Solah somvar vrat katha book is specifically written for everybody who wishes to chant Shivji's Katha and read the hindi version in english.

The solah somvar fast is very easy to follow. One must take a vow to follow the vrat for 16 mondays with a pure heart and devotion.

The vrat begins with waking up early in the morning, taking a bath and chanting Lord Shiva's name. Then organising all the things required to complete the Pooja (i.e.pooja samagri).

You can either visit the temple, where the deity is placed or if you are doing the pooja at home then you must keep the organised samagri in front of the Lord Shiva idol. You must begin with cleaning the Lord Shiva/Shivling idol by pouring water/milk and placing essential things of pooja in front of it Then decorating the picture/shivling with flowers, fruits, betel leaves and diya (lamp).

Clean the altar and light the diya (lamp) with gingelly oil. Then read the vrat katha and chant the lord shiva mantra, "Om Namah Shivaya" and offer prayers with flowers to Lord Shiva. Then you can complete the pooja by offering betel leaves, honey, curd, milk, water, sugar, jaggery, coconut, fruits and the sweet dish. You may always try to prepare sweet dish which should be offered to Lord Shiva, at home.

Now you must recite the 16 somvar vrat katha and conclude the pooja with an aarati or making a wish and chanting Lord Shiva's name. In the evening you may light a diya (lamp) around Lord Shiva but if not then one must always chant Lord Shiva's name while breaking the fast in the evening. One may keep the fast throughout the day and can eat prasad and fruits after completion of pooja but people who cannot keep the fast throughout the day because of health issues can also have fruits and milk in the day.

After completion of all the 16 somvar (mondays), on the 17th somvar (Monday), one must do the udayapan (final prayer) by offering betel leaves, honey, curd, milk, water, sugar, jaggery, coconut, fruits, sweet dish (better if made at home) to Lord Shiva, Lord Shiva's devotees, people around and by consuming themselves.
