SIVAPARATATTVA AND ITS IMPORT

Siva, the disyllabic word, though appears short and common place - uttered by one and all, and heard day in and day out, its significance is beyond explanation and explication.  Although it means 'Subham' - auspiciousness, it encompasses the widest spiritual world and enshrines in itself the quintessence of the Hindu theism in its prestine form and fullest splendour.  It is a shortened form, standing for Maheswar, one of the TRIO, holding the august office of LAYA - dissolution of the life of the created beings.

And he is the Ultimate reality and equated with Parabrahman as referred to in the Upanishads.  It is this paratattva that comprises an inexhaustible wealth of meaning that explains the cause of cosmos.  It transcends the three principal gunas - sublime, passion and ignorance satvarajastamastrigunateeta. It is ever auspiciousnityamangala; ever blissful - sadasukhaprada; and ever consoling - nitya sampritikara. It is eternal - sanathana; the cause of all causes - sarvakaranakaraka; protector of worlds -Jagadrakshaka; and bestower of emancipation -  mokshapradayaka.
