Known as ‘Rudra‘ or ‘The Destroyer’, Lord Shiva is the supreme power. Smarta tradition says that, he is one of the five primary forms of God. Lord Shiva appears meditating in the Kailash Parvat. He has matted hair, which beholds the flow of pious Ganges and a bright crescent moon. His neck is coilde with a serpent and He holds a trident (trishul) in one of his hand. Devotees worship the Lord by offering milk, flower etc on the divine Shiva-Lingam. The festival of Mahashivratri is dedicated to Him. On the very day, believers maintain fast and offer prayer before the Lord.
