Mahashivaratri festival is one of the major Hindu festivals dedicated to god  Shiva. Mahashivratri means the “big night of Shiva”, it is celebrated during Krishna Paksha Chaturdashi in the Hindu month of Phalgun or 13th or the 14th night of the new moon, corresponding to February-March in Gregorian calendar. The festival is celebrated on the night. Lord Brahma (Creator), Lord Vishnu (Preserver) and Lord Shiva (Destroyer) are the Hindu Trinity gods worshipped by Hindu people.

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.

Meena Sankranti 2022 Date

Meena Sankranti 2022 Date, Meena Sankranthi 

Meena Sankranti is observed on the auspicious day when sun moves from Kumbh Rashi (Aquarius) to the Meena Rashi (Pisces). Sun keeps moving from one zodiac sign to another and stays for a month in each zodiac sign. Meena Sankranti marks the beginning of the last month in Hindu Solar Calendar. 

Devotees on this day get up early and take a dip in the holy river like Ganga, Yamuna, Saraswati etc. and seek blessings and forgiveness from Sun God or Surya to be freed from all their sins. After that offer Arghya to Surya Bhagwaan, chant Surya mantras and pray and seek good fortune from Surya. Many people do not consume onion, garlic, and alcohol. The sun’s transition from one phase to another makes the day longer and the night shorter.

Meena Sankranti Significance

All 12 Sankrantis of the year are considered highly auspicious for Dan-Punya activities. Some time duration before or after each Sankranti moment is considered auspicious for Sankranti related activities. For Meena Sankranti sixteen Ghatis after the Sankranti moment are considered Shubh or auspicious and the time window from Sankranti to sixteen Ghati after Sankranti is taken for all Dan-Punya activities.

The Sankranti's are divided into four groups named Ayan Sankranti, Vishuva Sankranti, Vishnupadi Sankranti, and Shadshitimukhi Sankranti. However, Meena Sankranti attains a unique importance for Hindus due to the transition of the sun.

Donation of land is considered highly auspicious during Meena Sankranti. Sankranti is known as Sankramanam in South India. South Indians consider Meena Sankramanam to be most auspicious for seeking a wish. Meena Sankranti is also spelled as Mina Sankranti.
