ABOUT SHIVA
Shiva (शिव) is lord of the
lords and it is really not
easy to write/explain
everything about shiva.
However many have tried
to explain him and praised
him as per their
knowledge but the
explanation is endless and
it is un-imaginable from a
human being even devas,
asuras and other rishi
munis have very little
words to explain about
the lord almighty.
Shiva means the supreme
one, the auspicious one,
the pure one and for me
the beloved one. Shiva is
named as Pashupati
which means the Lord of
all living beings either it is
humans, devas, asuras or
any creatures. Another
name Mahadeva depicts
the great God, supreme in
all devas(Gods).
The God staying in a state
blissful, enjoying in Its
Own Self eternally,
without any flaws is the
Supreme Lord shiva. The
Perfection is the
completeness - there is
nothing external that is
required to make the Self
blissful.
Lord Shiva is reckoned
among the Tridevas
(trimity). Brahma is the
creator, Lord Vishnu is the
preserver and Lord Shiva
is the destroyer. Shiva is
the lord of Shakti also.
Lord shiva is absolute
which does not have any
parents which never
takes birth Which is all
alone without association
with any of the creatures
or creations enjoying in
the Self. God is the only
one who is dependable
for anybody / anything to
surrender to as It is the
only perennial Being.
Hence God is the Lord of
all creatures (lives/souls).
For this reason the Lord is
hailed as pashupati (Lord
of living beings). Whether
it is devas or asuras or
humans or other
creatures all are pashus.
That being the case how
could the Lord be partial
to one section of pashus
and withdrawing the
Grace for the other ? So
anybody who worships
the Lord sincerely could
get blessed with Its Grace
irrespective of the caste,
creed, race, power, status
and qualities.
It is in fact to be noted that
Lord shiva is worshipped
by the devas like viShNu,
braHma, indra, by asuras
like bANa, rAvaNa, tripura,
sUrapadma, by humans
like sha~Nkara
bhagavatpAda,
samban^dhar, appar, by
other creatures like
jaTAyu, sampAdi (eagles),
vAli (monkey) and the list
goes on and on. One
finds in the purANas the
variety of people of
different backgrounds and
qualities worship the Lord
shiva. There are many
histories of temples which
talk of the cranes, bees,
elephants, spiders, snakes
worshipping the Lord and
getting blessed. So the
Lord as the Supreme
blesses anyone who
worships in sincere
devotion. There is no
discrimination on who the
seeker is. The Lord is so
merciful that He showers
the boons one look for
when there is a
determination to seek
Him. It is evident from the
history of asura bANa
who attained a great fame
of his valor and got the
place in the abode of Lord
shiva all due to his
determined worship of
the Lord.
Lord shiva is the God of
all. Like the mother He
showers the grace for all
the children, but the
misusing children get
punished. This Supreme
Lord better than a mother
does not withhold the
grace, He is our beloved
pashupati.
The God would not be
biased. It would not
differentiate between one
group versus the other,
whether it be divines or
daemons or humans or
plats or creatures or on
sex or on race etc. All that
matters is dharma and the
pure devotion towards It.
No doubt this lovely Lord
shiva is worshipped alike
by divines, daemons,
scholars, not much learnt
simple, and the other
creatures.

Shiva is usually
worshipped as the Shiva
lingam.

Meaning : That Lord Shiva
who has on his left side
Mother Parvati, who has
Ganges and moon on his
forehead, who has poison
in the throat and cobras
on the chest, such an
omnipresent greater than
the gods, Lord Shiva may
protect me.
Now, let us consider this
scriptural form of Lord
Shiva, with scientific view
and see what does God
want to preach the
common people.
WHY JAGDAMBA
PARVATI IS PRESENT
ON THE LEFT SIDE OF
SHIVA
Jagdamba Parvati is the
form of power. Lord
Shiva always keeps her
on to his left side,
because, he himself
remains in a state of
Tapasya (meditation).
People and scriptures too,
assume that the left part
of the males is
inauspicious and trouble-
causing. Where as Parvati
is the form of power and
thus always auspicious.
Hence, in order to destroy
all the inauspiciousness
and obstacles, Lord Shiva
keeps Parvati on his left
side. Besides, Lord Shiva
is himself a form of
inauspiciousness as :
AMANGALYAM
SHEELAM
TAVABHAVATU
NAMAIVAMAKHILAM |
TATHAPI
SMARTRINAMA
VARADA PARAMAM
MANGAMASI ||
Meaning : It is famous in
the whole world that Lord
Shiva is inauspicious, but
a giver of all kinds of
auspiciousness.
Nevertheless, He is the
giver of all kinds of
auspiciousness for those
who remember him. This
virtue is because of
Parvatis presence with
him.
Thus acting on the
principle :
NARYASTU YATRA
PUJYANTE RAMANTE
TATRA DEVATAH
That is where the
womanfolk is
worshipped, the gods
stays there, Lord Shiva
preaches the same to his
devotees, that if they
respecta woman, all the
inauspiciousness all the
hurdles, would be
removed automatically.
WHY MOTHER GANGA
ON THE HEAD
The Ganges, the most
sacred river in India,
shows coolness, holiness
and serenity. Lord Shiva
holds her on his head,
thus preaching the
devotees that if they bear
coolness, holiness and
serenity in their head i.e. if
they give up anger, envy
and disturbance that
haunts their mind they
will achieve all kinds of
perfections and
successes.
WHY THE NEW MOON
ON THE FOREHEAD
(चन्द्रशेखर)
The moon is shinning but
cool celestial body. Lord
Shiva wears it on his
forehead, thus preaching
for peaceful mind and
forsightedness. If decision
is taken with cool peaceful
mind and far sightedness,
all the tasks will be
completed successfully
and an increment occurs
in one's honour.
MEANING OF POISON
IN THE THROAT
(नीलकण्ठ)
When the Gods and
Demons unitedly churned
the sea, it was the poison
that came out first. Seeing
the lethal poison, both the
gods and the demons got
nervous and reached to
Lord Shiva and prayed
him to hold it. Lord
Ashutosh (Shiva) agreed
to their prayers and
swallowed the deadly
poison. That poison,
however, did not reach
God's stomach, instead it
stuck in the throat turning
it blue.
Thus, holding the poison
in the neck, Lord Shiva
preaches that one should
not contain poison in his
belly for the other. It also
means that one should
not even wish ill for the
others, leave apart doing.
Speaking harsh words is
however other thing, but
one should not cultivate
the feelings of envy and
enemity for the others.
WHY IS THE SNAKE ON
THE CHEST?
It is very strange that
people are usually scared
of snakes because these
are poisonous creatures.
In scriptures and in
practical life, snake is
given a name Kaala i.e. the
death. But Lord Shiva
bears snakes on his chest.
Thus he preaches the
people that if they do not
engage their mind and
intellect in the worship of
God, death is always
facing them. If you keep
your mind and intellect
busy in prayers and
worship, even death can
do no harm to you.
Instead it would become a
means to adorn you.
The reason of having a
snake around his chest is
that, VISHASYAA
VISHAMAUSHDHAMA,
i.e. the best antidote for
poison is poison itself.
Hence to cancel the effect
of the poison Lord Shiva
has worn poisonous
snakes around his
shoulders.
WHY IS THE OX THE
VEHICLE OF LORD
SHIVA?
Scriptures assume the ox
as an incarnation of
Dharmraj as is mentioned
in Parikshita
Kaliyugaprasanga that
Kaliyuga is killing the
Dharma which is in oxen
form.Sage Manu also
writes :
