Shiva Yajur Mantra, also famous as Karpur Gauram Karunavtaaram is one of the most famous mantras recited by Hindus. It's an ancient Sanskrit Shloka related to #LordShiva and an aarti in Shaivism. It's found in Yajurveda, one of the four canonical texts of Hindu Dharma, the Vedas.
Lord Shiva, one of Trinity Gods, is also known as Shankar, Rudra, Bholenath, Nilkantha, Mahadev. He's also known as the Destroyer or the Transformer according to Hindu Scriptures. He's the bestower of earthly happiness, promoter of good, and auspiciousness.
Lord Shiva is also called Shankara which means doer of good. He takes one beyond the three bodies (Tripura), gross, subtle, and causal that envelope the Jiva or the embodied soul. He is hence the Hara or the remover of all evil and the idol of renunciation.

Generally, February is regarded as a great month for love. No doubt western culture has a major effect on our youngster’s mind today. But in reality,the month of February holds an altogether a different meaning in our life.
Its actually the month of devotion. Its the month for offering prayers and connecting to higher energies. Its the month to meditate on the name of ‘formless’. Its the month to seek blessings of ultimate truth in this world.

It’s the month to connect with divine energy of SHIVA!
Shiva is MAHAKAAL i.e. he itself is time. Actually he is beyond time and space. He is eternal God in the form of pure,infinite, indestructible consciousness which is omniscient and omnipresent. He is all benevolent therefore known as BHOLA among its devotees.

This image of the Southern Crab Nebula was taken to celebrate Hubble's 29th anniversary since its launch on April 24, 1990. It shows the results of two stellar companions in a gravitational waltz, several thousand light-years from Earth.
It appears to have nested the structure of Shiva’s ”Damru” formed by a whirling pair of stars. Damru symbolizes the Universe which is always expanding and collapsing. From an expansion it collapses and then it re-expands, this is the process of creation. If you see your heartbeat
it is not just one straight line but it is a rhythm that goes up and down.
The whole world is nothing but rhythms; energy rising and collapsing to rise again. So the damru signifies that. Look at the shape of the damru, from expansion it collapses and again expands.

If you are a Shiv Bhakt, you must have practiced saying your prayers in the ears of Nandi Ji. Bhagwan Nandi Ji is one of the most dearest and close one to Bhagwaan Shiva. Outside every Shiv temple we can see Nandi ji patiently waiting for his Aradhya. The word Nandi comes from a
Tamil rooted word Nandhu which means to grow, to flourish or to appear, symbolizing the appearing of Nandi Ji or other white bulls. The sanskrit word nandi means joy, happiness, and satisfaction, which are the properties of divine Shiv-Nandi.
Every Shiv temple showcases
Nandi Ji looking towards the entrance of the main shrine.

Nandi Ji is a symbol of eternal patience and waiting. In indian culture waiting is considered as one of the greatest virtues. The one who knows how to simply sit and wait can achieve anything on a spiritual level and

Ravananugraha-Murti depicts #LordShiva seated on his abode Mount Kailash with his consort, Parvati while the demon king Ravana, of Lanka tries to shake it. The depiction is labelled variously as Ravana Lifting Mount Kailash or Ravana Shaking Mount Kailash.
Legend - Ravana once tried to lift Mount Kailash but Lord Shiva pushed the mountain into place and trapped him beneath it. Ravana gave a loud cry in pain. Then, for a thousand years, the imprisoned Ravana sang hymns in praise of Lord Shiva who finally blessed him.
Lord Shiva granted him an invincible sword and a powerful linga (Shiva's aniconic symbol, Atmalinga) to worship. Since Ravana cried, he was given the name "Ravana" – one who cried.

At first, Shiva tried to avert the question but Devi Sati remained adamant, so Lord told her, “All the heads in this necklace are your heads.” Astonished upon hearing this, Devi Sati asked how it is possible. Shivji said, so far you have been born and died 107 times, and my
necklace has 107 heads. This is your 108th birth and later on, this necklace will be completed with 108 heads. Upon hearing this Devi Sati wanted to know why she has to go through birth and death cycle but the Lord doesn’t have to. God Shiva smiled and said, I know the

Today is First Pradosh Vrat of Shravan month. As this pradosh vrat is falling on Saturday,it is called Shani Pradosh Vrat. #Lordshiva and #Parvati are are worshipped with fasting on this day. As it falls on Saturday,it gets immensely auspicious for Shani
related remedies. Lord Shiva made #Shanidev the lord of justice and he was given the power to reward or punish people based on karma.

By worshipping #Shiva on this day, you can become free from the malefic effects of #Shani. Especially the people who are going under
Saturn Mahadasha and Shani sadesati should chant ‘Om namah Shivaya’ 108 times today.
