Lord Shiva is one of the trinity, Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh (Shiva). Where Brahma is creator, Vishnu is protector and Shiva is destroyer. Destroyer means one who terminates life and leads towards salvation.
Shiva is also considered as most generous GOD and most of the times called as ‘Bhola Sambhu’ by devotees.
Apart from salvation, he even glorifies his devotees by giving them boon in the form of a enormous name, fame and money. Worship offered to lord Shiva throughout shravan month is also called as Shivopasana.
Upasana is basically performed during Sharavan month of Hindu calendar. Even Maagh month is consider as month of Shiva, so shivopasana is also carried out in Maagh. The most auspicious day for worship of Shiva is considered as Maha Shivratri which comes in the month of Sharavan. In Hindus any puja or upasana is performed by offering dhup(incense), deep(lamp of ghee), naivadh(prasadam may be a piece of jiggery).
First light a lamp, then chant the Shivopasana hymn while offering water on the Lord Shiva Linga that will be Abhisekam to Lord Shiva.
Afterwards you can offer fruits, dry, fruits, jaggery etc. and then give aarati that will complete your puja.You should worship continuously for 40 days leading to upasana of Lord Shiva.
