KOHIMA, Mar 7: Governor of Nagaland & Assam, P.B Acharya has extended his greetings to the people of Nagaland on the occasion of Maha Shivratri. Maha Shivratri is celebrated in Bharat every year with profound devotion.
A release from the Raj Bhavan stated that among all the festivals, Shivratri seems to be the only one that symbolizes the reincarnation of the incorporeal, God Shiva. Shivratri is commemorative of God’s descent on earth to remove darkness of ignorance, vices and violence; this is why His descent is linked with ’night’. The period of ’night’ definitely refers to the ending decades of the Iron Age, where irreligiousness, unrighteousness, violence, sorrow and suffering reign all over the world. God, being the World Benefactor and Purifier of the Sinful, grants all souls liberation from sufferings and guides humanity on the path to Jeevan Mukti (liberation -in-life).
Today, when corruption, unrighteousness and immorality have spread all over the world, when ethical and moral values have declined drastically, Supreme Soul Shiva is once again imparting the Godly message of Be Yogi and Be Pure, the release added. He further requested all to celebrate “Shivratri” festival in its true spirit by understanding the actual meaning and significance and take complete benefit from this most auspicious time and fill our aprons with powerful blessings of the Bholanath.
