Significance of Worshiping Lord Shiva Statue on Mahashivratri

Maha Shivratri is a day when Lord Shiva, the Destroyer of Evil, is worshiped. This festival is celebrated in various parts of India by performing aarti and pujas, fasting, and listening to religious discourses. It falls on two days during February or March every year; based on the moon cycle, it may fall anytime between these two dates every year, depending on when a full moon occurs in your area. The significance of worshiping the Lord Shiva brass murti on this day is that it brings relief from troubles and sufferings and blesses the worshippers with peace and prosperity.

 The Meaning of Maha Shivratri is ‘The Great Night of Shiva

Maha Shivaratri is a Hindu festival dedicated to the worship of Lord Shiva. According to the Hindu calendar, it is observed on the 13th night/14th day in the Krishna Paksha (waning moon) of the month Phalguna (February–March). In this festival, we perform special poojas and pray at Lord Shiva's temple or any other place where we feel peace and tranquility.

Worshipping Lord Shiva brass murti on this day brings relief from troubles and sufferings and blesses the worshipers with peace and prosperity. You can worship Lord Shiva during this festival by offering water, flowers, or other items. The day is celebrated to please Lord Shiva, who is considered as God of Destruction (Shiva), Creator (Brahma), and protector (Vishnu).

The worship rituals performed by Hindus include bathing in holy rivers or ponds such as the Ganges River or Yamuna River, taking holy dips in the Ganges River, and chanting Vedic hymns dedicated to Lord Shiva.

Based on the Moon's Cycle, Shivratri Falls Every Year in February or March

The festival is celebrated on the 13th night/14th day of the Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) of Phalguna (February-March).

The significance of Maha Shivratri includes abstaining from meat, fish, and eggs during this period. It is also believed that after performing pooja at home, one should go to a holy place like a temple or mosque to pray and chant mantras to Lord Shiva.

Lord Shiva is one of the most worshipped Hindu Gods. He is also known as Mahadev or "Great God," and his name means "The Great God" in Sanskrit. He is considered one of Lord Vishnu's primary forms, along with Parvati (his wife) and Ganesha (his son). All three deities are often called "the Trinity" by Hindus because they have similar qualities and characteristics.

In addition to being worshiped by many people around the world as well as India itself, Lord Shiva idol has been depicted on many objects, such as sculptures made out of bronze or stone instead, since these materials weren't available at that time! Nowadays, though, there are still plenty who prefer using something else instead, like brass statues like this one here today, which you can buy online today if you want to :)
