Demigod Series: Lord Siva

Demigod Series: Lord Siva

Description of course

One of the most iconic personalities within the Vedic pantheon.  Lord Siva is instantly recognisable with his ash-covered, snake wearing ascetic appearance. His form is ubiquitous in ancient Vedic temples, alternative new-age shops and museums and galleries all over the world. 

He is the protector of the holy land of Vrindavan and the personality who allows access to pure devotion to that Sacred land and the esoteric intimate exchanges of love that the Supreme Divine, Krishna has with his devotees. In this course his beautiful character will be looked at in depth with references from the great saints and sages in the Krishna conscious tradition. And the following areas will be examined:

- Who is the enigmatic and often misunderstood personality known as Shiva? 

- How is he relevant for us in our day to day lives? 

- This course will explore the mysterious pastimes and apparent contradictions surrounding Lord Siva with many practical lessons

- There will be a special focus on how Lord Shiva and Krishna are intimately connected and what that means for modern practitioners of spirituality
