in photography •  10 months ago

Today is one of the auspicious festivals for Hindu culture where they celebrate and perform various rituals for Lord Shiva
and is named as Shivaratri - celebrated mostly in Nepal and India.


In Hindu religion, lord shiva is considered as the supreme of the god. He is supposed to be the 'destroyer of the evil'.
Shivaratri (Night of Shiva) is celebrated on the night of new moon aroound the month of February.


Shivaratri is celebrated as the day when Lord Shiva saved the world by drinking posion that was produced from the ocean while trying to extract AMRIT -medicine for immortality. Due to this the throat of Shiva is bluish in color.


It has been believed that lord Shiva is fond of marijauna and people smoke weed on this day as an excuse of the festival. The festival is celebrated with the big logs of firewood and other worshipping to the lord.

I once heard that Robert Oppenheimer, the man often called the father of the atomic bomb, one said, "I am become death, destroyer of worlds" and attributed these words to Shiva. I think he said that the quote comes from the Bhagavad-Gita. I was just wondering, are you familiar with what Shiva was talking about when he said these words? Is it correct that this quote comes from the Bhagavad-Gita?

Actually I have not read Bhagwad Gita, but

GOD - Generator Oserver Destroyer

G - Lord Bramha - who created the universe
O - Observer - Lord Vishnu - who observes and maintains the universe
D- Lord shiva belong to Destroyer. So, like the line you said, he is responsibel for the death and destruction as after creation there must be destruction, Its the law of nature

Great post! I did not know Lord Shiva was fond of Marijuana, is this stated in the scriptures?
