                             Importance of Shravan Month and Shravan Somvar 2015 Vrat
 Shravan  is a month of austerity and simplicity. People observe fasts and prayers in this holy month. This is the time when Lord Shiva drank the poisonous Halahala that emanated from the churning of the ocean (Samudra Manthan) for the quest of the Nectar (ambrosia). As he drank the poison, Goddess Parvati held his neck to stop him from drinking it and he held it in his throat, making it go blue- Hence the name – Neelakantha (the One with the Blue throat).
