“He is all and everything. He is the universe.”
The universality and relevance of Lord Shiva cannot be overstated; He has been a revered deity since time immemorial. Shiva is not just a cultural or religious icon, but a manifestation of the higher truth. He has always been relevant to all of us, and his teachings have aided the awakening of our consciousness for centuries, paving the way to self-awareness beyond mortal limitations.
Shaivism contains some of the world’s most sophisticated philosophies that are relevant across time. From detailed texts on the universe, and karma, to the cycle of life and death, and more, Shaivism covers all fundamental aspects of our life.
Shaivism-based Science teachings cover medicine and healing in a way that no other philosophy does. The most significant Shaivite medical teaching is Ayurveda, which has gained renewed prominence now, but has been relevant to medicine since ages. Shaivism also greatly influences mental health practices, enlisting an array of approaches such as yoga, meditation and chanting that not only relax your mind, but also lead you to the highest self-realisation.
