Bhasmarti

Bhasmarti is a daily ritual offered to Sri Mahakaleshwar, the main deity of the Mahakaleshwar temple in Ujjain, at 4 AM. This two-hour-long ritual involves the offering of Bhasma, which means "ash," to the deity. The ash used in the Bhasma Aarti is derived from burning dried cow dung. The ritual is marked by the chanting of mantras and the resonant sounds and vibrations, making it a powerful and transformative experience that many describe as a once-in-a-lifetime event. Among the twelve Jyotirlingas, Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga is unique as it is the only one where the Bhasmarti is performed.

During the Bhasma Aarti, entry into the Garbhagriha (the innermost sanctum) is prohibited. Devotees are allowed to participate from the Nandi Mandapam, Ganesh Mandapam, and Kartikeya Mandapam. The Nandi Hall, located just outside the Sanctum Sanctorum, can accommodate around 100 people, while an additional 500 devotees can be seated near the barricades behind the Nandi Hall. The Mahakaleshwar temple stands out as the only Jyotirlinga temple where Aartis are performed five times a day, further emphasizing its unique spiritual significance.
