Performing this puja bestows one with health, wealth and happiness and offers protection against enemies, negativity and evil.

Later, flowers especially lotus flowers are used to decorate the Shivling and apart from flowers, leaves of the Bilva Patra tree are also used for decoration purpose. After all these rituals, aarti of 108 diyas is performed at the end and prasad is distributed among the Sadhaks and devotees who attended the puja.
