Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji – Muniji blessed and led a very special Maha Shivratri celebration at Parmarth Niketan in which he was joined by Honble Transport Minister, Government of UP, Swatantra Dev Singhji; the beautiful Yogini Seane Corn; Mr Nitesh Jha; Mrs Radhika Jhaji; Mr Meenakshi Sundaram; and our family from around the world and across India, who joined together in the spirit of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.
The celebrations included divine Ganga Aarti, sacred Rudra Abhishek, chanting of Shiva mantras and meditating on the divine energy of Lord Shiva, which naturally resonate in the sacred land of the Himalayas at the foothills of the revered Neelkanth Mahadev Temple.
Pujya Swamiji explained, “By the grace of Bhagwan Shiva, the night of Shivratri is especially auspicious for winning the battle within ourselves, the battle between the Gods and the Demons, between right and wrong, between poison and nectar, between death and immortality. Let us use our puja, our prayers, our meditations on this night to pray for the divine intervention that within ourselves the good might vanquish the evil, that the nectar within us might emerge, rather than poison, that we too may be carried from death to immortality.”
