Siva (Shiva) the Greatest God
Siva (Shiva) the Greatest God
Description
Back of the Book

The paramount god of the Hindu Pantheon Maheswara or the Maha Ishwara meaning the greatest of Gods-Lord Siva is one whom no book can describe in totality. Believed to envelop the powers of genesis of existence and ultimate consummation, Siva- the Destroyer has so many manifestation attached to him by mythology that it is a very exhausting subject.

Yet an attempt has been here to present the lord, the various forms as Rudra Maheswara, Siva Nataraja and so no …in fact the whole spectrum of his being in an elaborate and comprehensive text amply of supported by sketches and illustrations.

Beginning with antiquity the book describes his malevolent and benevolent actions through the ages. The book will be of interest to Indologists, philanthropists art lovers and to general public in search of knowledge about Saivism.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
