Bhasmeshwar form of Shiva

Shiva, the greatest teacher, takes the Bhasmeshwar form to show to the world the futility of attachment and desires. Bhasmeshwar means one strewn with ash. He is at perfect ease being Himself. He has negated all socially accepted rituals and behaviors. He has detached himself from everything. Bhasmeshwar form of Shiva is the origin of the concept of the Avadhuta which was popularized by Lord Dattatreya and by many Saints.
