Those who cannot be at the Isha Yoga Center during Mahashivratri can make use of the night in the following manner.
It is most beneficial to stay awake, aware and in a vertical position throughout the night, without lying down.
To create a more conducive atmosphere, you can place Sadhguru’s picture in your space, and light a lamp, offer flowers and burn incense.
You can chant, sing or listen to devotional music.
If alone, it is good to take a walk or be with nature. If in a group, it is good to be silent as far as possible.
11:10 pm to 11:30 pm - Nadi Shuddhi
11:30 pm to 11:50 pm - AUM chanting
