Chief Minister and Goraksha Peethadhishwar Yogi Adityanath performed Rudrabhishek at Gorakhnath temple in Gorakhpur on Monday and prayed for the well-being of the people and the world.
It is believed that performing Rudrabhishek on the Chaturthi Tithi of Krishna Paksha brings immense joy to Lord Shiva, leading to the fulfilment of the wishes of the devotees.
Within the Shakti temple situated on the first floor of the math, Yogi performed the Rudrabhishek, presenting offerings such as vilva patra and lotus flowers to Lord Shiva. After Rudrabhishek, he performed Havan and Aarti amidst chanting of Vedic mantras and wished the people of the state a healthy, happy, prosperous, and peaceful life.
Post the Rudrabhishek ceremony, the CM participated in ‘gauseva’ at the Gorakhnath Temple’s cowshed. He also inquired about the well-being of the cows and fed them jaggery and roti.
