Har Har Mahadev!
रूह है तो शिव है
नहीं तो शव है …. @SpiritedBlogger
The Bliss of life is the soul which has shiv else it’s just a matter to put to fire !!!!!
Shiva is the gathering force! Shiva is the soul! Har Har Mahadev – means – Shiv is in every soul, every soul has GOD within! Do we know this? How many all you believe that Shiva is a GOD? Intrigued? I used to have this notion, until I read Shiva the Trilogy by Amish Tripathi …..Although it is long I have read the trilogy, still I’m embraced with the virtues and sequences portrayed by Amish in the book.
Here, my intentions are not to break the conception and faith of people who have a colossal love for -Lord Shiva, but today being MahaShivaratri, while doing my Puja in the morning realized to pen down some words for Shiva, to suffice my love for him since childhood.
The stories associated with Shiva the Lord has been fearless, epic and epitome of the dreadlock and archetypal era. Shiva was a human like any of us who loved his wife, who lived for his nation, who did all good for his community and who was fierce in all what he did. This takes me towards the path of few legendary stories about Shiva …..
Allow My God!
According to Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva is the Destroyer in the Holy Trinity, the others being Brahma the Creator and Vishnu the Preserver. Shiva has always captivated his followers by his inimitable manifestation and outer shell – The Trimurthi, the third eye, the ash smeared all over his body, the weed and the wilderness of life away from all the social pretenses – Puts him to be one of the most proverbial Lord …
According to the grapevine, there are some rumors and untold stories about the birth of Shiva..But some say ….Shiva is regarded as an amorphous, infinite, transcendent and ageless absolute Brahman and the primal Atman (soul, self) of the universe. Shiva has many munificent and frightening depictions in the holy books of Hinduism. In compassionate aspects, he is depicted as a preeminent Yogi who lives an abstinent life on Mount Kailash.
He is the ultimate lover as well as a householder for his Parvati (Sati) and a lovely father for his two children, Ganesha and Kartikeya. In his fierce facets he is often illustrated as slaying demons and taking the venom of the whole world to his neck, where it remained and since then he is known as Neelkanth. With so much about Shiva, he is also considered as the Yogi and the mediator who preached the message of being true to yourself and your soul.
I’m in love with Shiva since my childhood, no matter how much I write about him and talk about the untold stories which I heard from my grandparents and read in our mythological books, do not suffice the passion.
Thanks to Amish Tripathi, to bring out the whole new concept to understand Shiva more than a God with the Shiva Trilogy! The liberator, the savior, the dreadlock of evil…. Till infinity
By means of this blog, I wish everyone to divulge the soul within, applauding HAR HAR MAHADEV!
