Made from Solid Brass, this functional brass Padlock has the shape of the "Om" , a trishul or trident and Lord shiva engraved on the front of the lock with an ethnic paisley pattern in fine detail at the back of the padlock.
The snake around Lord shiva symbolizes alertness of the mind and body and his state of consciousness.
The Trident or Trishul represents the three aspects of consciousness – waking, dreaming and sleeping and represents the three gunas – satva, rajas and tamas. Holding a trishul (Trident) signifies that Shiva (the divinity) is above all the three states and yet is the upholder of these three states.
The letter OM next to Shiva signifies Om Namah Shivaya. The letters ‘Na’, ‘Ma’, ‘Shi’, ‘Va’, ‘Ya’, indicate the five elements – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether.
Om is the sound of the universe. Om means peace and love. So when there is peace, love and harmony in all the five elements then there is bliss and there is joy!
