Maha Shivaratri program details will be shared soon

Devotion to Lord Shiva

Mahashivaratri, dedicated to Lord Shiva, symbolises destruction, transformation, and regeneration. On this day, devotees express their love, devotion, and surrender to Lord Shiva, seeing it as an auspicious moment for spiritual progress and self-realization. Engaging in meditation, prayer, and introspection, they seek blessings for inner peace, wisdom, and enlightenment. At Mohanji Centre of Benevolence in Australia, special prayers, rituals, and activities are being planned for spiritual ascension, aligning with the profound energies of Mahashivaratri.

Shivaratri is particularly important for us to stay connected to consciousness by aligning an activity which is aligned to, or which is connected to, the consciousness – the consciousness of Shiva.

The Night of Cosmic Union

According to Hindu mythology, Mahashivaratri marks the night when Lord Shiva performs the cosmic dance, known as the Tandava. This dance represents the cosmic cycles of creation, preservation, and destruction. Devotees believe that on this night, the divine energy is particularly active, and participating in prayers and rituals can lead to spiritual elevation.
