Jai Gurudev!
Coming up shortly is a very special time of the year – Maha Shivaratri (7th - 8th March). Shivaratri commemorates Mahadev for the great act of protection that he granted to the asuras and devas by drinking the poison, Halahala. This is the dreadful poison which emerged from the Churning of the Milky Ocean. So what is so special about prayer during the night of Maha Shivaratri? Well to quote Guruji directly, "This night is a very auspicious night. And what you receive this night, (on) all the other nights you won’t receive that, the Grace of the Lord, the Grace of Lord Shiva. The Grace of God, you receive it by chanting the Divine Name, by chanting Om Namah Shivaya."
In addition to this auspicious prayer, our Shiva Lingam in SPN (called Mrityum Bhageshwar - which means the Lord who is above Death) has been blessed by Mahavatar Babaji. This Lingam has the same energy that the 12 Jyotirlingams in India have, and Babaji has also blessed the Shiva lingam with immense healing power. By conducting the prayers to the lingam, Lord Shiva will help one to remove the fear of death (often the greatest fear on one’s spiritual path) and grant liberation.
See you in SPN!
Hara Hara Mahadev!
