…none other than beloved Lord Shiva.
Shiva, as mentioned by Sadhguru of Isha Foundation in many of his talks, means “that which is not”.
We are always running after “that which is”…money, fame, relationships… But Shiva doesn’t need any of these.
He happily accepts the ashes from burnt dead bodies. How many of us can?
Everybody loves the full moon in all its beauty, but Shiva has the crooked crescent on his matted hair.
Few like slimy, creepy, crawly snakes, but Shiva adores them. Swami Chinmayananda once likened the snake to the ego – it is full of poison, from it emerges hatred, jealousy, fear and anxiety. It is always frightened and ever ready to attack. But Lord Shiva? Oh, he’s tamed the ego, and wrapped it around his neck!
And if he opens his third eye, all ego is decimated.
