Shiva: The Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient

An Image of Shiva sitting on Kailash and Smoking Ganja , Chillum or weed whatever you may call it with its clouds all around and a Trishul on the side with Har Har Mahadev written in Hindi

On the occasion of Maha Shivrartri, we created Lord Shiva T shirts for all his devotees. We also thought to do a small write up about Mahadev to understand about the history of Lord Shiva. Although, he is the one who is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent and is beyond the dimensions of time and space. We can only try to learn about Mahadev as far as the scriptures tell us.

Different Puranas talk about the origin of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh in a different manner where they favor each God based on whose Purana it is. As per Shiva Purana, when both Brahma and Vishnu were arguing about who is more powerful of the two, there appeared a great blazing pillar whose roots and branches extended beyond the earth and sky. So huge, that its end could not be seen. Both Vishnu and Brahma decided to find its end so, both went in opposite directions but could not find its end and finally decided to return back. Both of them returned from where they started and accepted that there is a third power which co-existed with them which has no start and no end.

There are many questions that arise about the birth or appearance of lord Shiva. Some interesting questions also come across like how did Lord Shiva die?

It is said that Brahma is there for 100 years in his time cycle and each day of his is equal to one thousand cycles or Maha Yuga. Each Maha Yuga lasts for 4,320,000 years. Since Brahma is supposed to retire after this period, some people ask the question what happens to Shiva after this. One thing to understand is Shiva is beyond the dimensions of time and space. He was and will be there whether we exist or not.  Shiva is said to be omnipresent and he is the destroyer. He was before the universe and before this cycle of birth and death started and he will be there after the universe and even after when this cycle of birth and death ends.

To celebrate his presence and in his devotion we have created these Lord Shiva graphic T shirts.
