Hari ini tanggal 14 feb 2014 merupakan hari ke 14 bulann phalguna yang bertepatan dengan hari raya

siwarartri. Pada hari yang sangat bertuah ini umat hindu terutama dari sekte siwa melakukan tapa maha
siwaratri berupa puasa penuhdan tidak tidur sampai keesokan harinya. Ada cerita yang sangat terkenal
yang melatarbelangi siwaratri ini yaiyu cerita lubdhaka. Dikisahkan lubdhaka ini pada suatu hari pergi
berburu ke hutan. Seharian dia mencari binatang buruan tetapi tidak satupun yang berhasik ditemui. Dia
tidak putus asa walaupun hari menjelang sore hari dia tetap berburu. Vishnu Tatwa seperti ekadasi dan
janmastami. Pada waktu malam ada 4 puja yang dapat dilakukan di rumah di temple ataupun bagi
mereka yang melakukan puasa tidak tidur (jagarana)

Dimanapun lingga dewa siwa ditemukan di planet bumi ini pada waktu malam hari ke
empat belas saat malam hari di bulan Phalguna, dewa siwa pemimpin para dewa masuk
ke lingga tsb. Untuk alasan ini hari ini dinamakan siwaratri dan hari ini sangat di kasihi
oleh Tuhan Sri Hari.

On Shiva ratri, the fourteenth day of the dark fortnight of the month of Phalguna
(February-March), for the pleasure of Lord Shri Krishna, a Vaishnava should always take
a vow to fast following the rules of fasting.

(Hari Bhakti Vilasa 14/187 from Gautamiya Tantra)

SRI KRSNE VAISNAVANANTU PREMA BHAKTI VIVARDHATE


KRSNA BHAKTI RASA SARA VARSI RUDRA ANUKAMPAYA

A Vaishnava who fasts on Shivaratri throughout the day and night, will receive the mercy
of Rudra (Shiva)who is constantly diving in the ocean of the mellow of devotion to
Krishna. Thus one's devotion to Krishna increases rapidly.
