In preparing to observe Maha Shivratri, we are joining millions all over the world.  Tradition says that a devotee who performs sincere worship of Lord Shiva on the auspicious day of Maha Shivratri is absolved of sins and attains ultimate freedom, mokṣa.

Maha Shivratri is held on the darkest night before the new moon on the fourteenth day of the 12th lunar month of the Hindu calendar.  In the yogic tradition, the form of Shiva is the Adiguru, the first Guru from whom all knowledge originated.  This night is devoted to prayer and honoring that great Consciousness, Shiva.  Sri Vasudeva reminds us that this is a phenomenal night for shifting one’s consciousness.  Here we have a chance of centering deep inside, merging in the Shiva consciousness, experiencing our self as a Being of Light.  Let us embrace the unique opportunity this night offers.

On this profound night, Sri Vasudeva leads the chanting of hymns, the reading of the Shiva scriptures and the chorus of devotees which will align us with Nataraja’s Tāṇḍava nṛtya, the Cosmic dance of impermanence, in its phases of creation, preservation and destruction, throughout which exists the Real, the Shiva presence, known as the Shiva Tattwa.  Honouring of the Shiva lingam celebrates that infinite power of the Universe which creates and re-absorbs everything that it has created; that which is without beginning and without end.  These observances, by prayer, devotion and Kirtan creates an intensely charged atmosphere that carries us through the night in an ecstatic wave of collective worship.
