महादेव, शंकर, भोलेनाथ
कई है उनके नाम
उनके आशीर्वाद से
होते है हमारे सारे काम
उनकी जटाओं में गंगा है बसती
उनकी अर्धांगिनी है माँ पार्वती
पहने वह होते है रुद्राक्ष की माला
उनके गले का वर्ण है गहरा नीला
उनका घर है पर्वत कैलाश
हमारे बुरे विचार का करते है वह विनाश
उनके नाम से गायब होता है डर
विश्व को बचाया था उन्होने पीकर जहर
नंदी पर करते है वह सवारी
बहुत सरल है उनसे करनी यारी
डमरू के ताल पे करते है वह नाच
हम पर कभी वह नहीं आने देते है आंच
सारी जगह पर उनको ही पाती
उनकी आँखें मुझे बहुत है भाती
पसंद मुझे बहुत है भोलेनाथ
सदैव उनको है रहना हमारे साथ

मेरे प्यारे भोलेनाथ
मैं प्यार करता हूँ शिव जी से
वह पिता है गणेशा के
उनके भक्त है बहुत सारे
वह पति है पार्वती के।
उनके गले में होता है नाग
और डमरू होता है हांतों में
गंगा होती है उनकी जटाओं में
चाँद चमकता है उनके माथे पे।
भोलेनाथ है बहुत अच्छे
बैठते है वह ध्यान में
पर नज़र होती है उनकी हम सब पे।

Jai Shri Hari!
Lord Shiva is called Bholenath, the one who is easily pleased!
(I believe in both of them as the same divine - HariHar!)
What's your experience with lord Shiva?
Thank you in advance.
Om Namah Shivaya!
Har Har Mahadev!
Jai Sri Hari bhai. You can never worship Mahadev thinking he is easily pleased. It’s the same Mahadev who moved his toe to crush Ravana under a mountain and yet melted when he sung Shiva Tandava Stotram. It’s the same Mahadev who pulled out one hair to create Bhairava and yet wept in agony for Sati. You can only love him because he wants you to. The eternal Yogi, the first guru, the king with no crown. Only his love can tell you the meaning of love.
Well, we all love Bhagwan so much, so in order to express your love for Bhagwan. What is your favourite bhav(emotion or feeling) that connects you with Bhagwan instantly?
Jai Sri Hari 🙏
Jai Shri Hari!
The only emotion that connects me to Bhagwan instantly is Loneliness.
Because I am never alone, Mahadev is always with me. I can feel it. I can experience it every moment when I think I am lonely.
He is always with me and I have faith that he will forever be with me.
Har Har Mahadev!
When I was child, I read somewhere that to love Bhagwan is to imbibe his values that he stands for in your being.. is the most beautiful way of loving God. Here, we all love Bhagwan dearly, have you imbibed or thinking to imbibe one of the virtue of Bhagwan in your being. What is that single most virtue close to your heart? Do share yourself.
Being fit, attractive and always smiling😉😉❤️❤️
Have you ever felt a feeling of love and oneness with inanimate things like wall or a chair as you may feel for trees and river? How can this feeling be developed?
It's a journey before you reach this state of consciousness you will see massive transformation in one's consciousness. I believe it's not a one moment when you start to feel love for all animate and inanimate beings or see divine in all things. Keep walking and see how it unfolds, if it is to. It's only with grace that one can be blessed with such state.
Jai Sri Hari 🙏
All tantra as well as Puranas refer to Lord as Bhaktisulabh - easy to attain by devotion, bhavgamyam - attained by emotions.
But is this really true?
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhamsa lived such intense devotion for so many years... But nothing happened. Only when he was about to kill himself did Devi manifest.
But after Bhairavi Brahmani taught him tantra (by telling him only then he'll be able to get Her darshan regularly so as to believe his experience to be real), he got tanmayta with Her (Devi)... And could get darshan anytime. Tantra helped him achieve that.
Even in Devi Bhagvatam course SwamiJi says, what you have to do depends on what is the definition of prapti (attainment) for you? ... Whether you just want bhava like Meera had or Tukaram Maharaj had or Tanmayta like Ramakrishna had.
If only bhava is achievable by ONLY devotion without coupling it with Tantric upasana then why do scriptures refer to Lord as Bhaktisulabh?
PS:- I'm not talking about possibility of Liberation ... But of ishta prapti.
You are dissecting a matter of the heart with the knife of your sharp intellect! Ufff!! that hurts yaar!
Ishq kijiye tab samajhiye, zindagi Kya cheez hai!😉
What can’t you learn if you pay attention? If you are ready to absorb and understand. What can’t you learn if you are mindful? If you concentrate and give time to… Why will you not win in times of stress and trouble? If you believe; and be ready to tackle. Break free all the tangles. Bliss is hiding behind the troubles.
