Region 2 - Mahashivarathri Celebrations at Heston Sai Centre

The night of Shiva or Shivaratri, can be understood by contemplating on Lord Shiva as more than just the Personal aspect of God; He is also the Impersonal aspect or the Supreme Brahman. In one of His discourses, Swami declared “This Divine Manifestation (of Swami) is one where all the names of God, and all the forms of God, ascribed by man to God, through the ages are present in full!”

The Holy occasion of Maha Shivaratri was celebrated at the Sathya Sai centre of Heston on Sunday 22nd February 2015 between 6pm to 8pm.

The Celebration started with 108 Gayatri mantras then followed by bhajans, lingastakam and pooja for Lord Shiva. All devotees had the opportunity to do the milk abishekam and offer Bilva leaves to the Shiva lingam.

SSE Children and teacher Sister Neeraja performed the final Aarti for Bhagawan Baba and SSE student Kaaviya Nimalarupan read an article from Bhagavan's discourse about the beautiful symbolic meaning of Maha Shivaratri. Maha Prashadam was served to all devotees to conclude this special day.

Swami emphasised the inherent excellence of the customs, conventions, ritual and ceremonies laid down by the Sages are for limiting the vagaries of the human mind, besides regulating and educating the emotions and impulses to help the Sadhaka to attain self-realisation.
