I am thankful to the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan for their co-operation in publishing this book.
This book is a compilation of Lord,Sivas sayings from the Sitvr Purina, Linga Purina, Siva Sarnhita, Siva Sutra and one quotation from the life of the sage Sri Sankaracarya (incarnation of Lord Siva).
This book contains the quintessence of Lord Siva's infinite wisdom.
It is my hope that this book will be beneficial for those great souls who are devotees of Siva. Those desiring more details or clarifications on the worship of Lord Siva, should consult the above-mentioned books.
It is not possible to comprehend the grace of Lord Siva through the intellect, bu through the heart.
Also included is the thousand names of Lord Siva. The mere recitation of these names will bring untold benefits and is highly pleasing to Lord Siva
It is due to Lord Sivas grace alone that his devotees attain achievements which cumulate into final liberation. I wish to dedicate this book to may loving parents Mercy and LATE Padbldri Lokaya Kottyam who are my source of inspiration.
May Lord Siva, the Divine Mother Parvati, their Sons and their Ganas bless those in eternal quest for them.
Om Namah Sivaya
