Incarnations of Lord Shiva

Incarnations of Lord Shiva

Lord Shiva has many incarnations but we are describing five most of his incarnations, yet people do not know about them.

Tat Purusha: On earth, in the 21st Kalpa known as Peetavasa, Lord Brahma only wore yellow apparels.  Lord Brahma’s prayers resulted into the manifestation of an effulgent entity, considering those entities as Lord Shiva; Lord Brahma started chanting the Mantras of Shiva Gayatri. When he finished chanting the mantas, numerous avatars were born all wearing yellow clothes.

Namdeva: During the 20th Kalpa named ‘Rakta’ (blood), the complexion of Lord Brahma turned red, while he was busy in his deep meditation. That time, an entity was born whose complexion was also red. Lord Brahma named him Namdeva considering him to be an incarnation of Shiva; later on four sons were born to Namdeva.

Sadhojat: Lord Brahma gave him the name Sadhojat and eulogized him, later on from the physique of Sadhojat four of his disciples manifested, whose names were – Nandan, Sunand, Upanandan and Vishwanandan.

Ishan: During the Vishwaroop Kalpa, manifestations of Saraswati and Ishan Shiva took place. From Ishan Shiva four divine entities were born named, Jati, Shikhandi, Mundi and Ardhamundi.

Ghoresh: This time a black avatar was born while Lord Brahma was engrossed in his meditation. Their names were Krishna, Krishnashikha, Krishnamukha and Krishnakanthdhari.
