Asian Scene, The Star- Maha Shivratri at Lohana Mahajan Mandal, 12th March

12 Mar

Currently the story of Lord Shiva is most popular on an Indian Television series known as “Mahadev” and it goes on to explain his life, purpose and history. Thus the celebration of “Maha Shivratri” became bigger when devotees of Lord Shiva gathered at the Lohana Mahajan Mandal, Nairobi on Sunday 10th March to celebrate “Maha Shivratri” in the honor of Lord Shiva.

As the Pandit Miteshbhai Mehta recited the prayer, ladies lined up to pay tribute to the Shiv Linga by pouring milk bestowing betel leaves and offering fruits. Thereafter followed a recital of prayer known as the “aarti” where the devotees all joined in and sang together. Chairperson Sonal Gadhia, Lohana Mahila Mandal organized for five children to recite a poem and explain in simple words the great works and the huge personality that remains close to millions around the world as Lord Shiva is considered the “destroyer or transformer” from the Hindu trinity that includes Lord Brahma– the “creator” and Lord Vishnu– the “preserver”. This activity was another way of encouraging children to participate and learn more about their religion, and you could see from the attendance many had brought their children too.

    The high light of the Mahashivratri function was due to courtesy of Sita Ram Mandal which provided explicit music, which was highly appreciated. Sit Ram Mandal also donated Ksh.25,000 to the Lohana Ladies Circle.
