It is legended that when Sati died, Shiva was inconsolable.
He wept like a child, remonstrated like a madman and openly exposed his immense grief, crying unamashedly in front of the ganas he commanded.
Was this Ungodly? Was it correct to be so attached to 'deha' a body?
This is the mystifying aspect of Shiva that i love; to me, this kind of behaviour does not make him ungodly at all, it,rather shows how humane Shiva really was.To know that the Atman is eternal, it cannot die, is one thing, but to grieve at the absence of a partner, it is possible even when a beloved is going away for a month to a far off land, is it not? so, to me, Shiva's grief does not divest him of his spiritual mastery at all, rather it shows his endearingly human vulnerability because of great love.
Shiva's is a divinely human display of emotion, sacred by its purity!
And here is the real mystic punch:
Paradoxical as it is, it seems to me that if even a god weeps at the death of a beloved one, then,and then alone is there a possibility of that God creating deathlessness in some point of evolution.
what do you think? please share your thoughts.
Aum Namah Shivaye.
