SHIVA - AND HIS WORSHIP

One of the cults of the last named goddess has its counterpart which favoured the mysteries of ancient Rome and Greece. 

Shiva is inseparable from Ganga which, flowing from His matted locks, represents  purity and gives India its belt of plenty and high intellectual aspirations; from His  consort Uma, the benign Mother; from His son Kartikeya, the God of War, worshipped by the Gupta emperors, and worshipped today in the south as Subrahmanya; from the highly lovable Ganapati, the elephant headed god of  auspiciousness, intellect, wealth and valour, today the presiding deity of every home where purity and happiness reign; from Nandi, the beloved father of the bovine race, which, from time immemorial,  is linked with Indians in every aspect of life and unites them in sympathy with the animal world and secures them economic stability.
