Shiva is the principle from where everything in the universe has come, in which everything is sustained and into which everything dissolves. Mahashivratri – the night of Shiva - is like a new year for the spiritual seeker. It is considered an auspicious day for spiritual growth and material attainment. On Mahashivratri the constellation of stars are configured such that they have a profound effect on meditation, purifying the self and the environment.

During the evening celebrations, various offerings (puja) of water, milk, honey, curd, flowers etc will be made on the Shiva lingam, the symbol of cosmic energy. When the heart is filled with divine love and mind and body are resting in Shiva, then sincere prayers and wishes are fulfilled effortlessly.

“Let there be timely rain, let there be good harvest. Let there be health, wealth, wisdom and liberation.“ With these prayers, offerings are made for the well-being of humanity.

Tuesday evening will begin with the weekly Long Kriya session (open to all that have attended the Happiness Program.) Thereafter, the Mahashivratri celebrations will begin (all welcome) and will continue through the night till 6.00am on Wednesday morning. Feel free to join in at any time - not compulsory to stay for the entire duration!
