Lord Shiva and Pralaya

The whole world was facing destruction. Goddess Parvati worshipped her husband Shiva to save the world. She prayed that the living souls during the long period of pralaya should become alive again if they worshipped Him just as she did. Her prayer was granted. Parvati named the night for the worship of Ishwar by mortals Maha-Shivaratri, or the great night of Shiva.
