In the Western world it is truly beautiful to witness the growth of yoga as a practice, as an exercise and as a lifestyle itself. A drop of honey will lead to the honey pot. Practicing yoga does naturally provide benefits of health and less stress, but beyond it all is the experience of gravitating towards Source expressed in words such as Freedom, A Oneness, Blissful, Inspired, In the Now etc.
When we go deeper into the science of yoga to understand yoga as a journey through consciousness, we realize that words such as liberation and enlightenment are not a distant concept but an amazing experience we can have in our daily realities. Observing Mahasivratri does ease us into awakening the potential underlying objectives within yoga. Once a year during these moments we are in now, based on the lunar calendar, we (humanity- every human on Planet Earth) are subjected to the energies of an inward mind. Yogis, Sages and householders in India have celebrated the culmination of this period that gifts enlightenment and higher consciousness for thousands of years as Mahasivratri.
Once a year, Sages undergoing austere penance through the year, come out to bless everyone as Lord Siva. Lord Siva is the celebration of our awake consciousness as in realizing our soul and God to be One. A higher conscious mind is like the mind of Leanardo Da Vinci, a genius and as a Sage Emperor like Mahatma Gandhi, capable of effecting changes to the entire nation, if not to the world. Utilize this auspicious period of divinely sanctioned time to enhance your realities.

Observing Mahasivrathri is transforming as we awaken to whom we truly are. Lord Siva, the dissolver of ego enables clearance of past karmic negatives that have blocked us from our true potentials. Mahasivrathri is rejuvenative as we tune into the eternal yogi within ourselves as the surrender of our body consciousness to the awake soul, the eternal yogi.
The objective of Mahasivrathri is to experience turiya, the realm of enlightenment- the fourth state of consciousness that is beyond being awake and sleeping. The proximity of the mind with Source does align our thoughts to be empowered as we are in touch with our inner wisdom of calm, serenity, inspiration, abundance and knowing.
