Celebrating Shivaratri

  • Feb 28, 2014 · 9:00 PM

Maha Shivaratri literally means "Great night of Shiva". Shiva is known as the king of yogis. Traditionally it is a night that Yogis stay up all night meditating and chanting to clear negativity and connect directly with Shiva's divine formless form (linga); the auspicious, primordial energy of existence. Shivaratri is a holy occasion that occurs once a year and is a special night for purifying our thoughts and empowering our goals. It signifies the transition from darkness to the dawn of divine joy and wisdom. We are observing Shivaratri this year on it's actual date, Friday, Feb. 28th! We look forward to sharing this auspicious night with those of you who wish to attend all, or part of it. The Friday night Shivaratri program will replace our First Saturday in March Kirtan that would typically be the next night, Sat. March 1st. We will be chanting various arrangements of “OM Namah Shivaya” with some guided meditations occurring between chants. Participants can sit in chairs, or on the floor. You may also bring beverages or snacks to share during the event or afterwards at midnight, when we conclude.
