People often fast on this day to get 'Moksha '.Especially unmarried girls and ladies to get Vishnu .
This day is celebrated to mark the union of our body,mind , intellect and soul towards the higher source like the way Lord Shiva got married to Him Raja 's daughter Parvati .To achieve him she had to do a lot of penance and observe austerities .Like wise we also should try to aheive him by regularly doing meditation ,chanting hymns and doing other etc....activities which is quiet difficult to do these day because of work -pressure , stress and other things .But during festivities we should at least try to do these things so that Lord will remember us forever otherwise he will forget us and we would be living like a animal .Having animistic qualities which shouldn't exist in us as we are thinking animals.
So this Shivaratri let us turn into a new leaf by chanting "OM NAMAH SHIVAYA"
