Lord Mahadev or Shiva represents goodness, benevolence and serves as the Protector. He is also associated with Time, and particularly as the destroyer of all things.
Shiv Rathri is a major festival in Hinduism, this festival is solemn and marks a remembrance of “overcoming darkness and ignorance” in life and the world. It is observed by remembering Shiva and chanting prayers, fasting, and meditating on ethics and virtues such as self-restraint, honesty, non-injury to others, forgiveness, and the discovery of Shiva. The ardent devotees keep awake all night. Others visit one of the Shiva temples or go on pilgrimage to jyotirlingams.
