Trishul meaning and significance

 

Trishul has great significance in Hindu Religion, it is in the hands of almost all the deities but it but the significance is even more when it is held by Lord Shiva or Goddess. now why Trishul has been given so much of significance in our culture does have a very deep meaning which is beyond the apparent. let us try to understand …

 

Lord Shiva’s Trishul is supposed to destroy —-the physical world—attachment to gross the illusionary  world which seems so real ; the world of the mind—the ahamkaar or ego which is a barrier between Me  and HIM -–thus transforms  to be in the third world that is the world of spirituality –thus leads to oneness Shiva into a single non-dual plane of existence, that is bliss alone.

the trishula in human body represents three energy channels –ida, pingala and shushmana meet at the brow. Shushmana, the central one, continues upward to the 7th chakra, or energy center. While the other two end at the brow, there the 6th chakra is located. The trisula’s central point represents Shushmana. And that is why it is longer than the other two, representing ida and pingala.

SHIVA HOLDS THE HANDLE  means Lord is  BEYOND ALL THE TRIGUNAAS means HE is NIRGUN

As trident symbol represents auspiciousness ….so by praying and giving pure thoughts to the mind with devotion we can be ONE with the lord by balancing our thoughts and actions which can relieve us from  Past, present and future or agony of birth, life and death.  Thus help us to lead a life of bliss while still being under the protection of the almighty           –
