We dedicate this section on Saivism to Lord Siva, our beloved God.
Central to Saivism is Lord Siva, the most ancient,
most dynamic and potent divinity in the universe.
speaking, although Saivism is considered as a part
of Hinduism, it is a religion by itself.
It can be put on equal footing with other
major religions of the world based on the
number of adherents, literature, beliefs,
practices, philosophy and sub sects
that are peculiar to this ancient tradition.
In the history of
mankind perhaps there is no other divinity who has been revered for so long,
in so many forms and in so many diverse
cultures as Siva. Variously called as Shiva,
Sankara, Iswara, Maheswara, Parameswara,
Jagadiswara and so on, Lord Siva has been a constant
and potent factor in the evolution of our religious
awareness. Our minds fill with amazement as we delve deep into our ancient
past to understand the origins of our religious history
and his great value in the emergence of Hindu
culture and its distinct identity.
In this section we aim to provide comprehensive
information on Siva and Saivism. We will strive to add more
information in future. Readers are requested to
