Maha Shivratri Story

There are many questions that exist in our mind and remain unanswerable most of the time. One such example can be our queries related to Shivratri celebrations and Mahashivratri Story. Many of us used to think or still think, as to why we celebrate this festival of Maha Shivratri. Well there are many legends that are associated with the celebrations of Maha Shivratri. The stories that are associated with the Shivratri celebrations are given below. 
History tells that once a hunter was wandering in a jungle on the banks of Kolidum River. The hunter was following a deer and suddenly heard roar of a tiger. The hunter got scared and climbed a tree, the tiger came chasing the hunter and stood at the foot of the tree. The hunter was very afraid and did not sleep because he thought he would fall. The whole night was spend on the tree by the hunter and suddenly he threw the leaves from the bael tree and at the foot of the tree was the Shiva lingam about which he did not know In the morning the tiger was not there and only Shiva lingam was there. The hunter was very happy and thankful to Lord Shiva and so people remember Lord Shiva the entire night of Maha shivratri.

Significance Of Maha Shivratri

Importance In Hinduism
According to the Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva declared that the rituals performed by his devotees on the 14th day of the dark fortnight in the month of Phalgun please him the most. Therefore, year by year, the day is observed as Mahashivratri, wherein devotees observe fast, sing songs and bhajans and offer prayers to the Almighty to seek his blessings. Pujas conducted in Lord Shiva temples during the day have significance too. This is because the rituals are conducted strictly in accordance with the method that is prescribed in Shiva Purana, a Hindu epic. According to the Purana, poojas are conducted once in every three hours, on Maha Shivaratri. 

Importance In Human Lives 
It is believed that the devotion of Lord Shiva on Mahashivaratri would freed the devotee from the past sins. Moreover, the devotee would reach the adobe of Lord Shiva and live there happily, because he/she is liberated from the cycle of birth and death, once he/she attains moksha or salvation. Therefore, all the devotees of Lord Shiva would flock the temples to offer their prayers. To serve the purpose, jujube fruits, stalks of Bilwa leaves, flowers and garlands are offered to the Shiva Linga by the devotees. If the devotee celebrates the festival at home, he/she would perform the Mahashivratri Puja by taking a holy bath (in warm water) early in the morning, wearing new clothes and then smearing bhasm (holy ash) on their forehead.

Importance For Women
Maha Shivaratri is especially important for women. Ladies, both married and unmarried, would perform Shiva Puja and observe fast with great devotion and sincerity. This is predominantly done to appease Lord Shiva along with his consort Goddess Parvati, who is often called Ma Gauri. It is believed that Ma Gauri bestows marital bliss on unmarried women and blesses the married women with healthy and blissful married life. Since Lord Shiva is regarded as the ideal husband by the Hindu women, the unmarried women would not miss to observe the stringent fast on Shivaratri.

Lord Shiva is also known as a ‘Destroyer’ or ‘Transformer’according to the Hindu religion and he is worshiped not only in India but also in other neighboring countries like Nepal and Sri Lanka.

Maha Shivratri Pooja

Pooja At Home

After waking up early in the morning on Mahashivaratri, the devotees of Lord Shiva would take a ceremonious bath, using warm water and seeds of black sesame. It is a popular belief that by bathing in warm water, with few seeds of black sesame, the body is purified. After wearing new clothes, the devotees would smear bhasma (holy ash) on their forehead. One may worship Lord Shiva at home by offering Bilwa leaves to the deity and by chanting mantra - 'Om Namah Shivaya'. Apart from Bilwa leaves, flowers and garlands can also be offered to the deity.

Pooja In Temples 

Special pujas are performed at Lord Shiva temples on the occasion of Maha Shivaratri. In many temples the pooja is conducted strictly according to the method prescribed in Shiva Purana, according to which, Shiva Linga should be given ceremonious bath and puja should conducted every three hours on Mahashivratri. Abhisheks are done using milk, yogurt, honey, ghee, sandalwood paste and rose water. Each item is poured over the Shiva Linga, to symbolize different meanings. Milk stands for piousness, while yogurt symbolizes prosperity. Abhishek is done with honey to acquire a sweet speech, while ghee is used to represent victory. It is said that sugar symbolizes happiness and water is the symbol of purity.

After the Abhisheks are performed, the Shiva Linga is adorned with a stalk of three Bilwa leaves, to mark the culmination of the previous ritual. Thereafter, kumkum (vermilion) is applied on the Shiva Linga. Apart from Bilwa leaves, one can see devotees offering beetle leaves to the deity. Jujube fruit is a favorite of the deity, and hence, it is also offered by the devotees. In the mean time, the devotees indulge in immense chanting of 'Om Namah Shivaya'. Sounds of bells add to the festive mood in the temples. The air is filled with the aroma of incense sticks and dhoop.

Pooja Items

The main items needed for Shiva Puja on Mahashivratri include vermilion, haldi (turmeric powder), Aguru (holy perfume), Vibhuti/Bhasm (sacred ash made using dried cow dung), Rudraaksha Mala (prayer beads made of the dark berries of Elaeocarpus ganitrus, to chant Om Namah Shivaya), Akshata (uncooked rice) and a stalk of Bilwa (Bael) leaves. Incense sticks, fresh flowers and camphor are other requisites for the pooja. Earthen lamp and lota (container filled with holy water) is also required for the puja.

Maha Shivratri Celebration

The devotees of Lord Shiva should preferably do the following things on this day.
1. Observe fast on this day, taking only fruits & milk.
2. Perform elaborate puja of Lord Shiva, and perform Rudrabhisheka. Chant various hymns & bhajan of Lord Shiva.
3. Use this day to bring to your mind the infinite ways your life has been blessed. In our obsession with thinking on what all I dont have we fail to see the infinite ways in which we are so positively blessed. The fact that you can read right now is a great blessing, ask someone who cannot see. Feel truly blessed & gratified and express your thanks & devotion at the feet of Lord by chanting the mantra ‘Om Namah Shivaya’ as many times as you can.
4. Practice Dhyana for longer periods than the usual routine. Be one with your loving God, and revel in utter fulfillment.
5. Remain more introvert on this day contemplating about the truths of life.
6. Go for darshan of Lord Shiva where he is properly & regularly worshipped.
7. Try to get darshan & satsang of some learned Mahatmas. Offer sewa at Ashrams & Temples.

Coming Date Magh Purnima

Today 25 February is Celbration Magh Purnima in Hindu people.

Aboput Magh Purnima

Today is venerated in different ways across the country. This is a very auspicious bathing day and is of the same significance as that of karthik purnima. Maghi Purnima is revered as a ‘bathing festival’ across the country.

Many people observe fast and do charity on this day. People offer food, clothes, money to the poor. Libations are offered to ancestors on this day after taking a dip in the rivers. Then Brahmans are fed and given “Daan- Dakshina” according to one’s capacity. Lord Vishnu is worshipped on this day after bath. Like all other purnima days, Satyanarayana Vratham is observed on this day. In some places Goddess Parvati Devi and Bruhaspati (Guru) are worshipped on Maha Maghi day.

It is believed a holy dip in scared Ganga is highly meritorious on this day. It is believed that bathing in the holy river Ganges frees oneself from sins and thus paves the way towards salvation. Thousands of pilgrims visit Prayag (Allahabad) to take a dip at the holy Triveni Sangam -the confluence of the sacred rivers Ganges, Yamuna and the legendary river Saraswati. Every year Magh mela is organized at Sangam in Allahabad during this time.

Grand festivals take place at along the banks of the holy rivers like Ganga, Yamuna, Sarayu, Narmada, Tapti, Kaveri, Krishna, Godavari etc. Taking a holy dip on this day in Kumbakonam, Kannyakumari and Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu and Pushkar Lake in Rajasthan is also considered to be very meritorious.

This day also has special significance for the Buddhists. It is on this day that Gautama Buddha announced his impending death. Many religious ceremonies are held at the viharas, where prayers are said to the Buddha. The day’s programme began with hoisting of the religious flags atop all monasteries at dawn and chanting of the sacred verses from the Tripitaka.

On the full moon day of Magh, the float festival is celebrated at Madurai in Tamilnadu which is famous for the Meenakshi Temple. A sacred tank, the Mariamman Teppakulam Sarovar is located near Madurai. On this day the highly decorated the images of Meenakshi and Lord Sundareshwara are mounted on floats and are taken to this Sarovar or tank accompaniment by music and devotional songs. Magh Purnima happens to be the birthday of King Tirumala Nayak who built Mariamman Teppakulam which is a few kms to the east of Madurai.

In 2013 Magh purnima has special significance. This year from 27th January to 25th February the Purna Kumbh Mela is being held in Allahabad which occurs after every 12th years. Maghi Purnima is an important bathing date during the Kumbh Mela and the Magh Mela. This year maghi purnima is the last auspicious bathing day of the Maha Kumbh mela.
Magh Purnima Snan(Bath) 
Today is fifth Sahi Snan penultimate bathing day of the 55-day Maha Kumbh - Maghi Poornima - began early Monday at the Sangam here, with lakhs taking an early holy dip in the Ganga.
The day is special as the "Kalpawasi" pilgrims end their month-long penance and sabbatical from worldly life on Maghi Poornima.
More than 1.5 crore devotees are likely to take a holy dip at the Sangam - the confluence of rivers Ganga, Yamuna and the mystical Saraswati Monday.
The Kumbh mela administration has deployed extra police forces to man major intersections and roads in the sprawling 52 sq km mela premises. Photography has been banned at all bathing ghats, on the basis of a high court directive.
Special traffic arrangements are in place to divert devotees to less congested roads and ensure smooth exit after the ritual bath.
Still haunted by the tragic stampede of Feb 10 on Mauni Amavasya at the city railway station which left 37 dead, the railway protection force (RPF), civil police and the government railway police (GRP), along with Indian Railways, has made elaborate arrangements for the return of the crowds after bathing.
To meet the extra demand, the railways has opened additional ticketing counters at Prayag Ghat, Rae Bareilly, Lucknow, Faizabad, Ayodhya and Sultanpur.
Extra coaches too have been added to trains plying between Lucknow and Allahabad, a railway official informed.
"Additional teams of officials have been sent to all stations and all care is being taken to ensure smooth passage of the Maghi Poornima bathing," senior divisional commercial manager Ashwani Kumar Srivastava said.
The administration is on tenterhooks as it rained during the weekend, making the temporary roads unmotorable; large areas have been turned into swamps by rain.
According to the ascetics at the Kumbh, the auspicious time for bathing began at 1:40 Sunday night; it will continue till 2:01 a.m. Tuesday.
"Most people will take a bath during the auspicious time, though technically, bathing time ends at 1:41 p.m. Monday, for 'Bhadra' is on till then. The Kalpavasis, who slept on thatched floor, gave up worldly life, cooked for themselves and lived in solitude since Makar Sankranti (Jan 14), will Monday disband their hutments and head back home. They will also take along a plant of Tulsi that they sowed on the first day of their Kalpwas," one ascetic explained.
The Kumbh, which falls after every 12 years, began this year at Allahabad Jan 14; it is set to conclude March 10, Maha Shivratri day.

Jaya Ekadashi-Coming Date Jaya Ekadashi-About Jaya Ekadashi-Jaya Ekadashi Story-Jaya Ekadashi Images

Coming Date Jaya Ekadashi

Jaya Ekadashi is Coming on 21 January 2013.

About Jaya Ekadashi

Jaya Ekadasi is observed during the waxing phase of the moon (Shukla Paksha) in the month of January/February. In 2013, the date of Jaya Ekadashi is February 21- Smarta and February 22 - Vaishnava. It is also observed as Bhishma Ekadashi and Bhoumi Ekadasi by various Hindu communities. It is believed that observing Jaya Ekadashi will help in getting rid of remorse attached to sins committed and it also leads to liberation (Moksha).
The importance of Jaya Ekadashi was narrated to Yudhishtira by Lord Krishna and is found in the Padma Purana and the Bhavisyothara Purana
Fasting on Jaya Ekadashi is considered highly beneficial. Some staunch Vishnu devotees also do not sleep during the night. All the normal rules associated with Ekadashi fasting is followed.

Jaya Ekadashi Story

Once in the Kingdom of Indra (swarag), Lord of the demi-gods, King Indra in company with other devtas went out for a leisurely walk in the jungle of Nandan. Many other devtas lived in this jungle including one was the father of Malyavan. Malyavan was very handsome, knowledgeable and full of vitality who was passionately in love with one of the great celestial dancers named Pushpavati. The affection for each other was so immense that at times both lost concentration of their assigned duties and instead continued admiring each other. 

As the King arrived in the heart of the jungle, an audience was gathered and a heavenly dance known as “Nrutya” was arranged in order to please Lord Indra. As the arrangement took its pace, both Malyavan and Pushpavati, who were both performing the dance, started loosing their concentration and focus. Noticing this for quite some time, the King eventually became furious, stopped the dance and cursed the two of them to be born on earth as human peasants and undergo great sufferings. 

Due to this curse, both were born in the region of the Himalayas as poor peasants who were in great distress and agony. They had nowhere to live, no food to eat nor any good clothes to wear. Due to the cold Himalayan climate, they suffered great pains physically and mentally. They did not have anyone who could help them to relieve their pain or support them. In turn they turned out to be mean and of a very malicious nature, unable to realise the difference between right and wrong. 

Years passed in this way, but one year, on the eleventh day of the month of Maha, they went on with their usual daily routine in search for food and water. Finding no food they both sat under a tree, hungry and shivering in the cold. They could not even quench their thirst due to the cool breeze and did not sleep during the whole night. 

Not realising of the day and its significance they had performed a grand penance and due to this utmost penance on this day of Jaya Ekadashi, Lord Narayan appeared and pardoned them with blessings. They both returned into their original states of a devta and a dancer. They both went to their dwelling and visited their King in swarag. Upon entering the gigantic palace, they politely came and bowed down to the King. Lord Indra was very surprised to see them and upon learning of their penance and the Lords blessings, the King in turn bowed down to both them and admitted that He, the King of devtas, would bow down to any person who keeps and follows the vratt of Ekadashi as they did. 

Great rewards and benefits, even greater than performing various donations, yagnas and visits to various pilgrimages (tirthyatra) are earnt by those who observe the vratt with full faith and vigour on this day.
