India's only Hindi-language India-centric infotainment channel is set to offer its viewers a unique, spiritual experience on the night of Mahashivratri this year. EPIC channel has associated with Isha Foundation to telecast the highly followed, grand Mahashivratri celebrations LIVE from the Isha Yoga Center in Coimbatore, on February 13, beginning 8.30 pm and airing till 6 am, the following day.
Mahashivrati is one of the largest and most sacred festivals of India. The darkest night of the year, it is a celebration in honor of Adiyogi or Shiva, from whom the tradition of yoga originates. In yogic culture, it is believed to be beneficial to stay awake in a vertical position throughout the night with the planetary positions causing an upsurge of energy in humans.
Sadhguru, Founder, Isha Foundation, said, "Mahashivaratri is known as the great night of Shiva - The Adiyogi, because the planetary position is such that there is a natural upsurge of energies. Mahashivaratri is of great significance for all those who aspire for the Ultimate. May this night become an exuberant awakening for you."
Speaking about the LIVE telecast, Aditya Pittie, Managing Director - EPIC TV said, "This is truly going to be a special night of spirituality and wellbeing. We're excited to associate with Isha Foundation and bring this extravaganza LIVE for the benefit of our viewers who can enjoy the celebrations from their homes. It is the first LIVE showcase on EPIC and we are glad to begin our journey in this direction with Isha Foundation's Mahashivratri event."
Aimed at preserving the uniqueness and diversity of the nation's artistic traditions, the night will see star performances by popular music sensations Sonu Nigam, Daler Mehndi, Mohit Chauhan, and Sean Roldan & Friend along with Isha Foundation's home-grown band, Sounds of Isha. Not stopping at this, the event's key attractions also include a guided powerful midnight meditation along with a nightlong Sathsang with Sadhguru which people can follow from the comfort of their homes.
