Shiva is known as Mahayogi, the ideal yogi, and he is known for his devote spiritual practices and for his amazing spiritual powers. The cobra on Shiva’s head represents the purifying and enlightening spiritual power (kundalini) that resides within everyone at the base of their spine. The holiest of the holy rivers, the Ganga, seen flowing from the crown of Shiva’s head represents spiritual purification. Shiva is often depicted with blue skin, due to a story of him drinking an ocean of poison but not swallowing it which turned his throat blue.
