Masa Shivaratri is the auspicious day to worship Lord Shiva. In February 2010, Masa Shivratri falls on Maha Shivaratri day which is the biggest festival dedicated to Lord Shiva. Masa Shivratri February 2010 or Maha Shivaratri 2010 date is February 12. Shivaratri 2010 corresponds to Falgun Krishna Chaudas in North Indian calendar, and Magha Shukla Chaturdashi in Marathi, Gujarati, Kannada and Telugu calendars.

Mahashivaratri 2010 is even more significant to worship the Lord as on this day Kumbha Sankranti or Kumbha Sankramana is celebrated. Special pujas are performed in Kashi Vishweshwara temple in Varanasi, Ujjain Mahakaleshwar Temple, Nashik Trayambakeshwar Temple, and many other Jyothirling temples in India.

During Mahashivaratri Brahmotsavam is organized in Srisailam Mallikarjuna Temple. Vemulawada Rajarajeshwara Swamy temple is also a best place to visit during Shivaratri festival. A three-day Jathara or fair is organized in Vemulawada during the festival.

Om Tryambhakam Yajamahe
Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam |
Urvarukamiva Bandhanan
Mrityor Mukshiya Maamritat ||

Meaning:
Om. We worship The Three-Eyed Lord Shiva who is fragrant and who increasingly nourishes the devotees. Worshipping him may we be liberated from death for the sake of immortality just as the ripe cucumber easily separates itself from the binding stalk.

Explanation:
The mantra is a prayer to Lord Shiva who is addressed as Sankara and Trayambaka. Sankara is sana (blessings) and Kara (the Giver). Trayambaka is the three eyed one (where the third eye signifies the giver of knowledge, which destroys ignorance and releases us from the cycle of death and rebirth).

Best Time to Chant
Chanting the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra with sincerity, faith and devotion in Bramha Muhurata is very beneficial. But one can also do Maha Mrityunjaya japa anytime in a pure environment with great benefit and discover the happiness that's already within.
