Fire Ceremony Shivaratri havan
By worshiping Shiva, the Consciousness of Infinite Goodness, we cultivate his qualities of freedom from attachment, and freedom from bondage to this world of objects and relationships. We cultivate the attitude of perceiving the intrinsic reality, not the extrinsic appearance. We identify with that which does not change, and become the witness of the changes of nature. From this perception, we act and interact with the world remembering the eternal reality. We free ourselves from pain and fear, and see them as passing states of mind, accepting the will of God.
Shivaratri is great festival of convergence of Shiva and Shakti. Each month, Chaturdashi Tithi during Krishna Paksha is known as Masik Shivaratri.
