Mahashivratri celebrated at Machinery Division

Raipur,(The States. news) – The marriage day of Bhagwan Shiv & Parvati was celebrated on 1st March 2022 on the occasion of Mahashivratri. Pt. VP Pandey convened the function at the temple in JSPL premises at Machinery Division-Raipur in which HR Head Suryodaya Dubey, Purchase Head Sandeep Agrawal, and many other employees and their family members were present.

Pt. VP Pandey said that there are several reasons for the celebration of Mahashivratri apart from the marriage anniversary of Bhagwan Shakar & Maa Parvati. Another saying is that when the Gods and demons churned the ocean together to obtain ambrosia that lay in its depths, a pot of poison emerged. Lord Shiva consumed this poison, saving both the Gods and mankind. The poison lodged in the Lord’s throat, turning him blue. To honor the savior of the world, Shivratri is celebrated. One more legend is that as Goddess Ganga descended from heaven in full force, Lord Shiva caught her in his matted locks, and released her onto Earth as several streams. This prevented destruction on the Earth. As a tribute to Him, the Shivalinga is bathed on this auspicious night. Also, it is believed that the formless God Sadashiv appeared in the form of a Lingodhbhav Moorthi at midnight. Hence, people stay awake all night, offering prayers to God.
