#1 . Self-control is the key to living life to the fullest


An uncontrolled mind can lead you to live a disastrous life. You can’t win battles when you lose focus and fall prey to your desires and addictions. Therefore, it’s necessary to keep your mind aligned to your goals and heart too

#2 Keep calm and carry on

Shiva was called a ‘Maha Yogi-Tapasvi’ because they meditated for hours for the well-being of the universe. their  calm state of mind was disturbed only due to some extreme reasons,  otherwise he would always be in a meditative state of mind. Thus highlighting the fact that you can win half the battle just by being calm in a stressful situation.t’s really the best way to sorting out a problem.

#3 Materialistic happiness never stays for long

look at Shiva’s attire for a second. Only armed with a trishul and damru, Lord Shiva always stayed away from wealth. You’re missing out on nothing in life if you’re not attached to wealth and materialistic things. Because materialistic happiness is temporary. You need to find your happiness in events and experiences, and not things.

#4 Whatever it comes you must never tolerate evil

Lord Shiva was known as the destroyer of evil. He never tolerated injustice and destroyed the evil “RaXash” in a fair manner. Similarly, even we should try to keep zero tolerance for the evil and injustice happening around us and take a stand against injustice.

#5 We must learn how to suppress negativity gracefully

Lord Shiva was a ‘Neelkanth’ because he swallowed poison named ‘halahala’, that emerged from the ocean. Only Shiva could have consumed this poison and suppressed it in his throat. The most important lesson to take back from this incident is to take negativity in our stride, and turn it into positivity .

#6 Respect your better half


Lord Shiva was ‘Ardhanarishwar’, where half of him was Parvati. He treated Parvati with utmost respect and care. She was his ‘shakti’ (shakti means Power) and they gave her the importance she deserved.

#7 You must control your ego and let go off pride

Lord shiva

Your ego is the only thing that prevents you from attaining greatness. It ‘s your ego that comes between your goals and your dreams, and makes you a less loving person. It’s said that Shiva carried his ‘Trishul’  to keep his ego in check. He never let his ego get the better of himself. On the other hand, nor did he tolerate anyone else’s ego.

#8 Desires lead to obsessions and obsessions lead to destruction

Since Shiva was free from desires, Shiva never obsessed over things. It is a fact that desires always lead to obsessions, and these in turn make us self-destructive.

#9 Do research on something you’re likely to get into

The Ganga in Shiva’s hair symbolizes the end of ignorance. This implies that you should know what you are getting into. Being in denial about facts is not going to help so do not ignore facts accept the facts of life and everything else

#10 Understand that everything is temporary 

Maha-Yoghis (people like sant) don’t fall for ‘moh maya’. They know that life is ephemeral and what happens today is not going to exist forever. Time changes and so do we. with time everything is change happiness , sorrow , sadness and all . only  if you understand that everything is temporary you will always be happy 🙂


I hope these 10 life lessons from lord shiva  will help you to make your life better 🙂                                                    good luck and Har Har Mahadev
