Existence of Shiva

The first thing we would like to tell you that Shiva is supreme sentience. The whole universe came into existence by his desire.

Shiva is the limitless void who is filled with extreme energy. It is his energy which is flowing across the universe.

The thing which we can see and which we cannot see all belong to him. It means entire universe is inside him and we are inside him.

When we look towards the sky and count stars in the night. We see twinkling stars and according to modern science, these stars contain the immense amount of energies.

Every substance is made of matter and energy which means our whole universe is made up of matter and energy.

Our universe contains

  1. only 2 - 4 % of matter
  2. 20- 22% is Dark matter and
  3. rest 74% - 78% is Dark energy.

Dark energy

Dark matter and Dark energy are completely beyond human consciousness. world Scientists are trying to learn about Dark matter and Dark energy.

Dark matter and Dark energy are responsible for the creation of the entire universe who caused the Big bang.

When we look towards Sanatana Vedic knowledge. Goddess Adishakti is regarded as Dark energy.

Shiva is also the major part of the Dark energy but Shiva is silent means Vairagi whereas another part of Dark energy discharges as Rudrani or goddess Durga .

Both Shiva and Rudrani collectively form Dark energy. Goddess Rudrani is an extreme form of dark energy, the existence of the whole universe depends on Dark energy will.

The energy which cannot be created nor destroyed. Therefore Shiva & Adishakti are one, one supreme lord.

Shiva is immortal, unconquerable, unborn, supreme consciousness. Shiva has limitless energy which is equivalent to Goddess Adishakti.

It is the reason that only Shiva can control the flux of Time and Space dimension. Kaal Chakra or wheel of time is under Shiva's control.

This Dark energy is available in every substance which is present in the form of Shiva Tattva. This Shiva tattva is available everywhere.

In cosmic galaxies, Black holes are the representation of the Shiva Tattva. To start the time Chakra, Shiva requires creating the vacuum in dark energy.

According to Shiva Purana universe has 10 Rudras form of Shiva. These Rudra's are responsible for the cosmic destruction.

One can understand Rudra as the destructor of the galaxies or destruction of the planets.

To start the universe Shiva performed the divine dance which is known as Tandava.

Dancing form of Shiva is Natraj, the circle of the Natraj is the representation of the Time Chakra which produces the Blackhole.

These black hole originated from the Vibration of the energy Tandava . The fire which is coming out of the circle is the matter.

The distance between the flame represents the Vacuum space. Vishnu emerged from Shiva-Shakti who is responsible for the preservation of the matter.

Lord Vishnu is the base of the entire universe and available in every matter. Brahma emerged from Vishnu's navel part through a Lotus stem.

Brahma created force, rules and policies for the universe. Various forms of the Rudras help in maintaining the balance of the cosmos.

Lord Vishnu is the soul, Brahma is the mind, Shiva is soul maker, AdiShakti is Shiva's energy.
