How to please lord shiva?
On the special coincidence of the month of Shravan, Lord Shiva can be easily pleased with
Shiva Mahimana Stotra composed by Pushpadanta. The month of Shravan is the popular
month of Shiva, so Shiva is pleased by the simplicity of Bholenath Shankar. This Mahomedan
Stotram of Shiva describes Shiva’s divine nature and his simplicity. The unique and beautiful
story behind this Mahomedan Stotra is prevalent. Reciting Shiva ashtotara shatanamavali
Is another way of pleasing the lord.
Here is the story
At one time there was a king named Chitratha. He was a supreme Shiva devotee. He had a
beautiful garden constructed. Which had different types of flowers. Every day the king used
to worship Shiva with those flowers. One day Gandharva named Pushpadanta was going
towards the garden of that king. The beauty of the garden attracted him. Mohit
Pushpadanta stole the flowers of the garden. The next day Chitraratha did not receive
flowers for worship. Fascinated by the beauty of the garden, Pushpadanta started stealing
flowers every day. Every attempt by the king to solve this mystery failed. Pushpadanta
remained invisible due to his divine powers.
The king found the solution:
King Chitraratha found a unique solution. He offered flowers to Shiva and laid them in the
Vilav Patra Bagh. Unknown to the king’s measure, Pushpadanta crushed those flowers with
his feet. This caused the divine powers of Pushpadanta to wane. Pushpadanta himself was a
devotee of Shiva. On realizing his mistake, he composed this supreme hymn so that
Mahadev was happy and forgave his mistake and re-granted the divine form of
Pushpadanta. It is to be noted here that the Vedas say ‘God is unborn’. Here we will not talk
about God. The God of the Gods will speak of Mahadev, who is the most divine. Hinduism
believes that God did not create anything. Everything became automatic with his presence.
God is like time and the sky within which everything is there, yet he is the outermost and
there is nothing inside it.
The secrets of Shiva and how the Shiva ashtotara shatanamavali originated?
The birth of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva is a mystery. The stories of the birth of the three are
different in the Vedas and Puranas. The reason for their separation is that those who believe
in Shiva, keep their vision in the center of Shiva, and those who believe in Vishnu, keep
Vishnu in the center. But all the Puranas agree that Shiva married Sati, daughter of Daksha,
son of Brahma, and Vishnu married Lakshmi, daughter of Bhrigu’s son Bhrigu.
How Lord Shiva was born
There are many stories about the birth of Lord Shiva and Vishnu in different Puranas.
According to Shiva Purana, Lord Shiva is considered as Swayambhu while according to
Vishnu Purana, Lord Vishnu is Swayambhu. Everyone wants to know the story of Shiva’s
birth. According to Srimad Bhagwat, once Lord Vishnu and Brahma were overwhelmed by
arrogance and fighting themselves as superior, then Lord Shiva appeared with a burning
pillar, which none of the ends Brahma or Vishnu could understand.
If someone has a childhood, there will surely be birth and an end. In the Vishnu Purana, the
description of Shiva’s form is found. According to this, Brahma needed a child. He did
penance for this. Then suddenly Shiva, the crying child appeared on his lap. When Brahma
asked the child the reason for crying, he replied innocently that his name is not ‘Brahma’ so
he is crying. Then Brahma named Shiva as ‘Rudra’ which means ‘wearer’. Shiva still did not
remain silent, so Brahma gave him another name, but Shiva did not like that name and he
still did not keep quiet. In this way, Brahma gave 8 names to silence Shiva and Shiva became
known by 8 names (Rudra, Shravan, Bhava, Ugra, Bhima, Pashupati, Ishaan, and Mahadev).
According to Shiva Purana, these names were written on the earth and these names are also
known as Shiva ashtotara shatanamavali.
Where did the incident of the eternal and endless fire pillar take place?
In this context, there is a story that once Brahma and Vishnu had a dispute over their
superiority. Both decided to visit Lord Shiva for a decision. Lord Shiva appeared in the
formless form to sort out the dispute. The formless form of Shiva was seen as a fire pillar.
Both Brahma and Vishnu set out to find its beginning and end. Many eras passed, but it’s
beginning and end were not found. The place where this incident took place is known as
Arunachal. Brahma and Vishnu realized their mistake. Lord Shiva appeared in form and said
that both of you are equal. After this, Shiva said that I’ll appear in the linga form, so now my
form will be worshiped on the earth. By worshiping it, man will get salvation
various types of Shiva Sahasranamas in Hindu mythology.
The Linga Purana
The Brahmanda Purana
Maha Bhagavata Upa Purana
In the 13th chapter of the Mahabharata, Lord Krishna recites this 1,008-named Shiva
Sahasranama hymn to Dharmaraja. Interestingly, the Vishnu Sahasranama hymn was also
recited by Bhishma. Adi Shankara, who examined the Sahasranamas of these two famous
deities, seems to have come to the conclusion that Shiva and Vishnu are one and the same.
This is the origin of Shankara’s Advaita philosophy.
