ShivaName Meaning: Shiva is one of the most well-known deities in Hindu worship. One of the three members of the trinity known as Trimurthi (along with Vashnu and Brahma), Shiva is popularly known as the god of destruction, but it's also important to note that this destruction is the precursor to rebirth and reincarnation and is seen as a positive and natural aspect of life.

Shiva actually arrived late into the pantheon, becoming/overlying the older god Rudra due to his popularity. Shiva plays important roles in both the Mahabharata and Ramayana, two very famous epics of Hindu literature, where he grants favorites to his worshipers. His worshipers include well-known heros, but he's also popularly worshiped by demons. Shiva appears in different modes or forms. Please check the sources below to learn more about Shiva.
