Description:

The book is an attempt at demystifying one of the chief deities in the Hindu triumvirate, Shiva, the transformer. As Gangadhara, the carrier of the Ganges; as Pashupati, the lord of cattle; as Bhairav, the spirit of austere penance, the book delves into the many identities of a paradoxical Godhead. With a plethora of stories, unfamiliar and untold, a key to the deity’s chief symbols, a map to jyotirlingas, and a list of the ravel-haired god’s many names, Shiva: An Introduction takes the reader on a journey through Shaivite philosophy, history, folklore, ritual and myth.
