Mahashivaratri: the great night of Shiva ' E-mail
The Mahashivratri falls annually in the month Phalgun (February / March) of the Hindu Calendar. This year is the celebration of Mahashivaratri on February 16. There are different stories told to the origin of the party Shivaratri (the night of Shiva) to declare. One is that this is the day when Shiva in his cosmic ecstasy dance (Tandava) danced with all the gods and ways of this cosmic event participated.

When he took the deadly poison from the ocean of milk rose, in answer to the prayers of the worlds that it threatened to be destroyed, even the heat was unbearable for him. Therefore, the Ganges continued his samengeklitte its cast. Shiva was only partially cooled and so cool Monday put on his head, which gave him some relief. When was the Ganges on his hair put confused. That was him great support. Below Shiva danced with all the gods Tandavadans. This was not on a certain day and therefore can not say that the anniversary is Shivaratri.

We have not only Mahashivaratri. Each month we have a Shivaratri, dedicated to the worship of Shiva. What is the importance of the night during the celebration of (Maha) Shivaratri? Every night there is one less part of the moon, until the night of the New Moon, when the moon is destroyed. Then there will be a part of every night to the moon on the night of the Full Moon again complete. The decrease of the moon is a symbol of the decline of the thinking mind. The mind must be controlled, in effect reduced and ultimately destroyed. Otherwise control the mind (a bundle of thoughts) man and he remains restless.

Each day during the dark half of the month, the moon and the symbolic human mind to. There's a part from. The power of the mind decreases. On the fourteenth night, there is still a tiny bit about. If it is this day spiritual effort, even that little bit away and we dominated the mind. The fourteenth night of the dark half of the moon is therefore called Shivaratri, because the night into repeating the holy name and meditating on Shiva, without any thought of food or sleep. Then success is assured. Once a year in the night of Mahashivaratri a special use of spiritual activities recommended so that all the earthly things as temporary and deceptive (Maya), it can be removed so people can reach God. Of attachment, detachment touch. From shavam (to) is one Shivam (God).

This is the purpose of Shivaratri and it is foolish and even harmful delusion to think that 'stay awake' the essential is what the celebration is about. Men sleep that night trying to avoid by playing cards or non-stop in the cinema to sit. That's not the spiritual effort on Shivaratri should be made stronger.
