The Night of Transformation
Maha Shivaratri 2015, Feb 17th (IST)

Devotees of Shiva throughout the world, wait for this Great Night of Shiva or Maha Shivaratri to endear him with love and devotion. Devotees prefer to stay awake throughout the night and offer prayer every 3 hours. This year Maha Shivaratri occurs on February 17, 2015 (IST).

Goddess Parvati once asked Shiva which rituals pleased him the most, Shiva replied that rituals performed on the 14th Waning Moon during the month of Phalgun (Feb/Mar) were his favorite. This is now popularly known as Maha Shivaratri. While 14th Waning Moon day every month is observed as Shivaratri, Maha Shivaratri has special significance, and it happens only once a year. Staying aware and vigil for worship on the night of Maha Shivaratri has the potential of awakening the highest consciousness in a person.

Astrological Significance of Maha Shivaratri 2015

This year Maha Shivaratri is on February 17th, 2015 (IST). Lord Shiva is the representation of primordial energy of the Universe, our consciousness, the Prana. Everything in Nature born out of this Universal energy has to return to the Universe by dissipating into it. Thus, Shiva lives within every living being and therefore He also holds our karma, the repercussions of our actions and thoughts.

Every year during Maha Shivaratri, Lord Shiva incarnates on the Earth in the form of Shiva Lingam, his sacred symbol. Shiva Lingam is symbolic of the creative power of the universe that denotes presence of God in an undefined form. It is the special time when people seek to improve or purify their consciousness – do remedies for your karma and gain extraordinary abilities to acquire wealth, health and power by praying to Shiva in the 'Night of Shiva'.

Star of the day will be Shravana because the Moon will be in this constellation in the sign of Capricorn receiving aspect of an exalted Jupiter in Cancer. This aspect of Jupiter to the Moon is very special because Jupiter enjoys this exaltation once in 12 years. This makes the energy of the day very auspicious and positive. It will also make all the rituals done on this day very fulfilling.

The Moon on this day also will be aspected by Saturn. This makes the day more powerful for clearing Karma by worshiping Lord Shiva. Again, the Moon will be in trine to Rahu. Hence, temple rituals at 4 power vortexes, where Rahu is said to have done pooja to Lord Shiva in the 4 kalas of Maha Shivaratri, will be a special feature this year.

Astrologically, this Maha Shivaratri is special because it gains power from 3 planets: Jupiter, Rahu and Saturn.


What To Do On Shivaratri Night?

Shiva
Pooja

One of the most holy nights in Vedic traditions is Maha Shivaratri, the Great Night of Shiva. Shivaratri is the auspicious time for every soul to get into elemental consciousness of the Universe, and the unmanifested forces of Nature for transformation. Shiva’s grace is received by keeping vigil and praying to him during the night.

Poojas and prayers offered during Maha Shivaratri are promised to be amplified 10 million times. If there is a time that you can purify your thoughts and activate the empowerment of your goals, it is this special night.

What You Can Do at Home on Maha Shivaratri:

  • Clean your home and clear your mind
  • Fill your mind with thoughts of Shiva
  • Bathe yourself and wear clean comfortable clothes.
  • Fast and feel the bliss.
  • Enjoy yourself! The more joyous we are, the closer we are to the Source of joy and bliss.
  • Chant Shiva's perfect mantra, Om Namah Shivaya.
  • Sing Shiva's praise with a full heart
  • Meditate on Shiva and only Shiva. If your mind wanders, bring it back to Shiva's feet
  • Forget life's problems, pains of the past, and worries about the future.
  • See God in everyone and in everything

Conversion of Negative Karma into Powerful Positive Energy

The conversion of negative Karma into powerful positive energy can be done by devoting yourself to the feet of Lord Shiva, the remover of sins and the Lord of mercy and compassion. The night is symbolic of a condition prior to creation and refers to the chaos that existed before light. But this chaotic darkness is not a negative condition. It is the pure consciousness without the pollution of wisdom and knowledge.

In the Buddha's terminology, it is referred to as the emptiness of heaven. Lord Shiva governs the universe with the cycle of creation, sustenance, dissolution, concealment and bestowment of grace. He protects devotees from evil forces such as lust, greed and anger. He grants boons, bestows grace and awakens wisdom in His devotees.

Lord Shiva incarnates in the form of the Shiva Lingam during this great night every year. Shiva Lingam is the holy symbol of Lord Shiva that is considered sacred by the devotees of Lord Shiva. The power of Lingam is the most glorious occurrence created by God in its vast array of creations. Shiva Lingam is symbolic of the creative power of the universe. It denotes the truth that God does not have any definite form.

It is a great opportunity to connect with the divine, formless form of Lord Shiva, the Lingam, who symbolizes "all-auspiciousness", and to invite these energies in your life. In essence, Maha Shivaratri signifies the transition from the darkness of gloom and ignorance to the dawn of divine joy and knowledge!
