Mahashivratri Fast/Shivratri Importance


On Mahashivratri day, Hindu temples are thronged by the devotees to worship and carry pujas to Lord Shiva throughout the day. People chant the divine Shiva panchakshari mantra of 'Om Namah Shivaya'. Many people also observe a fast (upvas) for the whole day, not eating anything other than fruits, tea, milk, coffee and water. Popularly, on fasting or vrat days, people prefer and use sendha namak (rock salt) instead of the common salt.

The Shiva Purana states conducting of special pujas every 3 hours on the day of Mahashivratri. For Shiva pujas people do Abhisheks, where the Shiva Lingam or lingum is worshipped by pouring milk, yogurt, water, ghee, sugar and honey. On this day of Maha Shivaratri, devotees sing bhajans, aartis and chant mantras of the Shiva Shankar to seek the blessings of the almighty.

The MahaShivaratri festival is observed in honour of Lord Shiva and on this day Lord Shiva was married to Parvati. It is also believed that Lord Shiva performed the Tandava Nritya on this day. The great holy festival of MahaShivaratri holds special meaning for the Hindu ladies. It is believed that any lady who pray to Goddess Parvati also known as 'Gaura', the giver of 'suhag' for good husbands, marital bliss and a long, prosperous married life.

Names of Shiva


"Shankar", "Mahesh", "Neelakanth", "Bholenath", "Shambhu Kailasheshwar", "Umanath", "Nataraj", “trimbakeshwar” are a few of the many names of Shiva.

Mahashivratri Story


In Mahabharata, Bhishma, while resting on the bed of arrows referred to the observance of Maha Shivaratri by King Chitrabhanu. The story is as follows There was a time when King Chitrabhanu of Ikshvaku dynasty, who ruled Jambudvipa observed fast with his wife, the day being the day of Maha Shivaratri. The sage Ashtavakra came to the king’s court and asked the purpose of his observing the past. King Chitrabhanu explained that he got the gift of remembering the incidents of his previous life.

The King said to the sage that he was a hunter in Varanasi known by the name of Suswara. He killed and sell birds and animals to earn his livelihood. One day when he was roaming through the forests in search of any animal, due to darkness of night, he was unable to return home, so he took shelter and climbed over a tree. It was a Bael tree. He shot a deer previously on that day and he bundled and tied it to a branch on the tree. He was kept awake throughout the whole night because of hunger and thirst. He was worried and shed profuse tears at the thought of his poor wife and children who were also starving and anxiously waiting for him to come. Just to pass away the time, he started engaging himself in plucking the Bael leaves and dropping them onto the ground.

He returned home the next day, sold the deer, bought some food for the whole family. As he was about to break his nightlong fast, a stranger came and begged for food. The hunter served the food first to the stranger and then he had his own.

He saw two messengers of Lord Shiva at the time of his death. They came to conduct his soul to the abode of Lord Shiva. He learnt only then the great merit he had earned by the unconscious worship of Lord Shiva Shankar during that night of Maha Shivaratri. He came to know by the messengers that there was a Shiva Lingam at the bottom of the tree. The leaves he dropped fell on the Shiva Lingam and his tears fell onto the Lingam and washed it. Moreover, he had fasted all day and all night. Thus, the story’s conclusion was he unconsciously worshiped the Lord, lived in the abode of the Lord Shiva and enjoyed divine blessings for long ages and now he has been reborn as Chitrabhanu.

Holika Dahan, also known as Holika Deepak or Chhoti Holi, should be done at the time of Pradosh Kaal (which starts after sunset) while Purnimasi Tithi is still prevailing. All good work should be avoided when Bhadra prevails.

Holika Dahan Muhurta comes on the basis of following:

The first rule of thumb is to get Holika Dahan Muhurta at Pradosh time while Purnimasi Tithi is still prevailing and Bhadra gets over. If Bhadra occurs during Pradosh kaal but ends before midnight then Holika Dahan should be done when the Bhadra period is over. If Bhadra gets over after midnight then only Holika Dahan should be done in Bhadra and preferably during Bhadra Punchha. One must avoid Bhadra Mukha and in no circumstances Holika Dahan should be done in Bhadra Mukha. If Holika Dahan is done in Bhadra Mukha period, it brings bad luck for not only the individuals but for the whole city and country for the full year. In cases where Bhadra Punchha is not available between Pradosh and midnight period, one should do Holika Dahan during the Pradosh kaal. In occasions when neither Pradosh nor Bhadra Punchha is available (though which occurs rarely) then one should do Holika Dahan after Pradosh time.

It is of utmost importance to choose right Muhurta for Holika Dahan as compared to choosing right Muhurta for other Hindu festivals as it is believed that doing Holika Dahan at wrong time would only bring suffering and misfortune whereas doing puja at an incorrect time or muhurata will not bring puja benefits for other Hindu festivals.

Holika Dahan or Holi bonfire is followed by Holi/Dhulandi day when people play with colors. We at www.Durganavratri.in wishes all a happy and colorful Holi.


Holika and Prahlad Story


A great story of Hindu mythology revolves around the celebration of Holi festival as well as burning Holika as Holika Dahan. The story of Holika and Prahlad and subsequent Holika Dahan indicates that good always wins over the evil. Hiranyakashipu was a demon King and father of Prahlad (who was a staunch Vishnu devotee). Holika was Hiranyakashipu's sister.

Hiranyakshyap always wanted to be alive always and nobody could ever be able to harm him. In order to achieve this dream, he did a tapasya of Lord Brahma. One day, Lord Brahma was pleased and Hiranyakshyap was granted a boon by Brahma that made him think he was eternal and the most powerful man on earth. Lord Brahma could not grant him a boon that he would not die as death is the ultimate truth that comes to everybody.

Thus Hiranyakshyap asked Brahma for these boons:

Neither any human being nor any animal could kill him
Neither anybody could kill him inside the door nor outside the door
Neither he could be killed in day nor in the night time
Neither somebody could kill him by any Astra nor by any Shastra
Neither he could be killed on the land nor in the water and nor in the air.

Hiranyakshyap thought that if death has to come for everybody, he was able to persuade Brahma for boons which would made him immportal and nobody could kill him. Thus he started thinking that he himself was the God. He wanted all people to worship him as God. He started killing people did not accepted his orders, also killed many people including saints and rishis who refused to accept him as God. His son, Prahlad also did not accepted his father as God. Prahlad was a true worshipper of Lord Vishnu and saw Vishnu present in everything whether it was alive or materialistic. Hiranyakshyap got very angry with his son Prahlad and tried many ways to kill him. He was failed in a lot of attempts as Lord Vishnu always saved Prahlad when Hiranyakshyap gave him troubles. Then on one day, he called upon his sister Holika to help him. Holika had a boon by Lord Brahma that she would never be harmed by fire nor she could be burnt. Hiranyakshyap ordered Holika to sit on a fire with Prahlad so that Prahlad could be killed. But destiny had some else in store for them as because of ill mindset and the wrongdoings of Holika, she was burnt alive and Prahlad was saved by Lord Vishnu.

Later one day, Hiranyakashipu became very angry with Prahlad again when his son was worshipping Lord Vishnu and told him that the Vishnu is present everywhere and he could see him everywhere. Hiranyakashipu tied his son to a pillar and said that call here Vishnu to save you-he wants to see if Vishnu comes or not to save Prahlad. Prahlad said that Vishnu exists in everything, even in the pillar he has been tied. Upon hearing this he tried to demolish the pillar and in that way, he hit upon the pillar. As he was on his way to hit the pillar hard, Lord Vishnu came out of the pillar in the form of Narasimha (above half lion and other half human) in front of him, saved Prahlad and run towards Hiranyakshyap. Lord Narasimha caught hold of Hiranyakashipu at a doorstep and killed him by his big and sharp nails. Hiranyakashipu died at the time when it was dusk (means neither day nor night), doorstep (means neither inside the door nor outside the door), lap (means neither land nor water and air), killed by lion claws (means neither Astra nor Shastra) and Narasimha (means neither human being nor animal). So, Hiranyakashipu was killed that way as the boon by Brahma. Thus, Prahlad was saved by Vishnu god. This is a great real life story and Hindu mythology which indicates that, truth and good always wins over the false and evil.

Holika Dahan is celebrated by burning Pootana or Putana instead of Holika in some places of India. It revolves around the story of demon king Kansa, Putana and Lord Krishna. Kansa sent Putana to kill Krishna. Also a demon, Putana tried to kill Krishna with her poisonous breast milk. She started feeding baby Krishna of her poisonous milk. Baby Krishna in an attempt to kill the demon Putana, started sucking forcefully and she came in her original form. Finally Putana died and baby Krishna was saved but got dark blue skin color. From then onwards, people started celebrating Phagwah by burning Putana. On Holi celebration day, Krishna and Radha played holi by coloring each other's face's. Since then, people play holi every year by using colors.

Rituals of Holika Dahan


On the day of Holika Dahan, married women perform a ritual wherein they prepare a puja thali for worshipping Holika which contains Roli, Haldi, Wheat flour, 5 co-dung uple having hole, mauli (red thread), Jal and 5 or 7 jau bali. Women offer this puja to Holika for the well being and good future of their family. Often, women can be seen doing rounds of the Holika heap on the crossroads in the nearby regions. They offer water to Holika while making rounds for 5 or 7 times. A red thread is offered to the Holika in its diameter while making round for 5, 7 or 11 times . It is believed that offering haldi powder, wheat flour powder, jau bali and co-dung uple to the Holika will bring well being and long life of their kids. Women seek blessings from Holika for the prosperity and health for the whole year for their families.
