Maha Shivaratri around the world
On Monday 7 March 2016, in Yoga in Daily Life ashrams around the world, Maha Shivaratri was celebrated with devotees gathering together for satsangs and pujas. In the Mahaprabhu Deep Ashram in Strilky, Czech Republic, Vishwaguruji Maheshwaranandaji dedicated the whole weekend to Lord Shiva.
In the Maha Shivaratri Satsang in the beautiful Great Hall of the historical Lucerna Palace in Prague, Vishaguruji explained once again the significance of Swayambhu Shiva, "Regardless by which name He is revered in different religions, He is the Supreme, the highest principle; the unborn, omnipresent and eternal Cosmic Consciousness, and the Light of Life that resides in every living being. The Shiva Lingam is the symbol of the divine and universal consciousness and by making puja (ceremony) to the Shiva Lingam, we give our reverence to the whole universe and its Creator."
At the same time, satsangs and pujas were celebrated in Yoga in Daily Life ashrams throughout the world. The photos below are from Shivaratri satsangs in Jadan Ashram in India, as well as some main ashrams in Europe, and several other countries.
