Shivratri Celebrations At NESSP

Press Release

It is said  that a devotee who performs sincere worship of Lord Shiva on the auspicious day of Shivratri is absolved of sins and attains moksha. The great night becomes even more fortunate when it falls on a Monday which is considered auspicious for Lord Shiva.

New England Shirdi Sai Temple (NESSP) celebrated its first Maha Shivratri in the new temple on March 4th, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 1:00 AM. On this auspicious occasion of Maha Shivratri, Mahanyasa Poorvaka Rudrabhishekam, Samuhika Rudrabhishekam, Maha Lingarchana were performed under the guidance of the temple Priest and 11 Ritwiks.

Maha Lingarchana is a worship of Lord Shiva, while performing puja to 365 Mruthika Linga (Putta mannu linga). Shiva Shakti is invoked into each Shiva Lingam through vedic mantras during Shodasa Aavarana puja and worshiped with great devotion followed by Abhishekam to seek the blessings of Lord Shiva for health, wealth, prosperity, bliss and ultimate mukthi.

The specialty of this year’s shivratri celebrations is, Samuhika Rudrabhishekam was performed for the first time in the temple where 200 devotee families participated. The families were given all the pooja materials including the Murthika linga that were prepared by the volunteers for the abhishekam to be performed. The prayer hall was filled with peace, divinity and positive vibes during the chanting of Rudram and shiv bhajans.

Bhandara / Prasadam was served to all the devotees.
