Shiva... God of Forgiveness?|
Do not continue living in a cocoon of your making! Ignorance is never a
bliss! In modern times we need to keep pace with life... we need to understand the true purport of the sacred
scriptures... the teachings of the enlightened beings... the doctrine of Bhagavad Gita given to mankind by
Lord Krishna in Mahabharata!
If in the times of Lord Krishna... the war was fought with bows and
arrows... does it mean we fight our neighbors today with bows and arrows! No sacred Scripture can ever be
understood literally! We need dive deep into the bottomless pit of Wisdom to gather the hidden pearls of
wisdom... the sayings that can never be understood otherwise.
There has never been one by the name of Shiva in the history of mankind.
Lord Shiva in Hinduism is an attribute... an attribute that signifies the power of absolute control... the
power of death in the Cosmos! Ultimately it is Lord Shiva that controls the balance in the cosmic system!
Apart from lord Shiva there has never been anyone like lord Vishnu or Brahma!
Brahma in Hinduism is the creative attribute of God Almighty! Brahma is
considered the Creator of the Cosmos... the Creator of all human beings nay living beings! Vishnu is the
preserver... the maintainer of the system! Lord Shiva (aka Mahesh) is that attribute of God Almighty that
makes the system go round! Shiva is part of Hindu Trinity of Gods.
We pray to Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh not out of fear but for the
wonderful creation... the mighty Cosmos created by God Almighty! Every human being nay every living being
owes its existence to God Almighty! Human being... the highest manifest stage in the cosmic life cycle makes
it a practice to pay obeisance to God Almighty as and when possible!
God Almighty is not the form of human beings... it is pure celestial
power much beyond the comprehension of most human beings! It is only when one gains enlightenment does the
complete picture of the Cosmos and God Almighty emerges before one! Gaining enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)
and finally salvation (moksha) is the end goal of life... the ultimate goal of life for all human
Everything in the cosmic system is governed by the doctrine of karma. As
we sow so shall we reap... nothing less or more so says the law of karma! Every soul atman is governed by the
absolute law of karma in every manifestation... in every form of life! To think of Lord Shiva as a human
being... to think that God Almighty plays active role in his creation is a misnomer.
God Almighty always acts as a Dhrista (onlooker)! This aspect has been
made explicitly clear in the sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by Sri
Krishna! Whether we believe it or not is the sole prerogative of every individual human being! To believe or
not to believe is the biggest question that haunts most human beings!
Every single narrative... every ritual is simply praising an attribute of
God Almighty! The goal of every human being always remains reaching the end of the journey... the 8.4
millionth manifestation when human beings gain enlightenment and finally salvation. Reaching the stage of
enlightenment means reaching the end of spiritual pursuit!
Having reached the Mount Everest of spiritual pursuit... nowhere else to
go further... the liberated soul finally gains entry into the abode of God... into the kingdom of God (aka
Vaikuntha in Hinduism).
In our day-to-day life if we commit a sin we always get many chances of
repealing the same! In the house of God there is ample space for forgiveness at every stage of life! The
whole cosmic system acts like a massive computer system! Whatever be our karma... accordingly shall be the
result! If the residual balance of karma of present manifestation demands our taking birth in the house of a
laborer in next manifestation... we cannot manifest the form of a prince!
We simply cannot expect mangoes to grow on a guava tree! Life in the
cosmic system is not complex. It is only when human beings dominated by their bloated ego, the wanton desires
and greed for materialistic riches mix it with their spiritual yearnings... the whole process appears
complex! In present-day it almost seems impossible to reach the status of Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus
Christ or Prophet Mohammed!
In the spiritual remain traveling the spiritual path... the uncharted
territory is difficult but not impossible! Whatever be our sin we always get chances to repent provided we do
it sincerely and seriously! Veda Vyasa... The writer of the sacred Bhagavad Gita was a criminal of the
highest order! He committed unpardonable sins beyond count!
The preaching of a saint made him change overnight! He realized his
fault. He finally became a spiritual saint of the highest order... the writer of the script of the sacred
Bhagavad Gita! Veda Vyasa did not produce the sacred Bhagavad Gita but only wrote the script that was in
circulation through the word of mouth... Since the time of Vedas!
May God bless all!

slept with the pros women later he realized that he should have gone to temple his searched the women's
entire but there was not a single Shiva statues so he closed his eyes and imaged lord Shiva in a direction
where the pros women was sleeping his offered flowers to her and lord Shiva accepted it it a irrelevant place
and situation and the flowers thrown on the sleeping women fell on lords feet this made Parvathi very angry
when she questioned lord Shiva he said who ever comes to me in any form or situation but devotional offers
prayers i shall accept it No Hindu gods are witness for such kind of love and
