Briefly About Lord Shiva
Shiva (Siva) is one of the most revered gods in the Hindu pantheon and is a member of the holy trinity (the Trimurti) of Hinduism with Brahma and Vishnu. Lord Shiva represents goodness, benevolence and serve as the Protector. He is also associated with Time, and particularly as the destroyer and creator of all things.
Shiva is also the great ascetic, abstaining from all forms of indulgence and pleasure, concentrating rather on meditation as a means to find perfect happiness.
Shiva is the most important Hindu god for the Shaivism sect, the patron of Yogis and Brahmins, and also the protector of the Vedas, the sacred texts. As a result, they are a lot of Lord Shiva temples in India.
Shiva’s wife is Parvati, often incarnated as Kali and Durga. His three sons are Lord Ganesha, the elephant-headed god, Skanda or Lord Kartikeya, the god of war and Lord Kubera, the god of treasures.
