As a youth, this song struck me deeply. Power in a peaceful aggression. It wasn’t until the years had past,  I came to know some of the meaning behind the chants. 

Please take some time to consider…all the power within your every pore. 

Just what that means in the grand scheme of illusions that surround us…


shankar shiv mahadev

har har shiv mahadev,

trishul pati mahadev

parvati pati mahadev


There is a god within us all.  We hold and release immense power.

The Destructor

The Eliminator

 The Creator

The illusion destroyer.*

"If he's honest, he'll steal; if he's human, he'll murder; if he's faithful, he'll deceive. Being at a loss to resolve these questions, I am resolved to leave them without any resolution." I have so much to say to you that I am afraid I shall tell you nothing."
