Masik Shivratri Importance

MahaShivratri is major Hindu festival celebrated in honor of Lord Shiva. Like MahaShivratri, Hindus also celebrate ‘Masik Shivratri’ that comes once each month. So,here's the Masik Shivratri Importance:

One legend states that Masik Shivaratri is celebrated in abode to the heavenly dance of creation, preservation, and destruction (The Tandava Nritya) performed by lord Shiva. People worship ‘Nataraja’(The dancing form of Lord Shiva) to achieve them get salvation(moksha) by removing ego, lust, hatred, anger, pride and jealousy.

Other legend says Shiva had appeared in the form of a ‘Lingam’, a symbol of Shiva himself. Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma, first worshiped Lord Shiva in this form of a ‘Linga’ on a Shivratri night.

During ‘Samudra Manthan’, Lord Shiva saved the Earth from destruction on this day and thus devotees worship on Masik Shivratri to honor Shiva. A pot full of poison first emerged during samudra manthan.That poison could have destroyed the world. Everybody prayed to Lord Shiva and he came to save his devotees,drank the poison but did not swallow it. Thus it is believed, the poison remained in his throat, making his throat look blue. Since that day, Shiva came to be known as ‘Neelkanth’.

Masik Shivaratri Vrat can be observed starting from Maha Shivaratri day and continue it for a year. It is believed that observing Masik Shivaratri Vrats, you can achieve difficult tasks by Shiva's grace. On Shivaratri, devotees should keep a night vigil and awake for the night and perform Shiva Puja at midnight. A mixture of milk, water, honey, and curd is poured on the Shivlinga and ‘Bilva’ leaves along with Dhatura, fruits, are offered to Shiva in all temples. Unmarried women observe Mahashivratri fast and Masik Shivratri fast to get married and married women for maintaining peace in their married life. Masik Shivaratri when comes on Tuesday is highly auspicious. Shivaratri Pujan is advised on Nishita Kaal (during midnight) which prevails for two Ghati.
