This post is really close to my heart and reason is obvious, this post is related to mahadev

Let's get started

Introduction of Lord Mahadev

The term Mahadev is very common in the south Asian contries like India and various other countries like Nepal, Sri Lanka etc. This Ideology is based on the primary form of contemporary God.

Sada Shiv is regarded as Supreme consciousness in it, which further divided into the three main tiers
Brahma Vishnu Mahesh .

This Trinity is the primary form of divine entity which handles different operation from Creation to protection and which leads to destruction.

This is a continuous cyclic process in which Brahma plays the role of the creator whereas Lord Vishnu plays the role of preserver and Shiva plays the role of the destructor.

Shiva as Mahadev

Shiva is regarded as Mahadev means Lord of Lords. Mahadev Inventor of yoga and music lover. There are many attributes associated with Shiva. We are bringing these two ( 1) Damru (2) Dance of destruction Tandav.

Shiva Drum: A small drum shaped like an hourglass is known as a Damru. This is one of the attributes of Shiva in his famous dancing representation known as Natraja.

A specific hand gesture (mudra) called damru hasta (in Sanskrit means "damru in hand") is used to hold the drum.

Tandav: Shiva is auspicious and dear to all, From demi gods to nature and from nature to humans. Even demon king worshipped him.

In reverence of Lord Shiva great demon king Ravana created something known with the name of Shiva Tandav Stotra.

Lord Shiva is famous for his naive nature and anger. His dance also known as the dance of destruction, Once Shiva destroyed Kamdev from his third eye. But on Kamdev wife request Lord Shiva returned Kamdev life to him.

In Sikhism, The Japuji Sahib of the Guru Granth Sahib says, "The Guru is Shiva, the Guru is Vishnu and Brahma; the Guru is Paarvati and Lakshmi.

Shiva as mahadeva

My inner thoughts on Mahadev

When I think about Mahadev, many things come in my mind which fills me with joy and inner peace.

When I was a young kid, I always looked Shiva picture as a man who has trident in his right hand and snake around his neck.

I never understood Shiva as Param Bharma. But when I came to know about him and understood why he is one of the most contemporary forms of divine entity. It changed my aspect towards life.

It gave me a wider version of this world. Now I feel more energetic and powerful. I just enjoy his presence everywhere around me.

Time and things have changed for me, Today; I see his presence in flower petals and in the sound of the rain. He is also present in the smile of a kid.

sometimes he becomes my teacher who teaches me that any condition can be handled with patience and smile. Inspiration to perform my wheel of karmas Otherwise who has the power in this world to even displace a tiny sand particle.

He is unborn, immortal, interminable, everlasting yogi, Supreme Consciousness.

He has many names, you can call him from any name Shiva, Rudra, Mahadev Maheshwaraya etc.

He is the one who is not bounded with the wheel of karma and time.

Mahadev is the ultimate destroyer of darkness and ego who is free from worldly bonds.

Small story - Here we are sharing a small story of goddess Sati. Sage Dadhichi introduced Mahadev to mother Sati On the first meet of Mata Sati with Sage Dadhichi.

Sage: "You've never seen it before, isn't it? Somebody with ASH smeared on their bodies with adorned with the RUDRAKSHA beads."

Sati: "NO... "

Sage smile: "ASH is the ultimate end of our lives. ASH it never allows us to forget that all that is created, is destroyable including the world itself Then why the attachment to this world? And these are the seed of RUDRAKSHA Seeds never wither.

They never die, They give life, like the soul, So that we never lose sight of this truth That's why we wear a garland of RUDRAKSHA seed This is the mark of the devotees of lord shiva"

Sati: " Shivaaaa......ssss----aaa". The first time she comes to know about Lord Shiva

Author's one minute
The extra ordinary story of Shiva and Sati starts from here. Although Sati was Adishakti who took birth in Daksha home as his daughter. She made name for herself as Dakshayani.

This is the story of trust, love, and devotion of a lady who became the loving wife of Shiva.

But this journey of Sati was not that simple as it seems to be, I want you to think about a princess who falls in love with a Vairagi.

Most amazing thing about Shiva is that he is not bounded in the bonds of karma, lives in the deep cold freezing Mount of Kailash.

How can someone fall in love with such a man, who owns nothing but same time master of the universe?

This story will spellbind you when you came to know that her father Daksha was the greatest hater of Shiva.

He never gave the respect to Lord Shiva, on the other hand, his own most loved daughter Sati falls in love with Shiva. The Charm and devotion towards Shiva strength Sati to move towards Lord Shiva.

Shiva and sati


Lord Shiva is regarded as Mahadev the first Yogi with virtues of a king or master of zen.

There are many things which we can learn from Shiva, his innocence, his self-control and ability to do right things in right time.
