Sayings Of Lord Siva

ON RUDRA

This form of mine as Siva is that of Rudra too. O great sage, no one shall make any difference in it.

***

A piece of gold tuned into an ornament does not cease to be gold. There may be difference in name but not in the material content.

***

Rudra shall be worshipped by you (Visnu) and Brahma. The author of dissolution of the three worlds is the complete incarnation of Siva.

***

O Hari , in the times of distress, Rudra my manifestation, shall worshipped.

***

In my manifestation in the form of Rudra, I shall lift up these beings immersed in the ocean of distress by conferring on them perfect knowledge.

***

He who differentiates between us (Siva and Rudra) falls into hell. In this life too he will attain stress and be devoid of sons and grandsons.

***

The word Rud means misery or cause of misery. The Lord who dispels it is called Rudra, Lord Siva, the great or ultimate cause.
