    Shiva Geetha!


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    Dear All,

    Preceding the Bhagawat Geetha, it seems there is a Shiva Geetha in which Shiva & Rama play the roles of Krishna & Arjuna respectively.

    The problem with Rama is similar to that of Arjuna in the Geetha. He is dejected in life, after the separation of his wife Seetha. It is at this time that he meets Sage Agasthya who advises him to look unto Lord shiva and clear his doubts.

    And after raising a lot of philosophical questions, Lord Rama is dispelled of darkness and starts afresh.

    Members would like to put forth their views on this.

    The Siva-Gita is a text of Vedantic Saivism that comes to us from the latter portion (uttara kanda)

    of the Padma Purana. In many ways, it is a text not unlike the Bhagavad-Gita, except the focus is fully

    on Siva. In the Siva-Gita, the teacher is Lord Siva and the disciple is Sri Rama, and the narrator is Suta.

    The Siva-Gita begins with episode from the Ramayana epic, where Rama is despondent over the loss of Sita.

    At this time, Rama is visited by Sage Agastya, and the sage prescribes to Rama that he should observe a

    special vow called the Pasupata vrata. By observing this vow Agastya promises that Rama will have a vision

    of Lord Siva, and will receive the Pasupata astra (weapon) without which Ravana cannot be defeated. Rama

    performs the vow and at the end of four months receives a divine vision of Siva. Siva presents Rama with

    the Pasupata astra, and Rama in turn asks Lord Siva a series of questions. The dialogue between Rama and

    Lord Siva makes up the bulk of the Siva-Gita.

    Thanks for your views.

    Also contrary to the popular belief that only Lord Vishnu shows his Vishwaroopam, Lord Shiva has shown his Vishwaroopa to Lord Rama as per Shiva Geetha. A painting of this Shiva Vishwaroopa can be seen in Avudaiyar Kovil, in the ceiling of the 1000 pillared Mandapam.
