  1. Shiva is considered as the father of all knowledge. He is the beginning and end of Tantra to Mantra, from Yog to Samadhi. All knowledge rise and fall in him.
  2. He is the god among gods – Mahadev. He is Pashupati - the Lord of All Living Beings.
  3. Kaal or time is under his control and therefore he is Mahakaal.

  5. He is the father of Ganapati who is worshipped first in the universe.
  6. He is the husband of Mother Goddess Jagadamba.
