Importance of the five faces of  Pamameshvara

  

1. SADYOJATA - WEST FACE 
West is called as "Paschima or Pratyak". The soul is called as "Pratyagaatma". Hence the west face of Shiva enters the Jeevi and causes JEEVANA (life) to be led. SADYOJATA is a compound of two words. "Sadyaha which means just now and Jataha means now born. Shiva makes his presence felt through the countless souls being born. Hence the apt name "SADYOJATA". This shows the creative aspect of Parameshvara. The well known "Pancha Brahma Mantra in the Vedas contain five stanzas and the first stanza Is about SADYOJATA aspect of Lord Shiva. Since the very existence of any being starts from its birth, the SADYOJATA aspect of Lord Shiva is prayed first.
 

2.VAAMA DEVA - NORTH FACE  

The term VAMA means Left or innocent. If we stand facing east, North direction is to our left. Hence the north facing Shiva is worshipped as "Vaama Deva". The left of a person is representative of the Shakti aspect. It represents "Maya and the feminine strength and beauty", Hence in ARDHA NAREESHWARA aspect, we find the goddess on the left side. 

 

The beautiful VAAMA DEVA is more ancient that the world's creation. Hence he is the eldest. Since he is more worthy than others, he is the best. In catastrophic times, he is Rudra. He is KAALA in creation and causes the erosion of one's age.

3. AGHORA - SOUTH FACE 

GHORA means dreaded. One gets dreaded because of Rajas and Tamas qualities. AGHORA means a raw state of being without the feelings of RAJAS and TAMAS qualities. This is raw energy. Pure knowledge is Pure energy. Hence Lord Shiva in the form of DAKSHINA MURTHY gives this pure knowledge to the seeker. But in Lord Shiva, along with this pure knowledge face exists the dreaded TAMAS and RAJAS forms. Lord Shiva displays the relevant nature of his being depending on the Karma cycle of a person. At the times of annihilation, Lord Shiva assumed the raw powers of nature and removes the living beings. Our prayers to that energy which assumes the form as needed. 

 
4. TATPURUSHA - EAST FACE 

The word "TAT" represents Paramatma. TATPURUSHA means Saguna filled Para Brahma form. This is a important face of Parama Shiva. The form of Shiva that is in meditation and Blessing the world - is this face. Hence this eastern face is considered as the first face. The word "TATPURUSHA" means "his person". One who is always behind a person to protect is TATPURUSHA. 

 

5. EESHANA - SKYWARD FACE 

The word ISHVARA is form the root "IiSHA - AISHWARYE". Total wealth means the total control and ownership of all the fourteen worlds. Such form of Shiva, who is the total owner of the fourteen worlds, is called as EESHANA. 


This face is skywards. Which means it is on top of the other four faces which face the four directions. This fifth face of Shiva represents the creation - balance - annihilation energies and control and chaos energies. EESHANA face of Shiva which is skywards indicates the total encompassing energy of Lord Shiva. This EESHANA aspect is correlated with the following

Sri Swamiji SaysSriSwamijiSays
Share  the  Divine  Knowlegde    

 

Instead of feeling depressed and distressed, you should adopt a counter attitude that "I am happy." Whatever you utter and say, it goes into yourself and it's affect is also on yourself. For the law is "Yad Bhaavam Tad Bhavati" meaning as is your attitude, so you are.  Hence if you want to remain happy, you should always think and say you are happy.  This is not self-deception. The spiritual truth is that you are made in the image of God whose very nature is "All Happiness."  Therefore, it is sheer ignorance of you think or talk of unhappiness. 

 

The moment you think about your problems or talk of them to other, the more imporance and power you are giving to them. Problems by themselves, in fact, are not there; it is only your mind which gives recognition and life to them. Your essential nature is pure happiness!

 

Man is not the mere physical body. He is the Atman (Self) encased in the body.  The Atman seeks release to join the Paramatman (Supreme Self).  The sacred mission of the Man is to help the process.
