Saivism - A Survey 

Saivism is one of the six major schools of Hindu Philosophy. In terms of literature it produced; propounders claimed; impact exerted; adherents gained; popularity enjoyed; temples established; etc., its place is beyond guess; currency inestimable and attraction indescribable. In fine, its appeal is global. The other sects such as Vaishnavam, Saktam, Ganapatyam, Souram, Kaumaram pale into insignificance, if any attempt is made to institute a comparative study - its following is phenomenal. Not that the intrinsic worth of others is less, nor potentialities, insignificant, but the place the Saivism is accorded by the immortal scriptural writings, particularly the Vedas make it soar higher than the highest; for, they proclaim and end "Sivaatparam taram nasti" - there is no god equal to HIM. In fine, He is unique.
