While running, Rabbit enters into a Shivalaya and starts running around the Lingam. He was repeating, only one determination Oh Lord, please protect me.

He completes a turn around the lingam, but wolf catches him with his neck. Immediately Shiva appears there. Mahadev orders the wolf to leave the rabbit alone as rabbit took a turn around of the lingam.

Unknowingly rabbit worshipped Shiva and Shiva appeared immediately to protect his devotee.

That is the kindness of Lord Shiva.

2 - ) Story of a thief

Once upon a time, there was a thief whose work was to rob the people's house in the midnight.

The important thing has he never hurt anyone while robbing a house.

He was an atheist who never worshipped any form of the divinity.

One day he came to know that the people of their village offered a golden Chatra to Shivlingam.

He decides to rob it. He visits Shivalaya in midnight.

There was a water utensil in the Shivalaya filled with water on it.

By stumble, the utensil drops on the lingam.

The thief decides to stand on the lingam to comfortably take out the Chatra.

Suddenly, the voice of Damroo starts coming in his ears, he gets scared, because nobody was there with him except Shivling.

He befalls down on the ground and, starts experiencing heart heaviness.

In his fear, he starts to dwindle. One by one all his past sins start rolling out into his eyes.

He realizes his past committed sins which breaks down him. He looks at the Shivlingam and folds his hands with experiencing Shiva within him.

He decides to become an honest man and leave all kind of bad accomplishments.

Shiva appears in the form of common sage and blesses the thief. The thief starts weeping on the feet of Shiva and Shiva wipe out the tears.

Shiva talks with him and eventually, thief asks Shiva, why you appeared in front of me.

Whereas I never worshipped you as your devotee, I am a sinner.

Why you appeared to me and blessed me?

Shiva - I never differentiate my devotee basis of their Karma, custom, birth, gender, creed, color.

Therefore everyone is dear to me.

Theif - You have so many devotees who keep worshipping you day and night.

Why didn't you appear to them?

The Time you poured water on me and stand on Shivlingam in that precise moment, you volunteered yourself to me. Offering yourself to Lord is the true devotion, my child.

Whereas, my other devotees still, have to complete devotion on me.

Shiva - The day they will have complete reverence for me, I will appear in front of them as well.

This incident proves the kindness of Lord Shiva.

Lord Shiva is known for his simplicity and calmness. His devotees call him Ashutosh which mean the one who gets easily pleased.

It is the reason why Shiva devotees call him Bholenath. The one who owns the entire process of Creation and destruction.

There are many lessons which you could learn from Shiva.

The shakti which flows in your navel is the strength of him. He is always kind, the one who distributes the nectar to others and accepts the cosmic poison for himself.

Have you ever heard or seen anyone doing anything like that. Therefore, he is Mahadev.


There is no one like Shiva, Lord Shiva is unique and an epitome of kindness.
