Shiva the Ultimate Truth

Life & Astrology

When one says ‘Shiva’, there are two fundamental aspects that are referred. The word ‘Shiva’ literally means ‘something which is nothing’. Science also proves that everything comes from nothing and goes back to nothing. The basis of existence and the basic quality of the cosmos is pure nothingness. The galaxies are just the small happenings . The rest is all infinite empty space, which is referred to as Shiva. So Shiva is described as a non-being, and not as a being.
At another side, when we say ‘Shiva’, we are referring to the Adiyogi, who is the beginning of yogic science. Yoga does not really mean standing on your head or holding your breath. Yoga is the technology to know the essential nature of creation of this life and how it can be taken to its ultimate point.
These both forms are the same, because a yogi is someone who has experienced the ultimate union and experienced existence as himself. Something can not hold everything. Only nothingness can hold everything. When we talk about Shiva as ‘something which is nothing’ and Shiva as a yogi, in a way they are same, yet they are two different aspects of cosmos. India is a mix of different culture, so we shift from one aspect to another very easily. Shiva started a systematic uncovering of yoga in a scientific manner to seven disciples known as ‘saptarishis’. He explored nitty-gritties of creation and brought forward yoga as a science with which every human being can grow and evolve. Yoga is a way of moving beyond the limitations that physical laws impose upon us.
