Mahashivaratri, the great night of Lord Shiva, is celebrated every year on the eve of the moonless night in the month of Falgun. Thousands of Hindu devotees are observed at Pasupatinath on this night. Activities of Sadhus and widely available Bhang on this night have been another major reason for many, specially youngsters, to visit Pasupatinath.

There are several versions of beliefs related to the celebration of this auspicious night. It is believed that Lord Shiva was married to Parvati on this day and performed the ‘Tandava’. Some people believe this was the night when Lord Shiva ‘created himself’ by his divine grace and others believe that this night was the choice of Shiva as the favorite night when asked by Parvati.

  1. Kurye olarak hizmet veren kişiler, bulundukları lokasyondaki her adrese en kısa sürede ulaşma yolunu bilirler. Üstelik verilen bu görevi hava, trafik ve buna benzer diğer olumsuz şartlardan etkilenmeden yerine getirirler. Yani iş hayatı başta olmak üzere hayatın hemen her alanında önemli görevleri üstlenebilir ve başarıyla yerine getirebilirler. Özellikle büyük şehirlerdeki trafik kaosu ve adres konusundaki karmaşa göze alınırsa, kurye hizmetlerinden faydalanmanın bazı durumlarda zorunlu hale geleceği anlaşılabilir. Örneğin İstanbul’un bir noktasından diğer bir noktasına acil şekilde önemli bir evrak ulaştırmak gerektiğinde ya da hastanızın ihtiyacı olan ilacı acil ve güvenli bir şekilde ulaştırmak gerektiğinde, İstanbul moto kurye hizmetimizden faydalanarak sorununuza çözüm üretebilirsiniz.

  5. Sorry DreamSky, have no strong evidences. Its that I personally have found these evidence in the form of “word of mouth” from my Late Granfather (maternal), who had a strong hold in Vedas, and Manuscripts related to Hinduism.
