Maha Shivaratri

jagatah pitarau vande paarvati parameshwarau - I bow down to Paarvati and Parameshwar the parents of the Universe

Maata mey Paarvati Devi, Pitaa Devo Maheswaraha |
Baandhava Shiva Bhaktaascha Svadesho Bhuvanatrayam ||

Paarvati devi is my Mother, father is Maheshwara – Shiva.
Relatives are the devotees of Shiva and my own country is all the three worlds.

-Sri Adisankaracharya

========================================
Dear Readers
Many thanks for the wonderful words of best wishes! And they have come just a day before and are coming during Mahashivaratri.
May He, the Bholaanaath with the divine mother Bhavaani, residing in every one’s heart, guide us at every step is my earnest prayer to Him.
Shiva means mangal. Auspiciousness. May that quality, by His infinite grace, abide in all of us in abundance!
With love and prayers
Swami Vimokshananda

    My saluatations at the lotus feet of Master, Holy Mother, Swamiji and revered Maharaj
    Our dear Maharaj
    Aum Namo Narayanaya
    What a spirtually elevating mood was created at HQ last night. One could feel the divine presence in the temple on this holy Shivaratri night.
    Maharaj I must really thank you for unpacking the powerful mantra of “om namah shivaaya”.
    It makes me look at this wonderful prayer and the great Mahadev in a different light.
    I also express my gratitude to Master who in his infinite grace brought you to us to remove our ignorance.
    With love always

  2. Adarneeya Maharajji,
    Saadar Pranaam!
    Maharajji,
    I was blessed to have taken in Dip in HOLY GANGES at BRAHMA KUND at Haridwar on MAHASHIVRATRI DAY.
    It was ONE OF BEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE. I will definitely write my experiences and email it to you.
    Only sore point was that I lost my camera at the last moment. I am really missing all those great pictures of SHAHI SNAN AND ITS PROCESSION.
    Pranaam!
