Celebrating the Shiva Tatva in oneself, is called Shivratri. Shiva is transcendental, divine consciousness which brings solace to all layers of existence. Like sponge in water, when mind and bodies are in Shiva Tatva, wishes get fulfilled effortlessly. - Sri Sri
This entire universe is made up of the five elements , the Pancha Mahabhootas : Prithvi , Agni, Jala, Vayu and Akasha. Shiva represents the manifestation of the Pancha Mahabhootas. Shiva is present in each and every bit of this universe. It is said even a blade of grass doesn’t move to the wind without the permission of Shiva.
The entire world invokes the energy of Shiva in many forms. People do Pooja and Abhishekam. Some people sing and dance in his name. While some people meditate!
Shiva is an experience. An eternal truth. One who is not affected by three Gunas – Sattva, Rajas and Tamas.
Yet the story of Shiva remains an untold secret!
Does he really open his third eye?
Did he really drink poison for this world?
Why is he called the Mahadeva or the greatest God?
Why is he called Vishwanatha or the Lord of the Universe?
Why does he decorate a snake round his neck ?
Come experience Shiva in the words of our beloved Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
