7 Lessons From Lord Shiva You Can Apply To Your Life.

  • Surbhi Jain

There is a reason Shiva is called ‘The Devo Ke Dev-Mahadev’. The tranquil-looking lord can turn into a destroyer, and can also be a’ Bholenath’.

He has multiple shades of his personality, and is one god who can truly teach us the wisdom to live life. Take a look at 7 lessons we can learn from him.

1. Come what may, you must never tolerate evil

Lord Shiva was known as the destroyer of evil. He couldn’t tolerate injustice and destroy the evil rakshasas in a fair manner. Similarly, even we should try to keep zero tolerance for the evil happening around us and take a stand against injustice.

2. Self-control is key to living the life to the fullest

An uncontrolled mind can lead you to live a disastrous life. You cannot win battles when you lose focus and fall prey to your desires and addictions. Therefore, it’s necessary to keep your mind aligned with your goals and heart too.

3. Keep calm and carry on

Shiva was called a ‘Maha Yogi’ because he meditated for hours for the well-being of the universe. His calm state of mind was disturbed only due to extreme reasons, but otherwise, he would always be in a meditative state of mind. Thus, highlighting the fact that you can win half the battle just by being calm in a stressful situation. It’s really the best strategy for sorting out a problem.

4. Desires lead to obsessions and obsessions lead to destruction

Since he was free from desires, Shiva never obsessed over things. It is a fact that desires always lead to obsessions, and these, in turn, make us self-destructive.

5. You must control your ego and let go off pride

Your ego is the only thing that prevents you from attaining greatness. It is your ego that comes between your goals and your dreams and makes you a less loving person. It is said that Shiva carried his Trishul to keep his ego in check. He never let his ego get the better of himself. On the other hand, nor did he tolerate anyone else’s ego.

6. Understand that everything is temporary

Maha yogis don’t fall for ‘Moh Maya’. They know that life is ephemeral and what happens today is not going to exist forever. Time changes and so do us.

7. Respect your better half

Shiva was ‘Ardhanarishwar’, where half of him was Parvati. He treated Parvati with utmost respect and care. She was his ‘Shakti’ and he gave her the importance she deserved.
