Vedas and Puranas declare Shiva or Rudra as the Greatest Tattwa, The supreme god, The reason and the Cause of all the Effects of the Universe and they have described Shiva as greatest ultimate God. So SHIVA is the power of all the energy factor of the universe. Vedas sing more eulogies of Shiva Rudra. Even from the very first Shloka Of Rig Veda they started Singing praises of Rudra Shiva and his major eight forms which covers entire universe with five elements and Pran, Atman and Pradhan. It starts with praises of Shiva Rudra from very first Shloka, “Agni milite Purohitam” , (Agni is Shiva or Rudras Form one of his eight Vedic manifestations). There are several Suktas dedicated only to him. In Rig Veda and in fact same is the case with other three Vedas, Rudra Shiva is glorified everywhere and even whole Upanishads are dedicated to him only.
Shiva is the Lord of the Lord. Lord Shiva, Mahadeva is perhaps the most complex of Hindu deity. He is the Auspicious one (Shiva), The terrific one (Rudra), Lord of the Dance (Nataraja), Lord of the universe (Vishwanatha), He is the Destroyer and the Transformer. He is limitless, transcendent, unchanging, formless and also the one without beginning or without end.
Shivas third eye is a symbol of enlightenment or moksha. In the Indian tradition, it is referred to as the jnana-chaksu, the eye of knowledge, which is the seat of the 'teacher inside' or antar-guru. The third eye is the ajna chakra (sixth chakra) also known as brow chakra or brow centre. This is commonly denoted in Indian iconography with a dot, eye or mark on the forehead of deities or enlightened beings, such as Shiva, the God of Destruction. In Hinduism, it is believed that the opening of Shiva's third eye causes the eventual destruction of the universe.! Jai Shri Neelkanth Mahadev ~ Jai Triyambakeshwaraya Namah Via @instashivatribe
