One day of Brahma has 14 Indras; his life has 54, 000 Indras. One day of Vishnu is the lifetime of Brahma. The lifetime of Vishnu is one day of Siva.

There are eighteen Mahapuranas, great Puranas, and the Siva Purana is one of them. Siva is a vivid retelling of the Siva Purana for today’s reader. The book contains all the major legends of Siva, bringing them alive again for a new generation.

The characters and events one encounters here are awesome, many are cosmic. Siva himself is the Auspicious One. He is Mahadeva, the greatest God.
