Bholenath is Bhola Bhandari

Worshipping Shiva means getting freedom from the worldly disorder like Kaam (lust), Krodh(anger), Moh(attraction), Maya (illusion), Ahandkar(ego).

You can testify it; For that test, you require only one month. Chant the auspicious mantra OM Namah Shivaya for just one month and observe the change in your energy and home.

I assure you that your mind will feel the positivity around you.

The best thing about Shiva is that Bholenath doesn't belong to any community, caste, cult, creed or religion. He is neutral in that aspect, Devas and Daityas have a common faith in him.

There is a reason why people call him supreme Sanyasi or Vairagi.

At the time of cosmic ocean crunching; everyone took the luxury item. Shiva was the only one who took poison for himself to protect the universe from the adverser effect of the cosmic poison Halahal.

He drank it for protecting all of us; these qualities of Shiva can make you fall in love with him.

Learning and knowing those simple but effective qualities can fill anybody life with blissfulness.

Worshipping Shiva is like surrendering to the auspiciousness and adapting all the grace of life.

Shaktipati Shiva is kind, emotional, innocent, Guiltless, supernatural, shapeless cosmic phenomena. The one who knows how to give equal respect to his consort, Goddess Parvati.

Now, this makes sense why every unmarried girl wants a husband with virtues and qualities of Maheshwar Shiva.

Gyaneshwara, Shambhoo is the founder of various art skill and the transcendent teacher of Parashurama and SaptRishis. He is the biggest giver in all aspect.

He accepts everyone including venomous snakes to Ghost, demon, humans, nature. Ravana was one of greatest devotee of Shiva who created shiv tandav stotra in reverence of Shiva.

Ram Naam resides in the heart of Shiva and Shiva is kind for everyone and sees everyone on common bases without differentiating in their Karmas.
