Lord Shiva is considered to be the lord of Chaturdashi Tithi and therefore, every month, the festival of Masik Shivaratri is celebrated on the same Tithi in Krishna Paksha. This Tithi is considered to be highly auspicious in the domain of astrology. During Mahashivaratri, the Sun is already in Uttarayana and the season changes. In this pretext, as per astrology, the Moon enters its debilitated state on Chaturdashi Tithi. As we all know that Lord Shiva bears the Moon on his forehead and therefore, worshipping him leads to strengthen the position of the Moon in one’s life and their willpower becomes strong.

In this context, he got exhausted because of hunger and thirst and came to the banks of a pond and found a tree of Bilva and under it, Shivlinga was present. When Nishadraj started breaking Bilva Patra to give rest to his body, then some leaves fell on Shivling. After this, when he took water to clean his feet from the pond, some drops of it also fell on Shivling. Further, he bowed down to lift the bow, he unknowingly bowed in front of Shivalinga.
