Saṅkalpa in this context means a solemn vow or determination to perform any ritual observance. The declaration of purpose and intent. For example, a declaration to perform chaturmāsa vrata which is for four months or a simple religious observance for a day or two. The śivarātri vrata refers to the religious observation of kṛṣṇa-pakṣa chaturdaśī tithi as a penance to invoke the grace of Lord Śiva for forgiveness of all sins. The Mahā Śivarātri vrata is observed once a year in Magha māsa whereas every month has a māsika śivarātri vrata falling on the kṛṣṇa chaturdaśī of every month. Sankalpa
Procedure You are required to observe a fast on the day of Mahā Śivarātri. The very detailed procedure is quite difficult to follow, for ordinary people and what is being advised is a simplified version or the bare-bones of what must be done. The moot point is that the entire day of Śivarātri is a day of penance for all that sins that cause rebirth cycles and one must atone for them else suffer rebirth and various hells in this life and after. This year Mahā Śivarātri is on Monday, 4th March, 2019 and fasting is to be done

Devaguru Bṛhaspati Center announces its new program titled “Mantra Śāstra Program”, hereinafter ‘MSP’ to be taught both online and through contact classes in the Himalayas over a period of a few years to attain higher levels of knowledge of Mantra Śāstra and its application in Vedic Remedial in Astrology.
The Mantra Śāstra course is to be taught in the tradition of Puri, India and includes learning the various tools and processes that go into the formation and working of mantra as used in Vedic remedies. Sādhanā (penance) is a compulsory part of the course and will include the worship of various Vedic deities including Gaṇeśa, Guru, Śiva, Sūrya, Viṣṇu and/or Devī.
We aim to study the ten variables – navagraha (and lagna) of jyotiṣa and remedies associated with them.
The study is restricted to devatā associated with the rāśi chakra. The devatā associated with the varga and other levels are not to be studied in this course unless they are specifically taught by Maharṣi Parāśara. This can be viewed as an extension of Parāśara Jyotiṣa Course and members of PJC are welcome to join.
MSP2 and MSP-3 are interlinked as the syllabus is very vast covering hundreds of sloka of the colossal Brhat Parasara Hora Shastra. In addition only those who have joined MSP-2 should consider joining MSP-3 after they have studied the video lessons. There are quite a number of video lessons and a few writeups. In future years (2024 onwards) we shall have mentors to guide participants on an annual basis. It is best to start in spring 15 Mar – 16 May. And it is best to join before that to read the material available in the website to avoid trailing behind the class.
