Festivals in India include the Scientific wisdom in four different fields of sciences. Climatology, Astronomy, Siddha Vaidyam / Ayur Vedam and Human Physiology. Human body is susceptible for the changes in the cyclical motions of the moon and sun. The impact of these changes are closely documented by the advanced researchers in the field of biofarming and organic farming. The ascent and descent of the moon have the impact on the growth of the plants and all cellular structures, including on the germination of the plants.
What is the simplest way of appeasing Lord Shiva?
Offering him Vilvam leaves.
Poojas, Mantras and Meditation during Maha Shivaratri are amplified by 10 million times.
All the flora and fauna will undergo hibernation during the Winter Time and will start new germination during the Spring Time. This transition time is the most important one for all species including humans. Festivals are celebrated to make them adapt for these transitions. Maheswara tatva belongs to the dissolution of this natural cycle so this Maha Shiva Rathiri is celebrated at the last day of the first month in the Late Winter, before the starting of Spring Time. Human body also undergoes very subtle cellular and molecular changes during this time. Most of the lung and respiratory infections are possible during this time. To avoid them, certain rules are prescribed in the form of celebration of the Maha Shiva Rathiri. We have to always remember that in Hinduism, the science is interspersed with the way of human life. Now we apply the tanning lotions and other skin rash medicines for ultra violet sun rays during these months. But these have their limitations, as these are reactive and invasive procedures of prevention of disease.
Never, ever miss to observe Shiva Rathiri especially Maha Shiva Rathiri
The non invasive prevention techniques are the gradual adjustment of the body’s physiology through these festivals.
According to Siddha Vaidyam, the Vilvam Leaves have a power full preventive medicine for all the Respiratory Diseases including the Cardiac Problems. The worshipping Shiva with these leaves means using them with hand and smelling the smell of these leaves. This involves the aroma therapy. According to the advanced research when moon goes to an angle between 840 to 1800 in it’s rotation around the earth there will be profound influence on the Brain, Digestive Organs, Kidneys, Reproductive Organs, and Spleen. Especially in the months when the sun heat is less in the peak of winter time ( which results due to the increased distance between the earth and the sun due to its longitudinal axis). This influences reaches peak on the 14 day of the moon’s descent in the peat of deep winter season which is Maha Shiva Rathiri day. So on this the Fasting is prescribed according to Siddha Vaidyam. This is intended to keep the body systems intact. The Shiva Lingams are made with the special granite stone which have a specific crystalline structure. This structure is found to have a specific property of resonating the cosmic vibrations. Water has a peculiar property of called colloidal property. This enhances the water molecules to change their bond angles when came in to contact with the cosmic resonance and to increase their energy which then becomes powerful medicine. The abhishekam of the Shiva Lingams is to do this complicated exercises for the benefit of the mankind.
All Temples build on the principles of Siddhatham Agamas in South India especially at Tamil Nadu are the Accumulators of the Cosmic energy and Geo Magnetic Energies for the disseminating them for the individuals who go to temples. Going to temples and staying in the night of Maha Shiva Rathiri involves the taking and assimilating the energy for the whole night so that the energy imbalances that occur during the transitional changes are corrected. The mantras used in the abhishekam or in the worship are definite energy states which produce a specified quantum of energy if recited. This energy is absorbed by the molecules of the body and they in turn radiate heightened infrared band of energies. These energies radiated are picked up by the Acu Pressure Points or Adharas which distribute the energy for all the systems of the body for the energy correction. That is the reason why the Rudra Namakam, Chamakam and Mahanyasam and other powerful Mantras are recited on this Maha Shiva Rathiri Day.
