Aum Namah Sivaya
This evening is Mahasivaratri. The monastery is full of activity as preparations are made for Siva's great and blissful night. We observe tonight both as a discipline and a festivity, keeping a strict fast and all-night vigil, meditating, intoning Siva's 1,008 names, singing His praise, chanting Sri Rudram and bathing the Sivalinga.
You don't want to see God. You must feel God. God is you. Just be that. Satguru Siva Yogaswami
As long as there is searching, Parasiva has not been found, for searching is two, while It is one. Gurudeva
All this universe is in the glory of God, of Siva, the God of love. The heads and faces of men are His own, and He is in the hearts of all. Krishna Yajur Veda, Svetasvatara Upanishad 3.11
