People today associate Shiva with marijuana and other doping material but they don’t know the crux of why such things are associated him. Shiva is much beyond mankind knows about him.
Here are 5 facts about Lord Shiva that will change your notions about Him.
Facts about Lord Shiva –
1 – Height:
It is believed that Lord Shiva was really muscular and strong. His height was around 7 feet approximately and he wore minimal clothes made of the skin of dead animals. Take a note, he never killed animals to make his attire he used the skin of already dead animals and roamed the mount Kailash in utmost glory and calmness at the same time.
2 – Dope:
Lord Shiva used to puff weed popularly known as Ganja in India and a lot of people claim to be His followers and consider dope as his holy food. They don’t know the exact reason why He was inclined and practiced all this. It is said that Lord Shiva used to smoke-up to fight the utter cold of his abode and also he was a saint who was too much into meditation and concentration, the Ganja helped him to concentrate better. I don’t think people today have the same reasons to smoke-up! Not at all!
3 – Blue body:
It is said that the blue color of Shiva’s body was because of his consumption of the most fatal poison that existed on the earth a thousand years ago. There was a tug-of-war between the Gods and the Demons which also churned out poison from the ocean. That poison was deadly enough to gallop the entire world as a result Lord Shiva drank it and stored it in his throat which turned him blue. It was that powerful.
4 – Sex:
Lord Shiva was utterly powerful and so he knew that no women could handle his fierceness when it comes to sex but his wife Goddess Parvati was reluctant to feel like an actual wife and for obvious reasons wanted intimacy from her husband. Even after his repeated denial his wife convinced him. They both vanished for their time alone, their sexual actions lasted for months and months and nobody could know where the two exactly are. After the earth started shaking and hills started slipping, other gods prayed to them to come back. It was then when lord Shiva bowed down to his wife for being powerful enough to handle him.
4 – Demons:
Lord Shiva loved the demons as much as he loved the Gods. He would often give them boons after they would make him happy with their prayers. A lot of gods didn’t appreciate this act of lord Shiva but he had his prioritize straight. He never discriminated between the positive and the negative, the good and the bad, god and demon and so on. He was never bias and he never will be. He believes in karma without a doubt.
These are some of the facts about Lord Shiva that help you know a bit more about him. Though no human has the tendency and capability to describe the hidden facts associated with him but somehow these things reached mankind. I am sure there are a lot more but there’s one thing that is clear, Shiva is eternal.
