This is a Sanskrit mantra for the devotion of Lord Shiva (in Sanskrit signifies Auspicious One), or Siva, is one of the main Deities of Hinduism.

Another meaning of Shiva is direct: „who promises you bliss”. He is worshiped as the paramount lord in Shaivism and He represents the Consciousness of Infinite Goodness.

He forms the part of the Trimurti (Trinity), the other being Lord Brahma, the creator, and Lord Vishnu, the preserver. Lord Shiva is known for the complexity of his nature, picturing contradictory qualities.

It is also said that Lord Shiva represents the threefold qualities of nature: creation, preservation, and destruction, although preservation is usually attributed to Lord Vishnu.

Lord Shiva is called The Great Destroyer because by transforming our reality each moment, He destroys what was – to create what is.

He is known by several other names (108 total), including „Devadeva”, „Shankar,” „Mahesh,” „Bholenath,”„ Nagabhushana”, „Gurudeva”, „Neelakanth,” „Mahadev,” „Mahadeva,” „Kailashadhipati”, „Nataraj,”„ Mahashaktimaya” and others.

It is considered that followers, who read, memorize or recite these 108 auspicious names of Lord Shiva with single-minded focus and sincere heart, will receive the blessing of the Lord and be shorn of all negative actions.

An important aspect of Shiva is called ”Shambho.”Lord Shiva

Normally, Shambho, or this aspect of the root energy is worshiped by only people who are on the spiritual path, because the word Shambho means “the auspicious one”.

The most auspicious thing that can happen to you is to realize yourself, is to reach the highest within yourself. The sound Shambho is very, very significant.

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, often referred to as simply Sadhguru, said

„The power of this sound and the capability of this sound to liberate a being from one dimension of entanglement and move him to a different state of freedom is something phenomenal, especially because everything that we have done here is engineered around this particular reverberation.”
