I am publishing 45 pictures  from a 119 year old book in Parts . The book is Siva Maha Purana, available at the British library in London. I will give brief description in English along with the pictures of Lord Siva.

சைவ புராணம் என்னும் சிவ மஹா புராணம் 1900-ம் ஆண்டு வெளியானது. இதில் சுமார் 45 படங்கள் உள்ளன. அவற்றை பகுதி பகுதியாக வெளியிடுகிறேன் இந்த புஸ்தகம் லண்டனிலுள்ள பிரிட்டிஷ் லைப்ரரியில் உள்ளது

This is part 2

Picture 6 (above)

When Uma is doing Puja to Shiva, Manmatha, God of Love, is firing his five Flower arrows. When Manmatha does it one willget amorous feelings

Picture 7

Shiva in disguise, is testing Uma’s devotion to him. This is beautifully described in Kalidasa’s Kumara Sambhava. When she passed his test, he appeared in his usual form.

Picture 8

According to Siva’s wish, the Seven Seers (Sapta Rishis) went to the King Parvatharajan (King of Himayan Region) and asked him Uma’s hand to Siva. Loot at the Seven Great Rishis Atri,Brhu, Kutsa, Vasistha, Gautama,Kasyapa and Angirasa. Vasistha’s wife Arundhati, embodiment of Chastity, according to Sangam Tamil Literature, is also present.

Picture 9

All the Devas (divine personalities) were invited to the wedding of Uma with Shiva. Look at the picture of guests! The artist has taken enough pain to show Ganesh, Skanda, Indra and all with their symbols or Vahanas. Good imagination. Try to identify as many devas as you can.

Picture 10

Wedding scene of Shiva and Uma. Look at the traditional South Indian decorations of Plantain Trees (Banana) and the Kanya Dhanam (donating by pouring water) . Hindus originated in India and so they use water from birth to death in all the SUBHA and ASUBHA  actions. They did not come from outside India is proved by their Mantas on the power of water in the Rig Veda, the oldest book in the world, dated 6000 BCE by BG Tilak and Herman Jacobi.

(subha and Asubha= auspicious and inauspicious)

Adam and Eve : Jokes

Compiled by S.Nagarajan

There are hundreds of jokes available about Adam and Eve. Given below is some of them.

1

      “God, I’ve been thinking..” says Eve one day.

“What’s on your mind Eve?” says God.

“Well, I know that you created me and this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful creatures, but lately I’ve been feeling that maybe there’s more to life.”

“Go on…” says God.

“Sometimes I get a bit bored – I fancy a bit of fun. And I get a bit fed up with all the heaving lifting and carrying, and warding off the mammoths and sabre-toothed tigers, not to mention that bloody snake. This garden can be dangerous place.”

“I see,” says God, pausing for thought.

“Eve, I have a cunning plan,” says God, “I shall create Man for you.”

Man?” asks Eve, “What is Man?”

“Man…” says God, “Is a flawed creature. He will have many weaknesses and disgusting habits. Man will lie, cheat and behave like an idiot – in fact mostly he’ll be a complete pain in the backside. But on the plus side he’ll be big and strong, and will be able to protect you, and hunt and kill things, which might be handy sometimes. He will tend to lose control of mind and body when aroused, but with a bit training can reach an acceptable standard in the bedroom department, if you know what I mean.”

“Hmm,” says Eve, “Seems like this Man idea might be worth a try, but tell me God, is there anything else I need to know?”

“Just this,” says God, “Man comes with one condition… In keeping with his arrogant, deluded, self-important character, Man will naturally believe that he was made first, and frankly we all have better things to do than argue, so you must keep all this a secret between us, if that’s okay with you. You know, woman to woman..”

2

Painting A Briton, a Frenchman and a Russian are viewing a painting of Adam and Eve frolicking in the Garden of Eden. “Look at their reserve, their calm,” muses the Brit.

“They must be British.”

“Nonsense,” the Frenchman disagrees. “They’re naked, and so beautiful. Clearly, they are French.”

“No way! They have no clothes and no shelter,” the Russian points out, “They have only an apple to eat, and they are being told they live in a paradise. Obviously, they are Russian.” 

3

Sherlock Holmes was sent to heaven to find Adam and Eve.

He came back within a day and said he had found them.

Watson : “How did you find them so quickly?”

Sherlock Holmes : “Elementary, my dear Watson, they were the only ones that didn’t have belly buttons!”

4

How did Adam introduced himself to Eve?

“Madam I’m Adam”

This is a palindrome.

Read left to right or right to left, the same words will appear!
