Shiva Ratri

Shiva Ratri is one of the more celebrated days in the Hindu calendar. It means literally “the Night of Lord Shiva.” Lord Shiva is the “Destroyer of Evil” & “the Greatest Devotee of Lord Vishnu.” He keeps the forces of darkness and destruction in check until it’s time for the annihilation of the universe. The Puranas (ancient scriptures in story form) explain the significance of this festival.
