MAHA SHIVRATRI, the night of the worship of Shiva, is here -- the 14th night of the new moon. Hindus will offer prayers to the lord of destruction.
According to the Puranas, back in the mythical time when the ocean, Samudra Manthan, was churning, it churned up a pot of poison. Afraid it could destroy the whole world, the gods and demons ran to Shiva for help. In order to protect the world, Shiva drank the deadly poison, keeping it in his throat instead of swallowing, so his throat turned blue, and that's why he's known as the blue-throated one. Shivratri celebrates the night Shiva saved the world.
It's a special night for women. Married women pray for their husbands and sons. Single women pray for a wonderful husband like Shiva.
But it is for everyone. Those who say the name of Shiva during Shivratri with pure devotion are freed from all sins. They will reach the abode of Shiva and be free from the cycle of birth and death.
