Q: Is there any significance of not sleeping the whole night? How long should we stay awake?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: No, don’t strain yourself. Be natural.
Q: Why is Mahashivratri called as Mahashivratri (night of Shiva) and not Mahashivadiwas (day of Shiva)?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Yes, I have spoken about it. Read the book. Raatri means that which gives you comfort, gives you rest; from what? That which gives us rest from the three Taapa (miseries) is Raatri: Aadi bhautika (Physical), Aadhyaatmika (Spiritual) and Aadi Daivika (Ethereal). Taapayitra refers to problem/suffering; that time which takes us from misery towards relief is known as Raatri.
