Gurudev, yesterday we were told that Shiva’s seat is Nirvana (liberation), and His presence is bliss and he spreads joy all around him. Can you please elaborate on this?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Why are you troubling me? I don’t trouble you to understand so why do you trouble me to make you understand it?
All these are aphorisms given to you and you are given the intellect to ponder upon and understand the meaning of these.
Gurus need not give long sermons. They will only give you the essence. You must dwell upon it and reflect on it and it will open up within you.
