Temple of Shiva and Shakti in Moscow

Temple of Shiva and Shakti in Moscow

May the Sun rise in your life - a symbol of self-knowledge, perfect understanding of how I am Atman, the supreme reality, the Atman hidden in the external manifestations of the ego, consciousness, feelings, self-consciousness. Shining sun behind the head of Shiva shows that he lives in complete and permanent understanding of higher reality as him self.
"Love, like wisdom, is not to be found. It is not around us, it is within us. If you created a space for love in your heart - it is sure to come"
There is one Supreme God, called by different names: God, Allah, Krishna, Shiva, Odin, Mother, God, Jehovah, Brahman, idea, Higher Mind, Higher Reality, etc. - All names the same. Parameshvara (the Highest Lord) is one and there is no other. Perceive this supreme reality & seek not for anything else. Tantra defines the Absolute as the unity of the Lord and His energy (i.e., Brahman = Shiva+Shakti, Purusha and Prakriti).
"The Lord our God is one Supreme Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord your God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with thy entire mind, and with all thy strength, Amen!" - This is the first commandment!
Higher One is indivisible, has no form, no sound, no definition, but at the same time has the form, the manifestation of sound and may have different names and definitions. Supreme Reality is at the same time devoid of all qualities (Nirguna) and with qualities (Saguna), devoid of any form (nirakara) and with forms (Sakar). His Higher aspects are infinite and limitless. It was variously praised in the Scriptures. Mundaka Upanishad says: "He is not grasped by idea and can not be seen by race and color. It has neither arms nor legs. It is immortal, omnipresent, and limitless in the great and in the small. He is the eternal, whom wise perceive in their sight, as a source of all beings. (1,1.6-7)
"He is invisible, limitless, and eternal, devoid of all qualities; He is an inexhaustible source of all. (1,1.6-7)
So the Kena Upanishad states: "The eye, words or mind do not penetrate there. We do not know, we can not comprehend how he can be described: He is above comprehension and incomprehensible. So we have heard from the ancient sages (rishis) explained to us this truth. "
In various scriptures many similar words, glorify the One, the Eternal, devoid of any duality (ekamevadvitiyam) or Nirguna Brahman (Absolute, devoid of all qualities), self-existent, which has no form or qualities of the Supreme Highest Lord. Kularnava Tantra contains the following slokas: "There is the Supreme Absolute - indivisible, good (Shiva), all-pervading. The Creator of the universe, Lord of the whole world, pure and simple, devoid of duality (advaita), shining by his own light (svaprakashah), with no end nor beginning, eternal, limitless, devoid of qualities (Nirguna), full of eternity - knowledge - bliss, whose parts are all living creatures.
Saivism proclaims: God Siva is Love, both immanent and transcendent, both the creator and the creation. This world is the arena of our evolution, which leads by stages to moksha, liberation from birth and death. Aum.
In our temple of Universal Love, you can find tantric rituals, runic and white magic, mantras, books about various aspects of philosophy, religion, yoga, Vedanta, and the esoteric teachings of ancient medicine, translations of ancient texts, and much more. We hope that these materials will help both neophytes and those who have long been moving towards self-realization.
O Lord Shiva!
I take refuge in Thee.
Thou art unborn,
Thou art shapeless,
Thou art the Supreme Brahman.
Thou God of gods.
Thee, O God,
I worship.
Worship Shiva!
Worship Rudra!
Om Namah Shivaya!

Это удивительное Место Силы, где вы можете получить даршан Махадева в форме огняRussian Arunachaleshvara Mandir is located in the 1.5 hour drive from Moscow, metro Kurtizanskaya. This is a wonderful power place , where you can get Mahadeva's darshan in the form of fire. It hosts ritual worship of Shiva and Shakti in the tradition of Siddhars. Fire is a manifestation of cosmic energy (Shakti) on Earth. Shakti is the power of the Lord, or cosmic energy. Shakti is the energy aspect of Ishvara or God. Shakti is contained in the Lord. Just as you can not separate the heat from the fire, so you can not separate the Shakti from God, the owner of Shakti. During the havan special offerings (ghee, rice, flowers, fruits ...) are offered to fire with the ancient mantras, and material energy is transformed into refined spiritual one. Fire ceremony harmonizes space, balances the atmosphere and biomagnetic fields. Worshipping Fire, we learn to concentrate on the Divine in the form of Light.

Yajna, yagya (Skt. yajna) - Hindu Sacrifice Rite , which took its origin in the religious practices of Vedic religion. Yajna is usually committed to meet the Devas or the execution of certain wishes (Kamya rituals). The most important element yajnas is the sacrificial fire (the divine Agni), which offered various offerings, which, like all the proposed Agni, go to the Devas.

To god Agni, source of fire, who gives Ojas to body and mind:
Aum Mahajwalaye Vidmahe Agnidevaye Dhimahi Tanno Agnih Prachodayat
"Om. Let us meditate on the great God of fire in the form of blazing flames. May that radiant Agni Deva inspire and illumine our mind and understanding"
Omagnim ile purohitam yajnasya devam ritvijam Hotaru ratna dhatamam
I call upon Agni, chief Deity, the god of the offerings and the chief priest, bearing the greatest treasures.
May Anugraha-Shakti (Power of Love, Mercy and the saving revelations of the Lord Shiva), Ganesh blessings, Mother Shakti, Skanda-Babaji and the Siddhas be shed on you! Храм Шивы – это обитель Бога Шивы и богов и пространство, в котором три мира сознательно общаются. Он считается особо священным, так как обладает лучом духовной энергии, соединяющим его со звездными мирами.

What Is the Nature of the Siva Temple ?

The Siva temple is the abode of God Siva and Gods and the precinct in which the three worlds consciously commune. It is specially sanctified, possessing a ray of spiritual energy connecting it to the celestial worlds. Aum.

The three pillars of Saivism are the temples, the scriptures and the satgurus. These we revere, for they sustain and preserve the ancient wisdom. Siva temples, whether they are small village sanctuaries or towering citadels, are esteemed as God's home and consecrated abode. In the Siva temple we draw close to God Siva and find a refuge from the world. His grace, permeating everywhere, is most easily known within the precincts of the Siva temple. It is in the purified milieu of the temple that the three worlds commune most perfectly, that devotees can establish harmony with inner-plane spiritual beings. When the spiritual energy, Shakti, invoked by the puja permeates the sanctum sanctorum and floods out to the world, Saivites know they are in a most holy place where God and the Gods commune with them. Within most Siva temples are private rooms, sanctums, for Lord Ganesh and Lord Karttikeya, and shrines for the many Gods and saints. The Vedas explain, "Even as the radiance of the sun enlightens all regions, above, below, and slantwise, so that only God, glorious and worthy of worship, rules over all His creation." Aum Namah Sivaya.

How Are Temples Founded and Built?


Siva temples are founded by God Himself, often designated in a vision or dream of a devout Saivite, and then erected by temple craftsmen usually following Agamic law. In such a holy place, holiness itself can reside. Aum.


Because of its holiness, a Siva temple is most often and properly established by God Siva through His devotees and not founded by men. Once the site is known, hereditary temple architects, known as sthapatis, are commissioned to design and construct the temple. By tradition, every stone is set in place according to the sacred architecture found in the Agamic scriptures. When properly consecrated, the temple becomes a place upon the Earth in which the three worlds can communicate for the upliftment of mankind and the fulfillment of Siva's dharmic law. Siva has deliberately established many temples to communicate His love to His children throughout the world, who live in every country of the world and long for their Lord's ever-present love. They build temples in His name and install His image, chant His praises and thus invoke His presence. Lord Siva accepts all these temples as His own and sends a divine ray to vivify and vitalize them. Siva's Vedas annunciate, "Brahman is the priest, Brahman the sacrifice; by Brahman the posts are erected. From Brahman the officiating priest was born; in Brahman is concealed the oblation." Aum Namah Sivaya.

When Should One Attend the Temple ?


We attend the temple to commune with God Siva, Karttikeya or Ganesha at least once each week and additionally on auspicious days of the month, yearly festival days and on the holiest day of the year, Mahashivaratri. Aum.

At the heart of every Hindu temple is a cave-like sanctum sanctorum within which God abides, as He abides in the cranial cave of every soul. A devotee approaches a Sivalinga, hands outstretched imploringly as he seeks Siva's blessings during puja.


Saivites consider it most important to live near a Siva temple, and we build one wherever we find ourselves in the world. This is a most meritorious act, earning blessings in this life and the next. Religious life centers around the temple. It is here, in God's home, that we nurture our relationship with the Divine. Not wanting to stay away too long, we visit the temple weekly, though women never go during their monthly period. We strive to attend each major festival, when the Shakti of the Deity is most powerful, and pilgrimage to a far-off temple annually. Devout Siva bhaktas attend daily puja in the temple. All Saivites visit the temple on Siva's most sacred day of the year, Mahashivaratri. Saivite temples are the most ancient of all. Being the homes of the Gods and God, they are approached with great reverence and humility. Draw near the temple as you would approach a king, a governor, a president of a great realm, anticipating with a little trepidation your audience with him. The Vedas say, "May the Lord find pleasure in our song of praise! Priest among men, may he offer due homage to the heavenly beings! Great, O Lord, is your renown." Aum Namah Sivaya.

Aum Namah Shivaya.

Cutting all the stones to be cut, carving all the stones to be carved, boring all the stones to be bored, such are the three aspects of the shilpi's art.

Having worshiped Nandi in the Southeast -- two-eyed, two-armed, black in color, having the formidable three-pointed trident of Siva, with a crest and twisted locks of hair -- in the Southwest, he should especially worship Mahakala, black in color, two-eyed, two-armed, with white garment, two-legged, having an awesome form, equipped with a noose and a tusk, and endowed with all ornaments.

Tirumantiram 2411. TM

When in Siva's temple worship ceases, harm befalls the ruler, scanty are the rains, theft and robbery abound in the land. Thus did my holy Nandinatha declare.

Tirumantiram 518. TM

The unholy town where no temple stands, the town where men do not wear the holy ash, the town which does not resound with sacred song, the town which is not resplendent with many shrines, the town where the white conch is not reverently blown, the town where festive canopies and white flags are not seen, the town where devotees do not gather flowers for the worship rite, that town is no town. It is a mere wilderness.

Tirumurai 6.309.5. PS, 149

He approached and entered the temple where the Lord who has the golden mountain for His bow dwells in delight. He circumambulated it, prostrated himself at the sacred courtyard, entered the presence of the three-eyed God, the bull-rider crowned with matted, red hair.

Periyapuranam 5.21.252. PS, 49

Gather flowers and carry water pure; bathe Him and lay the flowers at His radiant Feet; stand and pray and adore Him in unfailing piety. Forever prosperous you shall be. Subdue the senses, hasten towards Him; surrender in totality and worship the Lord daily, offering water and flowers. He will surely accept your heart's offering.

Tirumantiram 1840-1841. TM

For the bounteous Lord, this heart is the sanctum holy, the fleshy body is temple vast, the mouth is the tower gate. To them that discern, jiva is Sivalinga; the deceptive senses are but lights that illume.

Tirumantiram 1823. TM В храме Шивы мы приближаемся к Богу Шиве и находим убежище от мирских забот. Его всепроникающая милость наиболее легко познается в пространстве храма Шивы. Именно в чистой среде храма три мира соединяются наиболее совершенным образом, так что преданные могут установить гармонию с духовными существами внутреннего плана.

I saw the Feet of the Lord, deckt in odorous Konrai blooms,
I saw the Feet of the Lord, dark-dressed in elephant-skin,
I saw the Feet of the Lord, on lotus-blossom enthroned,
I saw the Feet of the Lord, my heart-core's love within.

My God, Who melted by love my heart, let all adore;
My God, the Lord of primal Love, First of Beings ever,
My God, who again and again melts my heart, Nandi Lord,
May He render me His Love in foremost measure!

Inside Love is He; in outer Nature is He; as body also is He;
The past and future is He; the Lord of Rishis is He;
The Precious One, who inside Love resides,
Only those, who in Love reside, find in Him the Refuge free.
