The Importance Of Maha Shivratri

It is mentioned in the Shiv Purana that the ‘Linga’, the symbol of the immaculate (formless) form of Shiva, appeared in the greatness of this holy date and was first worshipped by Brahma and Vishnu. That is why this date became famous as ‘Shivratri’. This day is also worshipped as the date of marriage of Mata Parvati and Shiva.

It is believed that the devotee who worships Lord Shiva with all his strength and power, with the help of his full strength and power, gets the full fruit of worshipping Shiva throughout the year, immediately on Shivratri.

God Shiva’s Favourite Bell

Bel (Bilva) leaves are very dear to Shiva. There is a story of a hunter in Shiva Purana. Once he was late in the forest, then he decided to spend the night on a bael tree. To stay awake, he thought of a trick – he would pluck the leaves one by one and throw them down all night. According to the legend, there was a Shivling just below the Bel tree.
