Lord Shiv - The Destroyer

Shiv - The Destroyer - Tamsik

Lord Shiv, also known as Mahesh – the third God of the Hindu trinity,
He denotes peace of human nature and victory over demonic activity,
He the Destroyer, Giver, dominates over `death and destruction’ truly,
The Lord of meditation, mystic, mystery and greatest of all the yogis.

He appears in an ever-meditating ever-happy posture with beauty,
With matted hair holding the flowing Ganga, a crescent moon clearly,
A serpent around his neck, trident in hand and ashes over his body,
His vehicle a bull, symbol of happiness and strength, named Nandi.

Shiv-Ling, a sign of the Lord, is adored instead of him reverently,
His Om Namah Shivaya chant consists but of six syllables only,
This om, na, mah, shi, vaa, ya is chanted to please Him lovingly,
Some texts refer to these five letters as the forms of Shiv truly.

This is part of the knol collection of Lord Shiv by Munindra Misra
