 Story of Mahashivratri 

                                     Once upon a time! That a man named Chitrabhanu lived. He used to hunt in the forests to feed his family. He was a hunter. But a businessman used to ask for money from him. He had taken money with that businessman. One day the merchant came and took Chitrabhanu. Chitrabhanu was kidnapped by a businessman. The day the merchant took Chitrabhanu. It was Shivratri that day. So he listened to the story of hungry stomach in the morning. And similarly after a while when the merchant came to give my money. So Chitrabhanu said, give me some time. I will launder your money after that the merchant left Chitrabhanu. After this Chitrabhanu walked towards the forests. To hunt, while he was walking towards the forests. 
                                         He was feeling very hungry and thirsty. Because he did not eat food. Because he was with the businessman. So then slowly evening began. So he saw a tree. He cut the tenia to make his stay on that tree and started making arrangements for his stay on that tree. The tree was of a vine. And he was near the pond. There was a Lord Shiva lingam under that tree. Which was under the vine leaves. Chitrabhanu was cutting twigs on the tree. So the vine leaves were also falling on the Shivling. And it was also worshiped together. After an hour passed, a deer came to drink water near the pond, and Chitrabhanu took out his bow and started aiming. When Dhanush was aiming through the leaves. So the deer said that I am pregnant. 
                                                  You will know not one but two and you will be a partaker of sin. Hearing this, Chitrabhanu let the deer go to his family. So Chitrabhanu took his bow inside. While inside, a few vine rows fell on the lingam. And it was worshiped for 1 hour. After this, after 1 hour another deer came to drink water on the pond. So Chitrabhanu took a bow and started aiming. Then the deer said to let me go, I come to my husband. My husband is waiting for me. And I will meet them and come back to you and then you kill me. Then Chitrabhanu took his bow back. While falling back, the leaves of the vine fell on the Shivling, similarly in the second hour, Shivling worship was done. After this, the third deer came to the pond with his children to drink water after 1 hour. Then Chitrabhanu again took out the bow. And started aiming. So I told the deer that do not let me go, do not kill me first, put my children near my husband and then kill me. Similarly Chitrabhanu retracted his bow for the third time. And while retreating, the leaves of the vine fell on the Shivling again. Similarly, Shivling was worshiped for the third time. After some time, the husband of the three deer was passing by the pond. So Chitrabhanu took out his bow and started aiming. So he said that let me meet my three wives once.
                                                After this I will come to you together with my wives myself. Give me life now is my promise. That I will definitely come back. Then he goes. And after some time the trio comes back with wives. But Chitrabhanu leaves everyone. Because he would know that he was doing wrong. After this he goes back. For this reason, it was also fasted and worshiped. And he stayed awake all night and also completed Jagran. After his death, he was taking it to Yamlok. So in the middle Shiva takes it with Shivlok. And it attains salvation. We get education here from this story. If Lord Shiva ji also considers worship performed inadvertently. Then there is definitely the fruit of worship done with love.
