After shocking the world with her new avatar as a 'saint', ex-Bigg Boss contestant and model-turned-nun Sofia Hayat has now made yet another bizarre statement - she has claimed that she gave birth to Lord Shiva.
During her recent visit to Kailash temple in Aurangabad, Sofia said she felt something so powerful that she knew she gave birth to Lord Shiva.
Yes, you read that right!
Here's what she wrote: "Kailash temple in Aurangabad is so so powerful. I couldn't breathe. I felt a massive magnetic energy draw my head to the Shiv Lingh. I was shaking for 1hr. I could not lift my head from the Shiv Lingh it was stuck like a magnetic. Something so powerful is happening. Om namah shivaya. My body is changing. Today I know I gave birth to Shiva. Today he came back to me and is inside me. I felt scared for such a big powerful change in my body. I am changing back to who I am. The Gods are coming back. The power in me is so great. Shiva is here inside me, I am inside the shiv lingham. It is so powerful I am shaking in my very soul. The time is here. Sacred children."
She wrote the above message alongside a 'teary' video posted on Instagram.
Sofia has also shared several photos and videos of her current pilgrimage in India. Take a look:
According to Linga Purana, the lingam is a complete symbolic representation of the formless Universe Bearer - the oval shaped stone is resembling mark of the Universe and bottom base as the Supreme Power holding the entire Universe in it.Similar interpretation is also found in the Skanda Purana: "The endless sky (that great void which contains the entire universe) is the Linga, the Earth is its base. At the end of time the entire universe and all the Gods finally merge in the Linga itself." In yogic lore, the linga is considered the first form to arise when creation occurs, and also the last form before the dissolution of creation. It is therefore seen as an access to Shiva or that which lies beyond physical creation.
A blessing on every corner. We are all blessings. The holy days are here. In Varanasi I really felt the spiritual power and my incarnations of the Holy Sacred Mother of all. I felt a knowing and a passion for the people who come here and worship. Its all for the mother, its all for you to remember who you really are. Namaste Gaia Mother Sofia
