Kashmir - The land of Shakti

A war broke out between Shri Krishna & Jarasandha years before the great Mahabharata war. The then reining Prince of Kashmir Gonanda was an ally of Jarasandha. Eventually, Gonanda lost his life in the battle against Sri Krishna.

1/10
Damodara, the son of Gonanda and successor to the throne, was set to avenge his father's death. In pursuit of his vengeance, Damodar marched on with his army to fight Sri Krishna. A mighty battle ensued between them both. But in the end, Damodar was defeated and killed.

2/10
Nevertheless, Sri Krishna knowing the importance & sanctity of the Kashmir land, came himself to Kashmir and arranged the coronation ceremony and made Yashovati, the Queen of Kashmir. (pregnant wife of Damodar). This is the real woman empowerment in ancient Bharat.

#Keesaragutta is a #Temple dedicated to Mahadev Shiva & his consorts Bhavani & Sivadurga at Keesaragutta in Medchal-Malkajgiri district, about 30 km from #Hyderabad . It is located on a small hillock. @sattology @Itishree001 @LostTemple7 @desi_thug1 @DivineElement
#Sattology says that Sri Rama installed Shiva Lingam here to nullify Brahmahatya Paapa of killing Ravana. He selected this beautiful valley surrounded by hills & verdant greenery for the purpose & ordered Hanuman to bring a Sivalingam from #Varanasi.
@RajeAiyer @Nidhi7007
Hanuman was late in arriving with Shiva lingam & as the Muhurtham was nearing, Mahadev himself appeared before Sri Rama & presented a Shiva lingam for installation. Hence the lingam in the #Temple is called Swayambhu Lingam. @almightykarthik @harshasherni @pujari_anup

During Samudra Madanam, a pot of Halahala poison emerged from the ocean.
Mahadeva drank the Halahala poison and held it in his throat to protect the Earth. The poison stuck in throat and thus Mahadeva is called Neelakanda. It is said that Parvati Devi stayed awake all night praying, that the poison should not affect him.

Lord Shiva has five faces called Ishana, Tatpurusha, Aghora, Vamadeva and Sadyojatha. These five faces of Shiva represent the five basic elements viz. akash, air, fire, water and earth.

#MondayMotivation #MondayMorning #MondayVibes
In fact these faces can be called five forms of Shiva.

Any creation has to be made out of these five gross elements. The 1st form or face called Ishana, is the first physical form of Shiva. This form gives us pleasure that is enjoyed by our physical body.
This is represented in the form of organs of hearing and speech in our body and in the form of subtle sound and the celestial sphere or akash. It may be recalled that ancient rishis got the sound of Vedas only from akash.
