Astonishing certitude of the Lord of God “Shiva”.

The Lord Shiva is considered to be the Ultimate God, He is the destroyer, he is the creator, he is the protector. The word Shiva has been derived by reversing the letters of the word vashVash means to enlighten, thus Shiva is the one who enlightens. He remains Luminous form of everything and also the one who illuminates the Cosmos.

The word “Shi” which is the first half of SHIVA stands for one who is the purest form of truth, perfection, Flawless, Auspicious, the best form of everything. And the word “VA” stands for the one who holds the power to Create, change, transform everything and anything.

Lord Shiva can’t be defined in words, he is the Ultimate form of everything. Shiva is the creator of this whole cosmos. He is considered to be the god of God, one who can be convinced very easily while performing the most basic prayers with purity in heart.

He is considered to be the god of both “The Demons”, & “The Humans” .

Lets Have a look at some of the facts about lord Shiva that many won’t know.

1. He is the God who accept everything & Anything that the whole universe possess, A Devotee who surrenders himself/herself to the Lord Shiva is the most loved one.

A god who is also the Adiyogi, have absolutely no desire “freed from desire”, meaning that he isn’t interested in material possessions.

Ravana always had a desire to build the greatest, the biggest, the most beautiful Palace at Mount Kailash with the help of his brother Kuber (Lord of Wealth) to make sure that his Lord have a beautiful palace where the lord Shiva can stay with his family with all the facilities. But Lord Shiva never accepted that since he was free from all materialistic desires.

3) LORD SHIVA the devotee of LORD RAMA.

a) Lord Shiva is the biggest devotee of Lord Vishnu and Lord Vishnu is the biggest devotee of Lord Shiva. They both mediate about each other at the same time.

When Lord Ram was a new born baby, Lord Shiva came to see his lord in Ayodhya in the form of Sadhu baba accompanying him a Devotee of all the childhood form of Lord Vishnu KagBhushundi also known as Shri Kak Bhusundi, is a sage found in Hindu Scriptures in Hinduism, he is also considered as one of the greatest devotee of lord Ram….. He has also been famous for his many other qualities like he is one of the Chiranjivi’s an immortal living being in Hinduism who are to remain alive on Earth until the end of the current Kali Yuga. (Another interesting aspect is story goes that Kakbhushundi had been granted boon that he will not forget any knowledge that he attained in his previous lives. Besides in general also if you see kak is a very intelligent and cunning animal, who has a high life span).

After reaching the ayodhya, Lord Shiva and Kakbhushundi were not allowed entry since huge crowd were in line to see the Ram lala, The gatekeeper said to Lord Shiva, we can’t allow you to come inside right now, come back later.

Shiva Ji Felt Daunted, he later sat on the banks of the river sarayu with Kakbhushundi and both of them started praying to Rama…. Rama… Rama… Rama…. Rama… O Rama I came here to see you but your dwarapala has asked me to come back again after sometime.

Externally Lord Ram Was a small Child but his Soul was Omniscient, seeing his Lord not getting entry in ayodhya, lord rama started crying, while seeing his child crying mother Kaushalya, Mata started trying consoling him, but the more she tries to console him the more Lord Rama started screaming. Till the time Mother Got really concerned, by the time she understood that Bal Rama need something and he is only crying in acting, but since he was crying continuously as if a big disaster has happened & just she can’t resist. One sakshi Said to Mata kaushalya that somebody’s evil eye has befallen on your lala from the huge crowd, sakhi said let’s go and find somebody who can remove the evil eye from our lala.

Rama Lala Sitting inside the Sakhi, Guiding them to reach to Lord Shiva worshiping at the banks of River Sarayu. The sakhis came and asked Lord Shiva, Babaji do you know how to remove the evil eye from the child. Lord Shiva Smiled and Said yes, I know very well. Now the sakhis brought Shivaji in Ayodhya who has been pushed out earlier, now he is walking as the royal guest of kaushalya.

The moment Lord Shiva Enter the room of Kaushalya, Lord Rama Crying like anything, lord Shiva Said without saying a word,. Oh Lord what kind of leela you do. The ocean of Divine Bliss (Lord Rama). That is why he got the name lord Rama, in his leela crying like a small child. Lord Shiva Smiling in his Mind what a Leeladhar Lord Vishnu is, even in his Child Form he is doing such unmatchable leena. Lord Rama Looked at lord Shiva and Stopped Crying. He started doing his childhood giggling. Mata Kaushalya seeing the transformation got extremely impressed and thought that the baba is a siddh and said that baba I am indebted to you. Shiva ji thought I should also take the advantage of this and do some leela. Mata If you want give your child in my lap, I will do something that nobody will ever cast an evil Eye on your child. She handed baby Rama to lord Shiva, Seeing Lord Rama on Lord Shiva Lap, Kakbhushundi also touched the feet of Lord Rama from his head.

Mata Said Babaji can you also foresee or predict the future of my lala. Lord Shiva Said Oh yes Mayya, your child will become the most famous Human that has ever taken birth. His fame will spread over 3 worlds, people will build temples for him. Mata Become Thrilled after hearing sadhu’s word.

b) Lord Shiva at the time of Drinking the Poison from the ocean took the name of Lord Rama, and the adverse effect of poison got neutralized.

C) Rama is the purest/perfect form of a Man, He is defined as the Role Model of All. So much so that even while chanting his name can make the human sins free.

There are a lot of stories of Lord Shiva that can enlighten us. Will keep on sharing those stories with you. Thanks for reading.
