Our apologies – the February 10th Powertime Practice Call was CANCELED due to Sucharita’s travel schedule.

Please enjoy the information below that will help you prepare for Maha Shivaratri on Tuesday, February 13th. By keeping vigil and chanting Om NaMaShiVaYa on this Night of Siva, you can achieve spiritual advancement equivalent to meditating for a million years! Dr Pillai says Lord Siva gives an opportunity for everyone to merge with his consciousness on this night.

Recommended Maha Shivaratri activities:

  • Chanting Om NaMaShiVaYa;
  • Hydrating a siva linga
    (or smooth stone or gem if you don’t have a siva linga) by pouring water, milk, juice, etc. over it as much as possible – every hour, for example;
  • Fasting (some don’t eat; others have only milk and fruits);
  • Keep vigil from 6 pm – 6 am if possible. Take a shower and wear clean clothes;
  • Pray to Lord Siva;
  • Watch Astroved’s 4- Kala Maha Shivaratri ceremonies (LIVE or recorded)

You may want to sign up for Dr Pillai’s Great Night of Shiva program. You will receive access to videos and audios for 4 webcasts you can watch during the night. This is a program Dr Pillai recorded in 2016, and he will be guiding you through the night. It is available at a bargain price on Pillai Center Academy.

Beforehand, watch Dr Pillai’s recent video teaching you what to do on Maha Shivaratri. He mentions you can chant NaMaShiVaYa, and also the variations, MaShiVaYaNaShiVaYaNaMaVaYaNaMaShi, and YaNaMaShiVa.
