Dates and Muhurat of Masik Shivratri 2017

Shivaratri is one of the great festivals which indicate the meeting of Shiva and Shakti. In every  month, the day of Chaturdashi Tithi during Krishna Paksha is known as Masik Shivaratri.

Masik Shivaratri that is celebrated in the month of Magha is known as Maha Shivaratri. When Masik Shivaratri is celebrated in the month of Phalguna, it is also known as Maha Shivaratri.

Lord Shiva appeared in form of Linga in the midnight of Shivaratri, according to Indian Mythology. Shiva Linga was first worshipped by Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu. For this reason, Maha Shivaratri is also known as birthday of Lord Shiva and because of this devotees worship Shiva Linga during the occasion of Shivaratri.
