Lord Shiva can do everything. On Maha Shivatrari, this is your day to ask the Lord of Everything for a boon of assistance to Manifest Your Desires.
Lord Shiva is the representation of primordial energy from which everything was born and to which everything in the universe will disintegrate into. If there is a special time when we can remedy even the bad karmas and gain extraordinary boons for wealth, health and power, it can only be the 'Shivaratri'.
It is a special night when Goddess Parvati performs special poojas for Lord Shiva so as to get benefits for mankind.
Every year during Maha Shivaratri, Lord Shiva incarnates everywhere in the form of the Shiva Lingam, his sacred symbol. Shiva Lingam is symbolic of the creative power of the universe that denotes that God does not have any definite form.
