Discovering Shiva

Half man and half women

He is both body and soul

Calming as the moon

And alert as the snake

He is both hot and cold.

Powerful as his trident

He conquers over time

Creator, preserver and destroyer

All amalgamating in one

He is both dead and alive.

Pure as a lotus

With awakened kundalini

Snakes around his body

And a playful drum

He is both powerful and humble.

He dances terror

Yet calms the mind

He lights up consciousness

And rides the right

He is both the problem and its solution.

He sees with his third eye

Drinks up poison

He smokes cannabis

And plays the drum

He is both illusion and real.

He is THE Universe

Master of all

May his blessings

Be with one and all.


I am THAT I am

Happiness and sunshine

  1. This is such amazing poetry – what a magnificent offering to the Lord and Master of All. I so, so LOVE how you explain Mahadev is in all dualities and yet above it all. My prostrations at the Feet of Infinity who has no Feet and yet is the Feet of all. The painting is AMAZING – absolutely love the Lotuses and the Trident. I feel so blessed to see this today – on MahaShivaratri. Thank YOU! Har Har Mahadev ki Jai!

    1. Thank you Krishna priya , I have not painted this , but this picture spoke to
      Me the moment I saw it.
      Glad you loved my poetry , it’s my tribute to the almighty, an offering.
      Shiva and Shakti are his dual faces and yes I wanted to elaborate on this uniqueness in shiva .
