Maha Shivaratri is the Great night of Shiva. Shivaratri happens 12-13 times a year. It is the night before the new moon. Due to certain astrological influences, there is said to be an upsurge in the kind of energies in the human system that leads to expanded awareness and the ability to shed off past conditioning.
Tomorrow night I'll be leading Maha Shivaratri meditation at Vikasa Yoga Retreat, on an auspicious night which is said to have astrological influence on the human energy system to be the optimum for breaking old conditioned beliefs and realizing higher self awareness.
Join me at Vikasa Yoga White Hall 10pm - 6am March 7th, 2016!
Typically common preparations for Maha Shivaratri will be reducing food tomorrow on the 7th, having a little meal in the morning and then only fruit the rest of the day, or complete fasting until the morning of the 8th. During the night one should hold strong to remain upright, either sitting or standing, or walking around the hall. One can meditate on silence, stillness, or focus on chanting Aum namaha Shivaya. If you have a mala bring it, it will help to keep awake! Also bring a meditation showl to keep cozy or protect from mosquitos! From 10:00 - 12:00 we will have music and a small puja at midnight.
