The Great Night Of Shiva

Spiritual Celebration

On the fourteenth of Phalguna something takes place
On the earth. There’s an upsurge in its energy.
Every life form experiences this increase
In life force. It’s a time when there’s a huge release
Of the stressful effects of personality.
On this night the magic of Shiva we embrace.

So what’s Shiva? It’s ultimate reality…
Also a personal God as well as one who
Is present behind all that the self can perceive.
On The Great Night Of Shiva one wants to achieve
The consciousness of Shiva supreme in its view
Of creation. From the third eye we want to see.

Of all creatures on earth our spines are vertical.
Through the night of Shiva people keep them that way.
They remain awake because they want to transcend
Normal everyday consciousness so they will spend
The whole time staying upright. Attention they pay
To the energy palpable and supernal.

One tremendous cosmic existential aspect
Of this great night is it’s an opportunity
To engage and encounter the experience
Of the consciousness of Shiva. It’s quite intense.
Overcoming the darkness of the mind is the
Purpose of celebrating this urge to connect.
