Maha Shivaratri is a Hindu festival celebrated annually in reverence of the God Shiva. It is the day Shiva was married to the Goddess Parvati.
The festival is principally celebrated by offerings of Bael leaves to Shiva, all-day fasting and an all-night-vigil (jagaran).
As the Mahashivratri festival is approaching, it is the right time to observe a one-day fast – the Shivratri fast or Shivratri vrat seeking the blessings of Lord Shiva. All through India, many devotees observe the Shivratri fast. They gather in Shiva temples around the Shivalinga with their offerings. They pray, chant, meditate and fast all day and night. The fast or vrat is at the heart of the celebration and many follow it earnestly to increase the solemnity of their vows and intentions.
This vrat is different from those followed during other Hindu festivals, where devotees eat food after performing the puja of the deity. On this great night of Lord Shiva, the vrat continues through the day, and night.
कुलीनमकुलीनं वा वीरं पुरुषमानिनम् |
चारित्रमेव व्याख्याति शुचिं वा यदि वाऽशुचिम्।। – Valmiki Ramayana (2.109.4)
kulīnamakulīnaṃ vā vīraṃ puruṣamāninam।
cāritramēva vyākhyāti śuciṃ vā yadi vā’śucim।।
Meaning : It is only the character that tells whether a man is highborn or not, brave or only
proud of his manliness, honest or dishonest.
भावार्थ : चरित्र ही अकुलीन को कुलीन, भीरू(कायर) को वीर , और अपावन को पावन सिद्ध करता है।
Jāgaraṇa (जागरण) awakening
🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉
Fasting detoxifies the body and purifies the mind. Your body feels lighter and your mind feels more relaxed as the restlessness reduces. At the same time, the mind becomes more alert. When that happens, it is more prepared for prayer, and meditation, which is the central aspect of Mahashivratri celebration.
When both your mind and body are detoxified, there is greater strength in your intentions and prayers. When you combine the Shivratri fast with meditation, you increase the possibility of your desires getting manifested.
