SIVARATRI

A hunter went to a forest in search of game. He could not catch any game throughout the day. So he had to go without food. Night fell. He climbed up a tree to sleep for the night.  He could not sleep.

So he plucked the leaves of the tree one by one. He dropped them down to pass the time. That day was Sivaratri. The tree was a Bilva tree. Down below was a Siva-Linga. Those leaves fell on it. God Siva loves all these three: keeping awake
on Sivaratri, fasting, and worship of Siva - Linga with Bilva leaves.
