About Bel Patra Mala

Significance of Bel Patra

The Bel Patra, are the leaves of the Bel Tree, also called Bilva Patra in Sanskrit and the Botanical name of the Bel Tree is Aegle Marmelos. There is a direct connection in the mind of Hindu devotees between Bel Patra (Bilva Patra) and offering the trifoliate Bel Patra to Lord Shiva or Shivling. The Bel Patra are leaves of the Bel Tree which are an integral part of Hindu Puja rituals and used primarily to offer to Lord Shiva and also other deities. The Bilva Tree (Bel Tree) is considered sacred because, as per the Skanda Purana, once a drop of sweat of Goddess Parvati, consort of Lord Shiva, fell on Mandrachal Mountain from which the Bel Tree took birth. Therefore, the energy of Goddess Parvati is said to reside in the various parts of the Bel Tree, and this is the main reason why Lord Shiva is extremely fond of the Bel Patra, Bel fruit and all other parts of the tree. It is also believed to be produced from the heart of Goddess Laxmi, which makes the Bel Patra adorable to Mahadev.

Bel Patra is often strung into Malas to be offered to Lord Shiva, especially on Maha Shivratri, and also on Sharav Somvar and other especially important days of Lord Shiva. Bel Patra is also offered to Goddess Parvati and all Her forms. As mentioned in the Skanda Purana, She resides as Parvati in the Bel Patra, which is one more reason why Lord Shiva is pleased when offered the leaves. The ancient texts explain that the trifoliate Bel Patra which is offered to Lord Shiva represents the Divine Trinity of Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwar (Shiva). Its significance is also high as it is said to represent the three eyes of Lord Shiva.

The Bel Leaves or Bilva Patra have medicinal value, like the Bel Fruit, roots also have medicinal value and have been used since ancient times in Ayurvedic medicines to cure various diseases and ailments. The significance of Bel Patra or Bilva Patra is perhaps difficult to explain in words, however it signifies Lord Shiva.
