|What is 'Bhaang' (Cannabis) called in English?|
Har Har Mahadev!
Happy Maha Shivratri!
|Shiva is also referred to as Triambaka because of his third eye - the eye of vision. On Mahashivaratri, nature brings this possibility very close to us. While this is possible every day, on Shivratri nature makes it more available to us because the planetary positions are such that the energy, especially in the northern hemisphere, makes it very easy for a person to raise his/her energies upward.|
May you be blessed enough to become a Triambaka on this auspicious day!
|On the auspicious occasion of Maha Shivratri - the night of Shiva worship, let's savour 'Thandai' (made from cannabis, almonds, and milk) and sing songs in praise of the Lord Shiva and dance to the rhythm of the drums.|
|May Lord Shiva who is also known as Mahadev, Mahesh, Maheshwar, Shankar, Shambhu, Rudra, Har, Trilochan, Devendra and Trilokinath bless you at all times!|
|Mahashivaratri marks the night when Lord Shiva performed the 'Tandava' and it is also believed that Lord Shiva was married to Parvati.|
Let's celebrate this auspicious day with special prayers to Lord Shiva and offer water, milk, yogurt, honey and bel leaves to have a successful life.
