The Gods themselves contend in vain.....


  1. That is really sad - meanwhile Calgary is drowning in historic floods! We are escaping stabile Holocene climate fast!!


  2. Extremely fittingly Shiva (above) is either The Destroyer or The Transformer (see below from the wikipedia).

    At this particular moment he seems to be more "The Destroyer" than "The Transformer". But perhaps he will "auspiciously" change his role soon,

    " Shiva (/ˈʃɪvə/, meaning "auspicious one") is a Hindu deity. He is considered the Supreme God within Shaivism, one of the three most influential denominations in Hinduism.[2][3] In other branches of Hinduism such as in the Smarta tradition, he is regarded as one of the five primary forms of God.[2] He is "the Destroyer" or "the Transformer"[4] among the Trimurti, the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine"

    Shaivism (Sanskrit: शैव पंथ, śaiva paṁtha) (Tamil: சைவ சமயம்) is the oldest of the four major sects of Hinduism, the others being Vaishnavism, Shaktism and Smartism. Followers of Shaivism, called "Shaivas", and also "Saivas" or "Saivites", revere Shiva as the Supreme Being. Shaivas believe that Shiva is All and in all, the creator, preserver, destroyer, revealer and concealer of all that is.

    The Trimurti is a concept in Hinduism
    ... in which the cosmic functions of creation, maintenance, and destruction are personified by the forms of Brahmā the creator, Vishnu the maintainer or preserver and Śhiva the destroyer or transformer,"[69][70]
    These three deities have been called "the Hindu triad"[71] or the "Great Trinity",[72] often addressed as "Brahma-Vishnu-Maheshwara."
