Sorrow and Suffering

Man in the mouth of a snake. Trishula emerges from the top of the breath of the spirit. Man in the grip of sorrows saved by the spirit

There is no intrinsic evil. God Siva has created the principle of opposites, which are the means for the soul's maturation--beauty and deformity, light and darkness, love and hate, joy and sorrow.
