We’re here with another blog post to highlight the learnings that everyone can learn from the personality of Lord Shiva. God Shiva is known for his diverse personalities and names like “Devo ka Dev”, “Mahadev”, “Nilkanth”, “Shivaji”, “Maha Yogi” “Bholenath”, “Ardhanarishwar” and “Pashupatinath” etc. He is known as a destroyer of evil spirits and injustices. Some lessons that every technology fellow(programmer, designer, analyst, project manager, or whoever they are) can learn from Shiva are:
Tolerance and Self Control
Shiva is considered as the optimum state of mind and mind’s stability. Whatever situation you’re going through, we must control ourselves and think twice before action. You need to be able to handle your desires and addictions(if any) to win the battle. Focus is everything so you should keep your goal clear and your mind, as well as your heart, focused on it.
Research over Ignorance
Another thing you can learn from Shiva is to avoid ignorance as far as practicable. You might have seen “Ganga” flowing in Shiva’s hair which symbolizes the end of ignorance. Know the subject matter well before getting into it to be successful, be it in a project or any other task.
Desire, Obsession and Destruction Theory
Unnecessary desires are the main reason behind obsessions. If your mind is thinking of an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes within, that may break your time schedules. It’s very important to stick with what’s important. The main thing must always be “The Main Thing”. Otherwise, it may lead you to a disastrous situation.
Respect Your Better Half
You may have seen lord Shiva’s images with half male(Shiva) and half female(Parvati). For this reason, he is also known as “Ardhanarishwar” – means half woman and half man. This symbolizes respect and cares for your counterpart. Every man should respect and care for women no matter what.
Materialistic Happiness is Temporary
Searching for happiness in the material world is not going to work in long term. You need to find inner peace and a state of mind so that you can enjoy every moment happily. You can learn from Shiva’s outfit and appearance as well.
