Lord Shiva -Har Har Mahadev -Om Namah Shivayah- Bhole Nath
*************************************************

Dear Everybody,
I want your view regarding to the national holidays. I am explain national holidays of our country. There are 3 national holiday and my opinion is that there are not need of them. Maha Shivratri Occasion must be declared as national holiday include them.
I want to say to you everyone that there are many occasion celebrated in India. But the Mahashivratri occasion is totally different than the others. My opinion is that Mahashivratri Occasion must be National Holiday.
In India many holidays are celebrated like as Gandhi Jayanti, Ambedkar Jayanti, Guru Nanak Jayanti, idd, cristmas day, etc. that are good but not significant more than the Mahashivratri Festival. Indian Government must be declare it as National Holiday. I want to know your opinion regarding to it.So, please keep the holiday at that day. This is only my forecasting and not warning anything else.
My dear friends, please give me your comments, I am waiting for your views more as soon as possible.

Har Har Mahadev - Bam Bam Bhole - Om Namah Shivay

What is means of God?

Everybody knows that what is means of God, somebody knows that God means BHAGWAAN but I want to explain something different about it. If Brahma is the creator, Vishnu the preserver, Shiva is the quintessential destroyer. His duty is to destroy all the world at the end of creation and dissolve them into nothingness.

G:- Generation of Universe ( Lord Brahma )

O:- Operator of Universe ( Lord Vishnu )

D:- Destroy of Universe ( Lord Shiva )

Powerful God ( Lord Shiva - Bhole Nath )

Shiva is 'shakti' or power, Lord Shiva is the destroyer, the most powerful god of the Hindu pantheon and one of the godheads in the Hindu Trinity. Known by many names - Mahadeva, Mahayogi, Pashupati, Nataraja, Bhairava, Vishwanath, Bhava, Bhole Nath.

None gave him birth, He knows no Lord. None rules Him in the world, nor yet controls. No features mark Him out, yet cause He is. Prime cause of that which steers, the senses five, the soul within. "Shvetashvattara Upanishad."Shiva! The name, the word itself seems to come with so much aplomb to the Hindu mind. Images flood the mind’ eye. The savage one; The handsome one. The fierce one; The ardent lover of Parvati. One who wears snakes for ornaments; One who holds the Ganges on his head. One who destroys; One who dances. Wearer of leopard skin; Wielder of cymbals. One with long matted hair; One who wears the moon on his head! Worshiped in the form of a phallic symbol; Worshiped for the power of his third eye...


Shiva is one of the Hindu trinity that comprises the creator Brahma, the protector Mahavishnu, and the godhead Shiva whose primary responsibility is maintaining the life cycle. Shiva is the only godhead who is forever in deep meditation, totally absorbed in contemplation in His abode, Kailaasa mountain in the great Himaalaya.On the other hand Lord Shiva is all compassion when it came to saving the world from the serpent Vaasuki’s poison during the amritamanthana. Vaasuki, used as a churning rope, was so tired and sick from the repeated action of churning that he vomited the most potent poison into the ocean of milk.Fearing the destruction of the world through this poisoning, Shiva immediately drank the poison. He Himself would have succumbed to the poison were it not for the timely intervention by Paarvati, His consort. Paarvati held Shiva’s throat tightly preventing entry of the poison into His body.

Shiva is worshipped as a lingam to help us contemplate the need to think of Him as the most basic and essentially formless one. Shiva is commonly portrayed as an ascetic with a serpent around His neck, vibhooti (sacred ash) adorning His face and His essentially bare body, a trishul (trident) in one of His hands and a kamandalu (container of water for use in religious practices) in an other hand, and a damaruga (small drum) in yet another hand.

  19. Lord Shiva Is The Supreme Parabrahma Along With His Consort The Aadiparashakti Is The Most Powerful And Supreme Of All GODS. I Have Noticed That Some Pages In Facebook ( Lord Siva-One of the Greatest Vaishnavas ) Are A Great Insult To Our Lord Shiva. The Gaudiya Vaishnava's And Their Cult ISKCON Insults Lord Shiva By Calling Him A Demi-God, A Devotee Of Krishna Etc Etc... Wonder Why All Are Stooping So Low As To Insult The Powerful Bholenath. dear Devotees Please Help In This Case.

    Also Please Note That It Is Wrongly Understood That Lord Shiva Would Have Been Harmed By The Poison Of Vasuki. The All Powerful Lord Shiva Will Not Be Effected By The Poison. Also The Basmasura And The Mohini Episodes Are Created Just To Humiliate The Supreme Lord Shiva. There Is Nobody More Powerful Yet Gentle Than Lord Shiva.

    || OM Parabrahma Shivayaa Namahaa ||


    Lord Shiva Is My Everything, Without Lord Shiva I Am Nothing :-)

    || OM NAMAH SHIVAYAA ||
    || OM AADIPARASHAKTIYE NAMAHAA ||
    || OM GAM GANAPATHAYE NAMAHAA ||
    || OM KATHIKEYAYE NAMAHAA ||

    || OM SHIVAA PARIVAARAAYE NAMAHAA ||
