SC: No ‘Bhang Shringar’ And ‘Panchamrit’ Use On Mahakaleshwar Temple Shivling

Considering the safety of the shrinking Shivling at the Mahakaleshwar temple, SC has ordered temple authorities to only use RO water, rather than Gangajal for ‘Jal Abhishek’ on Friday.

Ujjaini Vidwat Parishad had stated that the ‘Shiv Lingam’ in the sanctum of the Mahakal Temple is shrinking. The Supreme Court has approved the new standards set for the  Ujjain’s famous Temple of Lord Shiva.

“Bhaang Shingar” and ‘Panchamrit’ are the main reasons behind shrinkage…

Although the temple committee has a different perspective in accordance with the shrinkage as compared to the Ujjaini Vidwat Parishad.

The Parishad also debated over the issue of ‘Shiv Lingam shrinkage,’ and they have resulted that it’s due to the excess ‘Bhaang Shingar and ‘Panchamrit’ (milk, ghee curd, sugar, and honey).

The Parishad members also told them to limit the quantity of the ‘Panchamrit’ being delivered to the ‘Shiv Lingam’ at the temple. 

The highly concerned court made a committee of experts and ordered them to visit Mahakaleshwartemple to note down the status of the matter.

Followers can only take 1/2 a liter of RO water with them for ‘Jal Abhishek’…..

Earlier on September 7, the expert committee including the officials of  Geological Survey of India (GSI) and Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) said that ‘Bhaang offering’ is not the only reason behind the shrinkage of the lingam.

The apex court has also limited the quantity of milk to not use more than 1.25 liters for ‘dugdh Abhishek’.
