Preface

Shiva literally means auspiciousness. He is the destroyer of all evil. Shiva is also regarded as a reproductive power, which restores what has been dissolved. As one who restores, he is represented as the Linga, a symbol of regeneration.

Shiva has 1,008 names, including Mahadeva, Rudra and Neelkantha. Shiva is believed to exist in many forms. His most common feature is dark-skinned yogi with a blue throat, usually seated cross-legged on a tiger skin, performing japa.

This book gives considerable knowledge on Shiva, through small stories. Hope the boo provides maximum interest to the readers.
