One of the most religious Hindu festivals, Maha Shivaratri falls on the fourteenth day of the dark fortnight of Phalguna (February- March), and is dedicated to the worship of Lord Shiva, one of the principal Hindu deities. Maha Shivratri is the night when he is said to have performed the Tandava Nritya or the dance of primordial creation, preservation and destruction. The festival is observed for one day and one night only. Maha Shivratri is universally observed by all pious Hindus with fasting, singing of bhajans, recital of Sanskrit shlokas, offering of prayers, flowers, fruits and food that is specially prepared in honor of the deity and his divine consort, goddess Parvati. In keeping with the mood for the occassion, here we present you with a fabulous section on Maha Shivratri that includes splendid e-cards, wallpapers, recipes, quiz, pictures to color as also well-researched articles on the history of Maha Shivratri, rituals associated with the festival and much much more. Jai Shiv Shambhu!
