Lord Shiva is the ultimate grandmaster of yoga, most personifying the practise of yoga. As Nataraj, the lord of the dance, lord Shivas dance and gestures also reflect yoga postures. As Yogeshwar, the great lord of yoga, he rules over all aspects of yoga relative to body, mind and consciousness. Shiva is the lord of asana practice with 84 lakhs of asanas said to have derived from his movements. Shiva symbolises the immortal Prana, the undying force of eternal existence. Tantric yoga teachings about Prana relate to Shiva, who holds the inner power of pranayama. Many great yoga traditions arise from Shiva and honour him as their original guru. Most Himalayan sadhus are Shaivites. Shaivite Yoga includes the Nath traditions that form the main teachings of Hatha Yoga and Siddha Yoga. In Vedic times, Shiva was lauded as Rudra along with the Maruts, his wandering sages, and with great Rishis like Vasishta. Shiva Yogis maintain a special sacred fire in honour of this Vedic heritage. ✨👁✨ Hari Om Tat Sat ~ Har Har Mahadev ✨💀✨ Shubh Prabhat ❤️#ani_bharadwaj93#aditialex#n_shiva_devotee#_aghori_#indian#hinduism#tina_klym#femalealchemist#namrata718#shiva#daksha#tiger#damru#mala#tirsul#moon#fire#snake#om#Girijesh#Mahesh#Nandiseswarayaah#Neelkanth#panchavactra#Durijaat#gangadhar#Vishwanath#Loknath #yogini#yogi
In the religious traditions of India, elephants symbolize royalty, majesty, strength, divinity, abundance, fertility, intelligence, keenness, destructive power, and grasping power. The souls in elephants are said to be highly evolved and ripe for evolution. The Hindu Puranas suggest that elephants in the past had wings. Elephants appearing in dreams to mothers before the birth of an important person or sage is a common cultural theme of India. An elephant is kingly. Hence, the head of an elephant herd or the royal elephant of a temple goes by the epithet, gajaraj, king of the elephants. Since they represent royalty, power and strength, in the past India had dynasties named after elephants. For example, a dynasty named Gajapathis (lord of the elephants) ruled parts of southern and eastern India. From the writings of Megasthanese, a Greek ambassador in the court of Chandragupta Maurya, we know that kings employed people who excelled in the art of capturing, taming and domesticating wild elephants. Elephant care was an important subject for which there were treatises. The Vedas do not directly refer to the elephants, but we know that elephants were native to India and existed in the subcontinent even before the Vedic civilization. Indra's vehicle is a white, elephant known as Airavath, which according to the Puranas emerged during the churning of the oceans by gods and demons. It was given to Indra as a gift. Ganesha, the lord of the Shiva ganas, has the head of an elephant. His large head symbolizes knowledge, intelligence and thinking power. His trunk represents grasping power, while his large ears denote his attentiveness. In ancient India, elephants played an important role in warfare. 🕉DM if you are interested in purchasing any of these pieces or for more information🙏🐘 💥Brass Ganesh statues are all made in Nepal.

I'm ready! Come join me for a #newmoon#celebration TOMORROW @ 6pm (more info in comments). Our objective is to embrace the absence of light and excess energy (that the moon provides) and use the newfound space to go inward, straight into the center of sight. What does our present life truly hold - what do we need answers to - what's in front of us that we've been blind to - how can we tap into the light within? Comes find out!
🌌🌚There are two types of ppl on the planet. There are those that use without harming, and there are those that use without concern (commonly inflicting pain on others) of harming. Everyone is a "user". We use our friends to have a good time. We use comedians as a source of laughter/entertainment. We use artists to escape from or relate to our thoughts at any given moment. We even used our parents to survive until we were old enough to fend for ourselves. We're all in some form or another using people. But there is a difference in the way we can use each other, and we do have a choice. We can use ppl for our benefit without harming them emotionally or physically --sometimes BEING USED mutually, beneficial for all parties involved. But we can also use them with the knowledge that we are placing them in the way of suffering due to our mission of self satisfaction. The latter being the easiest way to obtain negative karma. Doing no harm to others really boils down to what kind of user we are. At the root of all suffering is desire, the desire to please ones own urges no matter the magnitude. Make conscious decisions to use without harming, this is how you starve karma and clear the debt you've acquired thru time in this density. Keep it real with yourself.🌚🌌 ---------Sunaat #sun#moon#earth#gaia#universe#galaxy#ascension#university#meditation#om#aum#iam#christ#buddha#krishna#vegan#vegetarian#yoga#love#spirit#soul#sacredgeometry#tatto#poetry#art#planet#crystals#thirdeye#gullysteez
