Maha Shivaratri – March 10th, 2013

Shivaratri is a night of auspiciousness where the entire cosmos reverberates with Bliss and Harmony. Shiva means Bliss, Harmony and Auspicious. On Shivaratri if one meditates he experiences a great Harmony in himself, a Blissful communion with the divinity within; an expansive connectivity with the entire cosmos. Of course, the entire activity of the Cosmos is nothing but the cosmic dance of Lord Shiva. On Shivaratri day, through meditation, if you tune your life rhythm with the cosmic rhythm of Lord Shiva’s dance – Ananda Thandava, if one integrates completely with that eternal symphony, then the internal purification sets in; the negative, poisonous vibrations of misery, agony, ill-health will melt away and the waves of Bliss blessed with harmony will enrich the life to lead a vibrant, happy, harmonious living.

Lord Shiva

Practice:

1. Assume a comfortable posture. Keep the body still till the end of the practice. Relax the body  completely.

2. Focus on Sushumna for 3 minutes.

3. Come to Guru Chakra. Feel the presence of Bhole Baba (Swami Rama). Meditate there with the special mantra (minimum 1 mala – 108 times)

“OM HREEM GURUDEVAAYA NAMAHA”

Seek the blessings of Bhole Baba.

4. Come to Ajna Chakra. Feel the presence of Lord Shiva in the form of Jet Black Shivalinga surrounded by Blue Light indicating Health, Harmony and Bliss.

5. Meditating on the Shivalinga in Ajna chakra, chant 9 times Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra.

Om Thrembhakam Yajaamahey Sugandhim Pushti Vardhanam
Oorvaa ruka miva bandhanaan
Mrityoar Muksheeya Maa Amrutaath

Mrityunjaya Mantra

6. Staying in Ajna Chakra, focusing on Jet Black Shivalinga chant (10 malas must)

OM HREEM NAMAH SHIVAAYA

7. Staying in Ajna chakra as above, chant again 9 Mrityunjaya Maha Mantra.

(This is called Sampooti-Karana – energizing the mantra with a package of Mrityunjaya Maha Mantra).


8. After completing 10 malas of the above mantra, come out of meditation by chanting the prayer –

OM SARVE BHAVANTHU SUKHINAHA
SARVE SANTHU NIRAAMAYAAHA
SARVE BHADRAANI PASHYANTHU

MAA KASHCHIT DUKHA BHAAG BHAVETH
LOKAA SAMASTHAA SUKHINO BHAVANTHU
LOKAA SAMASTHAA SUKHINO BHAVANTHU
SAMASTHA SAN MANGALAANI BHAVANTHU
