Maha Shivratri 2022: Full puja schedule, auspicious timings, date and Shivratri puja vidhi

New Delhi: One of the most prestigious and widely celebrated festivals of our country – Maha Shivratri will be celebrated on 1st March this year. This day is basically a celebration of the marriage ceremony of Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati. Devotees reach the temples in large numbers and offer prayers.

Maha Shivratri in Jammu and Kashmir:

In some parts of the country such as Jammu and Kashmir, preparations for Maha Shivratri begin a few days before the festival. It is the major festival of the Kashmiri Pandit (KP) community and is known as Herath. This festival is celebrated by Kashmiris a day before the rest of the country. Hence, KP will start the Maha Shivratri festival on February 28 this year. On March 1, they celebrate Salaam – a ritual where the elders and guests of the household give money to newly dressed children for Shivaratri as a token of love.

The pan-India festival is also widely celebrated by Indians settled abroad.

Our country is home to various traditions and cultures and hence, while honoring each of them, festivals hold more importance for all. Celebrations and rituals may differ as we move from north to south or east to west, but the spirit with which the worship is performed is the same.
