Maha Shivratri 2020: Shubh Muhurat, Date, timings and significance

Maha Shivratri or Night of Mahadev is an annual festival that is celebrated across India in honour of Lord Shiva. It is one of the major festivals and it marks the remembrance of ‘overcoming darkness and ignorance’ in our lives. The devotees observe fast on this day and chant prayers in honour of Lord Shiva.

Some people even take a pilgrimage to Jyotir lingams. The festival is also known by other names such as ‘Har-ratri’, ‘Haerath’ in Jammu and Kashmir.

People believe during this time that worshipping Lord Shiva on this day will free them from all their sins and will help them get Nirvana or Moksha (salvation). It is also believed that Lord Shiva gulped the Halahala produced during Samudra Manthan and beheld it in his neck which bruised and turned blue, after which he was also named as Neel Kanth.

Shivratri is considered sacred for praying to Lord Shiva. It falls every month on its 13th night or 14th day, but the most important Shivratri falls twice in a year—one in the month of Phalgun and the other during the month of Shravan.

It is believed that on this particular day, ‘adiyogi’ or the first guru awakened his consciousness at the material level of existence. According to legends, no objective experience takes place on the stage of consciousness and the mind becomes transcended.

The meditator transcends time, space and causation. It is regarded as the brightest night of the soul when the yogi attains the state of Shoonya or Nirvana, the stage succeeding samadhi or illumination.
