Shivarathri is celebrated on the 14th night of new moon in the month of Magham( ma= no, agham = suffering) Shivarathri celebrates the event by which Shiva saved the world. During Palazhi madhanam while everyone was eagerly awaiting Amruth or the nectar of eternity, a deadly poison called kala koodam or Halahalam was produced, which could potentially destroy everything. Siva consumes it in a gulp and saves the world. Parvathi and the Devas stayed awake, fasting and praying while he contained the deadly poison in his neck to become Neelakanta.
We need to understand the story in the context of our life.
Mahadeva personifies Nadam, Roopam, Kalam, Yogam, Bhootam, and ultimate nothingness or pure auspiciousness too. Today science says everything comes from Nothingness and returns to nothingness. Or in other words, everyone comes from a Divine energy and returns to it…..that which we worship as Shiva. Half of him is Sakthi, or the feminine creative energy that manifests as Prakriti. They compliment each other, because one cannot exist without the other.
Sivarathri is that great day when we realize the presence of the male and female energies within us. The cosmic energy vibration on this day/ night pushes us towards our spiritual peak. We enhance it by fasting, staying awake and satvic rituals. It is essential to stay awake at night and keep the spine erect to get maximum benefits. It is when we awaken the spiritual energies within us that we will be able to effectively deal with all poisons/ Kalakoodams that come our way in everyday life. Chant Om Namah Sivaya…….
