The celebrations will also be marked by meditation at midnight, guided by Gurudev himself, and singing of Shiva bhajans.
 
About the significance of Maha Shivaratri, Gurudev says, “Since thousands of years people have experienced and worshiped the Shiva Tattva. On the day of Shivaratri, the Shiva Principle, which remains above the material plane, touches the physical world.
