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.

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal. Thanks sooo much for providing such hard-to-find and fair-priced items! Sincerely, David Briscoe

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
