This matra is what I’m lis­ten­ing and hum­ming at times when I am real­ly scared of or real­ly want­ed some­thing to pray from God since child­hood!!

My par­ents are very devot­ed to Lord Shiva …we pray to every God but if I talk about me I always love Lord shiva a lot , bhole bhan­dari he is …

As mon­th of Phal­gu­na comes on the 14th night of the new moon dur­ing the dark half brings Maha Shiv­ra­tri, the night of the wor­ship Lord Shiva

Well is this the only rea­son why we cel­e­brate MahaShiv­rati …No , there are sto­ries behind …

3 sto­ries which I heard since child­hood

  1. Lord Shiva was mar­ried to Devi Par­vati on Shiv­rati.

2. It is also believed that on Shiv­ra­tri, Lord Shiva became ‘Neelka­n­tham’ or the blue-throat­ed by swal­low­ing the dead­ly poi­son that came up dur­ing the churn­ing of “Kshir Sagar” . The poi­son was so dead­ly that even a drop in His stom­ach, which rep­re­sents the uni­verse, would have anni­hi­lat­ed the entire world. Hence, He held it in His neck, which turned blue due to the effect of poi­son. Shiv­ra­tri is there­fore also a day of thanks­giv­ing to the Lord for pro­tect­ing us from anni­hi­la­tion.

3. The absolute form­less God, Sadashiv appeared in the form of “Lin­godb­hav Moor­ti” exact­ly at mid­night on Maha Shiv­ra­tri. That is why all Shiva devo­tees keep vig­il dur­ing the night of Shiv­ra­tri and do “Shiv­lingam abhishekham” at mid­night.
