Happy Shivaratri






















Shiva and Parvati riding on Nandi, Ink and gouache and gold c. 1820 - 40


 A man comes to himself
When he wakes from sleep.
Likewise, I have perceived the God and Goddess
By waking from my ego.


When salt dissolves,
It becomes one with the ocean;
When my ego dissolved,
I became one with Shiva and Shakti.


- Shri Jnaneshwara (Dnyaneshwar, Dnanadeva), 13th century
