Summary "Worshipped by millions of Hindus worldwide, Shiva ("the auspicious one") is the god of love, righteousness, forgiveness, longevity, protection, health, and prosperity. He is said to bring good fortune, grace, and compassion. Shiva is depicted as clothed in ashes, with the crescent moon crowning his head, the holy river Ganges flowing from his matted hair, a third eye on his forehead, a serpent around his neck, and a tiger skin around his waist. As Nataraja, or "Lord of the Dance", he controls the forces of creation, preservation, and destruction. Author Demi presents the life and teaching of this central god within the Hindu pantheon, with illustrations that faithfully reflect the ancient traditions of Hindu painting and iconography. Also included is an appendix of Hindu prayers to the god Shiva and notes on his representation as "Lord of the Dance""-- Provided by publisher.
Subject Siva (Hindu deity) -- Juvenile literature.
