Shiva



(Sanskrit सिव) A multifacted symbol in the Hindu pantheon.

"Lord Siva is the pure, changeless, attributeless, all-pervading transcendental consciousness. ... At the end of Pralaya, the Supreme Lord thinks of re-creation of the world. He is then known by the name Sadasiva. He is the root-cause of creation. From Sadasiva creation begins... [Additionally,] Lord Siva represents the destructive aspect of Brahman... He destroys all bondage, limitation and sorrow of His devotees. He is the giver of Mukti or the final emancipation. He is the universal Self. He is the true Self of all creatures. He is the dweller in the cremation-ground, in the region of the dead, those who are dead to the world. The Jivas and the world originate from Him, exist in Him, are sustained and rejected by Him and are ultimately merged in Him. He is the support, source and substratum of the whole world. He is an embodiment of Truth, Beauty, Goodness and Bliss. He is Satyam, Sivam, Subham, Sundaram, Kantam. He is the God of gods, Deva-Deva. He is the Great Deity—Mahadeva." - Swami Sivananda, Lord Siva and His Worship

The Hindu Creator and Destroyer, the third aspect of the Trimurti (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva). The Third Logos. The Holy Spirit. The Sexual Force. The Sephira Binah. Symbolized by a Linga / lingum, a male sexual organ.
