#Mahashivratri festival will be celebrated on March 11 this year i.e. Thursday. #Mahashivratri festival is kept for Lord Shiva. Shivratri comes every month, but Mahashivratri, which falls in the Falgun month, has a special significance. On this occasion, devotees perform the coronation of Shiva temples. Many people fast on Shivratri and also make night awakening.
Sadguru points out that this night is of special importance and we can use it in a better way. Our Indian culture has a tradition of celebrating 365 days of the year. Say it that there is some excuse to celebrate all the days in a year. Sometimes we remember historical events and sometimes we remember victory. Welcome to special occasions such as harvesting, celebrating sowing. For every situation, we have all kinds of festivals, but Mahashivratri (Maha Shivratri 2021) is the most different and has a special significance.
Why mahashivratri is celebrated?
In Hinduism, Maha Shivratri is celebrated every month, but mahashivratri is of special importance in the month of Falgun. Lord Shiva and Parvati are believed to have been married on the same day.
On the night of Mahashivratri, lord Shiva appeared as a jyotirling with the same effect as millions of suns. Since then, the festival of Mahashivratri is celebrated every year on the Chaturdashi date of the Krishna side of the Falgun month.
It is also said that Maa Parvati is the reincarnation of Sati. Mother Parvati wanted to get Shivji as her husband. For this, he had made several efforts to make Shivji his own, Bholenath was not happy.
Mother Parvati then practiced hard at Gaurikund, 5 kms away from Triyugi Narayan, and charmed Shivji and on the same day Shivji and mother Parvati were married.
What is the significance of Mahashivratri
Mahashivratri is of great importance to seekers who follow the spiritual path. It is also very important for those who are in family conditions and rejoice in the ambitions of the world.
In family circumstances, people celebrate Mahashivratri as a celebration of Shiva’s marriage. People rejoice in worldly ambitions to celebrate Mahashivratri as the day of shiva conquering their enemies.
However, for seekers, this is the day they became integral with Mount Kailash. They were as stable and fixed as a mountain. In the compound tradition, Shiva is not worshipped like a deity.
He is considered to be adi guru, first guru, from whom knowledge stems. After several millennia of meditation, one day they became completely stable. The same day was mahashivratri.
