Among the festivals, Sivarathri is of exceptional importance. On Sivarathri night, divine vibrations are close to every human heart. At such a time, when people are engaged in holy tasks, they absorb the divine vibrations. The holy night of Sivarathri is intended to serve as a sacred occasion for turning the mind firmly towards God. As this night precedes the new moon day, it will be pitch dark everywhere outside while the heart will be filled with bright effulgence. Light represents auspiciousness. That is why this day is observed as Sivarathri.
