Maha Shivaratri Observation In Person and Via Zoom

Friday, March 8, 2024

7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Shiva is the Lord of the meditator, the very identity of the meditator. The earliest iconography in human history is a meditative one as divinity sitting in the meditative posture. It is the iconography of Shiva. It is that one by whose grace we are drawn to a life of renunciation to go up the mountain, for he is the dweller of Mount Kailasha, the dweller of the highest mountain within us; the head. From his matted hair, the gushing river of inspiration , knowledge and wisdom flows. The very river descends from the highest of the heavens, comes right into our fontanel, and from there flows downward into the seven worlds (chakras), the seven continents, the seven oceans and becomes our very kundalini. That Shiva. To him I dedicate myself today and chant, “OM NAMAH SHIVAYA”
