Karthigai Somavaram 2022: The Most Powerful Karma-Removing Shiva Mondays
Karthigai Somavaram, the four most special Mondays of the year that fall in the month of Karthigai (Mid-Nov. to Mid-Dec.), is filled with transformative energies of the Supreme Dissolution Archetype- Shiva, and can help clear karma, rejuvenate your mind and body and enjoy overall prosperity and well-being.
According to sacred texts, Shiva emerged as a ‘Pillar of Light’ during Karthigai month to prove his supremacy to Brahma and Vishnu, the Archetypes of Creation and Protection, and diffuse their ego. Invoking Shiva during these sacred Mondays is believed to be a perfect way to receive his Divine grace and blessings for your spiritual and material upliftment.
AstroVed will invoke Shiva on his four auspicious Mondays in Karthigai month with Grand Karma-Clearing Ceremonies that include 4 Fire Labs along with his Sacred Hymns Chanting to Shiva in his Primordial Form- to dispel ignorance and illuminate the mind, Shiva as Lingeshwara (Shiva in the form of the Lingam)- to remove sins, fears and obstacles in life, Rudra- to eliminate negative thoughts and grant relationship blessings, and Mrityunjaya- to alleviate health problems and aid in the restoration of vitality. Additionally, we will perform 24 Special Poojas to Shiva to help you connect with his Divine vibrational energy and experience his grace to cleanse your karma and live a blessed, peaceful life.
Karthigai Somavaram Benefit: Shiva Resolves Afflictions & Bestows Health and Prosperity
Planet Moon (known as Soma in Sanskrit), who rules Monday, has a special connection with Shiva, who is also known as Someshwara (the one who wears the crescent Moon on his matted hair). As per the Puranas, the Moon was cursed by King Daksha to wane as he did not treat his 27 wives (Daksha’s daughters) equally. So, as his form and light started to wane, the Moon went into meditation, calling upon the blessings of Shiva.
When the Moon was in the last stage of waning, Shiva, pleased with his meditation, reduced the curse by placing him on his head in the form of the crescent Moon. According to the scriptures, during Karthigai Somavaram, Shiva reduced the curse of the Moon and blessed him. Likewise, propitiating Shiva on Karthigai Mondays can absolve your sins and bestow you with good health and affluence.
4 Grand Fire Labs Invoke Shiva’s Supreme Powers on 4 Karma-Dissolving Shiva Mondays
1st Monday: Shiva Chalisa Chanting with 4-Priest Shiva Gayatri Mantra Fire Lab
Shiva Chalisa is a sacred hymn of 40 verses that glorify Shiva as the Immortal, Gracious, and All-Pervading Lord of the Universe. According to sacred texts, Sage Markendaya was rescued by Shiva from the clutches of the God of Death, Yama, by chanting this hymn.
Shiva Gayatri Mantra is one of the most powerful Shiva mantras that praise him as the Primordial Cosmic Being who can illuminate your mind, destroy the veil of ignorance and grant you Divine wisdom to lead a successful life.
Performing this Fire Lab to Shiva by chanting the sacred hymns can help dispel the fear of death, absolve all sins, grant spiritual upliftment, and fulfill desires.
2nd Monday: Lingashtakam Chanting with 4-Priest Linga Ashtothara Shatanamavali Fire Lab
Composed by the great Sage Adi Sankaracharya, Lingashtakam (Octet in Praise of Shiva Lingam) invokes Shiva in the form of Lingam, the symbol of creation which signifies Satya (truth), Jnana (Knowledge), and Ananta (Infinity). Linga Ashtothara Shatanamavali (108 sacred names of Shiva Lingam) describes the Supreme Divinity and powers of the Lingam, which can instill auspiciousness, purify the mind and body, and eliminate all forms of suffering.
Performing a Fire Lab to Shiva in Lingam form by chanting these sacred hymns can help destroy past and present sins and negative thought patterns, elevate your intelligence and discernment abilities, and bestow a blissful life.

Performing this Fire Lab by chanting the sacred hymns of Rudra can help remove the malefic effects of Rahu and Saturn and snake-related afflictions, rejuvenate health, enhance unity in relationships, boost mental well-being, and bestow vitality, joy, and a happy life.
4th Monday: Maha Mrityunjaya Aksharamala Chanting with 4-Priest Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra Fire Lab

What Will I Receive?
You will receive the sacred gray ash powder from the Homa, blessed in the rituals. Keep this on your meditation altar and wear it on your forehead during meditation or at other times to expand the Divine blessings into your life.
Dr. Pillai explains this:
The ritual is the carbonization of thoughts. Carbon is our information-bearing atoms. The carbon residue (ash) given out as Prasad is to be placed on the third eye area of the participants and carries the blessings of the archetypes invoked.
AstroVed is not the Official Representative of the Powerspots and hence does not charge its members for the Powerspot Poojas and Prasad shipment included in the packages. However, the package cost includes proxy service delivery/ Pooja materials/ facilitation charges.
The domestic shipment of Prasad starts from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, a week after the entire set of rituals has been completed.
Due to the imposition of new lockdown measures, we regret to inform you that we will not be able to ship Prasad internationally for this service.
