Shiva

Shiva

(Sanskrit - the good)

One who embodies all, the patronizing deity and ideal of the yogis. He is both Creator and creation, both immanent and transcendent. As the Impersonalized Deity, he is the Creator, the Guardian and the Destroyer.

As one of the three main gods of Hindu tritheism, he is the embodiment of the cosmic power of destruction. Usually referred to as Rudra or Maheshwara as in the hypostasis of God-destroyer.
