Mahashivratri Celebrations

Quote Spataro

“It is my wish and my blessing that you make use of this Mahashivratri night to enhance your perception, to have a taste of a larger slice of life” – Sadhguru

Mahashivratri falls on 18th February 2023
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.

Mahashivratri is an exuberant nightlong festival at Isha Yoga Center, Velliangiri Foothills , Coimbatore, with explosive meditations and spectacular musical performances by Sounds of Isha and other renowned artists, drawing a few lakhs people. In the presence of Sadhguru, this unrivaled celestial extravaganza opens up the tremendous spiritual possibilities of the night. Read More
