Shiva Power - V​.​A. (Shiva Squad Records)




Shiva is 'Shakti' or Power, Shiva is the Destroyer, The most Powerful God of the Hindu Pantheon and one of the Godheads in the Hindu Trinity. Known by many names - Mahadeva,Mahayogi,Pashupati,Nataraja,Bhairava,Vishwanath,BholeNath - The actual image of Shiva is also distinct from other deities: his hair piled high on the top of his head, with a crescent tucked into it and the river Ganges tumbling from his hairs. Around his neck is a coiled Serpent representing Kundalini or the Spiritual energy within life, He holds a Trident in his left hand in which is bound the 'Damroo' (small leather drum). He sits on a tiger skin wears the 'Rudraksha'beads and his whole body is smeared with ash. Shiva is believed to be at the core of the Centrifugal Force of the Universe because of his responsibility for death and destruction.Unlike the Godhead Brahma(The Creator or Vishnu The Preserver), Shiva is the dissolving force in life But Shiva dissolves in order to create, since death is the medium for rebirth into a new life. So the opposites of life,death,creation and destruction both reside in his character. He is also often portrayed as the supreme ascetic with a passive and composed disposition. Sometimes he is depicted riding a bull called Nandi decked in Garlands.Shiva is one of the most fascinating of Hindu Gods, well'just to let you all know more about him he is the only God who's always High !!!! Shiva is regarded as a Mighty Destructive Power,he is fed with opium and is also termed as 'Bhole Shankar',one who is oblivious of the world Therefore on Maha Shivratri, the night of Shiva's Worship, devotees, especially the menfolk,prepare an intoxicating drink called 'Thandai'(made from cannabis,almonds and milk) sing songs in praise of the Lord and dance to the rhythm of the drums. Thus We Are Proud To Dedicate Our Debut Release VA "Shiva Power" to The Lord Shiva !!!!
