Significance Of Shiv Parivar:
Shiva (or Siva) is one of the most important gods in the Hindu pantheon. Shiva is the God of the yogis, self-controlled and celibate. Parvati is the hindu goddess of fertility, love, beauty, marriage, children, and devotion; as well as of divine strength and power. Shiva is the renunciate and dresses in tiger skin and snakes for ornaments. Parvati is a perfect picture of a devoted wife and dresses beautifully along with be jewelled ornaments . The elder son Kartikeya is a warrior and the younger son Ganesh is a remover of obstacles . Even their vehicles are inimical to each other, Kartikeya’s peacock is the sworn enemy of Shiva’s snakes, whereas Parvati’s lion always wants Shiva’s bull for breakfast. Ganesha’s mouse is no match to Shiva’s bull or Parvati’s lion, the mouse lives underground while Kartikeya’s peacock flies and the lion lives in a cave! Ganesha as the god of beginnings, he is honoured at the start of rituals and ceremonies. Ganesha is worshipped first on every pooja and is the God of pure consciousness, good luck, knowledge and wisdom
