Maha Shivaratri 2024 Celebration

During Amma's 2016 Shivaratri message, she said, "Shivaratri is a celebration of sacrifice, dispassion and renunciation. Shivaratri teaches us to abandon all other thoughts in contemplation of God, and to realize the ultimate purpose of human life." This year, MA Center Chicago held an all-night Shivaratri program on Friday, March 8, 2024 which included a virtual Shivaratri talk by Swamini Ambikamrita Prana, a Shiva puja, chanting, bhajans, meditation and more. See more photos here >>
