SIVAPARATATTVA AND ITS IMPORT

The sacred scriptures of Hindus, particularly the Rudradhyaya of Krishna Yajurveda, Chandogya, Svethsvatara Upanishads and several Puranas have tried to bring out the elusive splendour of His myriad forms and inimitable glory, but in vain. Siva, that Ultimate Reality is beyond the range or words and thought.

If language describes His power and glory, would it not tantamount to His own creation scoring victory over Him ? Does it not pose a challenge to His Omnipotence ? Son never outgrows father in age. The created never surpasses its unsurpassable Creator. The unexcelled excellences of that Supreme Reality should remain as such only to keep its offspring propetually gaping and gazing with infinite awe and admiration as a mark of expression of devotion to that extent of ultimate dissolution and total absorption ,into that greatest Him. How could the yearning of Jivatma to merge into that Paramatma better expressed? remains for mankind other than that Sayujyamukti absorption of its Atmajyoti into that Paranjyoti ? That alone  should be the life's highest and surest craving of mankind,  declares the wisdom of our Maharshis.
