About this Course

Maha Śivaratri (“Great Night of Śiva”) is a Hindu festival celebrated annually in honor of Lord Śiva. It is the most important festival of the year for devotees of the Hindua god Śiva. The name of the festival refers to the night when Śiva performs the heavenly dance.

In this workshop you will learn Śiva-mantrāha which describes his many names and attributes. The chant is derived from the Taittirīya-samhitā, and will be taught in four ghanams or patterns: samhitā, krama, jatā, and ghana.

Each course provides review the six rules of grammar in Vedic chanting set out in the Tattiriya Upanishad: pronunciation, letters or vowels and consonants (varna), pronunciation (svara), duration or unit of length of sound (mātrā), force or strength (balam), continuity (sāma), and combination of two words that blend together (santānah).
