Shiva is sometimes called Trilochana, the three-eyed one, because in the center of his forehead is the eye of wisdom, or jnana chaksu.
Shiva is sometimes called Trilochana, the three-eyed one, because in the center of his forehead is the eye of wisdom, or jnana chaksu. This half-lidded third eye also represents his destructive energy that if let loose would destroy the whole world. Half-closed eyes mean that his mind is absorbed in the inner Self while his body is engaged in the world. Shiva is the Master of Yoga, as He uses His yogic power to project the universe from Himself. The half-open eyes symbolize His yogic posture, engrossed in mediation. However viewing the outer world with inner wisdom. Closed eyes would represent one wholly introverted. Fully open eyes would signify total extroverted ness. The symbolism of Shiva's half-closed eyes, however, indicate that He is fully conscious of the within and the without. He understands the world outside to be only a reflection of the Self within. With this intuitive experience, His actions sing the song of the Self in all transactions in the world. It is when the Lord opens His eyes, a new cycle of creation emerges and when He closes them, the universe dissolves for creation of the next cycle. The half-open eyes convey the idea that creation is going through cyclic process, with no beginning and no end! Jai Trayambaka Deva ~ Jai Murudeshwara!
The Lords name is the Invaluable Treasure without which we shall perish. The Lords name is the treasure of wealth, wealth which the lord bestows on his devotes who sincerely seek him.
Meera ke Prabhu Giridhar Nagar, Mere toh Prabhu HariHar smile emoticon Harakha Harakha Jasa Gaayo.
Paayo Ji Maine Ram Ratan Dhan Paayo, Vastu Amolik di mere sataguru Kirapa kari Apanayo!!
The Lords name is the Invaluable Treasure without which we shall perish. The Lords name is the treasure of wealth, wealth which the lord bestows on his devotes who sincerely seek him. It is the food, it is the enjoyment, it is delight, it is the glorious greatness of his devotees. It is the honour. Chanting the name, one is never blocked by any kind of obstacles. Through devotion to the lord many have been liberated. Singing the glory of lords name has miraculous powers. "What is the need for those who chant God’s Name continuously to go on a pilgrimage? When chanting is continuous, our mouth itself becomes a pilgrimage. That itself becomes the location of purity, which can fulfil all our desires" Padma Purana ~ ~ Hari Om Tat Sat Namah Shivaya!
Om Namo Narayana ~ Shivaya Namah Om ~ Jai Shri Vishnu ~ Jai Bholenath!!
May All Be Happy , May All Be Blessed !
O Shiva! Your Maya does not give me up even when I have given it up. In spite of my resistance it clings to me and follows me! Lord of infinite mercy, your Maya frightens me.
"O Shiva! Your Maya does not give me up even when I have given it up. In spite of my resistance it clings to me and follows me! Lord of infinite mercy, your Maya frightens me. O Lord Mallikarjuna, bestow your grace on me. Teach me Your secrets so that I will not fall into this enticing trap laid by Maya. It attempts to cloud my mind and play with my heart. The reflected Truth is not what I seek. Surely You already know what lies ahead of me. Hence, with strengthened conviction, I will stand up after every fall and continue to take tiny steps and will not stop till I reach Your Lotus Feet.!" ~ Om Namah Shivaya Om Namah Shivaya Om Namah Shivaya!
Shiva is beyond Death, while maya is Death itself. People who chase maya are bound to the cycle of birth and death. Meditate in remembrance on His name, These false entanglements last for only a few days. then, one must surely move on to the world hereafter.We have come from dust and will again be dust, so why indulge in false pride? this world is an opportunity to please Him. Draw close to him, only then u will find true peace. All else is delusion. People forget the Lord, and weeps for the sake of Maya. He alone is known to weep who weeps in the Lord's Love. One who weeps for the sake of worldly objects weeps totally in vain.!!
Om Namah Shivaya

Where is Shiva not present?? Shivas presence is continuous throughout all of the creation, in every atom, every particle, he is present in every situation, at any given time. He is JagatPita, father of the Universe, staying in a state blissful, enjoying in its own self eternally. Without any flaws, the perfection is the completeness, there is nothing external that is required to make the self blissful. He created this universe and it's his universe, No molecule or atomic particle is so small that Shiva is not fully present in it, and no galaxy so vast that He does not circumscribe it. For Shiva is naturally present in every aspect of the natural order of things, in every manner, time and place, he is present in every action, every event. !!! All glories to Shiva ~ Jai Jagdishwar!
Om Namah Shivaya Om Namah Shivaya Om Namah Shivaya!!
Nandishwara Teertha temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and his vahana Nandi is located near the Kadu Malleshwara Temple in Bangalore, India.
The Nandishwara Teertha temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and his vahana Nandi is located near the Kadu Malleshwara Temple in Bangalore, India. The temple was discovered in 1999. When a vacant plot of land near the Kadu Malleshwara temple was excavated to yield a perfectly preserved central pool of water surrounded by granite steps and pillared mantapas. The temple houses a Shivalinga continuously bathed with water dripping from the mouth of a stone Nandi statue. People believe the temple to be over 7000 years old. The source of the continuous stream of water from the Nandi's mouth is unknown. It has been hypothesised that water flows from the Sankey Tank here but has not been proved. It is said to be the main source or birthplace of the Vrishabhavathi River. The temple pool is now home to numerous turtles taken care of by the temple authorities.
Om Nandishwaraya Namah ~ Shivaya Namah Om!
