My Pious Lord


Annihilating sins with holy fires
Muses he amidst burning pyres

He can be quite a formidable foe
And the most gentle one can know

Has three eyes and two aspects
And commands the ultimate respect

Only into him, this universe dissolves
Divine celestial energy, he’s made of

I kneel down to Shiva, my pious lord
To plead for ‘moksha’, the final accord.


It is not possible to fathom Lord Shiva; He is far beyond anyone’s comprehension. He has two aspects- Shiva and Shakti. I am His ardent devotee and consider Him to be the ultimate, above everything else in the world. Another interesting thing is that only his pet bull ‘Nandi’ is said to have asked for the Lord himself as a boon, unlike others who wished only for worldly pleasures.

If we focus on God with an intention of merging into his energy, of achieving Him and not other riches, we can take a significant leap towards the attainment of Moksha, a stage where a soul becomes free of the eternal cycle of birth, death and rebirth.
