The journey towards a transcendent believe

According to hindu mythology, lord Shiva is one of the most powerful god among all. It is believed that he is the creator of this universe and he can destroy it in a second. In the month of August ( bengali sravan), it is believed that Shiva was born on a monday. So this is a ritual in West Bengal that many people went to worship and make a wish to lord Shiva every monday during the entire month.
