Summary
"The traditional understanding of Shiva told through stories and teachings from the Shiva Mahapurana. Explains Shiva's contradictory forms, such as destroyer or benefactor, and how his form depends on the needs of the devotee. Reveals how Shiva's teachings allow one to see through the illusions at the root of all grief and alienation in human life. Explores Shiva's relationships with Durga, Shakti, Sati, and Parvati and with his sons Ganesha and Kartikeya."--
