Mahashivaratri

Date and time
Shivaratri abhishek

Very soon, the auspicious and divinely feted occasion of Maha Shivratri will be celebrated around the world. Prayers go to Swayambhu Shiva, and with great devotion, joy and bhakti, we worship the One who has manifested himself and created the entire universe of all visible and invisible elements. Shivaratri is the very auspicious Night – when Shiva, once again manifests himself and blesses His devotes with Darshan and offers countless blessings.

This Shivratri, in 2023, begins in the evening of the 18th February, after prayer, and continues until the early morning on the 19th.  Bhaktas fast all day on the 18th, taking only water or juice and some fruit. In the evening they gather in their Ashrams or temples and perform the sacred worship of Shiva Lingam, bringing with them fruits and flowers as an auspicious offering to place before the Shiva temple.

The Shiva Lingam represents the entire universe and it’s Shiva who keeps the balance and peace between the Devik and Asuri Shakti’s. The positive and negative energies.
Divine Shakti represents the creation and protection in the entire universe. It is this divine balance of Shiva Shakti that dwells in each and every creature, in the vegetation, water, soil, and rocks.

(after the message of Vishwaguru Mahamandaleshwar Paramhans Sri Swami Maheshwaranand Ji)
