In Hinduism, the festival of Mahashivaratri is celebrated with great pomp. By offering Mahadev’s Abhishek and his favorite things on this day, one gets rid of many problems in life. Virgin girls do special worship of Mahadev on this day for their desired groom.
Do these things to please Lord Shiva:
# On this day in the morning, one should take bath and worship Mahadev at home or in the temple. Om Namah: While chanting Shivaay, do Abhishek on Shivling with water and milk.
# Always observe Satyacharan, moderate behavior and soft language while fasting on the day of Mahashivaratri. Praise Shankar ji at night or in homes collectively.
# Rudrabhishek, Maha Rudrabhishek, Chant Mahamrityunjaya and do Bhajan-Kirtan. Night awakening is also done on this day. The next day fasting.
