Maha Shivaratri - Kirtan and Puja

  • The Hive 205 NW Franklin Ave Bend United States (map)

Maha Shivaratri (the great night of Shiva), is one of the major yearly festivals in India. It is a celebration of overcoming darkness and ignorance, a night where we affirm our aspirations and commitment to our spiritual path.

Please join us Monday, March 4, at The Hive for an evening of kirtan, ritual and celebration. We will invoke the supreme power of Shiva with chanting, yogic exercises, and a simple puja ritual, or abhishek, which symbolizes the purification of the soul. It is traditional to fast during the day and stay up all night, and although we may not make it all night long, we will follow the energy that shows up to its natural completion!

In the parking lot, at 7pm, Katie Pinto LeBrun and High Desert Fire & Flow will honor Shiva as Nataraja, King of the Dance, by spinning real fire!

We will begin inside at 7:30pm.

Please feel free to come for all or part of the festivities.

$10 suggested donation, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Malas encouraged: We will do a mala round at some point in the evening, so wear your malas:-)

This is a public event - please feel free to invite others.
