Shiva Bhakti Home page http://www.jyotirlinga.com emails

The website that I host http://www.jyotirlinga.com brings a lot of emails my way from spiritual aspirants, specifically those who are Shiva Bhaktas. Here is one for today.

Priest of our home town temple is saying their is no need to have lord Shiva statue in Shiva Prewar wherever Shivling is installed. He is claiming shivling represent Shiva and their is no need for Shiva Statue. I completely disagree with him on this matter. How a Shiva parivar can be complete without Lord Shiva Statue.

I am agnostic on this - it is personal choice and devotion/bhakti
Personally, I like having Lord Shiva representation idols, pooja room idols, paintings etc.around me.
Lord Shiva is the most forgiving God and easiest to please. THink of your devotion and love for him. He is saddened over every little tear drop that comes out of our eyes and is forever benevolent towards us - constantly keeping a watch out for us - nothing to worry.
Do what you think is best, just have devotion for Lord Shiva in your heart.

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
