Maha Shivaratri Date, Rituals & Story

Hindu mythology is built around the philosophy of three Gods that constitute the universe. The concept of Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwar are well illustrated in our ancient Puranas. The Trinity is thought of to be the ultimate force that guides the whereabouts of the universe. While Lord Brahma is accounted for the creation of this vast universe, Vishnu is considered to be the operator of the same. In comparison, Shiva or Maheshwar is personified as a more destructive entity. Shiva is said to be the force that initiates destruction. Mahadev, as Shiva is widely known, opens his third eye, which emits raging aura to destroy all that comes its way. It is said that Maha Shivaratri is the festival dedicated to the sustenance of peace. Let us dive into the deep Hindu philosophy to figure out the main reason behind the celebration of this epic festival.
