In my family, different family members do it differently...
but yes I agree if you have faith in Shivji and pray to him, you do not need to fast- because if you dont believe and just do it because your family does it- then there is no point...
but sometimes you cant because of health problems, in that case your health comes first - there is a saying in gujarati- pehla dehh pachi dev (first comes your health then god-meaning fasts and all)

gujaratis usually eat fruits and potato products.
But on shivratri - my family does not eat or drink anything (drink if only you need to, and we take prasad)

There are also Pradosh Vrats too (on the 13th lunar day- so twice a month)...



thanks. true even in north india ppl believe that one needs not to fast as health comes first but then others say differently. depends how strictly you follow.

in punjab, ppl usually eat fruit/milk, also some eat roti with yoghurt either at lunch or dinner, but no salt or potato.

What is Pradosh Vrat? heard about it but have no knowledge regarding this vrat.

Bhagvan Shiv is Bholenaath! His all merciful and impressed rather quickly with advent devotion from the devotee towards him. One does not need to follow any such rule as I know. My mother always said pour the ganges water over our narmedeshwar shiv lingam with utmost faith and prayer. Lord Shiva grants his devotees all his wishes!

yes, for lord siva bhakti is main. phalam-fruits, pushpam-flowers, toyam-water any thing with bhakti is accepted by him. in the show they have already shown that sati prayed holding bilva patramSmile---- satya

Madanika is a fictional character,she doesn't exist,in terms with the Mythological story line of the show
,a Madanika is basically a figuriene of a Dancer that is part of the architecture of Vishnu and Shiva temples
also there is a character by the name of Madanika (a slave to the main character) in a play called Charudutta that was a play in 6th AD ,which was later adapted in a film called Utsav
but she doesnt have any mythological connection

My Family are basically Shiva worshipers,and every time at Ganesh Chaturthi,infact even before the Ganesh Puja,one day earlier we do the Gauri Pooja-where we install a Gauri on a coconut with all the finery of a married woman-magalsutra,sindoor,bangels,sati etc
why is this pooja conducted?
also Gauri is a name of Sati or Parvati?some sites refer to Sati as gauri while some say Gauri was a name of Parvati,

Shruti, Gauri is another name of Mata Parvati. She had very fair complexion so She was called Gauri (fair woman) & She was Parvat Himalaya's daughter so Parvati. Both are same. & Maa Sati is Her previous birth. Sati Mata sacrificed Herself in the Daksh Yagna & reincarnated as Gauri or Parvati in Himalaya's house. She married Lord Shiv in that incarnation too. So Sati, Gauri & Parvati, all are same.
