Everything originates from nothing and returns to nothing, as contemporary science is now able to demonstrate to us. Enormous nothingness is the foundation of existence and the essence of the universe. Shiva is the name for the remaining wide empty space. That is the birthplace of everything and the place where everything is pulled back into oblivion. Shiva is the source of everything and thus they go back to Shiva. Shiva is referred to as darkness rather than light. The sole reason why humanity has gone about praising light is because of the nature of the optical apparatus they possess. Otherwise, darkness is the only thing that never changes. Light is a finite phenomenon since all sources of light, including the sun and light bulbs, will eventually run out of energy. Light is not always there. Given that it occurs and then ends, there is never more than a small chance of it. The likelihood of darkness is substantially higher than that of light. On a deeper level, when we refer to "Shiva," we are actually referring to a particular yogi, the first yogi, as well as the Adi Guru who served as the foundation for what is now known as the modern yogic discipline. Yoga does not include doing headstands. Yoga is a technique that helps people understand the fundamentals of life, including how it is produced and how it can be developed to its full potential.
Lord Shiva’s blessings
One of the primary schools of Hinduism, Shaivism, worships Shiva as the Supreme Being- T the Destructive God, Brahman, The God of ultimate reality, moksha, karma, time, arts, dance, yoga, and meditation; the Supreme Being in Shaivism who defeats evil. Worshiping Lord Shiva prevents sadness from entering one's life and maintains one's thoughts tranquil and harmonious. It is said that Monday is the most favorable day to honor Lord Shiva. Those who worship Lord Shiva on Monday supposedly have their dreams come true. According to Hindu doctrine, Lord Shiva is regarded as the universe's father. Of all the gods, he is the most divine. Worshiping Lord Shiva, sometimes referred to as "Maha Dev" or the greatest deity, gives success, wealth, longevity, and psychological calm.
The miracles of having Lord Shiva’s Tanjore Painting
There are various elements in a Lord Shiva Tanjore painting. The primary meaning of a drum would be sound, but that is not all that it means. The creative process is described by the drum that Shiva is holding. This drum is thought to represent the universe and the act of creation. They claim it demonstrates how creation occurs in a similar manner to how the drum contracts and expands. The entire cosmos has its own rhythm, just as the heartbeat is created by specific rhythms. Nandi is revered as the one who sees righteousness and truth. Hindus hold that images of Lord Shiva riding a bull represent him as the rider of honesty and truth, standing beside those who carry out good actions. The River Ganges is revered as a particularly calm, holy, and divine body of water. Hindus have strong religious sentiments and attachments to this river. The river that emerges from his mind demonstrates how he ingests the cosmos into himself. He possesses immortal knowledge and power, exactly like the limitless Ganges. Additionally, it conveys how sincere and generous he is when this is seen dripping from his head. Literally, it says that Lord Shiva possesses the wisdom that cleanses the soul. The truth is just as liberating, empowering, and cleansing as Ganges holy water.
