Lord Shiva, his consort Parvati

Standard

Carl Jung Depth Psychology

Lord Shiva, his consort Parvati and a small Shiva Linga which is in the centre foreground.

Dr. Jung has refered to this holy union as the “mysterium coniunctionis”. Libido, the energy of the self and the universe. It gets confused with sex. But, it is embodied in the physical relationship between male and female as well as the pyschic relationship between the conscious and unconscious, the masculine energies and feminine energies within, with soul and spirit, with light and shadow.
