Umesh Joshi, president of ‘Jyotish and Ritual Council’, an organization of priests and hosts of Pashupatinath temple, told that during the program of Independence Day special decoration of Ashtmukhi Shivling was done and worship was done. “We anointed the Shivling with the water of Durva (a special kind of grass used in worship) amidst recitation of Vedic mantras and prayed for the prosperity of the country,” Joshi said.
