WHAT TO DO ON MAHASHIVRATRI?
Mahashivratri is the day to honor and celebrate Lord Shiva—honor life and celebrate existence. Most people spend the day of Maha Shivratri in prayer, meditation and celebration. Here is a list of what to do on Mahashivratri:
Chant Om Namah Shivaya
Attend Mahashivratri Puja or Rudra Puja
Worship the Shivalinga
1. Observe fasting on the day of Mahashivratri
Fasting detoxifies the body and curtails the restlessness of the mind. A mind that is not restless slips into meditation easily. Therefore, fasting on Mahashivratri serves to detoxify the body and aid meditation. It is recommended to fast with fruits or foods that are easily digestible.

2. Meditate on Mahashivratri
The position of the constellations on the night of Maha Shivratri is considered very auspicious for meditation. So, it is advisable for people to keep awake and meditate on Shivaratri.
In ancient times, people used to say, ‘If you cannot meditate every day, do so for at least one day in a year – on Shivratri day – keep awake and do meditation’.
Wake the Divinity that is deep within you
The Divinity is within you, let it wake up!
