Why does Shivaji hold a snake in his throat?
Shiva is considered as the head of the three gods. Through the wishes of Shiva Brahmaji has composed this creation. And Lord Vishnu is following it. Shiva’s form is very different from other gods. His clothes and ornaments are also very mysterious. The person from whom he runs away, Shiva keeps him with him. Lord Shiva holds the snake in the throat.
Lord Shiva gives this message by naming the Nag, that every creature of this creation is dear to him.
Do not kill any creature. Every single organism has an important role in this creation. That is why we should protect all the organisms.
Why does the vehicle of Lord Shiva is bull?
Shivaji’s vehicle is Nandi ie bull The ox is very hard and powerful, but it remains calm. The bull never tires, always keeps doing its job. Nandi gives us the message that we should continue to do our work and no reason should not show up our power in front of anyone. Those who take care of these things, the grace of Shiva remains on them.
