Why should I do Mahashivratri Sadhana
It is said that during the Samudra Manthan (churning of the ocean), a pot of poison (halahal) emerged from the ocean, which had the potential to destroy the entire universe. The gods and demons were terrified and sought Lord Shiva's help.
Lord Shiva came forward to help and drank the poison to save the universe. However, the poison turned his throat blue, and he came to be known as Neelkanth, which means the one with a blue throat. The gods and demons then realized the greatness of Lord Shiva, and they celebrated the day of his victory over the poison as Maha Shivratri.
Another story associated with Maha Shivratri is the wedding of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. It is believed that on this day, Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati got married, and their union symbolizes the union of Shakti (the divine feminine energy) and Shiva (the divine masculine energy).
Many also believe that on this day, Lord Shiva performed the Tandava, which is a divine dance that signifies the cosmic cycles of creation and destruction.
