Shiv Katha was organised with great enthusiasm in the state of Himachal Pradesh.
In ancient times, spiritually accomplished sages and seers of India acquired the true knowledge of spirituality and chronicled in the form of Vedas, Upanishads, and Purans. Our culture has nurtured the principles of truth, justice, love and good conduct. The apposite flavour of our values and traditions can be experienced by studying these scriptures, and Shiv Mahapuran is one of them.
Disciple Preacher of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji explained that Shiva -The Auspicious One, also known as Mahadeva is regarded as one of the primary forms of God. He is the Supreme God within Shaivism, one of the three most influential denominations in contemporary Hinduism.
He is one of the five primary forms of God per the Samartha tradition, and "The Destroyer" or "The Transformer" among the Trimurti- the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine. Shiva has many benevolent and fearsome forms. At the highest level, Shiva is limitless, transcendent, unchanging and formless.
The very existence of human life is celebrated as the gift of Lord Shiva who accepted poison that emerged during the process of “Samudra Manthan”. Lord Shiva incarnated in several forms to play pivotal roles at different times.
Thus, the Katha sessions involved unravelling of “Shiv Leela” not only in divine context, but also with special emphasis on the spiritual significance of his “Tritya Netra”. Shiv Mahapuran is meant to be the best source of man's liberation.
