Mahashivratri is one of the most significant Hindu festivals annually observed in honor of Lord Shiva. The festival marks the union of Lord Shiva and Goddess Shakti.
On this day, devotees worship Lord Shiva, and they maintain a strict fast and do various religious activities to please Lord Shiva and do Parana on the next day, Chaturdashi.
According to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Mahashivratri is the day of Lord Shiva. Wherever there is beauty, truth, and benevolence, there is Shiva. And, there is no place where the Shiva principle is absent. But, Shiva is not a person. It is that principle that is the summum bonum of the whole creation and pervades the entire universe. This principle, called the Shiva Tattva, is the quintessence of life and is present deep within every living being.
On Mahashivratri, we celebrate the Shiva Tattva by going deep within us, meditating, and rejoicing in the Shiva energy. More than ever before, Mahashivratri 2021 will be a day and night that devotees eagerly wait for, as the spirit flourishes in the unique energy present at this particular time. There are certain days and time frames in a year when everyone's mental health and spiritual faculties are enhanced, and Mahashivratri is one such precious day.
