Maha Shivaratri: The Most Purposeful Night for a Yogi


Mahashivaratri is one of the most sacred nights of the year for a yogi. It is the night of the marriage between Shiva and Shakti. A night of the union of the progenitors of the science of yoga. 

Each new moon Shiva energy peaks in nature but on Mahashivaratri, Shiva energy reaches to the highest levels of the entire year. Therefore, this sacred night is the greatest opportunity for any yogi or spiritual practitioner to take their spiritual process to the next level.

Join Swami Brahmananda Saraswati on this sacred night and celebrate the divine union of Shiva and Shakti.

Swami ji will perform a puja signifying the divine Union, concluding with a short session on the secrets of utilizing the lunar cycles and and energy peaks of Shiva and Shakti on each full moon and new moon. Then Swamiji will lead us through a 15-20 min MahaShiva (Mahadev) meditation. We will conclude the celebration with sweets and prasadam.

"The purpose of yoga is to unite these two principles as so that Shiva and Shakti become one within the self." - Upanishads
