EPIC channel has associated with Isha Foundation to telecast the highly followed, grand Mahashivratri celebrations live from the Isha Yoga Center in Coimbatore, on February 13, beginning 8.30 pm and airing till 6 am, the following day. 

Mahashivrati is one of the largest and most sacred festivals of India. The darkest night of the year, it is a celebration in honor of Adiyogi or Shiva, from whom the tradition of yoga originates. In yogic culture, it is believed to be beneficial to stay awake in a vertical position throughout the night with the planetary positions causing an upsurge of energy in humans.

Sadhguru, Founder, Isha Foundation, said, “Mahashivaratri is known as the great night of Shiva – The Adiyogi, because the planetary position is such that there is a natural upsurge of energies. Mahashivaratri is of great significance for all those who aspire for the Ultimate. May this night become an exuberant awakening for you.”

Aimed at preserving the uniqueness and diversity of the nation’s artistic traditions, the night will see star performances by popular music sensations Sonu Nigam, Daler Mehndi, Mohit Chauhan, and Sean Roldan & Friend along with Isha Foundation’s home-grown band, Sounds of Isha. Not stopping at this, the event’s key attractions also include a guided powerful midnight meditation along with a nightlong sathsang with Sadhguru which people can follow from the comfort of their homes.
