The Great Night of Shiva, Mahashivratri, is a night of spiritual significance. Mahashivratri is of great significance for all those who aspire for the Ultimate. May this night become an exuberant awakening for you.
The fourteenth day of every lunar month, which is the day before the new moon, is known as Shivratri. Of all the twelve Shivratris that take place every year, Mahashivratri in February-March has the most spiritual importance. On this night, the northern hemisphere of the world aligns in such a way that a person experiences a natural increase in energy. It is for this reason that we have instituted this overnight festival to benefit from nature's power and propel oneself to spiritual heights. To make sure this surge of energy comes forth, one must remain upright with open eyes throughout the night.
After being Sati in her previous life, Parvati was determined to marry Shiva. Having committed herself to penance similar to his, she eventually gained his attraction through her austerity and devotion, and he married her. Skanda, who defeated Taraka, was born to the two as promised by Brahma.
Together, Parvati and Shiva, manifestations of the feminine and masculine aspects of the Divine, represent the dynamic union that sparks creation. Parvati represents Shakti (the creative and energetic potency).
The masculine and feminine energies exist in the Divine consciousness, just as they exist in every individual. Maha Shivaratri is an occasion to recognize both energies' importance in our lives.
Mahashivratri is very significant for people on the spiritual path. Mahashivratri is also very significant for people in family situations, as well as for ambitious people in the world. People in family situations observe Mahashivratri as Shiva's wedding anniversary. On that day, Shiva conquered all his enemies, according to those with worldly ambitions.
For the ascetics, however, it was the day he became one with Mount Kailash. Shiva became still like a mountain. Shiva is not worshipped by the yogic tradition as a god, but instead as the Adi Guru, the Guru from whom the science of Yoga originated. He became still after many millennia in meditation. On the night of Mahashivratri, ascetics call it the night of stillness because all movement in him ceased and he became utterly still.
It is not the legends that make this day and night so important to yogis. it is the possibilities that it presents to spiritual seekers that make it so important. As modern science has progressed through many phases, they are now attempting to prove to you that everything we know as life, everything we know as matter, everything we know as the cosmos, and all of our galaxies, is just an energy that manifests itself in millions of different ways.
In every yogi, this scientific fact is an experiential reality. A yogi is aware of the oneness of existence. All longings to know the unbounded, all longings to know the oneness in existence are yoga. There is an opportunity to experience this on Mahashivratri night.
Shivratri occurs on the darkest day of each month, and the annual celebration of Mahashivratri is a celebration of darkness. However, Shiva translates to that which is not - referencing the vast emptiness that stands as the biggest presence in existence. When considering one’s surroundings at a small level, you will observe creation, however, when looking for bigger things, it is this emptiness that dominates.
A few spots which we call galaxies are generally much noticed, but the vast emptiness that holds them does not come to everybody's attention. Shiva refers to this vastness, this unbounded emptiness, which has been scientifically proven to be the beginning and the end of everything. In this context, Shiva is referred to as the Great Lord, or Mahadeva, because he represents the vast emptiness or nothingness.
Every religion and every culture on this planet has always spoken about the omnipresent, all-pervading nature of the divine. If we look at it, only darkness, nothingness, or emptiness can truly be all-pervading, all-pervasive.
The divine is generally seen as light when people seek well-being. When people no longer seek well-being, when they are looking beyond their life in terms of dissolving, if the object of their worship and their sadhana is dissolution, then we always refer to the divine as darkness.
As part of Mahashivratri, we have the opportunity to experience the vast emptiness that lies within us all, the source of all life. On the other hand, Shiva is known as the destroyer. He is known as the most compassionate. The yogic lore is rife with stories about Shiva's compassion. He is also known to be the greatest giver. Throughout his compassion, he has shown incredible ways to express himself. Because of this, Mahashivratri is also a special night to receive. We wish that you may experience at least a moment of the vastness of this emptiness that we call Shiva during this night. This night should not just be a night of wakefulness, it should be a night of awakening.
It is described in the Hindu scripture Bhagavad Purana that once, when the devas (gods) and asuras (enemies of the gods) were often at odds, Vishnu (the creator of the universe) told them they could produce amrita — a nectar of immortality — if they worked together temporarily and churned the ocean of milk.
They struck a truce and began churning the ocean, but before the amrita arrived, a poison was created, spreading aggressively in all directions. Unable to control the poison, the devas asked Shiva for assistance. Shiva, a powerful and compassionate being, went to the ocean, poured the entire quantity of poison into his mouth, and stored it in his throat, eliminating all danger and saving everyone.
Since the poison turned Shiva's throat blue, he has been known as Nilakantha, which means "blue throat."
