Bishwa Nath Singh:

Lord Shiva is one the supreme deity in Hinduism. Shiva is one of the Trimurti, along with Lord Brahma the Creator and Lord Vishnu the Preserver. Lord Shiva is usually represented by the Shiva linga. In Hindu scriptures it is called Mahadeva Maheshwar and and Parameśvara, the Supreme Lord. Lord Shiva is revered as the ultimate controller of birth and death in the phenomenal world. Lord Shiva represents the aspect of the Supreme Being that continuously dissolves to recreate in the cyclic process of creation, preservation, dissolution and recreation of the universe.Let us have glimpse on legendary story connected with his emergence!

 Lord Shiva represents the aspect of the Supreme Being that continuously dissolves to recreate in the cyclic process of creation, preservation, dissolution and recreation of the universe. The God of Rain Lord Indira once God of Heaven had r...eceived a garland as a gift from the sage, Durvarasa, but slighted the old man by giving the garland to his elephant who threw it to the ground. Rishi Durvaraas cursed the god in his anger and spoke to him that his kingdom would be overwhelmed by ruin, Almost immediately, Indra's powers began getting eloped and the god fearing that they would lose their immortality and the asuras would invade Kailash, Indira appealed to Vishnu for help. Lord Vishnu advised them to unite with their foes, the evil demons, collect herbs and plants and cast them into the sea of milk and churn the ocean to produce nectar( Amrit ) being the source of all strength and immortality. They were to use the sacred mountain, Mandara for a churning stick, the serpent Vasuki, wound around the mountain as a rope and in the oceans midst, Lord Vishnu himself, present in tortoise form, became a pivot for the churning staff. And the Vishnu said that he will take care of all foes shall share all righteousness but will not partake in its reward, or drink the immortal nectar As such, the gods pulled the serpent's head and the demons his tail and Mandara swivelled rapidly back and forth. And, as the sea of milk frothed and bubbled, it brought forth the sacred cow, fountains of milk and butter and Parijata, the tree of paradise with its fragrant blossoms. The moon rose out of the ocean and settled on Shiva's head. A terrible poison then burst from the waters and threatened to destroy the earth. Shiva, it is said, opened his mouth and received it in his throat. So virulent was the poison that it turned Shiva's neck blue, giving him one of his many names, Neelkanth, the blue-throated. As the waters began to calm, Dhanavati, the physician of the gods appeared, bearing the kumbh -pot of the life-giving powerful nectar. The gods reached for the nectar and the demons too came forward. War was inevitable. Vishnu called forth Divine Sri, Goddess of Beauty. Enthralled, the demons watched mesmerized as the peerless beauty rose out of the waters, seated on a lotus. Vishnu passed the pot of nectar to the gods, thus restoring their immortality.It symbolizes the victory of good over evil, with of course a little guile and cunning to weigh the balance in the favour of the good. The legend is also a part of the complex Hindu’s belief of the creation of the world and, at another level, reveals the Hindu preoccupation with the powers of medicine and the concepts of mortality and immortality. Millions of people from all over India come to bathe in the waters of the sacred Sipra during the Kumbh Mela Let us go to the sacred river Sipra in Ujjain in India to have fragrance of Lord Shiva during Kumbh fair and pay our humble obeisance’s to Lord Shiva to seek His bliss for well-being of all living –being of this universe!


.Pramod Astrologer Mission आदि वही अनंत वही
शिव वही और शक्ति भी वही, इसलिए तो उन्हें अर्धनारीश्वर भी कहा जाता है
तीनो देवों में जिनको महा की उपाधि प्राप्त है उसे ही तो हम महादेव कहते हैं
