Lord Shiva, whose nature is Consciousness and love, embodies the supreme Truth. His devotees worship him in countless ways. One classic way to perform worship is to hold an image of Lord Shiva in one's mind.
As our attention becomes established on a visual representation of Shiva, our awareness is drawn inward. There, in the serenity and silence of the heart, Shiva resides—formless and transcendent. Merging with the Lord, we come to know him as our own true Self.
As you explore this gallery, take a moment to allow the images to lead your awareness inward. Upon reflection, you may wish to share your experience with others.
