On Sivaratri, the Night of Miracles, (March 5th in US; March 6th in India), Dattatreya Siva Baba (Datta) has organized a special Sivaratri Abishekam Project to increase spiritual blessings to the world. Thousands of neglected and abandoned Siva lingas in South India receive abishekam by teams of priests organized under the auspices of Datta and with the help of Astroved Services, a Vedic astrology company in Chennai, India,( http://www.Astroved.com ).
There are tens of thousands of Siva lingas in temples in South India that have not undergone abishekam for lack of funds. These temples are located in remote places, rural areas, and in major cities. Under the guidance of Datta, Astroved Services will identify these temples and perform abishekam on this day, with the help of a crew of priests. The temple deities will be given abishekam clothes, rudraksha beads, bilva leaves and food offerings. It is quiet a sizeable task that Astroved Services will be coordinating this year.
On March 5, 2008, Dattatreya Siva Baba will lead a special Sivaratri Abishekam Project to increase spiritual blessing to the world. Thousands of neglected and abandoned siva lingas in south India will be rejuvenated with Abishekam by teams of priests organized by Astroved Services, a Vedic Astrology company in South India.
According to Vedic tradition, Sivaratri is the auspicious time for every soul to get into the primordial consciousness of non-existence or Nirvana. Traditionally, one is required to keep vigil during the night in order to receive grace and assistance. In India, one of the most holy nights in Vedic traditions is Maha Sivaratri, The Great Night of Siva. Maha Sivaratri occurs once yearly on the eve of the New Moon when the Sun enters the sign of Aquarius. This year Maha Sivaratri occurs on March 5th in the U.S. and March 6th in India. According to Astroved Services, it is on this night that Lord Siva grants a moratorium on karma for those who request it of him. In Vedic astrology Siva primarily controls the planet Saturn who rules karma, as well as the Sun and Jupiter ( http://www.astroved.com ).
Datta holds close to his heart the revival of India’s heritage-rich, materially-poor temples.
Funding for this project has come primarily from Westerners who have taken a profound interest in India’s spiritually rich heritage. “India’s ancient wisdom is now being discovered and adopted by Westerners in greater and greater numbers. Over the last several years we’ve seen over a 300% increase in Western interest in Vedic astrology and the exploration of the wisdom that is unique to India,” said Sonja Benkovich,“ Director of Astroved Services ( http://www.Astroved.com ). Datta will also be transmitting healing energy to thousands of people in a free worldwide teleconference call on March 5, 2008, live on the Night of Miracles; see news video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCRYzVpQVnE ”Nobody should suffer. Everyone should have a break. That is my prayer during the upcoming Sivaratri night. I welcome all of you to participate in the call" said Datta in his news video.
