Greatness of Maha Shivratri
Once a very poor Bhil; Gurudruha was unable to hunt any animal for food to feed his family. He sanf (Bilva Patra) tree nearby with the motive of hunting down an animal which may come to quench its thirst.
Coincidentally this was the auspicious day of Shivaratri and he was unaware of a Shivlinga established under that tree. After the first three hours of the night passed, he saw a female deer arriving with her fawns. In getting ready to aim at his prey the sudden movements made some bel-leaves fall on the Shivalinga along with some drops of water from his water vessel. Thus, in this way Gurudruha unwittingly accomplished the worship of Shiva in this time.
