Maha Shivaratri - The 'Great Night of Lord Shiva'
Lord Shiva is the representation of primordial energy from which everything was born and to which everything in the universe will disintegrate into. This is the night where Lord Shiva is said to have revealed the dance (Tandava) of primeval conception, preservation and destruction. Maha Shivaratri occurs once in a year and it is the special night for purifying your thoughts and empowering your goals.
Prayers offered during Maha Shivaratri are promised to be amplified 10 million times.
Celebration of Maha Shivaratri
Chant this perfect Mantra for accelerated lifetime materializations: "Om Namah Shivaya".
Clean your home and purifyyour mind.
Enlighten your thoughts with the remembrance of the Divine, and Sing praises to the Divine with a heart full of love.
Enjoy yourself! God is not a killjoy. The more joyous you are, the closer you get towards the eternal spring of joy and bliss!
Light a candle or a ghee lamp and some incense. A sweet smell is sure to be pleasing and purify any negative energies in the space.
Forget life's problems, the pains of your past, and worries about your future. Celebrate everything that is good in your life right now!
As you keep vigil this night, you become aware of your life and karma. It is a great opportunity to connect with the divine formless form (Linga) of Lord Shiva who symbolizes 'all-auspiciousness', and to invite these energies in your life. In essence, Maha Shivaratri signifies the transition from the darkness of gloom and ignorance to the dawn of divine joy and knowledge.
