The 14th day of the lunar month or the day before the new moon that occurs in February-March is of the most spiritual significance. On this night, the northern hemisphere of the planet is positioned in such a way that there is a natural upsurge of energy in a human being. This is a day when nature supports individuals towards one’s spiritual peak. One of the fundamentals of this night-long festival is to ensure that – to allow this natural upsurge of energies flows in the right direction – the process involves meditating with your spine vertical – you stay aware & chant OM or OM NAMAHA SHIVAYA.
Shivratri is the darkest day of the month. Any logical mind would resist darkness and naturally opt for light. But the word “Shiva” literally means “that which is not.” “That which is,” is existence and creation. “That which is not” is Shiva. “That which is not” means, if you open your eyes and look around, if your vision is for small things, you will see lots of creation. If your vision is really looking for big things, you will see the biggest presence in the existence is a vast emptiness. A few spots which we call galaxies are generally much noticed, but the vast emptiness that holds them does not come into everybody’s notice. This vastness, this unbounded emptiness, is what is referred to as Shiva. Today, in modern science it is believed that everything comes from nothing and goes back to nothing. It is in this context that Shiva, the power and potency of the vast emptiness or nothingness, comes into our realization and awareness.
Mahashivratri is an opportunity and a possibility to bring yourself to that experience of the vast emptiness within every human being. So it’s a special night for receiving too. Let this night be a night of awakening for us all together at Miracles Dubai.
We look forward to seeing you there.
