I bow down to the Lord of Uma (Parvathi), the divine Guru, the cause of the universe. I bow down to the Lord who is adorned with snake and wears tiger skin, the Lord of all creatures. I bow down to the Lord whose three eyes are the sun, moon and fire and to whom Lord Vishu is near. I bow down to the Lord who is the refuge of all devotees and the giver of boons, Shiva Shankara.

Lord Shiva’s transformative energy to absolve sins, rejuvenate mind and body, and enjoy a prosperous life is abundantly available during the Tamil month of Karthigai (mid–November to mid–December). According to the scriptures, during this sacred month, Shiva revealed himself as infinite fire. Planet Moon (known as Soma in Sanskrit), who rules Monday, has a special connection with Shiva, also known as Someshwara (the one who wears the crescent Moon on his matted hair). Mondays are always very auspicious for Shiva, and Karthigai Somavaram refers to the four most special Mondays of the year that fall in the month of Karthigai.
