Maha Shivratri

Feb 13th 2020 at 1:04 AM

Most Hindus believe that Lord Shiva was married to the goddess Parvati that day. According to a story, the great sage once cursed Lord Indra and other gods. Then Lord Vishnu suggested that they choose Samudra Manthan or confuse the oceans. It is the most powerful mantra dedicated to Lord Mrityunjaya, a form of Shiva that embodies fear and whose worship helps one to overcome the most feared fear in the world.

Shri Rudram Chamakam Recitation: It is a powerful Vedic mantra dedicated to Lord Rudra, mentioned in the fifth and seventh in Taittiriya Samhita of Krishna Yajurveda.It is sung to evoke a benevolent attribute of Shiva to fulfill wishes.In addition to these activities, stories of Shiva stories, bhajans and aartis are performed and dances performed to glorify Lord Shiva and celebrate the joyful union of Shiva and Parvati.

Maha shivaratri is observed at night, usually in illuminated temples or in specially prepared Prabha (above). Maha Shivaratri is celebrated in Tamil Nadu with great pomp and fanfare in the Annamalai temple in the Tiruvannamalai district. The most important temples of Jyotirlinga Shiva in India, such as in Varanasi and Somanatha, are particularly heavily frequented on Maha Shivaratri.
