Masik Shivaratri (Monthly Shivaratri) – Prernamurti Bharti Shriji

Why is Shivaratri Celebrated?

Each Hindu festival is associated with many beliefs and mythologies, so is the holy day of Shivaratri. One belief says that Shivaratri is celebrated to commemorate the day when Lord Shiva consumed the deadly poison, which came out during Samudra Manthan (churning of the ocean) Whereas, according to another belief, it is the day when Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati got married.


Let’s know the legend of Samudra Manthan in detail.
The legend of Samudra Manthan is the reason as to why Shivaratri is celebrated. It is said that once the devas (Gods) and asuras (devils) were churning the ocean of milk. During the churning process, several things came out of the ocean. Among all those things were a pot of poison. The poison had the potential to destroy the universe, which frightened the devas (Gods) and asuras (devils). To seek help, they ran to Lord Shiva, the Lord of destruction. Lord Shiva, in order to save the universe from the deadly effect of poison, swallowed it 
but held it in His throat. This act resulted in Lord Shiva’s throat turning blue, for which he earned the name ‘Nilkantha’. To celebrate this event of Lord Shiva, Shivaratri is celebrated.

Masik Shivaratri Significance For Women

Throughout the country, the occasion of Shivaratri holds prime importance for the married women as well as young girls. On this day, women observe fast and worship Lord Shiva for the welfare of their husband and sons. Unmarried girls on the other hand observe fast and pray to Lord Shiva for a right match.

Faith In God

Have deep abiding faith in God and  his Messengers to humanity. Develop faith and trust in the teaching and lives of the Avataras, the Divine Incarnations. They sacrificed their lives for our welfare only. We must divert our confidence in mundane things and place our confidence in the wisdom of the Messengers of God. Implementing their teachings with faith will speed our progress in the spiritual life.

According to the Vedas, ultimate reality is all-pervading, uncreated, self-luminous, eternal spirit, the final cause of the universe, the power behind all tangible forces, the consciousness which animates all conscious beings. This is the central philosophy of the Hindu, and his religion consists of meditation on this spirit and prayer for the guidance of his intellect along the path of virtue and righteousness.

Morality, ethics and purity come only from God. These divine qualities need to be cultivated to a certain degree prior to the qualification and inner training that brings about a true awakening to the spiritual life. Deep and abiding faith in God, genuine spiritual hunger, moral living, earnest prayer, absolute dependence on God and a humble attitude remove many alleged problems confronting humanity. Real peace, security and enlightenment can be experienced only after embarking upon and leading a moral life. First comes awareness of the stupendous necessity for a spiritual life, followed by adherence to specific, spiritual guidelines. Only then may we enjoy blissful peace and security while living in the world.
