Astrology of Maha Shivaratri :
- As per mythology one Paravati ji( Lord Shiva’s consort) asked Lord Shiva, that what would please him the most. Lord replied that the 14th night of the new moon, in the dark fortnight on the month of Phalgun, is his best day.
- IN Hinduism the GOD and its Creation are separate- but at the same time considered a continuum of consciousness. Even wood has a consciousness and so do plants(proven by science now) So basically on the above date the spiritual vibrations are most apt for liberation or attaining better spiritual level.
