According to my calculation, maHa shiva rAtri is to be observed in North
America (the observation including fasting, and the all-night vigil and
contemplation in honour of Lord Shiva) on tuesday, February 24, 1998 and
not on wednesday February 25.

When all the desires that dwell in the heart fall away, then the mortal
becomes immortal, and attains Brahman even here.
