Shiv has no birthday
He is not Bhole. He is Bholenath – the protector of Bhole
Bhole – someone who is easily deceived
What about the story of Bhasmasur. – where he was deceived ? You misunderstood the story.
Shiv never has Avatar. He may send afraction of himself. The world cannot hear the full greatness of Shiv
It is sad and unfortunate for some religions to not pray to Shiv (example some sects of swaminarayana or Nanak ). The words of the great ones are very hard to follow
How can you understand the beauty of Shiv ? When you have not seen him or understood him ? Neel – blue neck, snake around him, surrounded by “ghosts” moon on forehead, ganga in hair and long braided hair ? Oh what a beautiful description – only a Yogi knows what I said !
The sign of an awakened Shakti is immediate love for Shiv ! If love for Shiv is not there – much cleaning of heart is needed Thus is the description of an awakened Shakti !
