The mount of Shiva

The  Nandi Bull. Symbol  of virility, strength and devotion to  Lord  Shiva, the  God  of all  Gods. Innumerable  legends  of  Nandi  abound (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nandi_(bull))

In  Hindu Religion, he is the chief guru of eighteen spiritual  masters (18 Siddhar ) including  Patanjali and   Thirumular.

Here is an  imposing  Nandi  bull  at  the  Visalatchi  Mantap (temple)  at the  Art  of  Living  International  Centre,  Bangalore.  Sitting  bang at  the  entrance  of the  main hall, cast  in  gleaming  metal,  he  surely  looks  impressive  !!!   A true  bull  if there  ever  was  one  !!
