Lord Shiva and Parvati Love Story - Most of us know about Parvati but She knows what her previous incarnation was, her marriage to Shiva as Sati. . because Shiva believed that this would imbibe skills that would help in. Take the story of Kalyanasundar and Chandraghanta, in which I found practical and valuable relationship advice. Lord Shiva became an. Shiva shared five valuable secrets with Parvati which are essential to every human Shiva and Parvati finally united in the divine union of marriage. truthful, whilst the biggest sin is to be dishonest or to support such an act.
And then Shiva, lord of the universe, put his blue arm under his dread locked head, pushed the cobra that lived around his neck a bit to the side, took a small puff on his peace pipe, his chillum filled with lovely himalayan weed and began to talk. And he talked, and he talked. It was the most mystically electrifying talk that had ever been given in the history of all times.
Every detail of the workings of reality, Immortality For Dummies, and for Geniuses as well. As he talked, he closed his eyes to the narrowest slits and let all of his vast knowledge spill out, spiraling and dancing like the smoke of his pipe, all of it a love offering to his beloved.
Oh, Parvati must of been so thrilled, so honored, and mostly, so relieved to finally have the low down on this immortality thing because frankly, she was in a bit of a jam. But, she had this horrible habit, and as hard as she tried she could not break it.
The Marriage Vows Between Lord Shiva and Parvati Devi - Devi Mandir
She got involved with life. She really cared about the story she had made up with her husband, this story called MahaMaya in Sanskrit meaning grand illusion of existence. This is true moksha or spiritual emancipation. His practice of yoga and asceticism is solely aimed at keeping his mind and his being in a state of union with God. Parvati, on the other hand, has fully come to terms with the fact that she is here in the material world and subsequently tends to make her focus the practice of dharma.
She is concerned with doing her duty with regard to the function of creation and the enhancement of life on the earth. She is also very aware that by virtue of their asceticism, she and Shiva can produce children who can strengthen, uplift and inspire all other beings on the planet. She sees this as their duty. Not just to bear children, mind you, but to produce children who will make a difference in the world. The two of them create a balance between duty and liberation, contribution and disinterest.
For Shiva and Parvati, this is the creative tension of the opposites between the poles of yoga or spiritual union and bhoga or material enjoyment. This is the highest manifestation of the marriage institution so beautifully embodied by Parvati. So how does the average human woman attract her own version of Shiva? And by the same token, how does the average man attract his own manifestation of Parvati in relationship?
To the extent that a man has grown into a mature male and to the extent that he has also developed the feminine within himself, to that extent he will be able to attract a suitable partner or mate. To the extent that a woman has developed herself as a woman, a feminine being, to that extent she will be able to attract a suitable partner or mate.
When a man develops and cherishes the feminine in himself, he will then be able to attract a wonderful woman. She will find him irresistible. When a woman develops and cherishes her own femininity, she becomes irresistibly attractive as a woman and will then be able to draw in a beautiful, enlightened and balanced man.
A woman must regard the feminine side of her nature as an asset, not a liability — as a strength, not as a handicap. She must be grateful and happy to be a woman and celebrate this opportunity. If you seem to have a pattern of continually attracting the wrong sort of man or woman, take a look in the mirror and find your own inadequacy.
Years ago, I asked my eleven year old daughter if she was happy being a girl or would she rather be a boy. This may work for some but not for many. The first important principle with regard to finding a mate is timing. This can be quite accurately determined through astrological calculation. I have been able to do this for thousands of people with a high rate of success. Let us suppose you are in a favorable period of your life in which to find a mate whether you know it or not.
Have you done the requisite groundwork? Have you tilled and planted the soil so that your desired fruit will appear? Although, nowadays they are more willing to do that than ever before. You don't have to go out and chase after a relationship.
Draw it to yourself. The power of a woman lies in her identification with her feminine energy or prakriti as illustrated by the moon. This same law of attraction, by the way, can also work for men, especially those men who prefer not to chase around after women. No doubt, one must have or develop a fair amount of patience in order to stick to this approach. It can take some time. This method was adopted by both my wife and myself long before we met each other in ways that were somewhat similar and different.
And it worked for us. We both used meditation, prayer, mantra, visualization, and various offerings, such as incense, candles and flowers to particular male and female aspects of God. In other words, the desire was held firmly in the mind while the manifestation of the desire was left up to the gods. Although we each had preferences, our prayer was mainly that we would be sent a person most suitable for us as individuals.
In actuality, the universe or God knows better than you what is best for you. But most people get in the way of that by applying too much control or by thinking they know what is best for themselves or by not trusting in the higher divine plan or by focusing on one particular person who may not be even remotely interested in them, what to speak of suitable for them? If we leave it to the majority of humans to choose their ideal partner, guess what usually happens?
There tends to be a lot of trial and error. My wife and I endeavored in our own respective ways to leave it up to the gods to find and send us the one person best suited for us.
This was not an act of ego but more particularly, a surrender of the soul. Suggestions for attracting your mate: Many people recommend you write down in as much detail as possible the qualities and qualifications you are looking for in a person. Go ahead and do this and read it over a few times.
Now, burn the page it is written on and let it go within your heart. You have made the universe aware of your preferences. Now let it go and let the universe find what is best for you at this point in your life. You may have to do this a few times in order to feel like you are truly letting go and allowing God or the universe instead of your ego to determine your fate and find your mate.
Get a clear sense in both your mind and heart of how your mate should feel energetically or how it feels to be around such a person. Make sure you have sufficiently prepared and transformed yourself for the relationship you seek. Make a list of your own good qualities, qualifications and virtues. Affirm who you are and what you have to offer. Is who you are and what you have to offer desirable to another person?
If you were that other person, would you want to be with you? Expand your qualities and virtues so that you actually become irresistible to others, so that you become a person that you would want to be with. The list of qualities below may offer some good suggestions. If you do not already embody some of these qualities, then you should sit peacefully in meditation and see and feel each one of them developing within you.
Feel yourself embodying and materializing each quality. Meditate on real-life situations and how you would behave and what you would do if you were to express a particular desired quality. In your meditation, shift yourself energetically to bring your vibration into the essence of the feminine. As completely as possible, step into your feminine being so that you may draw in the masculine in its purest form. Do things that make you feel like a woman.
This will be different for different women. Behave like a woman.
On Shiva, Parvati, and showing up well for partners
If you do wonderful domestic things while figuring out ways to manipulate people around you, then you will hardly benefit from such behavior. Celebrate your womanhood and your femininity. Feel yourself attractive and irresistible to men but not in a lustful or provocative sense. Like the sun, let your spiritual beauty shine all around you. Physical beauty is great but it fades over time. The beauty of the soul eternally expands. It seems that our modern world has run amok with the belief that plastic surgery is somehow the cure-all for whatever your problem might be.
This has little or nothing to do with the beauty of the soul. Many years passed between the end of my first marriage and the beginning of my second. I had girlfriends from time to time but never for more than a few months at a time. Some people accused me of having a fear of intimacy, being unable to commit, maintaining unreasonable standards which no woman would ever be able to reach, being impractical and out of touch with reality, and of looking for a woman who did not exist.
I bore these criticisms quietly. When I found a person who initially appeared to be a good candidate for relationship but turned out to be unsuitable, I would end it sooner rather than later. Or because society says a woman of your age should be married. Or because your mother is pressuring you for grand children. On rare occasions, I have met women who are around forty and have not yet married.
I am referring to attractive and desirable women who have usually had a few offers of marriage in their past. But they have held out since the right person had not yet presented himself.
Though some of them may admittedly be a little lonely, I have tremendous admiration for these women. They did not compromise themselves or their principles and get married to the wrong guy just because everyone else around them was getting married. More often than not, these are usually strong women. Many people want to go into relationship or so they say. But one of the areas often overlooked is that of emotional availability.
They want a relationship but they are unwilling to make a space for it in their lives, what to speak of their hearts. If they go into relationship, they go in very cautiously which may be a good idea on the one hand. However, it usually translates to their holding something back. Their expression is one of reservation.
This may be a reasonable practice initially but if their partner then proves worthy of their trust, why are they still unwilling to give it?
Or if the person indeed demonstrates that he cannot be trusted, why were you with him to begin with? If the person is indeed worthy of trust, maybe he is not the right person, the one you are looking for? If you actually found Mr. Right, would you then be willing to open up and surrender to him? Would you give yourself to him?
Would you be available emotionally to the relationship? I know I myself was not available emotionally in relationships for many years. For the most part, it was because the woman was not quite right for me and I knew it instinctively. It was also partially my experience of abandonment at birth that contributed to this. However, when I found the woman to whom I am now married, I surrendered my heart completely because all felt right.
I became emotionally available probably for the first time in my life. I also think I may have not been ready, not mature enough perhaps in the past. If the right person comes along, you must be ready to surrender yourself to the relationship and not hold back waiting for yet another person to come along.
I will always protect you with my Love. You remain without concern. I will remain with you both in pleasure and in pain. In circumstances of pain, I will maintain patience, and in pleasure I will express my delight. In both pleasure and in pain I will always be with you. I will protect and nourish our children, my husband, and our family.
I will provide all the necessities for life for our family, including food, clothing, and shelter, whatever is needed. I will seek your agreement in all matters of our household life. I will remain contented in any standard you choose to maintain us, and I will always respect and obey your every order. I will always prepare food for you and our family, and assure that you are always satisfied with food. I will always enjoy whatever you give me to eat, and I will never have desires from any other woman.
I will not make any other woman my source of nourishment.
