According to the Hindu Mythology, demon and Gods decided to churn the ocean. While churning the ocean, many products came out. One of them was poison. Gods and demons were scared that it would ruin the whole world.  Shiva came and saved the world from the disastrous effects of a poison by drinking it. ParvatiParvati

holds his neck so that it didn't go down his throat. His neck turned blue due to the effect of the poison on his throat and is also known as Neela Kantha or The Blue Throated.  Since then people celebrate Shravana Shivratri

How to observe fast?

One day prior to Shravana Shivaratri fast, devotees eat their meal only once in the whole day. On Shivaratri day, after finishing morning rituals devotees promise in front of the idol of Shiva that they keep fast for the whole day and break it on the next day. During promise, devotees vouch for self-determination throughout the fasting period and seek blessing of Lord Shiva to complete their fast without any interference.

On Shivaratri day, devotees should take a bath for the second time in the evening before offering prayers to or visiting temple. Shiva Puja should be done during night and devotees should break the fast next day after taking a bath.
