Region 7 - Maha Shivaratri Celebrations

The most auspicious night of Mahashivarathri was observed on Monday, 20th February 2012, at the Gandhiji Hall, Bristol.

The evening commenced with the uplifting chants of Rudram whilst an Abishekam was offered to the lingam. This was followed by the singing of Lingashtakam as devotees had the opportunity to offer flowers and their prostrations to the Lingam.

This offering was followed by an extract from Bhagawan’s Divine Discourse given on Mahashivarathri night 2004, in which He gave the following Divine assurance after a Golden Lingam emerged from His mouth:

"Dear children! I will protect you wherever you are. I am utilising all my time for your sake. My only aim is to see that you are always happy. No danger will ever befall this body. Be assured of this. Always remember God, wherever you are. Whatever work you may undertake, consider that as Swami's work. I will always look after your welfare. In fact, even your parents may not be able to understand and appreciate your feelings as well as I do".

A vibrant session of devotional singing sanctified and energised the atmosphere, allowing all those gathered to experience immense joy and focus on our Beloved Lord.
