INTRODUCTION

The legends of some of the ancient Sivaalayas are so soul lifting that they held tight grip and metamorphosed me into altogether a changed man, yes changed outlook, purpose, goal etc.  And subjectivity, thus substituted by objectivity gave scope for inclusion of many temples.  It encompasses wider field, ready to serve greater number with stronger appeal.  A wide range of infinite number of sports he played, I thought then, deserve wider canvas and broader visualization.  As I turned the pages, the picture that emerged seemed so colourful and multifaceted that I determined instantly to alter the title from - That Lord Siva I Adored, to that Lord Siva to be Adored, which positively accommodates greater number and allows to be fed by a multifarious kinds of writing to suit the new scheme thought of.  Then came another point demanding deep deliberation-what to augment and how many temples to be included.  As if a bolt from the blue, a new wave rising suddenly inspired me to touch upon certain basic concepts of Siva, like his paratattva, mysticism of the cosmic dance, efficacy of the Siva, like his paratattva, mysticism of the cosmic dance, efficacy of the Siva Panchakshari, types of prayer services; emblems of Siva etc.  Deeming it useful and plausible I stretched my hands for feed bottle, and lo!  I was overpowered by the fund of relevant information glancing at me covetously.
