Happy Maha Shivaratri!

The festival of Maha Shivaratri is observed by the worshippers of Lord Shiva. On this day, the devotees visit the Shiv temple and are up all night singing bhajans in praise of the Lord. They observe a strict fast and consume only milk and fruits. Some don’t even drink water during this period.

Legend has it, that on this day Lord Shiva and Parvati were married. It’s also considered as the night Lord Shiva performed the Tandava (dance). Devotees strongly believe that praying to Lord Shiva on this auspicious day washes away their sins and takes them closer to the path of salvation.

May you find your life partner this year with Lord Shiva’s blessings and wish you all a very Happy Maha Shivratri!
