Satyam Shivam Sundaram

सत्यम शिवम् सुन्दरम Satyam, the truth; shivam, the good, the divine;and sundaram, the beauty.
Truth is the experience, shivam is the action that comes out of the experience, and beauty is the flowering of consciousness of the man who has experienced truth.


Shiva is regarded as the patron god of yoga and arts. At the highest level, Shiva is regarded limitless, transcendent, unchanging and formless.

Iconographic attributes of Shiva are the third eye on his forehead, the snake Vasuki around his neck, the crescent moon adorning, the holy river Ganga flowing from his matted hair, the trishula as his weapon and the damaru as his instrument. Shiva is usually worshiped in the aniconic form of Lingam aka Shivlinga

Mahashivarathri, "the Great Night of Shiva" is the most significant event in India's spiritual calendar.The festival which is in veneration of Lord Shiva, marks the day when the supreme lord married Maa Parvati and together the form of Ardhanarishvara came into existence.

For me, shiva is a pure form of energy, which is neither positive nor negative.
You can’t see it but you experience it everywhere, as prana or consciousness.
From centuries people are trying to give shape to this formless, form... Here are some expressions of shiva that i handpicked from the world around us.


Doing my first blog post about the people who are experiencing this energy and expressing it in their own way. Be it anything - tangible or intangible, an artwork or an illustration, music or prayers, storytelling or poetry, tvseries or books...
