Mahashivratri 2022 Celebration in Patiala
Maha Shivratri, which essentially translates to ‘the great night of Shiva’, is considered one of the most auspicious festivals of the country. It is celebrated annually with much fervour and excitement across India. The chants of ‘Har Har Mahadev’ is heard throughout the nation on this day. This year, the Mahashivratri is being celebrated on March 1
It’s believed that while there is a Shivratri every lunisolar month of the Hindu calendar, the Maha Shivratri, happens only once every year, in February/March, when winter comes to an end and spring and summer begin.
Out of the 12 Shivratris observed in any given year, Maha Shivratri is considered especially auspicious, as it is supposed to be the night of convergence of Shiva and Shakti, which in essence means the male and feminine energies that keep the world in balance. Shiva and Shakti are revered as the embodiment of love, power, and oneness. One of them claims that Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati tied the knot on this day. Purusha (mindfulness) is embodied by Lord Shiva, whilst Prakriti (nature) is embodied by Maa
There are different legends throughout history that describe the significance of Maha Shivratri.
