The sacred land of India celebrates numerous festivals for spiritual growth, and among them, Mahashivratri is foremost in its potency. The night’s unique planetary positions confer tremendous physical and spiritual benefits for one who remains awake keeping one’s spine erect.

The 14th day of every lunar month, the day before the Amavasya or new moon, is referred to as Shivratri. On this night, people on the spiritual path usually perform sadhanas (spiritual practice) of special significance. Of the twelve Shivratris that occur in a calendar year, the one that occurs in the lunar month of Magha, is called Mahashivratri because it is the most powerful of the twelve Shivratris.
