Ardhanareeshwar(अर्धनारीश्वर)


Madhubani Painting


Mother Shakthi once propitiated Lord Shiva with such fervent intensity that she be part of him in body and mind. Her pleased husband through his divine powers granted her this wish. The Master then absorbed her in half of himself and thus was created the half-man half-woman aspect of Lord Shiva, symbolising the oneness of all beings.
