Shiva: The Perfect Embodiment of God’s Consciousness

The great Shiva is the model expression of embodying the Consciousness of GOD in daily activities, without any limitations, without beginning or end.

In this state of perfect openness to manifest God’s Consciousness, the great god Shiva is the perfect model for all those who sincerely aspire to unite all opposites and achieve a state of perfect dynamic balance in the middle of all life’s activities.

Shiva’s cosmic dance is the source of inspiration
and support for the ones who are ready to step without hesitation or delay on the path of transformation and evolution.

By the astonishing and unquenched thirst with which Shiva is absorbing and manifesting the Supreme Consciousness of God, He becomes the ideal that awakens and inspires the sleeping hearts – making accesible to each of their levels a glimpse into the Absolute.

The Master of All Yogis & Tantrics

Due to His unhesitant and total openness towards the Supreme Consciousness of God, Shiva is always able to transcend everything while manifesting a perfect control.

Thus Shiva is the inspiring Master of all yogis and tantrics – both those who want to withdraw from the world, as well as those who aspire to walk the paths of the world as their spiritual path.

Shiva’s perfect openness towards God’s Consciousness allows Him to manifest accordingly, in various situations of life, as a specific hypostasis, offering exactly what is needed from the Supreme Consciousness there and then.

His glorious model of spiritual success becomes easily accesible to every sincere and courageous practitioner who is truly embracing transformation without reserves. Shiva is the one exemplifying the way one can step beyond the limitations and helps destroying the blockages on the path.

It can be said that the light of awareness in itself is the only characteristic of Shiva – all the other characteristics He appears to have being only specific manifestations needed that He inspire for the open Heart.

This extraordinary and exemplary expression of the pure light of Consciousness itself makes Shiva the Great Master of all those who aspire to awaken their consciousness, who aspire to eliminate the veils of illusions with the help of the clarifying light of Consciousness.

The Pure Light of Consciousness

Various spiritual traditions, from different ages of humanity, agreed on the fact that the straight path of evolution and transformation is the awakening of the Consciousness.

After the light of awareness is strong enough, it can be easily turned towards oneself and become the self-awareness that reveal the godly nature within.

Shiva’s inspiration and Grace help us to take this direct path of awakening and represents the guiding “star” on this path to spiritual liberation.

It can be said that the light of awareness in itself is the only characteristic of Shiva – all the other characteristics He appears to have being only specific manifestations needed that He inspires for the open Heart.

Hypostases & Godly Attributes

Each of Shiva’s hypostases, famous in certain parts of the world, represent exemplary ways to integrate and manifest one or more of the Godly Attributes according to the specific needs in every moment & situation.

Shiva’s perfect openness towards God’s Consciousness allows Him to manifest accordingly, in various situations of life, as a specific hypostasis, offering exactly what is needed from the Supreme Consciousness there and then.

Due to the exemplary abandonment in front of God’s will and the insatiable openness towards the light of Consciousness, Shiva exemplifies for the devoted aspirant the way to integrate the Godly Attributes in daily life.

The Great Spiritual Hero

The esoteric tradition of Tantra reveals Shiva as the “Great Spiritual Hero”, MAHAVIRA.

When called upon with devotion and openness Shiva is the one that inspires and supports us to surpass our limitations and defeat all the inner resistance on the path to evolution and transformation, becoming an embodiment of the Godly Heroism.

When we aspire for transformations, when we feel the need of a direct impulse in the awakening process, Shiva is the one to call upon, and through His being these impulses come from God to us.

The inspiration to become able to cut the knots of our attachements (the chains of our previous actions), the heroic attitude to transcend the familar environment we have created for ourselves – they all come into our being when we connect, full of devotion and aspiration, with the gigantic sphere of power and consciousness of Shiva.

The Good & The Kind

In Sanskrit Shiva means “the good and kind”, “the auspicious one”, and also “the one who is full of grace”.

This is the characteristic of the light of awareness that always dispells with unparalelled efficiency the sufferance of unconsciosuness and ignorance.

Having Shiva as a godly model, inspiration and support, the heroic aspirant is ready to step on the path of effective and unhesitant transformation.

When we open towards transformation without reserves, Shiva reveals Himself to be our good and helpful companion that is always there when we need, but never doing our homework for us.

An Intensive Spiritual Program

This camp is addressed to all those who feel the aspiration to give a boost to their spiritual transformation process – all those who are ready for a heroic approach to evolution and ready to step out of the “comfort zone”. Shiva is the one that we can meet just outside of the “comfort zone” and can show us how to turn the lights of awareness ON so that we can begin our journey of transformation and evolution.

Join us for a 10-day intensive guided spiritual practice for the awakening of the light of consciousness through deepening the communion with Shiva. The program is designed to help all participants, (irrespective to their level of spiritual experience) deepen their communion with Shiva and enjoy the effects that always appear afterwards.
