Hindu mythology features scores of gods and goddesses, each apparently presiding over a certain aspect of life like wealth, education, etc. The top rung is occupied by three avatars though – Brahma (The Creator), Vishnu( The Mediator) and Shiva( The Destroyer). Mythological stories extensively feature the latter two but Shiva, among the three has always been the enigmatic type. The presence of Shiva can be seen in ancient Tibetan texts too, where he is depicted as this all-powerful mountain hermit or yogi. The popular imagery we have of him is that of a tall and strong muscular man, with long hair that is bound, clad in tiger’s skin, with a Trishul in his hand, and a small drum-like Dugdugi as his accessory. All other images of him revolve around this central idea that we have of him, as described in ancient texts. Some portray him as having three heads, some have him as one with four hands, some really ancient seals and figurines show him having horns on his head. Also, we all have come across the Nataraj avatar, the one where he is seen dancing- the Pralay Nritya, the dance that will give rise to a new universe. I am a great devotee of Shiva, and like reading info on him. Please share if you know of any unique story, incidence related to him.
