Lord Shiva and Gautam Buddha

Shiva

Background

Long back I have written an article named ” I see Shiva in Buddha” and the same was much appreciated and now I wish to extend that article in the broader context of spirituality, supreme consciousness, and libration.

The article earlier published now changed

The author has the purpose to explain what he feels or experiences to make readers know so change is taking place

God Shiva and Gautama Buddha are the ones with different timelines.

While wandering around the shopping complex with my six years old son I come across the calm face of the Buddha statue at one novelty shop and at that moment I couldn’t stop myself from staring at the face of Buddha as if my consciousness is feeling God Shiva. 

Being (father-son duo) ardent devotees of God Shiva My son asked me if Buddha is Shiva. My consciousness has realized that Buddha is the modern-day face of one dimension of God Shiva.

The author has a different view and wants to add or improve the article

Shiva or Param Brahma is supreme consciousness and every devotee or yogi aspire or make efforts to come closer to realizing Param Brahma. The efforts of realization can go on with several births and deaths (Birth-death-rebirth cycle known as samsara) until liberation is met. 

Guatama Buddha was or is a realized being. He received enlightenment under supreme consciousness and he too realized Gyan which he promoted worldwide and his disciples extended it to the farthest of the world. The people bow down before his enlightenment and accepted and adopted his principles.

The countless living being before Lord Buddha and after Lord Buddha got the same or different levels of enlightenment and experiences whether they remained silent or hidden or open but certainly many had realization or in other words enlightenment.

Don’t expect the author to write the name of any prophets or messenger or angels or gurus to be included in the list of enlightened beings. Because the author is no authority nor does he wish to be. 

Do Enlightened being required anyone’s writing or recognition to be called enlightened ones? Certainly not Once a yogi becomes a free soul who cares about worldly accolades, achievements, recognitions, and regime/game religion politics, etc.

So Here the author is establishing that yes Guatama “Buddha” had truly embraced spirituality and enlightened with the grace of Shiva, the supreme consciousness. Comparing it ( as the author previously has done ) is not needed as one can understand that supreme consciousness is incomparable. This is the main purpose of rewriting this article.

Different TimeLine but One Consciousness

2500 years ago Lord Buddha enlightened society with spiritual consciousness. God Shiva or as we call Adi Yogi is as old as humanity or perhaps the universe. It is said the First Yogi Shiva incarnated 40-50 thousand years back. Even after a huge timeline gap, the two embody the same composition of spiritualism and enlightenment in one or another way.

In this part, I want to put some changes as under

I have made one video about ” who is shiva ” encapsulating the views of both Gurus ( Sadhguru Ji and Sr Sri Ji)

I empathically state that Shiva is a principle and not any man or being. Shiva should be considered limitless and timeless. He is Mahakaal hence beyond the realm of the timeline. And also understand he is beyond the law of karma or his Prakriti (nature). So again I state that countless people got realized in the timeline of 50000 years to 2500 years and they all received the same level or different level of same consciousness and enlightenment and Gyan. Starting from Adiyogi to many countless atmans (souls) realized the enlightenment but certainly not to put shiva in the timeline. 

Source of Spiritualism

God Shiva is the apex source of all spiritualism which a devotee can achieve in many ways. The great Buddha is the Timeline dimension of God Shiva and he successfully enlightened the path of consciousness (One of the paths laid down by God Shiva) to mankind with definite ways and steps.

In this part, I want to put some changes as under

True, God Shiv is the apex source of all consciousness, enlightenment, and spiritual attainment. And Supreme consciousness opens up various ways for human beings to get evolved and realized with one. Lord Buddha in his realization chose one way, one method to attain moksha and he managed to present it to society for the greater good of society.

Calm and serene spirituality of God Shiva and Lord Buddha

While we see the different postures of God Shiva in various sources namely yoga mudra, Nritya (dance) mudra, Gyan mudra, Social posture as family head, Tandav mudra, and many other postures of God Shiva. But the face that is there in every mudra is calmness and serene spirituality. Buddha is similar to Gyan mudra with a calm face. Guatam Budhha is calm and gyan mudra of God Shiva. Every mudra has its own importance and 2500 years ago Gyan mudra was used to enlighten society with spiritual bliss.

The Author would like to add in this section

Different postures of God Shiv are symbolic and Author considers mudra as a powerful tool to yoga sadhana. Every human being since time immemorial had used or chosen at least one of the mudra to attain enlightenment. Supreme Consciousness has opened up various ways, various tools, and different opportunities for everyone to adopt and initiate. The author has earlier rightly said in the article that Lord Buddha used Gyan mudra to enlighten society. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu used bhakti (devotion)  as a way and songs as a tool to attain enlightenment.

The Universal truth – Shiva is Buddha and Buddha is Shiva

Each Mudra of God Shiva has its unique meaning and significance and at different times and ages, different dimensions of God Shiva incarnate to enlighten the society. Buddha was rightfully blessed with spiritual consciousness in Gyan mudra. Like the author, many of us have realized over a period of time that Shiva is Buddha and Buddha is Shiva.

The author here changes his perception

The Universal truth is one ” Buddha is Shiva and every enlightened being is shiva” The statement is beyond the realm of comparison.
