Maha Shivaratri will be celebrated on Tuesday, 1 March this year. Falling in the Indian month of Phalgun, Maha Shivratri is one of the most grandly celebrated days. This year the auspicious occasion’s festivities will begin at 3:16 am on March 1 and will end at 1:00 am on March 2.Shivaratri is one of the most significant Hindu festivals that celebrate the convergence of Lord Shiva and Goddess Shakti. Maha Shivaratri is observed by remembering Lord Shiva and chanting mantras, prayers, and fasting. Devotees of Lord Shiva keep awake all night chanting mantras and prayers. There is a Shivaratri in every luni-solar month of the Hindu calendar known as Masik Shivaratri. However, Maha Shivaratri is celebrated only once a year in late winter (February/March) before the arrival of Summer. Maha Shivaratri literally means “the Great Night of Shiva”. It’s said that Maha Shivaratri is the night when Shiva performs the heavenly dance of creation, preservation and destruction. Maha Shivaratri celebrations include – jaagaran all-night vigil and prayers; Offerings fruits, leaves, sweets and milk to Lord Shiva; fasting with Vedic worship of Lord Shiva etc. Devotees recite “Om Namah Shivaya” mantra to praise Lord Shiva. Why do we celebrate Maha Shivratri? The festival celebrates the grand marriage of the lord of destruction, Shiva — with the goddess of fertility, love, and beauty — Parvati, who is also known as Shakti (power). Special prayers are offered in all Shiva temples throughout the holy night.

Unlike a lot of other Hindi festivals, Maha Shivratri is a more solemn festival as it is marked with internal reflection and introspection. Devotees spend the day in prayer, meditation and observing strict full-day fasts. Some celebrate in the morning while others organise ‘jagrans’ at night.

Sarveshwara Dhyana Nilayam Temple Thamaraipakkam – Worlds tallest shiva lingam temple #mahashivratri

Sarveshwara Dhyana Nilayam temple, situated at Tamaraipakkam, has a massive Shiva Lingam, which stands 90 ft from ground level. In fact it is one of the tallest Shiva Lingams in the world and is very unique. Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda meticulously planned and gave the blueprints of the unique model of Dhyana Nilayam with a huge 65 ft high Shivalinga-shaped dome, a spacious sprawling circular Satsang hall on the ground floor and the Dhyana Nilayam on the top-floor that was designed by M/s Vybogam Architects. Inside the temple is a rare Sphatika Lingam an ‘endless’ form in crystal, encrusted with a diamond studded crest, mounted on a special glass case. There is also a granite Lingam beside it. The consecration of both, the Sphatika Lingam and the granite Lingam were done on 15th October by Pujya Gurudev. Holy water from the eight holy rivers of our land was poured by Gurudev from a silver Shankha over the Sphatika Lingam. Abhishekam of the Sphatika Lingam is done annually on Mahashivarathri day, while daily puja including Abhishekam is performed on the small granite Lingam. The 65 ft high dome of the Lingam shaped hall reverberates resonantly as the mantras and shlokas are chanted. This is indeed an unforgettable experience for many devotees. Lord Sarveshwara is believed to take the avatar of Dhanavantri every Sunday. Hence, a free medical clinic is held every Sunday for the villagers of the neighbourhood.

சிதம்பரம் தில்லை நடராஜர் கோயில் | Chidambaram Natarajar Temple VLOG | Chidambaram Ragasiyam

கடலூர்: சிதம்பரத்தில் நடராஜர் ஆனந்த நடனம் ஆடிய இடத்தை சிற்றம்பலம் என்பார்கள். இதை சிற்சபை, சித்சபை என்றும் அழைப்பதுண்டு. இத்தலத்து பெருமானுக்கு சபாநாயகர், கூத்த பெருமான், நடராஜர், விடங்கர், மேருவிடங்கர், தெட்சிணமேருவிடங்கர், பொன்னம்பலம், திருச் சிற்றம்பலம் என்றெல்லாம் சிறப்புப் பெயர்கள் உண்டு. சிதம்பர ரகசியம் என்று கூறப்படும் பகுதியில் தங்கத்தால் ஆன வில்வத்தள மாலை தொங்கும் காட்சியைப் தரிசனம் செய்தால் முக்தி கிடைக்கும். இதைத்தான் பார்க்க முக்தி தரும் தில்லை என்கிறார்கள்.

சிதம்பரம் நடராஜர் ஆலயத்திற்கு ‘தில்லை வனம்’ என்றும் ஒரு பெயர் உண்டு. புலியூர், பூலோக கைலாசம், புண்டரீகபுரம், வியாக்கிரபுரம் முதலிய வேறு பெயர்களும் உண்டு. இத்தலம் தில்லை என்னும் மரங்கள் அடர்ந்த காடாக இருந்ததால் இப்பெயர் பெற்றது. தில்லை என்னும் மரங்கள் இப்பொழுது சிதம்பரத்தில் காணக் கிடைக்கவில்லை. சிதம்பரத்திற்கு கிழக்கில் உள்ள பிச்சாவரத்திற்கு அருகே அமைந்துள்ள உப்பங்கழியின் கரைகளில் இம்மரங்கள் மிகுதியாக இருக்கின்றன. பஞ்சபூத தலங்களில் சிதம்பரம் ஆகாயத்தலமாகக் அமைந்துள்ளது. சிதம்பரம் என்பதை பிரித்தால் சித்+அம்பரம் = சிதம்பரம். சித்-அறிவு. அம்பரம்- வெட்டவெளி. மனிதனே உன்னிடம் ஏதும் இல்லை என்பது தான் அந்த ரகசியத்தின் பொருள். நடராஜர் ஆலயத்திற்கு பொன்னம்பலம் என்ற பெயர் உள்ளது. பொன்+அம்பலம்= பொன்னம்பலம். அம்பலம் என்றால் சபை. பொன்னாலாகிய சபையில் நடராஜர் ஆனந்த தாண்டவம் ஆடுவதால் அவருக்கு பொன்னம்பலம் என்ற பெயர் ஏற்பட்டது.

சிதம்பர ரகசியம் பக்தி இலக்கியத்திலும், சங்க இலக்கியத்திலும் தில்லை சிவபெருமான் பற்றிய குறிப்புகள் காணப்படுகின்றன. நடராஜர் சந்நதிக்கு அருகில் சிதம்பர ரகசிய பீடம் அமைந்துள்ளது. சிற்சபையில் சபாநாயகரின் வலப்பக்கத்தில் உள்ளது ஒரு சிறிய வாயில். இதனுள்ளே திருவுருவம் ஏதும் இல்லை. பொன்னாலான வில்வ மாலை சாத்தப்பட்டு சிதம்பர ரகசிய காட்சி பக்தர்கள் பார்வைக்கு காண்பிக்கப்படுகிறது. பரிபூரணமான வெட்டவெளியே இதன் ரகசியமாகும். சிதம்பர ரகசிய பீடத்தின் வாயிலில் உள்ள திரை அகற்றப்பட்டு ஆரத்தி காட்டப் படும்போது, அங்கு சிலையோ வேறு காட்சிகளோ தென்படாது. தங்கத்தால் செய்யப்பட்ட வில்வ தளமாலை ஒன்று தொங்கும் காட்சி மட்டுமே தெரியும். இதனுள்ளே வேறு திருவுருவம் ஏதும் தோன்றாது.
