Sayings Of Lord Siva

ON HIMSELF

Cast off your false pride. Fix your thought in me as your lord. It is out of my favour that all the objects in the world are illuminated.

***

I have two forms the manifest and the unmanifest. No one else has these two forms. Hence all else are non lsvaras.

***

I am the Supreme Brahman without decay and change. Existence, Knowledge and Bliss are my characteristics.

***

For the activities of creation, maintenance and dissolution, I manifest myself in the three forms of Brahma, Visnu and Hara (Siva).

***

But I am different from these Gunas and directly beyond Prakrti and Purusa.

***

Hara (Rudra) who causes dissolution of three worlds has Sattva within but Tamas outside.

***

I am always subservient to my devotees.

***

I am the holder of the chastising rod for the wicked and favorably disposed to those who seek refuge in me.

***

I become sanctified by the person who in this world helps those who harm him.

***

I am the lord far beyond the attributes (Gunas) the Omniscient and the Omnipotent. I am Siva pervading all but stationed in the single-syallabled mantra OM.

***

A pathologist diagnoses correctly and cures illness through medicines. Similarly Siva the cause of dissolution, sustenance and origin of the world as well as the router of the gross is called the physician of the world by those who know the nature of the principles.

***

Siva is the great Atman because he is the Atman of all, he is forever endowed with the great qualities and there is no greater Atman than him.

***

I am the source of the Vedas.

***

I am known as the bestower of boons.

***

I am content and pure. What shall be done unto me by men?.

***

Everything originates from me, stays within me and gets dissolved in me, there is nothing different from me.

***

Thus I am the entire universe and everything is stationed in me. I our independent but everything is dependent on me.

***

I am one who can adopt anybody I choose. Hence I have neither bondage nor liberation.

***

O Visnu. I am lord Siva the unsullied. I divided myself into three forms under the names of Brahma, Visnu and Rudra with the activities of creation, protection and dissolution.

***

I am the lord present in all these as the great Atman and the devotees shall worship me.

***

The Omniscient Being (Siva) is only one. There is only one lord of all. He is the overlord of all. He is the immanent soul of great luster.

***

On being worshipped, the external lord (Siva) grants happiness. O excellent Brahmins, if one does not worship him one does not attain happiness.

***

As Soma. I am Kalatman (the Soul of Time), identical with Vijnana (perfect knowledge), As Mahesa Paramesvara, I become identical with Ananda (Bliss).

***

Men desirous of salvation and unattached to worldly pleasures worship Siva after realizing the futility of worldly pleasure.
