Why statue of Natrajan is known as symbol of creation as well as destruction.


Lord shiva is called god of destruction. Lord Shiva is famous for his softness and as well as his direness. He is different from other God. Lord shiva has taken as god of Origin , stability and destruction. From trinity lord shiva is god of destruction. Shivalinga has worshiped as icon of lord shiv for centuries which is associated with worship of lord shiva. In Hindu religion from main 18 mythology there are many stories are related to statue of Natrajan in Skanda Puran and Shiv Puran 

There is a story in Sakanda Puran related to the statue of Natarajan according that once all of the sage residing at forest after leaving all illusions they became egoistic due to their power of tenacity. They started to think that normal persons are petty. Then Lord Shiva who was on Kailash that time saw all this and got an idea to break the ego of the sages. He took the form of beggar and started wandering in that forest. When he was crossing by the residence of that sages they were talking about how they are great than normal persons, and with all this they decided not to worship Lord Shiva. They believed that this universe is surviving due to them. 
When Lord Shiva who was in form of beggar heard all these and interrupted them and started to make them wrong. When the egoistic sages saw all this they decided to punish to Lord Shiva. They made lot of snakes and a devil by the power of their tenacity. They all attacked on Lord Shiva to kill him. After looking all this Shiv took a very different form of dancing and killed all the devils and snakes. In Statue of Natrajan has shown that Lord Shiva is surrounded by snakes, after looking the admirable form of Lord Shiva sages ego has broken within a second. They all understood the dignity of Lord Shiva. This statue of Natrajan is known as symbol of creation as well as destruction.

The advent of Nagas and Garurs


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


The daughter of King Daksh who were wedded to Rishi Kashyap were named as Kadru and Vneeta. Both the princesses were extremely beautiful and polite. After marriage both lived in perfect harmony.
Kadru gave birth to one thousand strong and powerful Nagas and out of them eight are very famous in the world , such as Vaski Nag, Taksh Nag, Shesh Nag & Kali Nag etc. The second wife Vineeta gave birth to two sons naming Arun and Garur. Garur in his early age went to Himalaya for meditation of God Vishnu. One day when Kashyap Rishi (Sage) was not at home, both the sisters were watching the scene of early rising sun. In the meantime they started discussing the colours of the horses of the Chariot of the sun. According to Kadru the colour of the horses was black while according to Vineeta it was white. Both were adamant on their statements . At last there was a bet between the two that he who would lose the bet shall serve as servant to the other. In the evening when Kadru told to her sons about the bet they said, “Mother” Vineeta is right , the colour of the horses is white.
On hearing this Kadru became much worried and said that the decision of our bet would be decided by tomorrow’s rising sun and she would lose the bet, she would have to serve Vineeta as servant through out her life.Seeing the worriness of their mother they said, “Don’t worry Mother, tomorrow at the time of rising sun we shall wrap the horses of the Chariot of the sun as all of us are black except brother Vasuki Nag and in this way the white colour of the horses shall become black and you will win the bet.
Next morning both the sisters waited for the sun to rise and prove their bet. When the Chariot of the Sun God appeared the colour of the horses looked black due to clinging of the black nagas round the horses. On seeing this Vineeta became astonished and since then she began to serve her sister as servant.After completing his meditation when Garur came back home after a long time. His mother asked him about his Tapasya (Meditation) then Garur happily told her mother that he had completed his meditation successfully and Lord Vishnu after getting pleased with my meditation blessed me to remain with him always as his VAHAN (Carrier) . the mother became very happy and embracing him blessed. But Garur seeing the melancholy face of his mother asked the reason of his gloominess. Vineeta frisky tried to avoid the causes of her gloominess but on the insistence of Garur she told him the whole tale of her sadness that how she had to serve her sister as a servant.
Garur told his mother that she had not lost the bet but Nagas have cheated you. They have insulted you and I shall take the revenge. It was not an ordinary event for him but a bolt from the blue. He could not tolerate such an insult of his mother and began burning with anger. Vineeta the mother of Garur could very well understand the feelings of her son and tried to pacify him by saying that they must be the rewarded of her misdeeds in the previous life. But Garur saw the helplessness of his mother, with which instead of cooling him his anger increased. Garur due to extreme anger could not decide what to do. At the same time Dev Rishi Narad appeared there, Garur welcomed him. Naradji asked Garur about his perplexity. Then Garur narrated the whole sad tale how his step mother and step brothers cheated his mother and requested him to show the way, what to do . Naradji advised him to go to Lord Vishnu and ask him the solution of the problem. Garur at once went towards Himalayas and started meditation to please Lord Vishnu. After his hard meditation Lord Vishnu was pleased and appeared before him and asked the reason of his hard meditation. Garur seeing God before him became extremely happy and said My Lord if you are really pleased with my meditation then bless me that since today Nag should have no effect on me. God Vishnu was pleased with the hard meditation of Garur so he blessed him with his desired demand. From that very day the enmity between Garurs and Nagas started.
In ‘Treta Yug’ ( In Hindu Mythology the life of the planet earth is divide into Yugs, Sat Youg, Treta Yug, Dwapar Yug And Kal yug) when the cruelty of Rakshas (Evil Souls) went beyond limit the God Vishnu incarnated in the form of Rama, the son of Maharaja Dashrath. During the fourteen years of exile Ravana the King of Lanka stole his wife in a deceitful way and there was severe battle between the two. During the battle evil Ravana used a weapon called Nag Pash and Ram along with his army were caught in a serpent net.
In the last days of Dwapar Yug when the time of Kali Yug came then Kali youg requested Maharaja Prikshat to give a seat to reside. King Prikhsat did not want that Kal Yug be given seat on the eatable items, so he offer him seat on Gold or Silver. After getting the permission Kali Yug sat on the golden crown of the King Prikhsat. Due to the effect of the Kali Yug , the king while roaming in the Jungle picked up a dead snake and put it round the neck of a meditating hermit. Due to this unholy act of king , the penance of the sage was disturbed and he cursed that the same snake shall bite the man who had put it on him within seven days and the man shall die.
In the evening when the king Prikhshat put off his crown, the whole happening came to his mind, he instantly went to the hermit repented for his curse which he had given unknowingly.
After the death of the king Parikhsat when his son Prince Janmayjai became king, he in order to take revenge against Nagas managed a “NAG YAG” so that all the Nags are killed. Under the influence of the mantras the Nags themselves came and fell into Havan Kund and got burnt. At that time Vasuki Nag requested his step sister Jarat Karu and brother-in –law hermit Jarat to prevent that killing of Nagas by asking their influential offsprings. On this way the Nag Yag was stopped and still alive Nags were saved.


After the ‘Nag Yag’ of King Janmayjae of Hastinapur the saved Nags were highly frightened and in order to save their lives they fled to safe and hilly places. In this way some reached Bhadarwah. They liked this place and decided to make it their abode. In our religious books it is said that the name of this place was Bhaderkashi before the coming of Nagas. The place where they settled in Bhadarkashi was village Gosht which now is called Gatha. There is a grand temple of Vasuki Nag and a cluster of temples of other gods and goddesses and the houses of the priests. In those days there was a cluster of very big Deodar trees there. There lived a well off family around the villages of Gatha. The herd of cows of that family used to come to take rest in that cluster of Deodar trees. Suddenly thereon milking cow started giving less milk in the evening. When this process continued for three four days and nobody could guess the reason. Then one day the oldest lady of the family said that she would go herself to look after the herd. That day the lady concentrated on that very cow. At noon when the herd reached Gosht the very cow stood near an old tree. The tree was hollow inside. There was a hole coming from that hollow space. When the cow stood near the hole then a Nag came out of the hole and started drinking the milk. The old
lady was seeing all this very carefully. The Nag after drinking the milk again went back into the hole. In the evening when the lady reached home she narrated the whole story to her family members. Then the son say that lady asked her what could be the solution of this problem. The old lady told them that the colour and shape of that snake was not of an ordinary snakes but a very pious soul and worth worshiping, so we should also treat him as a pious guest with honour and respect. After that day the old aldy would bring a bowl of milk in the morning and evening and place it near that hole of the tree with great sincerity. She would invite her pious guest. The God Nag would appear from that hole drink the milk gladly and go back into the hole. This process went on for some time, one day god Nag told her in dream that he liked the place and people of this place and wanted to live there. He requested that the old deodar tree in which he resides be cut and a temple be got built there for his residence. In the morning the old lady narrated her dream to her seven sons. The faithful and obeying sons cut the tree and built a temple there as per order & wish of their mother. After that on one auspicious day a grand Hawan was organized and among the recitation of Ved Mantras the Nag Devta was installed in that temple. The Naga who was installed in the temple was no other than Vasuki Nag Ji. Many other Naga’s along with the Nag Vasuki came there.
Nagas lived very peacefully in Bhadarwah for a long time, but when Garur came to know about the presence of Nags, then Garur followed them and started killing them for his food.

The daily routine life of Nagas was very badly effected. Vasuki Nag Ji became upset and started thinking to find out some solution. One day Vasuki nag Ji called Garur. Garur respected his step brother immensely because he know that there was no hand of Vasuki Nag Ji in cheating his mother because his colour was white and all other Nagas were black. So he did not consider Vasuki Nag Ji as his enemy. When Garurji came to Vasuki Nag ji he complimented his elder brother asked the reason for calling

him.Vasuki Nag ji also welcomed his brother with great love and respect and brought into his notice the anxiety of Nagas and requested him to stop eating Nagas. Then Garur told him that he could not do so till his revenge was completed. He was helpless. Vasuki Nag told him that if a Nag himself presented to him for his food would you stop disturbing them. Then Garur said that he was ready to accept that proposal. Then a treaty was agreed upon that one Nag wearing a red cloth would go to decided flat stone and present himself as Garur’s food.
Jimet Vahan lived in the period when Lord Shiva resided on the Kailash mountain. In those days Lord Shiva wedded (Married) the daughter of King Himpat son of Brahmaji daughter Parvati. Lord Shiva had himself told this tale to Parvatiji. He told her that your father Himpat is not only “Guru” ( teacher) of mountains but is also my Guru. While describing about their mountainous region the whole of Seoj Dhar area and east and west of “Devkhatar” was ruled by the king Jimut Katu the king of Vidiyadharas ( a particular community) the father of Jimut Vahan. In Vasuki Puran there is a verse which tells that area was ruled by Vidya Dharas and they made that area as heaven with their Penance ( Tapasya) and had created “Kalp” tree which is found only in heaven. The Kalp tree possess the power to give whatever you demand from it.
King Jimut Katu prayed to Kalap tree and got his brave, selfless son “Jimut Vahan”. When king Jimut Katu became old he handed over the reign of Kingdom to his son-Jimut Vahan and went for Penance(tapasya) to a lonely place in Seoj Dhar. Jimut Vahan being obedient made a hut for them and served his parents whole heartedly. One day due to some urgent work he came to Bhaderkashi city.
In those days Vasuki Nag ji ruled Bhaderkashi and Jimut Vahan became a royal guest there. One day while roaming he came towards village sartingal. On the way there was a house of an old lady. There came a sweet fragrance of breakfast also a sound of weeping. He became perplexed because such sumptuous food on some fairs or some auspicious occasion and there is no similarity between such food and weeping. As he could not understand the reason, so he thought it better to go inside the house and find out the truth. When he went inside the house he saw that an old lady was preparing very sumptuous food and simultaneously weeping bill sly. The old lady had become an embodiment of happiness and sadness. When Jimut Vahan asked her the reason of all that, she told that there was none to solve her anxiety. No body had the power and will to solve my problem in the world. The old lady told him that their king Vasuki nag ji had made an agreement with Garur that every day a Nag would go for his diet. According to the treaty one Nag after taking bath and wearing red clothes had to go to a particular flat rock from where Garur carries him in his beak and eats, some where . Today is the turn of my only son Shankhchur. He is my only caretaker in this world and he is being snatched from me. In this helplessness I am preparing last food for him and weeping on my bad luck.
Jimut Vahan was highly impressed by the sad tale narrated by the old lady. He thought in his mind that he could save the life of old lady’s son by sacrificing himself in his place. Deciding so when he got up to go out, then the old lady forced him to eat some food Babrus. After eating some leaves he went out of the house. He took bath and wearing red cloth round him went towards the fixed flat stone about which the old lady had told him. He wanted that he should reach the place before Shankhchur gets ready and reaches there. Immediately wearing the red cloth he laid down on the stone. When Garur saw that a Nag had laid down on the stone, he flew to that place. Seeing Garur near him Jimut Vahan became very happy in his mind but Garur was perturbed, because that day Nag was neither frightened nor
wept, instead their was great satisfaction and happiness on his face. It was a new and thoughtful event for Garur in his life. Seeing this condition of Garur Jimut Vahan said, “ Why are you dealing. I am ready for your service for a long time. Garur who was a bit unnerved picked up Jimut Vahan in his beak and flew top a distant place to eat his prey peacefully.
As soon as Garur Ji took his flight the Nag Shankhchur gave a loud cry and requested to leave the person whom he was carrying because he was not a Nag and it was his turn. But by that time Garur had flown carrying Jimut Vahan. Shankhchur also ran after him crying loudly that was not a Nag and it was his turn. Garur also heard the cries and reaching at a high place, he placed his prey down on the ground. Jimut Vahan then said, “Why you are not eating me and satisfying your hunger”? Hearing this ! he started eating him. Garur had first started eating him when Shankhchur reached there and told him that he was not a Nag so please don’t eat him. He is an alien prince and it was my turn today. When this prince came to know from my mother that I am the only son of her, he took pity on me and resolved to sacrifice himself in my place. On the other hand Jimut vahan was insisting to eat him. On hearing the version of both of them Garur felt guilty and thought how both of them being living creatures are ready to sacrifice themselves for each other and it is me who is doing sin for my personal benefit. Thinking so Garur flew towards sky Shankhchur started treating the wounds of Jimut Vahan. Just then Garur came back from sky with holy water(Amrit) sprinkled it over the wounds of Jimut Vahan and he became completely healthy. Garur then embraced Jimut Vahan and said that he was highly impressed with the spirit of your sacrifice and greatness and want to give you something as a reward. Jimut Vahan very politely requested him that if he really wanted to give him( Jimut Vahan) something then I with a great hope demand that in future you would not kill and eat Nagas. Garur was highly impressed with the supreme selfless sacrifice of Jimut Vahan and his every uttering was a store of knowledge. He (Garur) embracing Jimut Vahan promised him that he would not kill and eat Nagas in future. On hearing the promise of Garur there was no limit of happiness of Jimut Vahan & Shankhchur. After giving this boon Garurji disappeared in sky.
The place where Garur , Jimut Vahn and Shankhchur met each other that place is at about 1km height from Sungli village. When the procession of Kailash Yatra passed through that place, take rest there and pay obeisance to Jimut Vahan in memory of his supreme sacrifice . There is pond of water which is still called Shankhchur Talai(Pond). There is a small temple of Jimut Vahan there now called Jaslu Devta in Bhadarwah.

About Kailash Parvat where our guru and lord Shiva live

यह कोई नहीं जानता कि भगवान कैसे दिखते हैं. यह मनुष्य की अवधारणाएं हैं कि भगवान का रंग रूप किसी विशेष प्रकार का है. उस परमात्मा रूपी रूह को पहचानना और उस तक पहुंचना केवल मुश्किल ही नहीं बल्कि एक मात्र नामुमकिन है लेकिन एक रास्ता है जिसे पार कर मनुष्य भगवान तक पहुंच सकता है

shivji kailash parvat

लोगों का मानना है कि भगवान शिव, जो भोले शंकर के नाम से पुराणों में विख्यात हैं वे आज भी हमारे बीच हैं लेकिन उनतक पहुंचना आसान नहीं है. भोले शंकर आज भी अपने परिवार के साथ विशाल व कठोर ‘कैलाश पर्वत’ पर रहते हैं लेकिन अनतक पहुंच कर उनके दर्शन करना नामुमकिन सा है.

पुराणों व शास्त्रों के अनुसार कैलाश पर्वत के आसपास कुछ ऐसी शक्तियां हैं जो उसके वातावरण में समाई हुई हैं. क्या आप जानते हैं कि आजतक इस कठोर एवं रहस्यमयी पर्वत की चोटी पर कोई ना पहुंच पाया सिवाय एक तिब्बती बौद्ध योगी मिलारेपा के जिन्होंने 11वीं सदी में इस यात्रा को सफल बनाया था.

शिव के घर, कैलाश पर्वत से जुड़े ऐसे अनेक तथ्य हैं जिनपर महान वैज्ञानिकों द्वारा शोध किये जा रहे हैं लेकिन ऋषि मुनियों के अनुसार उस भोले के निवास के रहस्य को भांप पाना किसी साधारण मनुष्य के वश में नहीं है.

kailash parvat

वैज्ञानिकों द्वारा किये गए एक शोध के मुताबिक दुनिया में एक्सिस मुंड नामक अवधि है. यह एक्सिस मुंड आकाश और पृथ्वी के बीच संबंध का एक बिंदु है जहां चारों दिशाएं मिल जाती हैं. वैज्ञानिकों के अनुसार इस एक्सिस मुंड पर अलौकिक शक्ति का प्रवाह होता है और आप उन शक्तियों के साथ संपर्क कर सकते हैं. यह बिंदु कुछ और नहीं बल्कि कैलाश पर्वत ही है जहां शिव की कृपा से अनेक शक्तियों का प्रवाह होता है.

कैलाश पर्वत की वास्तविक विशेषताओं की बात करें तो इस विशाल पर्वत की ऊंचाई 6714 मीटर है. ऊंचाई के संदर्भ में कैलाश पर्वत दुनिया भर में मशहूर माउंट एवरेस्ट से ऊंचा नहीं है लेकिन इसकी भव्यता ऊंचाई में नहीं, बल्कि उसके आकार में है. यदि आप कैलाश पर्वत को ध्यान से देखें तो इसकी चोटी की आकृति बिलकुल शिवलिंग जैसी है जो वर्षभर बर्फ की सफेद चादर से ढका रहता है.

कैलाश पर्वत की चोटी के बाद यदि हम इसके भूभाग को देखें तो यह चार महान नदियों से घिरा है. सिंध, ब्रह्मपुत्र, सतलज और कर्णाली, यह सभी नदियां इस महान एवं पवित्र पर्वत को छू कर गुजरती हैं. नदियों के साथ-साथ कैलाश पर्वत दो सरोवरों को भी अपनी अस्मिता में बांधता है. मानसरोवर तथा राक्षस झील, ऐसे सरोवर जो दुनिया भर में अपनी विभिन्नता के लिए प्रसिद्ध हैं, यह दोनों सरोवर इस पर्वत की शान को और भी बढ़ाते हैं.

kailash parvat2

कैलाश पर्वत के बारे में तिब्बत मंदिरों के धर्म गुरु बताते हैं कि कैलाश पर्वत के चारों ओर एक अलौकिक शक्ति का प्रवाह होता है. यह शक्तियां कोई आम नहीं बल्कि अद्भुत  हैं. कहा जाता है कि आज भी कुछ तपस्वी इस शक्तियों के माध्यम से आध्यात्मिक गुरुओं के साथ संपर्क करते हैं.

केवल कैलाश पर्वत ही नहीं बल्कि इस पर्वत से सटे 22,028 फुट ऊँचे शिखर और उससे लगे मानसरोवर को ‘कैलाश मानसरोवर तीर्थ’ कहते हैं. यहां उपस्थित ऋषि बताते हैं कि कैलाश मानसरोवर उतना ही प्राचीन है जितनी प्राचीन हमारी सृष्टि है. कैलाश पर्वत की तरह ही कैलाश मानसरोवर के वातावरण में भी कुछ शक्तियों का प्रवाह होता है. यह एक प्रकार की अलौकिक जगह है जहां पर प्रकाश तरंगों और ध्वनि तरंगों का समागम होता है जो कि ‘ॐ’ की प्रतिध्वनि करता है.

कहा जाता है कि गर्मी के दिनों में जब मानसरोवर की बर्फ़ पिघलती है तो एक अजब प्रकार की आवाज़ सुनाई देती है. स्थानीय लोगों का मानना है कि यह मृदंग की आवाज़ है. मान्यता यह भी है कि कोई व्यक्ति मानसरोवर में एक बार डुबकी लगा ले तो वह रुद्रलोक पहुंच सकता है

शिव गुरु के तीन सूत्र ( Three formulas for SHIV GURU)


, , , , ,

There are three formulas for them who take SHIV JI as GURU. These formulas are mentioned below:


1. दया मांगना ( Ask for Mercy) :- हे शिव आप मेरे गुरु है मै आपका / आपकी शिष्य / शिष्या हूँ, मुझ शिष्य /शिष्या पर दया कीजिये ( O Shiv ! You are my master, Please have mercy on me disciple )


2.चर्चा करना ( Discussion):- शिव को गुरु के रूप में सबको बताना . (Tell to SHIVA as master)


3. जाप करना (chanting) :- 108 मोतियों की माला का जाप करना। हर मोती पे नमः शिवाय कहते हुए। (Chant of 108 beads. Each bead on Namaha Shivaya saying.)


How r u?


Om Namah Shivay

Om Namah Shivay

People have been asking me why we do Om Namah Shivaya chanting… and why we do it 108 times.

Namah, read backwards is manah, the mind which is directed outwards and confused, dull, etc… you turn the mind inwards, it becomes Namah, and when you go inwards, what do you find? Shiva! The embodiment of Bliss, peace and tranquility… So we chant the Om Namah Shivaya to turn ourselves inwards to the Bliss and tranquility of the Being…

Other than this there are 3 more reasons:

1. Like we take a bath everyday (hopefully:)), and that cleans our physical body, we need to take a “mantrasnaan”, a bath with mantras, this rejuvenates and cleanses our subtle body.

2. There are 12 zodiac signs and 9 planets. As the 9 planets move through the 12 signs, their positions affect us either negatively or positively. Chanting the Om Namah Shivaya 108 times (12 x 9 = 108 duh!), nullifies any negative effects and enhances positive effects of the planets on us! You will suddenly find yourself becoming very lucky and notice that things that were troubling you will simply vanish

3. Chanting Om Namah Shivaya is sooooooo nice!!!

Make this a part of your Sadhana everyday… it doesn’t take more than about 10 minutes or so… and you will really feel very nice

Happy Chanting!
