How Shiva’s adornments HAVE inspired us for “THE Shivaay Collection”

Seals have been found at Mohenjo-daro depicting a figure sitting cross-legged in what some call, a yoga-like pose . This figure, sometimes known as a Pashupati, has been variously identified. Sir John Marshall identified a resemblance to the Hindu god, Shiva.If this can be validated, it would be evidence that some aspects of Hinduism predate the earliest texts, the Veda.
The term Shiva appears in the Rigveda, but simply as an epithet that means “kind, auspicious”, one of the adjectives used to describe many different Vedic deities.
Lord Shiva is no ordinary god; He wields a mighty power over the universe. Most devotees are familiar with the different legends associated with Lord Shiva, which uphold his status as an invincible Divine power.

Lord Shiva is also famous for his adornments, and it is believed that each of these adornments has a significance behind it.


Here’s how his adornments are an inspiration for us:

Trishul

Trishul symbolises the Ida, Pingala and Sushumna, – the 3 main nadis in the energy body of the human system. It also represents the 3 powers of knowledge, desire and implementation.

Trishul Ring

Designed around the Trishul motif, as carried by Lord Shiva, this ring has an adjustable shank, so it can fit any finger size. Suitable to wear for both men and women.

Third Eye

The third eye means another dimension of perception has opened up, so that you can see beyond the obvious physical. When it opens , it destroys Ignorance and Evil.


This ring represents the Ajna Chakra , on the forehead. The third eye is the eye of spiritual wisdom and knowledge. It is believed that Lord Shiva uses the third eye to see beyond the apparent and protect the good ones from the evildoers. All the evil and the ignorance vanish as the third eye opens. In Buddhism, the third eye refers to Eye of Consciousness, which asks followers to see the world beyond their physical eyes.

Rudraksha

Rudraksha can balance the vital forces within the body and fight all kinds of contaminations. They denote purity. The Mala in the right hand denotes concentration.
