Namashivaya vaazhga , Nadan thaal vazzhga,
Imai pozhudum yennenjil neengaadhan thal vazhga,
Kokazhi aanda guru mani than thaal vaazhga,
Agamam aagi nindru annippan vaazhga,
Yekan anegan iraivan adi Vaazhga.
Long live Namashivaya, Long live the holy feet of our Lord,
Long live the feet of him who does not move away from my mind even for a second.
Long live the feet of my Guru who ruled over Thiruvavaduthurai
Long live the feet of him who became holy books and comes near us,
Long live the feet of the God who was one but appeared as many.
Maha Shivaratri is an annual festival dedicated to the Lord Shiva. The celebration includes maintaining an all-night vigil and prayers, which is marked as “overcoming darkness and ignorance” in one’s life and the world through Shiva. According to the legend, Maha Shivaratri was the day when Lord SHIVA drank poisonous negativity to protect the world. “Om Namah Shivaya”, the sacred mantra of Shiva, is chanted throughout the day & night.
At SVT, “Maha Shivaratri” coincides with the 8th day of “Shiva Mahotsavam” celebrations.
