The Third Eye

Lord Shiva is also known as Tryambaka Deva, which literally means ‘three-eyed Lord,’ and is often depicted as having three eyes. While His right and left eyes represent His activities in the physical world, the third eye in the middle of His forehead symbolises spiritual wisdom and power. It sees beyond the apparent and also destroys the evil and evil-doers.
