About Lord Shiva

 

In his form as the Destroyer of Evil Lord Shiva forms part of the Trinity, together with Lord Brahma who is the creator of the Universe and Lord Vishnu who is the maintainer of the Universe. Lord Shiva is also known as Maheshwara or Mahadeva. What is created must be destroyed, ie absorbed into the cosmos so that a new cycle can be created. Lord Shiva plays this very important role.

 

He is often portrayed in meditation position and is thus also known as the Maha yogi ie. the great yogi. Meditating on Lord Shiva will bring you tranquillity, peace and comfort.

 

Lord Shiva is one of the easiest deities to please. By simply chanting “om na mah shi va ya” you will receive his blessings. He is also renown for granting boons to his devotees.

 

Shiva Mantra

 

Om Namah Shivaya is a very powerful mantra used to awaken higher states of consciousness and literally means in Sanskrit “ I bow to Shiva”. It has been said that if this mantra vibrates continually in your heart, then you have no need to perform austerities, to meditate or to practice yoga.

 

The mantra has five syllables: na-mah-shi-va-ya. These five syllables represent the five elements of earth, water, fire, air, and space. Thus, the Om Namah Shivaya mantra leads awareness in the reverse order from manifestation back to the source from which manifestation arose

 

Chanting the Shiva Mantra

 

All you need to do is sit quiety with your eyes closed and chant “om na mah shi va ya”. Alternatively you can chant the mantra 108 times with the sacred rudraksha mala beads every morning and or evening.

                                                              

 

                               

      May the glory of Lord Shiva always be with you!       

                                                                                  Jai Shiva Shankar!
