Shiva means the untouched, which conveys the meaning that HE is free from this cycle of life and death, that is the reason he is referred as even Mahadev (lord of the Lords ). Shiva is Swayambhu (self created ). When we say Shiva is the destroyer , it means that he will not destroy the world , but refers to destroying the evil, arrogance, negativity, ignorance in us, and thus making us better humans. Shiva is the Destroyer or the Transformer who operates the phenomena happening in the cosmos among the primary aspects of the divine. Shiva is the destructive form of the Almighty. As the cycle of destruction and recreation is always in a circle, Shiva’s primary responsibility is maintaining the life cycle. As the Mahakaal, Shiva destroys and dissolves everything into nothingness but as Shankara, he also reproduces that which has been destroyed and dissolved. Lord Shiva is no ordinary god; He is very mysterious and his ways can never be interpreted by the earthly norms and definitions. He performs multiple roles and wields a mighty power over the universe. He takes delight in occupying the crematory grounds and the favorite dress code of Lord Shiva is animal skin and skull garlands. What relieves you from all the problems and suffering is the trishul. And it is in the hand of Shiva. Shul means problems or suffering. Trishul means that which destroys all kind of suffering. Three types of pain that arise in life: 1. Aadibhautik (physical) 2. Aadhyaatmik (spiritual) and 3. Aadidaivik (ethereal) Holding a trishul(Trident) signifies that Shiva (the divinity) is above all the three states – waking, dreaming and sleeping, yet is the upholder of these three states. The divinity is beyond the three gunas, but it holds the three gunas together. βœ¨πŸŒ…πŸ‘πŸπŸ’€πŸ•‰πŸ”±βŒ›οΈπŸŒ€πŸŒ™πŸŒ·πŸŒ…πŸ™πŸ»βœ¨artist @gokuldas.ks
