There is a reason Shiva is called ‘Mahadev’ in the Hindu religion. The tranquil-looking diety can turn into a destroyer in a matter of seconds. He has multiple shades to his personality, and is one diety who can teach us the wisdom to live life. Shiva is trending among our television actors. Read how Shiva inpires them.
NITI TAYLOR: Lord Shiva inspires me a lot all I love to follow him because he is known as the destroyer of evil. He couldn’t tolerate injustice and destroyed the evil in a fair manner. Similarly, even we should try to keep zero tolerance for the evil happening around us and take a stand against injustice.
HELLY SHAH: An uncontrolled mind can lead you to live a disastrous life. You cannot win your targets when you lose focus and fall prey to your desires and addictions. Therefore, it’s necessary to keep your mind aligned to your goals and heart too. Lord Shiva is god of meditation. I feel he inspires me to be focused. I am a big devotee of shiva.
TANYA SHARMA: Take a look at Shiva’s attire for a second, Lord Shiva always stayed away from wealth. You’re missing out on nothing in life if you’re not attached to wealth and materialistic things. Because materialistic happiness is temporary. You need to find your happiness in events and experiences, and not things. He is clear explains me that materialistic happiness never stays for long.
ABHINAV KAPOOR: Shiva inspires me to keep calm and keep moving on. Shiva is called a ‘Maha Yogi’ because he meditated for hours for the well-being of the universe. His calm state of mind was disturbed only due to extreme reasons, but otherwise he would always be in a meditative state of mind. Thus highlighting the fact that you can win half the battle just by being calm in a stressful situation. It’s really the best strategy to sorting out a problem.
MAHIKA SHARMA: Shiva teaches us that our ego is the only thing that prevents us from attaining greatness. It is your ego that comes between your goals and your dreams, and makes you a less loving person. He never let his ego get the better of himself. On the other hand, nor did he tolerate anyone else’s ego.
ROOP DURGAPAL: I am a huge devotee of Lord Shiva and everything about him is worth getting inspired. His third eye symbolises that we should not always believe that we see untill we are able to see it through our mind’s eye. Similarly his Trishul symbolises controlling our ego, mind an intellectual self.
