the foremost of all gods, Yogishwara, the lord of Yoga, Shiv, one who is
auspicious, these are the names with which the destroyer of the Universe is
revered. When the role is so destructive on the face of it, why is lord Shiva
worshipped with such love and affection? It is because he terminates not life
but the attachment to it, which causes suffering. He is Mahakala, the vanquisher
on asana made out of tiger skin, a ferocious wild beast, symbolizing his
control over animalistic hunger. Snakes and Rudraksha (literally the tears of
Rudra) ornaments decorate the body of the god. He holds the trident and damru
(small drum), with his main hands placed in his lap, in a gesture highlighting
his meditative state. The crescent moon, representative of the mind adorns the
jata (locks of hair) of Shiva, signifying that the Parameshvara is above the
fickleness of the human mind. This brass Shiva statue is perfect for
meditation, focusing your thoughts on the divine aura and form of the lord who
has conquered Kala.
