Science and spirituality form the foundation of the Vedic religion. The Vedantic Hindu philosophy brings out the expressions of divine principles and cosmic theories through mystical stories.
And the essence is percolated in socio cultural life through festivals, which are in resonance to nature.
If we look at The Hindu Trinity Gods,
The fourteenth day of every lunar month or the day before the new moon is known as Shivratri. Among all the twelve Shivratris in a year, Mahashivratri, the one that occurs in the lunar month of Phalgun (February/March) is of the most spiritual significance.
Astronomically on this night, the northern hemisphere of the planet is positioned in such a way that there is a natural upsurge of energy in a human being. This is a day when nature is pushing one towards one’s spiritual peak by splurge of energy.
To utilize this energies, Mahashivratri is celebrated night-long. When you are awake, your spine stays vertical paving way for upward flow of energies. So the festival is celebrated night-long to allow this natural upsurge of energies make their way upwards in your mind, body & soul.
Mahashivratri is very significant for spiritual aspirants and also for the ambitious in the world. Immediately after Mahashivaratri, almost like a miracle, the trees are full of flowers as if to announce that after winter, the fertility of the earth has been rejuvenated. And this is one of the reasons why the Shiv-Linga is worshipped throughout India as a symbol of fertility.
The appearance of Shiva has mystic spiritual meaning and significance.
6.Bhasma: Pure ash is known as bhasma. Shiva has applied bhasma (Holy ash) all over His body. It symbolizes austerity and detachment to the worldly material life.

You should always be aware of the fact that death can come any moment.
7.Rudraksha: Shiva adorns chains of rudraksha beads around his curls, on His head and around the neck, arms, wrists and waist. Rudraksha is a fruit which never gets destroyed. Rudraksha is a symbol of our soul which is never destroyed.
