Shivaratri Yoga Sadhana & Diksha

February 16, 2015 - February 17, 2015

On this sacred day both the Cosmic Father and Mother, Shiva and Shakti, will be worshipped with abhishek of the Shivalingam as well as the Sri Yantra. This is most powerful as Rikhiapeeth is near an awakened shrine of Lord Shiva, Baba Baidyanath as well as a powerful Shaktipeeth, known as Hridayapeeth. During the two days, aspirants will live yoga by partaking in havans, aradhana, karma yoga, bhakti yoga and gyana yoga. Diksha will be given on the 17th February 2015.

 

16th – 17th February 2015

 

Shivaratri, the cosmic merger of Shiva and Shakti, is celebrated on the dark moon of Magha. Shiva is the eternal faculty of awareness, the unchanging, unmoving spark of the divine in each of us. Shakti gives us the mind and body that are our tools for the direct perception of this divine awareness. The union of Shiva and Shakti is the primordial symbol of eternal communion with the divine. Here there is neither purity nor impurity, neither affirmation nor denial, neither form nor formlessness, but a state of superconscious being that is beyond all duality.

—Swami Satyananda Saraswati

 

 

Shivaratri Aradhana

Throughout the day let your thoughts rest on Parvati and Shiva, the cosmic mother and father of the universe. At dawn and dusk perform puja of the Shiva lingam by chanting the mantra Om Namah Shivaya and offering bel leaves and water.
