Shiva, the Mahayogi, is meditating on Mount Kailash in the Himalayas. He
sits on a tiger skin, the symbolic meaning of which expresses desire and depicts
Shiva having overpowered it. He is seated in the lotus posture, his body erect in
concentration, one hand raised in a posture assuring protection to his
devotees and the other holding the long stem of the trident, the three
prongs representing the Sattva, Rajas & Tamas gunas. He is garlanded by
snakes and sacred rudraksha beads. His matted locks are held in place by
none other than a serpent with Ganga pouring from it. Shiva's eyes remain
shut as he meditates and the upturned lips gives the image an expression of
contented smile. In the middle of his forehead is the third eye with which
he killed Kama.
