Shivaratri 2014, Maha Shivratri 2014 date

Pancha Bhoota Linga Shiva

Shivratri or Maha Shivaratri is one of the major Hindu festivals celebrated with gaiety. In 2014, Maha Shivaratri date is February 27, Thursday.

Maha Shivaratri is observed on Krishna Paksha Trayodasi / Chaturdashi in Falgun month as per North Indian calendars and Krishna Trayodasi / Chaturdashi in Magha month as per Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh calendars.

Devotees observe upvas (fasting) and Jagran on Shivratri to get blessings of Lord Shiva.

In the Puranas many kathas (stories and legends) explained the origin and significance of the festival Maha Shivaratri. As per one, during the period of churning the ocean (sagar manthan) by the gods and the demons, a pot of poison (Kaal koot) emerged from the ocean. This sudden incident terrified the dev ganas and asura ganas as the poison was capable of creating mahapralaya (deluge), which can destroy the entire universe.

To save themselves and the universe they went to Lord Shiva for help. For the world’s safer existence and the survival of living beings, Shiva drank the ‘Kaal koot visha (terrible poison). But, instead of swallowing he kept it in his throat. Keeping the deadly poison in his throat made Shivas throat turn blue. Because of this great miracle Shiva is also called Neelakanta, the one who has blue throat.

To commemorate the event of Shiva protecting the world with his miraculous act, we celebrate Maha Shivrathri.

  1. [...] Mas Shivratri in February – February 12, 2010 (Maha Shivaratri 2010) [...]

  2. [...] 2010, Shivaratri annual Brahmotsavam will begin on February 5, 2010, and end on February 15, 2010. Shivaratri 2010 date is February 12. Before the beginning of the 11-day festival, chief priests of the temple [...]

  3. Maha shivaratri for 2010 should be followed as per Karana (uthara) agama, 4 main points indicated
    1. shivaratri should be followed in shaura (solar) mash(month)
    2. shivarathri should not followed in shanthra(lunar) month
    3. when sun in kumba rasi and the magha nakshathra associated with full moon that is called magha month
    4.magha krishna paksha chathurtasi night is shivarathri.

    above same concept expressed in Veeragama,sinthiyagama,Bimbagama,prothgeethagama,sooksmagama,peemasamhitha,nirnayasinthu,lingapurana,
    vrathasoodamani. All these books also indicate kumba month.

    Therefore Februari 12th is not fallen in that rules. March 13th is the right day.

  4. so this means that those calenders that says march 2 are wrong???
