Maha Shivratri is a Hindu festival celebrated every year dedicated to worship of Lord Shiva. It is celebrated on the fourteenth night of the New Moon, during the dark half of the month of Maagha or Phalguna (February – March).
In 2016, Maha Shivratri will be celebrated on Monday, 7th March 2016.
Maha Shivaratri Pooja has been given tremendous significance in Hindu mythology. It is believed that a person who worships Shiv Lingam on this day gets rid of all the sins committed during the year.
On this day devotees of Lord Shiva visit Shiva temples and perform Puja of Shivling.
Devotees keep a strict fast all through the day, make offerings of flowers, bilipatra leaves, fruits and incense to the Shivling.
They maintain long vigils during the night, keeping awake to listen to stories, hymns and songs. The fast is broken only the next morning, after the nightlong worship.
