    Hi,

    On Sivaratri, most of the Shiva temples do Mahanyasa Parayanam. What is it? What is the significance of it? I tried googling, but could not get enough details. Can someone throw some light on it?

    Thanks
    Nirmala

    Hi Nirmala

    The Mahanyasam, meaning the great nyasa (purification) is recited to purify the body, mind and soul of all the impurities. Normally it is recited before performing the Rudrabhishekam of Lord Shiva.
    Look this file "Foreword to Mahanyasam" (its a nice commentery on what is mahanyasam why we do it) ::RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting
