    Description

    In this beautiful brass figure Nandi is shown carrying Shivalinga protected by hooded-serpent. The figure of Nandi, the vehicle of Lord Shiva is given a resplendent touch. Nandi is the bull that served as the mount of Lord Shiva and as the gatekeeper of Shiva and Parvati. Nandi is the chief guru of eighteen masters (18 Siddhar) including Patanjali and Thirumular. Temples devoted to Lord Shiva display stone images of a seated Nandi, generally facing the main shrine. Therefore Nandi is the protector of the temple. There are also a number of temples dedicated exclusively to Nandi. Lord Shiva is one of the most powerful deities and is responsible for the destruction of the universe. But this destruction became necessary as it is the prelude to a new beginning. He is the Supreme Consciousness that illuminates the three states of waking, dreaming and deep sleep. Offering the threefold bilva leaves to the Shivalinga heralds the return to a level of consciousness beyond the three states, which is the fourth state, turiya. The dawning of that state is consonant with the awakening of the individual.
