Mahashivratri is one of the largest and most significant among the sacred festivals of India.
The festival celebrates the Grace of Shiva, who is considered the Adi Guru or the First Guru from whom the Yogic tradition originates.
The planetary positions on this night, which is also the darkest night of the year, are such that there is a powerful natural upsurge of energy in the human system.
It is enormously beneficial for one’s physical and spiritual wellbeing to stay awake and aware in a vertical posture throughout the night. Happy Mahashivratri to all.
