The trishula has many symbolic meanings. Lord Shiva’s trishula is supposed to destroy the physical world and attachment to gross, illusionary world based on maya (illusion) and ego.
In Yoga, the trishula also represents the 3 main nadis or energy currents within the subtle body, Ida, Pingala and Shushmana. The central channel or Sushumna goes straight up the spine, continuing up through the crown chakra, where the other two channels terminate and which form a trishula-like shape.
In Hinduism, the trident symbol represents auspiciousness.
