At the beginning of creation, Five-Faced Lord Brahma once came to Lord Srimannarayana. By that time, he was in deep yogic sleep. Then Brahma turned egoistic and said “Narayan! When I who is the creator at all, came to you all the way from my place, you ignored my presence and failed to respect me aim the source of all the worlds.

At least open your eyes now and get up to receive me. If you fail to receive a guest properly you will have to repent. “Then Srimannarayna Sarcastically said O four-faced Lord! May the best of things come your way”? Short while later they entered into heated exchanges over the issue of superiority. Lord Sankara who witnessed the wrong turn of things, thought of subduing their pride and shot up as a ‘fire post’ higher than the sky tearing up the earth from underneath. Dumbstruck by the unusual appearance of the ‘fire post’ Lord Brahma flew to the sky in the form of swan while Lord Vishnu turned into a boar and went into the nether world to ascertain its tip and the root. Having failed to ascertain the beginning and end of the fire post they returned dejected. Realising that it must be Maya (illusion) which was an eye 0opener created by lord eswara to cut them to size, they extolled the gloried of eswara seeking his grace. Then the most benevolent Sankara withdrew his terrific form and appeared as the star ‘Arudra”. Sivaratiris are of four kinds. They are Nitya Sivarathri, Maasa Sivarathri, Yogika Sivarathri and Mahasivaratri. A Devotee who is ever steadfast in the worship of Lord Sankara at all times and climes are considered as observing “Nitya Sivaratri”. Masasivarathri is the day that precedes Amavasya tithi i.e. Chaturthi on the dark fortnight day of every month. The day on which Monday coincides with Amavasya is Yogic Sivaratri. Maha Sivaratri falls on Chatudasi day of the dark fortnight in the traditional month magha.”
