LAND OF SHIVA
Shiva is symbolized with destruction which ultimately leads us to the path of creation. Shiva's trishul is meant to destroy this illusionary physical world which is basically the consequence of our ahamkaar or ego. The breaking down of this barrier is the pre-requisite of ones entry into the third world - where spirituality is the ultimate existence. Trishul is synonymous to Shiva. Shul means problems or suffering and trishul means that which destroys all kind of suffering. Trishul relieves us from past, present and future or from the agony of birth, life and death.
