Memories

IMG_8191

Let the memories dry

In the night skies

Hung in the wires of time

Away from the prying eyes

 

When the breeze blows

And they reminisce the past stories

You just snuggle them

In the warmth of your embrace

 

But don’t press hard

They might crinkle or crank

Just sing few lullabies

And make them sleep

 

When the morning dawns

And the sky glows in the golden light

Let those memories anchor you

In the promise of new future.

Mahashivratri and it’s significance

A few days back we celebrated Mahashivratri , a festival celebrated by hindus and its followers all over the world . Mahashivratri marks the union of Lord Shiva and Goddess Shakti , both of them represent the  supreme masculine and feminine energy .

Maha Shivratri is celebrated on the Krishna Paksha Chaturdashi of Hindu calendar month Maagh which falls in February or March as per the English calendar. Of the twelve Shivaratris in the year, the MahaShivarathri is the most powerful. According to some legends , Lord Shiva also performed the cosmic dance , Tandava on this day . Another story tells that when poison came out during churning of the sea , it was Lord Shiva who decided to drink that poison to save the world from its ill effects . With his yogic powers he was able to withheld the poison in his neck . His whole body turned blue and that ‘s why he is also called Neelkanth.

Lord shiva is the supreme among all gods . He is the limitless , unchanging and formless. He is the ascetic who lives in Mount kailasa , he is also the householder who lives with his wife Parvati and sons Ganesha and Kartik. The patron god of yoga and arts , his mysticism intrigues his disciples all over the world . He is beyond everything and that is why he is referred as Parbrahma.

Lord shiva is also refered as unborn , he has always been there , he appears by his own energy , he is the wind which blows on us , he is the water which quenches our thirst and the earth which gives shelter to us .He is the cosmic manifestation of all these . He does not have any beginning and nor any end .

On this festival of Mahashivratri , May lord Shiva bless you with peace, prosperity and a limitless energy which will help you lead a life of happiness and contentment. And as I always say May we find the greater purpose of life for which we are born for .
