🕉️ One day a #Sculptor was given a rock & asked to carve an image of #God. He tried to imagine a form that would best match with God. If he carved a plant, he would exclude animals & humans. If he carved an animal, he would exclude humans & plants. If he carved a Human, he would exclude plants & animals. If he carved a male, he would exclude the female. If he carved a female, he would exclude all males. God, he believed, was the container of all forms & the only way to create this container was by creating no form. Or maybe God is beyond all forms, but a form is needed to access even this idea.

Overwhelmed by these thoughts, the sculptor left the stone as it was & bowed before it. This was the #lingam the container of #Infinity, the form of the #formless, the tangible that provokes insight into the intangible.
Only humans with his good imagination can visualise this idea of #nature. This idea is contained in the linga. an idea known as sat-chitta-ananda, which means tranquillity (ananda) that follows when the mind (chitta) discovers the #truth of nature & of the human condition (sat) by purging itself of all memories & prejudice.

The name given to God was Shiva, which means the pure one, purified of all forms. "Shiva means that which is transcendent. Shiva means God who cannot be contained by space or time, God who needs no form."
.
#Shiva is Hara, who is indifferent to form, while #Vishnu is Hari, who is appreciative of form.
Shiva is God who breaks free from all forms, having found all of them limited, hence he is the destroyer who is worshipped as the #shivling.

@sadhguru : In the yogic culture, Shiva is not known as a god, but as the #Adiyogi or the first #Yogi – the originator of #YOGA. He was the one who first put this seed into the human mind. According to the yogic lore, over 15,000 years ago, Shiva attained to his full #enlightenment & abandoned himself in an intense ecstatic dance upon the #Himalayas. When his ecstasy allowed him some movement, he danced wildly. When it became beyond movement, he became utterly still.

People saw that he was experiencing something that nobody had known before, something that they were unable to fathom. Interest developed & people came wanting to know what this was. They came, they waited and they left because the man was oblivious to other people’s presence. He was either in intense dance or absolute stillness, completely uncaring of what was happening around him. Soon, everyone left.

Except for seven men.

These seven people were insistent that they must learn what this man had in him, but #LordShiva ignored them. They pleaded & begged him, “Please, we want to know what you know.” Shiva dismissed them & said, “You fools. The way u are, u are not going to know in a million years. There is a tremendous amount of preparation needed for this. This is not entertainment.” So they started preparing. Day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, they prepared. Shiva just chose to ignore them. On a full moon day, after eighty-four years of sadhana, when the solstice had shifted from the summer solstice to the winter solstice-which in this tradition is known as Dakshinayana- the Aadiyogi looked at these seven people and saw that they had become shining receptacles of knowing. They were absolutely ripe to receive. He could not ignore them anymore. They grabbed his attention.

#Meditation with OM (AUM): The Om Mantra or "AUM" is the highest sacred symbol in Hinduism. It is finite as well as infinite. It contains everything from #Vedas. AUM is the representation of the Hindu trinity Brahma, Vishnu & Mahesh. This single word produces the sound & vibration which allows you to feel at one with the universe. It is considered divine & hence it is placed before & after every other #Mantra.

🕉️Kedareshwar Cave Temple is located at #Harishchandragad, a hill fort in Ahmednagar district. The fort is a popular trekking location. Kedareshwar Cave Temple is much different from other #temples. It is situated in a cave and also presence of water all year round makes the temple one of the unique temples not just in #Maharashtra but in India as well.

A #ShivaLinga of about five feet is situated at the centre of the cave. One has to wade through waist deep and ice cold water to reach the #ShivLing. Though there were four pillars surrounding the #Lingam, now there is only one pillar intact. Some believe the pillars to be symbols of yuga or time, namely, Satya, Tretha, Dwapara and the #KaliYuga. The present pillar is said to symbolise the last and final yuga, which is the present one, the Kali Yug. Thus a belief exists that when this last and remaining pillar breaks off, the world will come to an end. The walls of the cave are replete with sculptures and carvings.

Kedareshwar Cave Temple is a must-visit for its unique built and the beliefs surrounding it. Trekkers too can enjoy a visit to the #temple in a fort.

Benefits of Water (Abhishekam) on Shivling:
1) Practice of cleaning oneself: 🌊
The divine Shiva does not need to be cleansed, one who pours water on the #Shivlinga cleanses his own soul. Shiva linga isn’t just a stone or a statue, which acts as a medium of connecting to the Mahadev, but is also an environment purifying device which cleanses the aura of the whole place & absorbs all negativity. It acts like an arc reactor, which disperses this evil energy & converts it into more positivity. But this conversion of energies is an exothermic reaction; i.e. it produces heat while the conversion takes place & so, this needs to cool down to work efficiently, just like an arc reactor. So, devotees pour water and milk to cool the #Shivalingam, & in turn wash away all the heat and help purify the environment even more. For instance, if your head is hot you cannot think & make a proper decision. Only a cool & calm head can make proper decisions.

2) Heat converts into energy:🔥
Another explanation for pouring of milk & water comes from the ancient Samudra Manthan, when Devatas & Asuras were churning the ocean to claim the spoils that came forth. Finally ‘Halahal’ poison came out of the churning, the strongest poison which was capable of killing both Asuras & Devatas alike. To save the world from damnation, Lord Shiva drank the poison & kept it in his throat. This poison produced so much heat that the Devtas performed Ganga Abhishek on #LordShiva & poured holy waters of #Ganga in massive amounts on Lord Shiva. This is also considered as a valid reason that pouring of water on #lingam keeps the heat of 'Halahal' at bay.

3) Purifies Thinking:😇
While you pour water on the #Shivling, you also chant the Mantra of #OmNamahShivaya which involves you in the prayer mentally as well as physically & consequently uplifts your mind & body.

🕉️ #Kedarnath temple is a part of #CharDham's & Panch Kedar in Uttarakhand & one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of #LordShiva in India. Swyambhu Shivling located in the temple is immemorial. This ancient & magnificient temple is located in the Rudra #Himalaya 🏔️ range in Uttarakhand, India. Due to extreme weather conditions, the temple is open only between the ends of April (Akshaya Tritriya) to Kartik Purnima (the autumn full moon, usually November).
.
This #Temple, over a thousand years old is built of massive stone slabs over a large rectangular platform. Ascending through the large gray steps leading to the holy sanctums we find inscriptions in Pali on the steps. Outside the temple door a large statue of the Nandi-Bull stands as guard. The origin of the revered temple can be found by Pandavas and revived by Adi Shankaracharya. 🙏

Kedarnath Temple is a great recognition among devotees. 😇 #Badrinath & Kedarnath in Uttarakhand, these are 2 most prominent sacred pilgrimages, particularly for the Hindus. It is said that the person who takes a trip to Badrinath, without Kedarnath their journey is sterilized & deity of Nara-Narayan wished that, for the welfare of the humanity.

It is cast on the Himalayan peak that incarnation of Lord #Vishnu KedarMahatapaswi Nar and Narayan was austere sage. Lord Shiva was pleased with their worship and therefore appeared revered as God has given to live there permanently. The site is located on Kedar peak in Kedarnath in the #Himalayas. 🗻

#The_Adiyogi_Place 👌🏻
Death and Life are the two legs we walk on. each breath we take and we are one more closer to our ultimate destiny. nothing lasts forever . Only the pure energy. Time or kaal changes everything. There is no black or white. dark or light. only the pure formless unconditioned energy. we come from it . we go back to it. .

Pencil sketch 🎨@usaurobindhan

#Shiva is often depicted with a 3rd eye & called Triyambhkam, Trinetra etc. The third eye is a symbol for Shiva devotees to develop the sight of #knowledge. Our 2 eyes are not always sufficient to judge things & know realities.

Shiva’s 3rd eye represents the rejection of desire. It is the eye that killed Kama as per ShivPurana. Killing of passions & desires is not only important for a sadhak, #yogi & sanyaasi but is also important for a normal man stuck up in his day to day activities. Even a normal man must have Samta(balance), Sadhuta(purity of character) & doordarshita(broader vision) He must not fall pray to desires arising out of women(other than wife), money(other than that which is earned by sweat & purity), fame(other than that which arises out of sattvic actions.

From #Yogic point of view, it is said that when the pineal gland or 'third eye' is awakened, one is able to see beyond space time into time space. It raises the frequency on which 1 operates & moves one into a higher #consciousness. with more research it is being realized that it is essentially a #spiritual antenna the mystical third eye of ‘lord Shiva’. For many eons, the third eye has been seen as a way to reach higher levels of consciousness while still being present in a physical body. This concept of the pineal gland being the “seat of the #soul” or the “spiritual gateway to all realms & all dimensions” This notion of the third eye is #scientific fact. The purpose of this ThirdEye is the key here, which opens the door to the #metaphysical interpretations that ancient wisdom talks about. The #pinealgland is also responsible for secreting 2 extremely vital brain fluids related to our mental health. Those are, melatonin, which is the hormone that induces sleep & serotonin, which is the chemical that helps to maintain a happy, healthy balanced mental state of mind, among other functions.
