“There is an even higher state of Consciousness than that of participation with energy, the state of being able to give spiritual transference. This is being Shakti’s father, giving her away as a bride, this verily, is what I am, the complete Shiva!  So the highest that Shivahood or power of creation can do for a man, is to give him spiritual insight, Shaktidan. Where is this Shakti? Inside you, it can be met at the transcendental level during meditation. And where are you? inside Shakti (Nature) at the manifest level. This is to be noted. Although you constitute a minuscule part of Shakti manifest, Shakti as the source, is present in you; a Universe in every atom!  She is waiting to be known, more appropriately, re-discovered, by the eternal meditator. What constitutes the process of spiritual transference to the eternal meditator? Seers, saints, rishis, munis are the Uncles and Aunts. Shiva is the father and Shakti (Nature) is the mother, of young Shakti. They all participate. But to bestow Shakti upon mankind, this is Swayamvara, a process of natural selection. Thus, the essential role, is to be friend Shakti herself; or, the striving must come from within, a self effort on the part of the seeking man”.

Shiva Parvati vivah!

Photo: Shiva Parvati vivah!
The moment that Lord Shiva put a jayamala around parvati was more than just a marriage. It was a coming together of being and becoming, of transcendence and manifestation, of yin and yang,It was a fulfillment of creation, the creator and the created, of love and bonding, of togetherness, of godhead and Leela...
The wise understand it as a culminating point of the very birth of prithvilok in particular and the entire Universe in general.

The moment Parvati put the jayamala around Shiva, it was the greatest welcome to God on Earth!

The Experiment

“Let us explain this in terms of science” ,  the Yogi was on a roll, “ there is light, which is the source. We place a prism, which is a medium, we have a screen, a recipient, that on which we want a projection, and finally, we have the projection itself, a rainbow, the desired result. A small miracle understood and performed by science. The final projection is beautiful, you could go on admiring this beauty endlessly. Finally you will become curious to probe into the way it all works, you yearn for a deeper understanding. So, without light, which is the source, say God, there is no experiment. Without the medium, say Shakti, God’s creative power, there will be no projection, without the screen, say Earth, there is nowhere to project the projection. When all the three are placed together in a studied manner, we get the fourth, the projection; life? You must note that this result brings alive the manifestation of the beautiful colours hidden in light, which is colourless in its purity. In absence of the experiment, it cannot reflect itself, by remaining in itself. This is the way Shiva needs to reflect himself. Now,  are the projected colours real or unreal, truth or illusion? Meditate upon this,”  He concluded.

The concept of Durga as a slayer, is perhaps the most Unique contribution of Hinduism to the understanding of the balance of Mother Nature: She is the Universal provider, she gives life to all,but, to keep the check and balance, Nature as God can also finish the term of a life, especially if it is not in harmony with goodness.

The Dynasty of the Dogra rulers were noted for being very pious Kings.And even today the artifacts in their museum have splendid pieces dedicated to God.
