Mahashivaratri is a Hindu festival celebrated annually in honor of Lord Shiva. This is the most potent night of the year for clearing deep-seated karma that is holding you back. Shiva can bestow the boon of complete control over your life.
Lord Shiva is a representation of the primordial energy that gave rise to everything and into which it will all eventually dissolve. If there is a particular occasion when we can atone for even our bad karmas and receive extraordinary blessings for wealth, health, and power, it can only be “Shivaratri” or the “Night of Shiva.”
It is a special night when Goddess Parvati offers Lord Shiva special prayers in an effort to benefit humanity. Thus, by praying during Shivaratri, you can participate in the special Goddess prayer and lessen your karma.
During Maha Shivaratri each year, Lord Shiva takes on the form of the Shiva Lingam, his revered emblem, and manifests himself everywhere. The Shiva Lingam represents the universe’s creative power and suggests that God is an elusive entity.
What Should You Do on Shivaratri Night?
The blessed day of Shivaratri is when every soul can enter the state of Nirvana, the consciousness of the beginningless. To obtain grace and assistance, one must maintain vigil throughout the night.
During Maha Shivaratri, prayers and poojas are said to be amplified ten million times. This particular evening is the perfect opportunity for you to purify your thoughts and start the empowerment of your goals.
