Mahashivratri Vrat Significance
The festival of Mahashivaratri is considered very important for the devotees of Shiva. Although monthly Shivratri is celebrated every month on the date of Krishna Chaturdashi, but on the day of Mahashivaratri, the married life of those who worship Shiva Shambhu and Mother Parvati remains trouble free. Mahashivaratri fast is considered best for wishing to get a suitable groom.
Just as Goddess Parvati did penance for years to get Shiva as her husband, in the same way it is said that with the effect of fasting on Mahashivratri, the wish of getting a life partner like Shiva is fulfilled. On the other hand, married women get the boon of unbroken good fortune. It is believed that on this day Lord Shiva appeared in the form of 12 world famous Jyotirlingas. Those who want to start the monthly Shivratri fast should take a pledge to fast from this day.
