Essence of Mahashiv-Ratri:

Mahashivaratri (the great night of Shiva) falls on the fourteenth day of the dark fortnight of -Magha-Phalguna (February- March), and is dedicated to the worship of Lord Shiva. On this day devotees sing bhajans in honor of Shiva, recite Sanskrit shlokas (verses) from scriptures, offer prayers in the morning and evening, observing fasting throughout the day. 

Offering Bilva leaves to Shiva on Shivaratri is considered very auspicious by his devotees.


Maha-Shiv Ratri Purpose is to achieve eternal peace and happiness by worshipping Shiva at night, by meditating on one's own self during the night when the individual is free from the distractions of the physical world. When the individual attains self-knowledge, he or she can live in the world without being affected by anger, greed, and selfishness, the three enemies of one's soul. Shiva-ratri symbolizes the worship of the atman within. 


According to vedic astrological system, Mahashivaratri is considered as one such day when spritual energy in nature is too high to connect with the divine shiva to achieve spritual growth for the higher transformation. It is conducive to spiritual growth and meditation.

Meditation helps to reach at a point when we can experience space of nothingness and love. This experience takes us to the level of higher consciousness, that stage only a siddh yogi achieve via going into depeest state of meditation, that is called state of the Shiva- The Adhi-Yogi (The One).Shivratri is that night which is meant for spiritual seekers for connecting with the divine Nature.

Mahashivratri is the day when the Shiva Tattva (Guru Tattva- Akash - Eternal Knowledge - Braham) is believed to come in contact with the divine earth (Prakarti- Shakti -  Prithvi Tattva - Material). It is believed that during divine night of Maha-Shivratri our higher consciousness, aura, increases ten inches above the material ground or expands in a wide spritual plane. Our Chakaras get align with the nature energy and a sadhak can reaches to the height of Higher chakra - the chakra of One - OM. 


On this day, consciousness descends and touches the Prithvi Tattva.

That is why Mahashivratri is celebrated across the universe – it is the day of  wedding of  Shiva and Shakti (the Twin Particle of Prithvi and Aakash Tattva) the material world (Earth) with the spiritual world ( Brahmand).
