Shiva is the first Guru, the guru of the gurus of all the world. He is the source of all the sciences and the giver of all knowledge, both apara (relating to the world of duality) and para (the knowledge that liberates). He is the embodiment of renunciation, sacrifice and tapas. He is the bringer of all that is auspicious, the benefactor of the whole world. He is the ocean of compassion that receives the streams of our bad karmas, the fire of knowledge that burns away the body of our ignorance. This laminated yantra (sacred geometric symbol) is a representation of the qualities of Shiva. Available in 6x6 and in 3x3.
