Maha Shivratri 2021
Maha Shivratri falls on the 13th (or 14th) day of every lunar month. Shivratri means ‘The Night of Shiva’ and is observed in honour to Lord Shiva (The substratum of the existence). Shivratri is taking refuge in the divine consciousness, which brings peace and solace to all layers of consciousness. So resting in the Shiva Tattva is Shivaratri.
“Every Mahashivratri is meant to wake up every particle of your body. The festival is a wake-up call to move away from conflicts and move towards truth, beauty, peace, and benevolence - the ethereal qualities of Shiva.”
- Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
It is believed that Mahashivratri is a time of deep rest for the body, mind, and ego; a deep rest that awakens a devotee to the highest knowledge of the Shiva Tattva. It is considered as an auspicious day for spiritual growth and material attainment.
