Join Shambhavi Sarasvati and the Jaya Kula community for an evening of puja, Shiva sadhana, stories, and kirtan on the occasion of Maha Shivaratri.
Maha Shivaratri is the great dark night of Lord Shiva. It represents the possibility that we can meet Lord Shiva, our own enlightened essence nature, in the midst of our ordinary lives. It is the night when we worship the Supreme Reality and sing the names of God understanding that God is always appearing right here, even in darkness.
