One of the three great gods of Hinduism, Śiva is a living god. The most sacred and most ancient book of India, The Rg Veda, evokes his presence in its hymns; Vedic myths, rituals, and even astronomy testify to his existence from the dawn of time. In a lively meditation on Śiva - based on original Sanskrit texts, many translated here for the first time - Stella Kramrisch ponders the metaphysics, ontology, and myths of Śiva from the Vedas and the Puranas.

Who is Śiva? Who is this god whose being comprises and transcends everything? From the dawn of creation, the Wild God, the Great Yogi, the sum of all opposites, has been guardian of the absolute. By retelling and interweaving the many myths that keep Śiva alive in India today, Kramrisch reveals the paradoxes in Śiva's nature and thus in the nature of consciousness itself.
