Mahadeva

Satyam Shivam Sundaram.

Maha Shivaratri, the Great Night of Shiva, will be celebrated tonight.

Shloka and translation provided by Dr. V.N. Muthukumar. From Yajurveda, taittirīya praśna 4.24.

सर्वो वै रुद्रस्तस्मै रुद्राय नमोऽस्तु । पुरुषो वै रुद्रसन्महो नमोनमः ।
विश्वं भूतं भुवनं चित्रं बहुधा जातं जायमानं च यत् ।
सर्वो ह्येष रुद्रस्तस्मै रुद्राय नमोऽस्तु ॥

All this is indeed Rudra. To that Rudra, we offer our prostration.
To that Being, Rudra who is the light and Self of all beings, we prostrate again and again.
The Universe which was created, the manifold and varied creations of the past and the present – all this is indeed Rudra. To that Rudra, we offer our prostration.

Fifteen years ago, while wandering in the Goan village of Narve, I came upon a beautiful Tulsi Vrindavan seated in a grove with the visage of Mr. Cool Guy Himself.
