Lord Shiva Gayatri:

Om Tat Purushaya Vidhmahe

Maha Devaya Dheemahi

Tanno Rudra Prachothayat

Abhishekam for Lord Shiva is done every day at 9.30 AM.

Lord Shiva represents the aspect of the Supreme Being (Brahman of the Upanishads) that continuously dissolves to recreate in the cyclic process of creation, preservation, dissolution and recreation of the universe. Owing to His cosmic activity of dissolution and recreation, the words destroyer and destruction have been erroneously associated with Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva is the Lord of mercy and compassion. He protects devotees from evil forces such as lust, greed, and anger. He grants boons, bestows grace and awakens wisdom in His devotees.

Also, a unique addition to the Parashakthi Temple is a Maragatha Lingam which is made of Emerald Rock and has been placed in the Temple for worship on MahaShivarathri day. Devotees may pray and touch this Lingam on Mahashivarathri. This emerald lingam from India symbolizing Shiva-Shakthi is a Sri-Vidya Tantric symbol. Worshipping the Lingam is believed to save people from rebirths resulting in union of the soul with God. Our Temple devotees are fortunate to have this opportunity on Shivarathri day to offer our prayers to Lord Shiva.
