Get Lord Shiva’s Infinite Blessings On This Mahashivaratri


Mahashivaratri is one of the most awaited nights in the Hindu calendar. Shivaratri is a time of devotion and transformation. It is a time to showcase our gratitude and love to Lord Shiva, the great destroyer. The mere sacrifice of sleep or specific eatables does not necessarily help in taking us closer to salvation. There are several legends that are related to Shivaratri, but in this post we shall focus on how to make the best use of this divine day.

Festivals like Mahashivaratri need to be used to rejuvenate one’s belief in the supreme power of god. Devotion is the measuring stick for all individuals in god’s eyes. Make sure that even if you spend only one minute for your prayer, do it with sincere devotion. The following is a simple ritual that can be done on Mahashivaratri to get the infinite blessings of Lord Shiva :


After you finish bathing in the evening, light a lamp in front of Lord Shiva’s photo. Now place a small bowl of ghee in front of the lamp. Take a fistful of washed rice and keep it in a plate. Now sit in front of the lamp with your family and make each member keep some rice in fornt of them as told above. Take a grain of rice in your right hand , in between the thumb and ring finger, and chant the following mantra :

Om Namah Shivaya MahaRudraya MahaDevaya Namah

ॐ नमः शिवाय महारुद्राया महादेवाय नमः 

Place the grain of rice into the bowl of ghee after each time that you chant the above MahaShiva Mantra. After the rice finishes, light camphor in front of the lamp and pray to Lord Shiva sincerely, asking him to shower his divine grace on your family. Then give the ghee and rice to ants and birds by spreading it in an open area. This ritual will help to atone for your sins and Lord Shiva’s blessings will remove all your diseases, poverty and miseries. 
Wishing Everyone A Blessed Mahashivaratri
