PM’s Maha Shivaratri Day message

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa wished all Hindus a blessed Maha Shivaratri Day and wished their hopes and aspirations are fulfilled.

In his Maha Shivaratri message, the Premier said, to lead pious and enriched lives, what is important is to absorb the spirituality to each other’s lives that is taught by different faiths. For Hindus who seek meaning to their lives, Maha Shivaratri was of extreme importance, he added.

“I take this opportunity to convey my heartfelt wishes to all Hindu devotees in Sri Lanka on the occasion of celebrating Maha Shivaratri Day today. As this day is dedicated to honour Lord Shiva, Hindus mark this day with much reverence and piety.

Hindus believe that while celebrating Maha Shivaratri Day, they will be able to overcome darkness and ignorance in their lives and in the world over. The day is observed by remembering Lord Shiva by chanting prayers, fasting, meditating on ethics and virtues such as honesty, non-injury to others, charity, forgiveness and finding the goodness of Shiva.

Hence, I take this opportunity to wish all Hindus here a blessed Maha Shivaratri Day and wish that all their hopes and aspirations are fulfilled,” the Premier stated.
