In Hinduism, the snake represents the Kundalini shakti.
Kundalini shakti is a female snake.
She normally sleeps coiled at the Muladhara chakra with her mouth covering the internal Shiva linga.
Shiva is a mahayogi.
His relation with snakes is obvious.
Shiva is the Lord of the Ashta Nagas, the eight great serpents.
This snake which the Lord is holding in his left hand was once thrown at him like a weapon.
He held and kept it with him.
It is a three-headed snake.
