Shiva in his ParamShiva state is Swayambhu, which literally means self-manifested, without birth or without origin.


In me the universe has its origin
In Me alone the whole subsists
In Me it is lost—Shiva
The Timeless, it is I Myself
Shivoham! Shivoham! Shivoham!
Shiva in his ParamShiva state is Swayambhu, which literally means self-manifested, without birth or without origin. Shiva is not born, he manifests on his own. Shiva is birth less, attribute less, formless and he is so because of his own nature, so he is Swayambhu. There is a verse in Vedas singing 3 well known names of Brahman as SHIV, SHANKER, SHAMBHU. One of the verses in Yajurveda invokes Brahman through 6 names including 3 highly popular names,' Shiv Shanker & Shambhu. Millions of devotees daily chant these names while worshipping HIM.
Shiva has been described in 6 forms.
1- SHAMBHAV (well being)
2 - MAYOBHAV(manifested as the forms of delight)
3 - SHANKER ( creator of well being)
4 - MAYASKER (creator of delight)
5 - SHIV (peaceful & unmanifested form of Brahman)
6 - SHIVTARA ( the form further beyond the Shiva form ).
Three names of Lord Shiva are always fascinating Svayambhu, Tejaswi and Akshar. If you talk of Shiva as one of the Trinity, then these names may not attract you much. When we talk of Lord Shiva, as Param Siva, then the names have great meanings. Shiva is the origin of the universe. It is He who manifests as Ardhanarishwara and then Shakti separates from him and the universe starts unfolding. It is then that the trinity is born and then other devas and asuras and all living being takes birth.! 🍃🌼🍂🌸🍃🌺🍃🌻🍃🍂

THERE HE DANCES

THERE HE DANCES
There He dances
on His mountain top.
His tap of feet
coming down to the Vale of our heart,
like He was here, always
from the start.
We call Him by different names
O peers of Panchaal,
the One who began this Dance, with His hourglass.
And then
a lift into the sky
makes it whisper,
Namah Shivaye.
Aum Namah Shivaye.
{Shiva Poetry by Shail Gulhati)

THE ENIGMA OF SHIVA

THE ENIGMA OF SHIVA
“His mentions had been varied.
Shiva the auspicious, Shiva the Warlord,
Shiva the mountain God, Shiva the dweller of the cremation grounds,
Shiva the creator of the universe, Shiva the destroyer, Shiva the ascetic, Shiva the loyal husband,
Shiva the intoxicated, Shiva the meditator,
Shiva the recluse, Shiva the Supreme spiritual master! Which One was He?”
“Yes, which one was He indeed, Gurudeva?” asked Shaunaka.
“The transformed seers spoke of Shiva in endearing terms, adding yet another epithet to His mentions.
‘Verily, He is all. He is Shiva Nataraja, Lord of the cosmic dance! ” replied Suta,
"One thing that stood out clearly in the descriptions, was that there was much paradox about Him. The moment anyone thought they understood one aspect of Him, immediately another would come and juxtapose itself in contrast. And that was the way He was known by most people: As the greatest enigma in the pantheon of the hindu Gods,”

Santoshi Mata is particularly worshipped by women of North India and Nepal.

Santoshi Maa is venerated as "the Mother of Satisfaction", the meaning of her name. Santoshi Mata is particularly worshipped by women of North India and Nepal. A vrata (ritual fast) called the Santoshi Maa vrata performed by women on 16 consecutive Fridays wins the goddess' favour.
Santoshi Mata emerged as the goddess in the early 1960s. Her prayer initially spread through word of mouth, vrata-pamphlet literature, and poster art. Her vrata was gaining popularity with North Indian women. However, it was the 1975 Bollywood film Jai Santoshi Maa ("Hail to Santoshi Maa")—narrating the story of the goddess and her ardent devotee Satyavati—which propelled this then little-known "new" goddess to the heights of devotional fervour. With the rising popularity of the film, Santoshi Mata entered the pan-Indian Hindu pantheon and her images and shrines were incorporated in Hindu temples. The film portrayed the goddess to be the daughter of Ganesha and related her to the Raksha bandhan festival.
When Ganesha's sister Manasa celebrates the festival with him, his sons ask Ganesha to grant them a sister. Although Ganesha initially refuses, upon the repeated pleas of his two wives Riddhi and Siddhi, sons, sister and the divine sage Narada, Ganesha creates Santoshi Mata through two flames rising from his wives' breasts. Narada decreed that this mind-born daughter of Ganesha will always fulfil everyone’s desires and thus, would be called Santoshi Maa, the Mother of Satisfaction. 🎨🕉🌷🕉🎨

Everything begins from nothing, and ends with nothing.


Many are the names of Shiva, and infinite the forms that lead us to know Him. In whatsoever name or form you desire to call Him, in that very form and name you will see Him. Shiva, that which is not. Everything begins from nothing, and ends with nothing. Everything that is here has evolved itself out of nothingness. And it again goes back to nothingness. That nothingness is Shiva. What we call Shoonya is Shiva! The emptiness is Shiva. Call it by any name or any form, you can look at it as formless energy. But that which contains everything, and which is not, is Shiva! Shiva, the auspicious, Shambhu! Triyambaka, one with third eye, eye of vision. Other two eyes feed the mind with all kinds of nonsense because what you see is not the truth. So the third eye has to be opened for deeper penetration. Realise yourself to reach the highest within yourself, reach the peak within yourself. Locking him up in Pooja room won't help, he is within you. Shiva, Shambhu, the Mahadev is in your heart! ~ Shivoham Shivoham! 🌿🌼🍃🌻🍃🌿🌼
