Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals :Ch-2. Part - 13.
Ch-2. Siva – The Mystic Night ( Sivaratri)
We are blessed, thrice blessed, four-times, five-times blessed because we are seeking God who also seeks everything in this creation.
God seeks the world and the world seeks God. This is the mystery of creation, the subtlety of the spiritual path and the glory of the meditative life.
Jnana and Vairagya combined is Lord Siva, who is worshipped on Mahasivaratri day.
Lord Siva is easily pleased.
He is called Asutosh.
Asutosh means 'easily pleased'.
He is not a difficult Person.
You can quickly please Lord Siva.
If you call Him, He will come.
Sometimes He is also called 'Bhole Baba' – a very simple, not complicated Person.
He comes to help you, even unasked.
He helped the Pandavas.
The Pandava brothers were in war with the Kauravas in the Mahabharata battle, and Lord Siva helped them without their knowing that the help was being offered.
Lord Siva helped the Pandavas invisibly – and why would He not help us?
He helps all those who tread the righteous path.
So let us tread the path of righteousness and be recipients of Divine Grace.
