You can imagine the Power of that poison, 'Halahala', that changed the colour of #LordShiva's neck to blue.
#Mahadev could swallow the Poison as he is the Creator of everything(even the Halahala!)& every thing Starts & End with him.
But Why he didn’t Engulf Halahala??
Let’s take an example, If a women is Pregnant(i.e a living creature is inside her)& she swallows poison.
What will happen to the baby? Of course he/she will die.
Similarly, Everything Reside in the Shiva(whether its Knowledge, Music, Medicines, #Vedas, Living or Non-living Creature, Devil, God or even the Entire Universe).
If he did the same, the entire Universe would have been Collapsed due to destructive effect of the Poison.
So, he drank the Poison but didn’t let it enter inside his Body & kept it around Neck.
Hence, SHIVA is also called ‘#Neelkantha’(the blue-throated one; "neela" = "blue", "kantha"= "throat" in #Sanskrit). #Shakti(also known as ‘Prakriti’)helped Shiva in holding the poison.
Prakriti is known as the Mother of all, She can’t let her children die due to the Poison.
Shiva & Shakti are same, Shiva himself known as ‘#Ardhnarishwar’(half male & half female). Snakes loved Shiva so much that they didn’t let him drink the poison alone.
They helped him by drinking the Poison.
Shiva always wears ‘Vasuki’(a Snake) around his neck as the Snakes are cold blooded reptiles & this gives relief to Shiva from the burning sensation of the poison.
How this is relevant to Real Life??
It is said that any problem can be solved with the help of both Men & Women.
If a Problem is as dangerous as ‘Halahala’, then also Husband & Wife can solve it easily.
Both are complimentary to each other, Neither of them is complete without the Other.
Shiva is ‘#Mahakal’ & ‘#Bholenath’, who doesn't need sweets or big temples, just a single leaf(#Belpatra)& LOVE is enough.
