Sayings Of Lord Siva

INTRODUCTION

Om Shri Ganesaya Namaha. Obeisance to Lord Ganesa literally means Lord of all beings. Ganesa is the first son of Lord Siva and Goddess Parvati.

Om SriSaiRam

Before the commencement of any undertaking Lord Ganesa's grace is invoked, as He removes all obstacles and overcomes all problems. If Lord Ganesa is pleased no undertaking will meet with failure and success is assured.
Lord Siva is one of the Hindu gods of the Trinity. This universal existence is repeatedly created by Brahma, the god of creation, maintained by Visnu, the god of maintenance and destroyed by Siva, the god of destruction at the end of the cycle of time. Creation, maintenance and destruction of this infinite universe is a continuous process.

Om SriSaiRam

The two major sects in Hinduism are Saivism and Vaisnavism. Vaisnavism extols Visnu and His incarnations or Avatars as the Supreme all-pervading Reality. All other Gods and Goddesses are stated to be subservient to Visnu.
Saivism extols Lord Siva as the Supreme, all - pervading reality. However, all the other gods are seen as the manifestation of the supreme all-pervading reality. The other gods are all different facets of the same power. Savism does not differentiate between Siva and Visnu, seeing them as the one God in His different forms.

To indicate the unity of the gods, the same three gods are combined in one form of the God Dattatreya. Lord Dattatreya has the faces of Brahma, Visnu and Siva in the same body.

Siva is married to Goddess Parvati. Savism also advocates the worshipping of Goddess Parvati and their Sons.

Lord Siva is the only God to be worshipped in His manifest form as a picture or idol and in his unmanifest form in the Linga. Lingam is a round emblem of stone or clay. Siva Linga is a symbol of Siva. The worshipping of Lord Siva in His Linga form is considered most potent.
