information about Shiva Lord

Shiva Lord is one of the primary forms of divinity in Sanatan Dharma. Lord Shiva means the one who is kind and auspicious one.

Shiva's name is close to my heart, lot's of thing happened in my life which connected me to the Shiva Lord and I self-realized the qualities of Lord Shiva .

The features which define me, why continuing pure life is crucial for humans? I understood why Shiva devotees are nature, lover?

After understanding the virtues of Lord Shiva, I learned several lessons which helped me to grow in my life peacefully.

Few of them are -

  1. Ego is the destroyer of the strength (Shiva is the destroyer of Ego).
  2. Always be creative and transforming.
  3. Always stay calm in every situation (Self-control).
  4. Always being a Giver and never expect anything from anyone.
  5. Respect the feminism (Your consort is your biggest strength).
  6. Never have hard feelings for anyone.
  7. Never trick anyone, (Shiva never tricked anyone).
  8. Mind your own business, (Live like a Vairagi)
  9. Perseverance, austerity
  10. Simplicity is the best ornament.


It helped me to reduce my complexity regarding the life. Cleared my vision and made me understood the difference between materialistic and eternal joy.

Then on 18 December 2011, a serial aired on Indian television, Devon Ke Dev Mahadev. That show defined me the greatness of Lord Shiva.

I started reading about Shiva in spiritual books like Rudra Sahita, Shiva Mahapurana, ShivLeela.

That show made me understood, Why Shiva is called Mahadev? (Meaning - Why Shiva is known as Lord of Lords ?)

All these books are available on Geeta press publication in almost negligible prices.

Now let's get started with Shiva Lord.

Complete information about Shiva Lord

In this article, we have published significant information about Shiva lord. After reading this post, you will realize; who is Lord Shiva?

We request you to please read the full article to understand the Complete information about the Shiva Lord who holds a special place in Sanatan Trinity.

About Trinity

Shiva Lord is one of the prominent parts of the Hindu Trinity which consists of Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh . Mahesh means Shiva Lord.

  1. Brahma - Brahma is the creator of the universe.
  2. Vishnu - The guardian of the creation.
  3. Shiva - The destroyer of Darkness and evil.

It is a cyclic process which follows each other.Here destruction is taken in a positive sense.

Here destruction is like cracking of eggshell so that new life could come and grow in this world.

They all work in their respective domains and dimension and hardly interfere with each other work.

Shiva and Vishnu

There is no need to think who is more dominant among Trinity? People who are not aware of the inner core of Sanatana Dharma, compare them with each other.

They are the three distinct forms of one supreme governor (Sadashiva / Adishakti). Still on an iconographical basis people compares trinity with each other.

Lord Brahma is not that sturdy as compared to Shiva and Vishnu.

Once Vishnu defined to Goddess Laxmi that Shiva resides on his heart half part whereas the other half section holds Goddess Laxmi & world etc.

Therefore Shiva is Vishnu Vallbha means Shiva is the one who is most dear to Vishnu. Similarly, Shiva projected himself as half Vishnu and half Shiva.

Therefore real devotees never differentiate them from each other.


Being the third member of the Trinity Shiva holds a leading place in the Sanatan Dharma.

No matter wherever you go in the world, you can easily find the emblem of Shiva Lord which proves that humanity has worshipped the supreme mighty as Shiva.

Hence, Shiva is a remarkably influential Lord mentioned in all Vedic text. If we read the Vedas carefully, they define Shiva as the destroyer, who is known for his kindness.

How can be a destroyer known for his kindness? That is what makes Shiva unorthodox, dynamic and we realize there is no one like Shiva.

In the highest form of Shiva, he is the master of the entire universe and cosmic phenomena. Shiva Lord consists of Dark Matter and Dark energy.

If you are thinking about what is Dark matter and Dark energy? It is a shapeless state of Shiva which is limitless and transcendental.

The entire universe is made up of Dark matter and Dark energy.

Lord Shiva is the greatest transformer who manifest himself, time to time to protect innocent from atrocities of the evil.

The energy which could take over their responsibility, Vishnu emerged and took responsibility as the preserver. Later Brahma appeared from the navel section of Lord Vishnu.

Brahma didn't realize the mystery of his birth and started a battle with Lord Vishnu regarding his superiority over Vishnu.

An intense battle started between Vishnu and Brahma, Ultimately Sadashiva appeared as an eternal fire pillar.

SadShiva as eternal fire Pillar commanded them to figure out the end of the pillar.

Vishnu accepted that he didn't get the end of the fire pillar whereas Brahma lied that he achieved the end of the fire pillar.

This lie made Sadashiva angry, Sadashiva cursed Brahma. Due to that Curse Brahma never got worshipped.

Both Brahma and Vishnu requested SadaShiva to take some form. So they could worship Sadashiva.

Sadashiva answered that -

Soon he will reappear as Rudra to take over the responsibility of destroyer of Darkness. After some time, SadaShiva appeared as Rudra on the Himalayas.

Once upon a time, a Shiva devotee tried to worship Shiva when Shiva was sitting with his consort Goddess Parvati .

Devotee requested mother Parvati to leave Shiva aside for a few moments so that he could worship Shiva alone.

That makes mother Parvati little bit of uncomfortable. She decides not to leave Shiva alone and sits closer to Shiva.

Although sage devotion was true towards Shiva only thing he was assuming wrong was, he was distinguishing Goddess from Shiva.

The sage was desperate to worship Shiva alone, therefore; Shiva manifested himself as half Shiva and half goddess Parvati.

The form which is known as Ardhanarishvara.

Vairagya is the easiest way to purify the soul and Karmas. People misunderstand the meaning of Vairagya and take consideration that leaving the family and getting freedom from responsibility is Vairagya.

On account of people welfare, Shiva neutralized them too. Bhasmasura was one of those demons. People have a great confusion that Shiva ran away from Bhasmasura.

In reality, Shiva could bypass Bhasmasura boon anytime.
