Salutations and adorations to the blissful Lord Siva, the lover of Uma or Parvati, the Lord of all beings (Pasupati).
Hara Maheshvara Shulapani Pinakadhrik Pashupati Shiva Mahadeva   He is Sivam (auspicious, Subham), Sundaram (beautiful), Kantam (effulgent). A daylong fast, a nightlong vigil, and the reverberating rhythm of sacred chants mark the day. Archeology suggests that the veneration of Zeus Labraundeos at Labraunda was far older than Plutarch imagined. All that is created must one day disintegrate; this disintegration is a return to the formless void from which creation may once again spring forth. As with its apparent cognate, "labyrinth", the word entered the Greek language as a loanword, so that without Plutarch's specific reference its etymology, and even its original language, would not be positively known. The loanword labyrinth was used in Greek, but the designation "The house of the Double Axe" for the palace at Knossos is doubted because the same symbols were discovered elsewhere.
Lord Shiva  is the master of Tantric yoga, an esoteric science of sexuality, and also the Lord of ascetics, renunciates and yogis. In England, "labrys" was introduced by Sir Arthur Evans in the Journal of Hellenic Studies XXI. He is the god of the battlefield, the cremation grounds, and inauspicious crossroads, and he is accompanied by demons, ghosts, and evil spirits. An oftern frightening deity, Shiva is also the exponent of the arts and the creator of dance.
Bael leaves are very sacred, for it is believed that Goddess Lakshmi resides in them. 109, "On Carian coins, indeed of quite late date, the labrys, set up on its long pillar-like handle, with two dependent fillets, has much the appearance of a cult image." It should be noted that the priests at Delphi were called Labryades (the men of the double axe).
The five hoods mean the five senses or the five Tattvas, viz., earth, water, fire, air and ether. Evans' article induced the word's inclusion in the Oxford English Dictionary (OED).The term, and the symbol, is most closely associated in historical records with the Minoan civilization, which reached its peak in the 2nd millennium BC, and specifically with the worship of a Goddess. Some Minoan labrys have been found which are taller than a human and which might have been used during sacrifices. That portion of Brahman that is enveloped by Tamo-Guna-Pradhana Maya is Lord Siva who is the all-pervading Isvara and who also dwells in Mount Kailas. During this ritual, we will hear many mantras and shlokas, while milk, yoghurt, water, butter, honey, sugar, fruit juices, bhasma powder etc are poured over the shiva lingam in pacifying the hot and fiery Shiva and invoking his blessings.
Lord Siva Himself became the five Tanmatras, the five Jnanendriyas, the five Karmendriyas and other groups of five. The labrys symbol has been found widely in the Bronze Age archaeological recovery at the Palace of Knossos on Crete. According to archaeological finds on Crete this double-axe was used specifically by Minoan priestesses for ceremonial uses. With Maya-Parvati He becomes the Saguna Brahman for the purpose of pious devotion of His devotees. Lord Shiva represents the aspect of the Supreme Being and is considered to be the destroyer of evil and sorrow.


The external Abhisheka with various objects will help the growth of devotion and adoration for Lord Siva and eventually lead to internal Abhisheka with pure abundant flow of love. When the individual attains knowledge through control of the senses and the mind, he finds his eternal resting abode in Lord Siva, the Supreme Soul.
Devotees of Rama must worship Lord Siva for 3 or 6 months before they take to worship of Rama. To find such an axe in the hands of a Minoan woman would suggest strongly that she held a powerful position within the Minoan culture.In the Near East and other parts of the region, eventually axes of this sort are often wielded by male divinities and appear to become symbols of the thunderbolt, but in Crete, unlike the Near East, this axe is never held by a male divinity, only by female divinities and her priestesses. The bull is a symbol of Zeus and indeed the labrys is associated with an archaic symbol of the thunder deity whom Zeus and others become as storm gods wielding their thunder weapons and are found in familiar motifs of Indo-European mythology. Examples are the Nordic god Thor, who hurls his mjolnir to cast thunder and lightning upon the earth, or Indra, who uses his favourite weapon the vajra. This indicates that Lord Siva is absolutely fearless and immortal.Generally serpents live for hundreds of years.
Ganga water, milk, ghee, honey, rose-water, cocoanut water, sandal paste, Panchamrita, scented oil, sugarcane juice and lime juice are made use of for Abhisheka.
The worship of it was kept up in the Greek island of Tenedos and in several cities in the south-west of former Hellenic Asia Minor, and it appears in later historical times in the cult of the thundergod of Asia Minor (Zeus Labrayndeus). An impression from a seal-stone shows the double-axe placed together with a zigzag line, which represents the flash of lightning" states Chr. It is said that He looks like an eternal youth because of his authority over death, rebirth and immortality. When Rudra is repeated once, the different articles of Abhisheka are made use of after every stanza of the Rudra. Blinkenberg[ Control over a frightening natural phenomenon such as lightning always has been a chief reason for propitiation of deities. The Abhisheka water or other articles used for Abhisheka are considered very sacred and bestow immense benefits on the devotees who take it as the Lord’s Prasad. In feminist interpretations (particularly by Marija Gimbutas) however, it is also interpreted as a symbol of the Mother Goddess and compared to the shape of a butterfly rather than an axe. Robert Graves interprets it as the symbol of the moon of the great goddesses, with the two curved edges indicating the waxing and waning phases on either side of a full moon.The word labyrinthos (Mycenaean daburinthos) is probably connected with the word labrys.
Lord Shiva is the third member of the Hindu Trinity, the other two being Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu. Owing to His cosmic activity of dissolution and recreation, the words destroyer and destruction have been erroneously associated with Lord Shiva. He teaches silently that people should have pure heart and entertain pure thoughts and should be free from crookedness, diplomacy, cunningness, jealousy, hatred, etc.
On the "Perseus Vase" in Berlin (F1704; ca 570?560 BC), Hephaestus ritually flees his act of slicing open the head of Zeus to free Athena whose pregnant mother Zeus swallowed to prevent her offspring from dethroning him.
The more usual double-headed instrument of Hephaestus is the double-headed smith's hammer so the symbolism is important. Zeus swallowing the goddess symbolized the progressive suppression of the earlier traditional religious beliefs, symbolically dethroning the goddess, Metis, but allowing Athene (her daughter) to be "born" of Zeus because her worship was so pervasive and widespread that it could not be suppressed. It is He who formed the Sanskrit language out of the Damaru.The crescent moon indicates that He has controlled the mind perfectly.


That is likely the reason the labrys was depicted as the instrument used by Hephaestus (who much earlier had been a consort of the Earth goddess) to release Athene. Then Sri Rudram (chapter 16 & 18 of Yajur Veda) is recited and the Shiva Linga abhishekam is done with the prescribed 11 ingredients. People should destroy their egoism and mineness (Ahamta and Mamata) before they attain the Lord. His holding a deer on one hand indicates that He has removed the Chanchalata (tossing) of the mind. The Sri Rudram identifies 346 desires of human beings to be fulfilled to have a peaceful daily life and invokes Lord Rudra to fulfill all of them. The Astrology scriptures have repeatedly prescribed this as a remedy for several planetary Doshas.
During the period of the 4th of August Regime (1936?1941), the labrys was used as the main symbol of the regime-sponsored National Organisation of Youth (EON), as its leader, Ioannis Metaxas believed the symbol to be the first symbol of all Hellenic civilizations. Whether you want peace or prosperity, progeny or progress in profession, health or wealth the Rudrabhishekam Pooja is the ideal one. He is Trilochana, the three-eyed One, in the centre of whose forehead is the third eye, the eye of wisdom.
Further, it is used by Cretan folklore preservation societies and associations both in Greece and abroad, on occasion with the modern Greek spelling "lavrys".
He also is represented by Mahakala and Bhairava, the terrible, as well as many other forms including Rudra. The third eye in the centre of His forehead represents His destructive energy which when let loose destroys the world.
Around his neck and arms are serpents, while he also wears the rudraksha beads sacred to him.
He is smeared with ash, as that is all that remains at the dissolution of the universe, which he presides over.
This dissolution of the universe comes when his third eye opens, the whole metaphor referring to the realisation of one's own consciousness, which is Shiva. His right hand shows the mudra dispelling fear, while in his left he holds the trident, symbol of the three worlds, on which is bound the damaru.
Shiva-Shakti also have a form called Ardhanarishvara, the meditation image showing the devi as red coloured and voluptuous, as one half of the body, the deva as the other half having a terrifying and fierce aspect.
Mahadeva Shiva is also lord of all beings of the underworld, including bhutas (elementals), pretas (ghosts), and pishachas (flesh eaters) and the rest. He is sometimes pictured on a horse, followed by his retinue of siddhas (accomplished ones), bhairavas (terrifying forms of Shiva), yogis and the rest.
