ABOUT MAHA SHIVARATHRI
MahaShivarathri is an all night ceremony in honor of Shiva who is the Great Being associated with being undisturbed in meditation as well as overseeing creation and destruction (the cycle of life). The ceremony is performed from Sun down to Sunrise and symbolizes passing through darkness and returning to the light. Devotees often observe fasting for 24hrs and the nights activities will include prayer, chanting, kirtan, scripture, meditation, contemplation of virtues and a Shiva Puja. Shivarathri occurs every month on the 13th night of the waning moon, however, MahaShivarathri is celebrated only once each year on the second moon. This year it lands on March 3rd/4th.
ABOUT THE MUSIC OF YOGA
Kirtan is a spiritual service with five parts that is found in the path of Bhakti Yoga. One of the parts is the chanting of Sanskrit healing and empowerment mantras and the singing of devotional songs called bhajans. In other words, kirtan is a musically guided meditation practice. Practicing this yoga calms the mind, relaxes the body and energizes the Spirit.
Come dive into the depths of your own heart in this safe, supportive environment. No previous yoga, meditation or singing experience is necessary to participate.
Practice is led by Dayakar Das, a practitioner of 28 years, who has been teaching bhakti yoga since 1999.
