shiva.

 

Correct way of Shivalinga Puja

Shiva devotees offer Jal (water) and Milk on the Shivalingam. Various other items are also offered on Shivalingam during Abhishek, like Panchamrit, Sugarcane Juice, Pure Ghee, Mustard Oil, etc. Most of the devotees though offer Jal and Milk. Although the most important part of worshipping the God is having a pure heart and faith in the God, but as per Hindu scriptures water should be offered in the following manner :
