“Mahashivratri is of great significance for all those who aspire for the Ultimate. May this night become an exuberant awakening for you.”
Mahashivratri is one of the most significant event for spiritual seekers. This – the darkest night of the year – celebrates Shiva - the Adiyogi who is considered the First Yogi, from whom the yogic tradition originates. The planetary positions on this night are such that there is a powerful natural upsurge of energy in the human system. It is enormously beneficial for one’s physical and spiritual wellbeing to stay awake and aware in a vertical position throughout the night.
Mahashivratri presents us with a unique opportunity to make use of the forces of nature for our wellbeing. The exuberant nightlong festival at the Isha Yoga Center sets the ideal ambience for the unfolding of an intense spiritual experience.
