Here’s why our Shivaay Collection is a must-do for MahaShivratri

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.

 

Of all the Hindu Gods none appealed to the emotions of a Hindu mind as much as Lord Shiva, the dweller of the mountains and the bearer of the trident, who with His third eye symbolizes the all knowing awareness of the very Brahmand or Universe .

 

Although universally acknowledged as one of the trinity gods of Hinduism, to His followers, He is Maheswara, representing the Trinity all by Himself, His different aspects manifesting themselves as the creator, preserver and destroyer of the worlds he creates.

 

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.

This Kada has been designed around two of Lord Shivas most symbolic objects – The Kamandal and the Trishul The Kamandal of Shiva is made of a cleaned up pumpkin and contains the nectar of immortality- Amrita. Just as a pumpkin cut open and cleaned of all of seeds and dried, can be used to store clean water, the individual must break away the attachment to the physical world and clean himself or herself of ego and desires for experiencing the blessings of Shiva.

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.

 

Snake

Lord Shiva is considered as Adiyogi – the first and most accomplished yogi. The snake stands for the fully awakened “Kundalini” energy.

 

 

Styled around a naga, we designed it very aesthetically so that the coils look elegant. With the scales showing very clearly across the kada. A stylish Kada that can go with any outfit.

Damroo

Shiva’s Tandav is the cosmic dance and his Damaru represents the cosmic sound and the Vedas.
