Names of Lord Ishvar

Shiva or Siva, is one of the main Deities of Hinduism, worshipped as the paramount lord by the Saivite sects of India. Lord Shiva is called the Greatest God (Mahadeva) and even God of Gods (Devadeva). He is mysterious and complex. Shiva as Rudra is considered to be the destroyer of evil and sorrow. Shiva as Shankara is the doer of good. Shiva has many forms, which are visible in his Panchavaktra form with 5 heads, a combination of all Shiva energies : Aghora (resides in the creamation grounds), Ishana (most often appears as the shivalingam), Tat Purusha (meditating), Varna Deva (the eternal Shiva) and Saddyojat or Braddha Rudra (the old wrathful form). The last also forms the connection to the Rudraksha mala - a rosary made of the dried fruits of the Rudraksha tree.
