    Why do we celebrate Mahashivratri?

    A story of Lord Shiva’s marriage

    According to this legend, once Shivji and Satiji were going, they saw Lord Rama and Lord Lakshmana on the way who were looking for Goddess Sita. Shivji bow down to Lord Rama but Sati got confused. How can it happen a formless God becomes real and even if he becomes real, he is looking for his wife, he is omniscient, and he should know where is his wife? Shivji tries to make Satiji understand but she does not agree then Shivji says to go and take their test. Satijidisguise herself as Sitajiand sits down there but Lord Rama recognized her and bows his head down to her. But Satiji told Shivji that she did not take any test of Lord Rama but Shivji is intermediate he knew she has taken the form of her mother like Goddess Sita due to which Shivji’s internal bond with Sati broke. Then Satiji attended a Spiritual Yagya conducted by his father Daksha, despite being not invited and even Shivji’s request not to attend it. No one was happy to see her there except her mother, her father humiliated her, and Lord Shiva too. Out of anger, she burnt herself. After this, Lord Shiva left the world and went into deep meditation. Then, Parvatiji was born, she with her tapasya of near about 5000 years pleased Lord Shiva and they both got married. The day they both got married is celebrated as ‘Mahashivratri’.

    A story of Mahashivratri Fast

    According to the story mentioned in Shivpuran. Once upon a time, there lived a bhil in the forest named Krudru. He had a large family. Along with being strong and cruel, he also used to do cruel deeds. He uses to go to the forest every day and kill deer and other animals and while staying there used to commit various kinds of thefts. He had never done any good deed since childhood. One day, an auspicious day of Shivaratri occurred. But that evil soul lived in a dense forest and was completely unaware of the Shivratri’s fast. On the same day, his parents and wife distraught with hunger started demanding food from him. Hearing their plea, bail immediately went towards the forest and started roaming in the forest for hunting. But he did not find any food that day which made him upset. After that, a hunter reached a reservoir. He started thinking that some creature would definitely come here for water. Thinking like this, he climbed a bel tree and sat down taking the same water with him. After a long time, a thirsty deer came to drink water in a reservoir, he immediately took the bow to kill her. While doing this, a little water and bel patra fell down from his hand. There was a Shivling under the tree about which the hunter did not know. Many sins committed by that hunter were destroyed by that unknown worship of Lord Shiva. The deer requested the hunter not to kill her now, once she settled her kids with her sister then she will come back then he can kill her. This incident happened three times with three different deer and by mistake, he did a pooja of Shivling also three times. All three deer decided together let’s fulfill our promise and go back. They came to the hunter then the hunter’s heart and mind completely changed by seeing the deer’s devotion and decided not to kill them, seeing this Lord Shiva came in front of him and blessed him.

    A story of AmritManthan

    According to Bhagwat Puran, many precious things emerged in the churning of the ocean between the deities and the asuras. Many good things emerged out of it which was divided among deities and asuras. But when poison came out of it then no one was ready to take it. During this time the poison started spreading in the seas. Many animals and humans started dying after drinking it. Life on earth became dangerous. The deities started getting scared that it might not affect heaven, then all the deities and sages went to Mahadev. Everyone requested Shivjito’s protection. Shivji is merciful, he immediately agreed and drank the poison and held it in his throat with his yogic power. Since then Lord Shiva was named Neelkanth. Since then this day is known as Mahashivaratri.

    A deep connection with our Higher Self on Mahashivratri

    A divine day, Mahashivratri, is one of the most glorious days, especially for the worship of Lord Shiva. Worship means more recognition and more understanding, even acknowledging the fact of something which is unknowable. Lord Shiva is not the person but the vastness, the state, or everything. So, what is Shivratri? That is the time when the configuration of the planet gives us the time to connect to something which cannot be defined through any words. So, Shivratri is the day when the ‘Prakriti’ (nature) connects to ‘Purusha’(the supreme soul). The supreme source is the source of nature and nature is dependent on the supreme soul but the supreme soul has no dependency. This day we try to get connected with the higher self within ourselves to experience or realize Shiva. All we have to do on Shivratri is to chant within ‘Om NamahShivaya’ to balance the Shiva and Shakti. Concentrate on your center, focus there and bring the energy there. In summary, this is done to bring you to connect you with your higher self. A deep connection with the soul helps to connect with Shiva which is the vastness.
