Offer everything to Shiva

I've been very blessed by Shiva.  And his many mantras:

  • Sanskrit: ॐ नमः शिवाय; IAST: Om Namaḥ Śivāya)
  • Shri Rudram
  • Guru Gita

As I have found through experience, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj - the great sage who gave us the book I AM THAT - is correct, we are mostly in the unconscious mind.  The conscious mind is but an outcome of what is happening in the depths of the psyche.  

The most profoundly difficult dream I have had to work with is that of dying, being choked to death by fear.  And every single time I have a nightmare now, Shiva's mantra comes through loud and clear, wakes me up out of the nightmare.  And then I switch the nightmare into a dream with the power of my meditation and the mantras.  

I offer the Shakti - the power - of my soul to Shiva.  And in this way, I am always in Shiva's grace.
