    Maha Shivaratri celebration: Things to do on 'The Great Night of Lord Shiva'

    The word Maha Shivaratri stands for ''The Great Night of Lord Shiva". This festival is celebrated mainly in North Indian states like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand.

    Hindus observe Shivaratri on the 14th day of every lunar month or the day before the new moon. Therefore, Shivaratri is celebrated throughout the year, but Maha Shivaratri, which falls in the month of Maagha or Phalguna as per Hindu calendar, is of great religious importance. This year, Maha Shivaratri is celebrated today (February 21) across India. Shiva, the god of destruction, is worshipped on this day. On this day, the ardent devotees of Lord Shiva, fast, offer puja and practice meditation, with the belief that this leads to health, wealth, success and awakening.
