Maha Shivratri 2023

Phalguna Krishna Chaturdashi is known as Maha Sivratri and every month it is celebrated as Masa Shivratri. It is believed that Shivling was evaluated at midnight at 12 A.M. and called Lingodhbhava Muhurt. It is also Harihar bhet which means Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu meet together with utmost love and respect. Bilva leaf is offered to Vishnu and Tulsi is offered to Lord Shiva at midnight. There are many puranic stories regarding Shivratri but important rituals are early bath, fasting, Lingabhishekam, Pooja, Sadhana, offering Rudraksh, Bilva leaves, white flowers, and Jaagran with Sankeertana.
