TRINADAD/TOBAGO, February 2010: Devout Hindus thronged mandirs and other places of worship in observance of Shiva Ratri on Carnival Friday night, Feb. 12 from sunset to Saturday sunrise. It is the night of the great awakening of Lord Shiva. Hindus keep vigil all night. Lord Shiva is manifested in all aspects of creation.

The 200-odd temples across the country held vigil, including Edinburgh Hindu Temple, Chaguanas Mandir, Longdenville Temple, Caparo Shiva Mandir, the Seva Sangh of Caparo, Felicity Hindu Mandir, Gasparillo Hindu Mandir, Blue Star

According to Pundit Seereeram Maharaj of the Shiva Kailash Hindu Temple and Ramayna Group, Caparo, “Lord Shiva is symbolic of Absolute Truth and Supreme Consciousness, and is recognized and respected as the benign, the merciful and perfection.” “In effect, the observance of Maha Shivaraatri is a reminder to mankind of the need for discipline in our lives,” Pundit Ramesh Tiwari, spiritual leader of the Edinburgh Hindu Temple, added.
