"The deeper meaning and objective of Mahashivratri:
Mahashivratri is a once a year celebration of Lord Siva, the awake Spirit within each of us. Mahashivratri is the gift of realized Sages to enable everyone to experience turiya, the state of higher consciousness. Observing Mahashivratri is transforming as we awaken to whom we truly are. Lord Siva, the dissolver of ego, enables clearance of past karmic negatives that have blocked us from our true potentials. Mahashivaratri is rejuvenative as we tune into the eternal yogi within ourselves as the surrender of our body consciousness to the awake soul, the eternal yogi.
The objective of Mahashivratri is to experience turiya, the realm of enlightenment. Proximity of the mind with the Source does align our thoughts to be empowered as we are in touch with our inner wisdom of calm, serenity, inspiration, abundance and knowing, which is necessary in our busy daily lives."
