relationship between lord shiva and rain

There is a deep connection between the monsoon rains and Lord Shiva. There is also a mythological reason associated with this, according to which, the churning of the ocean took place in the month of Sawan itself and Shivji himself drank the Halahal poison that came out of the sea for the welfare of the people. Due to this, there was intense burning sensation in his throat and body. After this, all the deities offered cool water to Lord Shiva, the coolness of which reduced his burning sensation. It is believed that the monsoon rains provide coolness to the body of Lord Shiva.

Describing the glory of the month of Sawan, Lord Shiva himself says, in my three eyes the sun is the right eye, the moon is the left and the fire is the middle eye. The month of Sawan begins when the Sun transits in Cancer. Sun is hot which gives heat whereas Moon gives coolness. In such a situation, when the Sun enters Cancer, it rains heavily and Shivji gets relief from its coolness. That’s why Shivji loves the monsoon rains and has a deep attachment to it.
