Maha Shivaratri

Observed: Today, Feb. 24

This is a Hindu festival celebrated to honor the god Shiva. The day marks Shiva’s marriage to the goddess Parvati. Shivaratri is the night when Shiva performed Tandava Nritya, the dance of primordial creation, preservation and destruction. It is a most holy day of worship for Hindus. It is sometimes referred to as a “great convergence.”

Tips for supporting patient care: This is an important celebration in Hinduism, and patients may want to observe appropriate parts of the day. This could include offering bael leaves, chanting or making offerings. Fasting might not be advised depending on the medical condition.
