In The Quest For Shiva

You can split the word “Shiva” into Sha, ee, and va , with each representing something. Sha is the short form of shareeram and thus represents the body.
Ee is the short form for eeshwara and thus represents life-giving energy. Va is the short form of Vayu and thus represents motion.As a whole, Shiva represents “body” having “life” and “motion.”
When the ‘ee’ is taken away Shiva becomes sha and va or Shava. This implies a body without life. Everything that has Shiva has life, and everything that does not have Shiva is Shava and so does not have a life.
 
 
Shiva can be described in three words, which are, auspicious, potential, and life. Shiva is all-embracing and the collective soul or realization. Those who realize this gets Ananda or Shiva Tattva.

Shiva and Shiva Tattva

Shiva is the complete universe. He’s present in every particle of the cosmos. There are three phases in Shiva Tattva, namely, Arupa, Rupa-arupa, and sarupa.

  • Arupa does not have any form
  • Rupa-arupa is a form that emerges from the formless
  • Sarupa has form

Shiva is without a body and he wasn’t an individual at all. A form was created for representing the bottomless, the never-ending divinity, and for making it lucid to young people and others. Shiva is a theory or Tattva that is the origin of everything.  It sustains everything and everything melts into it. Shiva can be described as consciousness. Due to being the highest good of the entire creation, Shiva has a blue body with blue signifying the infinite sky. The greatest miracle is that the same consciousness resides in all beings in this creation!

It’s formless yet it resides in every form

Rudrabhishekam is the summoning of Lord Shiva via mantra of Sri Rudram and performance of abhishekam. It brings prosperity, peace, hale and hearty body, spirit, and mind. It does away with negative vibes and defends the disciples from evil forces.In India, It is performed at well-known destinations that include Haridwar, Kashi/Varanasi, and Rishikesh.’Virupe-bhyo vishva-rupe bhyash-cha vo namo namah’ is a verse in Rudrabhishekam.Virupe-bhyo implies one without form while Vishva-rupe-bhyo implies that even then it resides in every form of the universe.Every form is the manifestation of the amorphous Shiva.

It had no beginning and It won’t End

There is a great story associated with Shiva. Once upon a time, Brahma the architect, and Vishnu the defender of the Universe were keen on finding Shiva for understanding it entirely. Brahma told Vishnu that while he seeks his head Vishnu should try and find his feet. They tried for thousands of years without success.  The implication of the story is Shiva is without beginning and without end.

What is the way of knowing Shiva?

In Veda Saara Shiva Stotram, written by Adishankaracharya, a philosopher of India during the 18th century, there is a verse “Tapo yoga gamya.”’ This basically means that the way of finding Shiva is by tapa and yoga.You can also know it with Omkaara, which is the primeval sound of the cosmos.

What is the way of understanding Shiva

The earliest Rishis recommend 4 steps for understanding Shiva. They are:

  • Anavopaya – the disciplining of one’s ego
  • Anava – meditation
  • Saktopaya – the activating of the energy centers by concentrating one’s thought in silence
  • Sambavopaya – by freeing oneself from thinking

‘Shruti Gyan Gamyah’ is another verse in Adi Shankaracharya’s Veda Saara Shiva Stotram and it states that one can understand Shiva by awareness of the shrutis that can be heard while deep in meditation. This state is that of Samadhi. This fourth state is the place for finding Shiva Tattva.

When rudraksha is connected to him, that means, it can give power, strength to stay hale and hearty. Also, it increases concentration power and makes you sharper and focused than ever. Let’s find out what the stories are behind the beads-

Story from Devi Bhagwat Purana

According to the religious text of Devi Bhagwat Purana, there was a demon king, named Maya. He was outrageous and strong. With divine power he became uncontrollable. Once he realized his power, he wanted to gain the supreme strength and that’s why started troubling the saints and the deities. He was so powerful that none could stand in front of him. He made three towns of three different metals- one was of gold; the other was of silver and the last town was built of iron.

He made these towns non-destroyable and named them together- Tripur. As the ruler of Tripur, he named himself as ‘Tripurasur’. He ruled over these towns with his two brothers. Soon, he commenced war against Indra, the king of the gods. He won the battle and looted paradise and started to rule there. Being thrown out from the monarchy, Indra went to Lord Brahma for help. But, after getting disappointment there, he moved to Lord Vishnu. But, Lord Vishnu also could not help him. He suggested him to visit Lord Shiva and together all gods, Indra went to Lord Shiva for rescuing heaven again and destroying Tripurasur and his three towns. The entire creation began to help Lord Shiva. The chariot was made of earth while the wheels were the sun god and the moon god themselves. Lord Brahma drove the chariot with Lord Shiva on it while Lord Vishnu became the arrow in the arch of Lord Shiva.

All other gods got prepared for the battle against Tripurasur. When Lord Shiva reached the place from where he can use just one arrow to kill Tripurasur. Reached at the spot, Lord Shiva got too angry that he took the pose of Rudra. In that pose, he executed his arrows and destroyed Tripurasur with three towns, Tripur.

All gods became very happy and worshipped Lord Shiva. After the battle, all gods returned to the Himalaya for rest. There, Lord Shiva started meditation. Once he opened his beautiful eyes, few tear drops fell from his eyes. Those tear drops formed rudraksha tree and the beads are the fruits of the tree. Thus, rudraksha tree came into being.

Rudraksha As Found In Nature

 

Rudraksha beads are famous for spiritual benefits as those are believed to be associated with Lord Shiva. That’s why, rudraksha contains the power and strength of Lord Shiva. To make people heartier and healthier, rudraksha plays an important role. The scientific name of rudraksha is Elaeocarpus. This is a large evergreen tree whose trunk is cylindrical. The color of the bark is greyish white and it is rough in texture. The branches are widespread and takes a pyramid shape. As the tree is evergreen, the leaves are lush green at the above and the lower leaves are dull coriaceous.

 

Next comes the flowers of rudraksha tree. They are conical, ovoid, and quite long, around 1 to 2 cm. rudraksha flowers usually appear in April-May. Finally, appears the rudraksha fruit. It is quite striking that the color of the fruits are blue like the throat of Lord Shiva. When the entire tree is filled with indigo blue fruits, it looks spectacular. The blue color isn’t from pigment, rather it is structural. Usually, rudraksha tree grows faster and within three to four years, the tree starts to bear fruits.

Rudraksha tree grows naturally as farming is quite difficult. The germination takes 1-2 years and that also depends on the humidity of the soil and other factors of climate. The subtropical region is the best ground for growing rudraksha. Countries, like Indonesia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, India, Myanmar, etc. are the growing ground of rudraksha. The environment plays a huge role in making the beads bigger and better. That’s why the Nepalese beads are stronger, bigger and better than the Indonesian counterparts. Though if you wear rudraksha for better health and life, you can get equal result from all types of rudraksha. From spiritual to medicinal purpose, rudraksha has been used from ancient time and even today, its popularity hasn’t been decreased a bit.

 

What is Vastu?

 

Introduction to Vastu Shastra

It is an oldest Indian science of architecture and buildings which we should follow for prosperity. It helps in making a compatible setting or a place to live and work in a most scientific way taking advantage of the benefits present with by nature, its elements and energy fields for enhanced wealth, health, prosperity and happiness. Vastu gives us peace in our life also. It can also be said as an ancient mystic science for designing and building. Vastu Course in kolkata from our Astrology institute can give you a clear idea of this ancient science.

Vastu sastra is a traditional Hindu system of architecture which literally translates to “Science of Architecture”. Some of the texts found that describes layout, principles of design, ground preparation, measurements, space arrangement and geometry of an architecure. Vastu Shastra helps us to make our lives better.

Ancient Vastu combines all the five elements of nature called” Panchbhootas” and balance them with the human life material of the house. The designs are compatible with architecture & nature, the relative functions of various parts of the structure , and directional alignments and symmetry.

 

The Basics Of Vastu

Vastu Shastra is creating a congenial settings or a place to live or work, in most scientific way taking advantages of the benefits bestowed by the five elements called “Paanchbhootas” which helps to enhance prosperity, health, wealth and happiness in an enlightened environment.

The word Paanchbhootas means Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space. There are nine planets in solar system , our planet has life because of the presence of these five elements “and that planet is the Earth where we live.
 

The Directions

In Vastu Sashra regarding direction, level, shape, should be taken into consideration . For example , south-east corner is the seat of the fire , Agnidev. The importance of Vastu at the time of construction and orientation of a building is to save energy & also to have a better house design, which will surely gives comfort in life and many more. Positive Vastu can gives prosperity, good health, and wealth to the house owners/occupiers and their families. So directions of vastu is very important to influence on the human life.

SURYAH SHUKRO MAHOSUNUH RACHARBHANDU BHOJUJO VIDAS| BUDHO BRIHARACHATISHCHETI DISHA CHAIN GRAHAH|| Acording to the shloka , directions of the planets are 1. Surya-Sun means East, 2. Shukra-venus means South-East, 3 . Mangal-Mars means south,4. Yuma means South-East,5. Shani –Saturn means West,6. Candra –Moon means North-East,7. Buddh –Mercury means North, 8. Guru –Jupiter means North-East. We should have the proper knowledge of the proper orientation of all the eight directions .Such as where the sun arises is known as east and where it sets is known as west . When one faces the east direction , towards one’ s left is north and towards ones right is south .The corner where two directions meet obviously is more significant since it combines forces developing from both the directions . So all the eight directions which has been already told have their’s own significance and have own construction. So these eight directions are very much essential to Vastu Sastra.

 

Vastu is essential

It is very essential to determine Vastu directions correctly forms the basics of each construction. one should follow Vastu from the initial level i.e. from choosing a plot, directions of master bedroom, to shift in the house. Everything should be done according to Vastu rules. Since Vastu is a SCIENCE and creates a bridge between man and nature to build a house, gates, temple, palace, porch , pond etc, in proper direction.

Vastu must be cheacked at the time of choosing a plot. At first we have to chose the soil maintaining vastu rules. When and how to construct a house, about all the interiors, how to choose colour and when to shift consult an expert in Vastu. Vastu is such a deep science that can give us vast informations and one can have any doubts cleared with right reasoning. Either a Square or a rectangle shape is always advisable to go in for a site. It should not be cut off in North – East direction.

 
Vastu is unique

Vastu was followed From the ancient time of India and it is a science that has originated from India. Feng shui is an art of invoking energies. And fengshui is originated from China and based on their traditions and culture. Both of this have a same objective, but the principles are very different to each other and the humanity gets benefited by the application of Vastu Sasthra.

STORY IN MAYAMTAM

In “Mayamatam”, Brahma – according to the ancient Indian text, was the creator of universe. He created a special man , who grew very quickly larger and larger and started to eat greedily everything that came in his way, in order to satisfy his amaranthine hunger. He became unmanageable, so big that his shadow fell on earth just like earth was to be under a permanent eclipse. All the deities were in utter difficulty seeing the destruction by this creature. So all went to Lord Brahma and requested him to rescue them from this destruction by giving them a solution.

Brahma realized his mistake. He summoned the AsthaDikapalakas – the Gods of the eight cardinal directions. All came together and subjugated the monster and held it flat against the earth while Brahma jumped on its middle. Unable to bear the weight of all the deities he prayed Lord Brahma for mercy. Lord Brahma pleased by his prayer. He bestowed a boon on him that “while constructing any dwelling units, temples, parks, and water bodies’ etc. people shall worship you, and people who won’t, they will be in worst condition shall suffer poverty, in every activity they do, they will face obstruction.

“The creature was held on the ground in a particular direction.”
