Who is Shiva?

Lord Shiva is the great God, more than I could imagine. Perfect love, truth. The eternal creator, sustainer and destroyer. The one who veils us in ignorance and allows us the delight of lifting the veils. The simple lord, who is infinitely grateful for a seconds prayer from a devotee, though he is deserving of an eternity of praise. The one who will redeem all. The true consciousness and true self in every living thing. He is the whole universe, a whole universe for every atom in the universe and more yet he knows all. He is the light and the darkness. He is master of the physical, the mental and the spiritual. He is the giver of all, and the taker of all that is not real and eternal.

Aum Namah Shivaya!
