The 8 Forms of Siva #236
It is a well-known fact in India that Divine Reality is everywhere, and in everything. This fact persists despite India’s philosophical systems that reason in different ways to explain it, coming at the conclusion from various perspectives. In Shaivism, this fact is revealed by utilizing the teaching of Siva’s eight subtle and eight visible forms, which lead the seeker to perceiving Reality outside and inside, while connecting both as well. The result is a more comprehensive view that covers all bases, inspiring the aspirant towards union with Paramasiva, the Supreme.
