Significance of Maha Shivarathri !!!

“No one seems to have made an effort to recognize the meaning and significance of Shivarathri. In fact, the very word Shivarathri reveals its meaning. “Shiva” means auspicious and “rathri” means night. Thus, Shivarathri means auspicious night.

Then the question arises, “Who is Shiva?”
The divine consciousness pervading all the living beings is none other than Shiva. This Shivattwa (divine consciousness) permeates not only human beings, but the birds, beasts and animals as well. In fact, every moment in our life can be taken to be Shivarathri. We need not wait for Shivarathri on a particular day in a year.”

– Divine Discourse, Shivarathri morning, 8 Mar 2005, Prasanthi Nilayam
