21st Feb 2020 ~> Before the New Pisces Moon 22nd/23rd and 'Losar', Himalayan New Year 2147
Today, Feb 21st, is also MahaShivratri, the Vedic festival honouring Shiva, Lord of creation and destruction as he partakes the cosmic dance of life, death and rebirth (symbolised by the passage from Dark to a New Shiva Moon); wedding his beloved consort Parvarti to create a sacred union of male and female, Shiva-Shakti.
Fasting and calling upon the all-powerful Shiva to protect from the poison encountered when churning up the great Ocean (of Samsara), Shiva can save one from ignorance and desire. This great Hindu Lord also permeates Tibetan Buddhism in influence, in the form of Tantric Dharma protector Mahakala – and others. Indeed, Mount Kailash is shared by Shaivites and Buddhists alike as being the source of all spiritual power, ‘Crown Chakra of the World’, as well as source of India’s great rivers, Kailash is considered to be the home of Shiva, as well as Heruka Chakrasamvara.
