A child, a brother, a charioteer, a warrior, a disciple, a guru, a cowherd, a messenger, the beloved of the gopis… Throughout his life, Krishna enacted so many roles—the whole time never forgetting. That they were just that, roles, and that his true nature was eternal, ever blissful consciousness. In this way, he was able to remain detached and thus perform flawlessly, never allowing the smile to fall from his face.

“There have been very few who have been able to rejoice both in victory and in defeat,”

Amma says. “Sri Krishna is one who celebrated both life and death. That is why he was always able to give a big smile.

He took birth with a smile on his face, lived with a smile, and left his body with a smile. The message that he conveyed through his life is that we should make life full of laughter.”

The Five Eternal Elements

When Bhagwan Swaminarayan set out on His spiritual journey at eleven years of age, He halted only after getting a reply to the question He had asked all across India. On His quest, He asked about the five eternal elements as revealed in the Vedas. He found a reasonable answer in Loj from Ramananad Swami’s chief disciple, Muktanand Swami. He accepted Ramanand Swami as His guru and then established the Swaminarayan Sampraday in Gujarat. Bhagwan Swaminarayan describes these five eternal elements and their relationship in great detail throughout the Vachanamrut.

pramukh swami tattoo These five eternal elements are: Jiva, Ishwar, Maya, Brahma, and Parabrahma. 

Jiva – The Soul

One’s true identity is not this human body, but the jiva that resides within it. The jiva, also called ‘atma’ or soul, is eternal – it cannot be destroyed. The jiva has no gender; it is neither male nor female. Bhagwan Swaminarayan discusses the nature of the jiva throughout the Vachanamrut. It is said to reside in our bodies in the same area as the heart. “Childhood, youth, old age, stoutness, thinness, birth and death are all aspects of the body.

On the other hand, being uncuttable, being unpierceable, not aging, being immortal, being the embodiment of gnan [wisdom], being the embodiment of bliss, and being characterized by eternal existence are all aspects of the atma; they should in no way be considered as belonging to the body.” The jiva is free and pure, but we believe that we are restrained by maya. Once we understand that we are not this body and worship Purna Purushottam Narayan, we realize that our jiva is free from the clutches of maya and is worthy of moksha. The very essence of the Brahma-Parabrahma spiritual journey is to believe one’s self to be the atma and not this body, to become atmarup, and to worship Purna Purshottam Narayan. 

Ishwar – Divinities

Ishwar transcends the jiva. It is the next element above the jiva. These beings partake in the creation, sustenance, and destruction of each universe. Ishwars are conscious spiritual beings that have greater realization than jivas.

While the jiva must work to realize its divine presence within the human body, ishwar is aware of that divinity. There are infinite ishwars, and but they are all bound by maya. Just as Purna Purshottam Narayan controls the jiva, He also controls the ishwars. Like the jivas, ishwars too aim to surpass maya and attain moksha.

Maya – Ignorance

Maya is the ignorance that separates the jivas and ishwars from Brahma and Parabrahma. It is the desire that hinders a spiritual aspirant’s path to moksha. Maya directly translates to attachment for worldly objects. Maya is the instrument through which Parabrahma facilitates karma and moksha. Only when a devotee is able to overcome maya overcome the darkness of attachment to worldly objects is he or she able to attain moksha. Maya manifests from physical matter, and it is difficult for the jiva or ishwar to transcend. Bhagwan Swaminarayan has advocated the jiva to engage in constant bhakti or devotion to God. To move beyond maya and towards one’s liberation.

Aksharbrahma – The Eternal Abode

The gunatit sadhu, Aksharbrahma, is the pathway to God and to moksha. It is only through Aksharbrahma that a jiva can associate itself with God and understand Him well enough to seek complete refuge in Him, thereby bringing the jiva out of the darkness of maya and into the light of Parabrahma. IParabrahma – GodIn the Vachanamrut, Bhagwan Swaminarayan has described this Supreme God as all-knowing, all-powerful and yet compassionate. This Parabrahma governs all the other four elements of jiva, ishwar, maya and brahma. Swaminarayan devotees believe Bhagwan Swaminarayan to be Parabrahma. In the Vibhuti Yoga Adhyaya of the Shrimad Bhagavad Gita, Shri Krishna speaks of that Supreme God living and working through him. Bhagwan Swaminarayan in the Vachanamrut says that Purna Purushottam Narayan resides in Akshardham and visits this Earth to establish dharma for the sake of His devotees. He is always present in human form (pragat).

As body art, the Shiva tattoo is suitable for placement on small, medium and large skin surfaces and there are a variety of different depictions available to suit all tastes and preferences however there are certain attributes which they all share. Lord Shiva always carries a trident to signify the triple gunas of Sattva, Rajas and Tamas, or Essence, Activity and Inertia. Snakes also feature frequently in these designs to represent Shiva’s’ power of destruction and to emphasize his connotations with death and endings. He is also illustrated in many depictions on a white bull and seated or wearing a tiger skin, against a backdrop of the Himalayas as this deity lived in this mountain region on Mount Kailasa so this is also widely used in body art designs, especially for larger more elaborate versions.

With so many tattoo enthusiasts opting to use their choice of body art as a means of expressing their individual beliefs and characteristics, there has been a significant rise in demand for faith-themed designs which make both a moral and personal statement.

Deities and imagery that features in far eastern philosophies like Hinduism are particularly popular, not least because these images are often brightly colored and beautifully detailed which really make them stand out when inked on the human skin.

The Hindu God of Destruction, Lord Shiva, is definitely one of the most favored and as the God of the Yogis too, he is immensely popular with those who want a design to reflect their spiritual beliefs, as much as their theological ones so let us find out more about the Shiva tattoo, to see what it has to offer for you.

Despite his dubious title as the destroyer of the world, Lord Shiva formed part of the Hindu holy trinity, coming after Brahma the creator and Vishnu who was responsible for preserving the world the former had created. However, as with all things, every aspect of our universe must have a beginning, middle and an end in order for the circle of life to continue, so in this respect Shiva is as essential a part of life’s cycle as the others. As a body art design, a Shiva tattoo offers a variety of meanings and symbolism which could serve the wearer is whatever respect is most relevant to them as an individual. To some he may serve as a reminder of the value of letting go and not holding on to tightly to bad habits and attachments that are in essence holding us back. Lord Shiva reminds us that by severing these negative connections we are ultimately freeing ourselves to accept the very best that life has to offer us without the restraints of self. This interpretation also ties in with the art of yoga and meditations where individuals strive to leave the material world and all that it represents behind them and replace it with inner peace, enlightenment and eventual transcendence. As the master of meditation, Shiva also represents this art in its deepest and most absolute form so this would also suit an individual who is following this path of study.
