    Shivratri is the time when Lord Shiva takes rest for one prahar(3hours)and goes in a meditative mode,this is the time when 'sattva' waves of knowledge, 'raja' waves of devotion and 'tama' waves of Renunciation (Vairagya) are emitted by the 'Shivpindi'.his disciples gain the most knowledge and blessings during this period.
