In His meditative state, He is beyond distractions. He was earlier known as Rudra, or the Fearful andDestructive One. Though the power of destruction, which in the most intensified form makes him a Bhairava,'The Terrible Destroyer',remains Shiva's principal attribute, the corollary of that attribute, namely creation or fertility, is also central to the identity of Shiva. Siva’s arropa is represented by the Lingga.
Lord of Love, who had the impunity to tempt Shiva with amorous thoughts of his consort Parvati. Yes, She did break his meditative state. But then again the Lord continued his penance and sat in meditation.
He appeared with Her as Ardhnarishwara, half-man and half-woman representation is to unravel the multiple layering of Hindu thoughts and spiritual epithets, that one is nothing without the other. She is part of Him being Nilakantha, the blue-throated; Panchanana, the five-faced; Nataraj, TheLord of Dancers; and Trilochana, the three-eyed.
In His meditative mode, He appears as the yogi, in whom are concentrated all the powers acquired by meditation, penance, and a life of austerity, or as the naked ascetic
Digambara, with matted hair and a body smeared with ashes.
According to Puranic mythology, Shiva's home is on Mount Kailash, at the foot of which is the pure stand holiest lake to be found anywhere, Manasarova. He walks such sacred places inherent of the calmness of meditation and serenity.
Nothing distracts Shiva as he is also the maya of distraction and anything else that appears worldly. Iconically, Lord Shiva is also recognized by the presence of the vahana, Nandi the bull, or by the Trishul, the weapon that he carries with him.
Hara Hara Mahadeva.
