Shiv Maha Puran

To attain virtues equal to the performance of all the yagyas


Shiva MahaPuran is one of the 18 Puranas. It was written by Rishi Ved Vyas. It consists of 24,000 Shloka's in 7 Samhitas. It describes the story of Lord Shiva. Each Samhita has a name and they are as follows: Vageshwari Samhita, Rudra Samhita, Shatrudra Samhita, Kotirudra Samhita, Uma Samhita, Kailash Samhita, Vayaviya Samhita.

By understanding the mysteries of Shiv Mahapuran and singing its praises, a man attains greater virtues than that which could be attained by being charitable or by the performance of all the `yagyas'. Contemplating on the subject matters of Shivmahapuran give auspicious fruits just like a 'Kalpa-taru' (A tree which fulfills all the wishes).

The Shiva Purana discusses the principles and the practical practices for achieving success in all aspects of Life on earth and other realms more thoroughly. It is a perfect combination of story, truth principles, and rituals, which build the power of God into our minds and our bodies. Knowledge of the Shiva Purana has produced numberless spiritual masters who have conquered all aspects of death and achieved practical perfection.

Being aware that human beings anyway tend to ignore the traditional ways of worship like yagnas and so on, Lord Shiva has prescribed that listening to Siva Purana and about Siva Leelas would be as good a route to achieve the Four ‘Purushardhas’ viz. Dharma (Virtue), Ardha (Prosperity), Kama (Fulfilment of Worldly Desires) and Moksha (Salvation).

Puranas open up wide windows and doors to the Spiritual World, destroy ignorance, illuminate vistas of knowledge and enlighten about the happenings of the Past, guide about the Present time’s do’s and don’ts and warn or caution about the customary pitfalls and traps that ought be avoided in future.. That is why Purana ‘Sravana’, or ‘Pathana’ or ‘Manana’ is an integral part of enlightening of human psyche. Whether it is about the gains of illustrious persons in the past, the vision of Rishis, the ways of the virtuous and of the evil forces, the sacrifices of the committed persons, the vindication of Truth finally, the bench mark attainers among the Sages and Devotees and the exemplary actions of Avataras (Incarnations) prove again and again that The Super Power Himself or Herself does exist. The methodology of devotion to Almighty, the secrets of the Universe, Creation, Preservation, Destruction, Planets, Concepts of Time, Tatvas, and so on are all included in the Puranas. In special reference to Siva Purana, all these aforementioned aspects plus several special features of Siva Gyan ranging from ‘Abhishekas’ to ‘Archanas, Worship to Sayujya, Parthiva Lingas to Dwadasa Jyotirlingas, Austerities to Attainments, Aspects of this world one lives in and of those other worlds, about virtues and evils, and the Final Truth of Existence.

Yat punyam Sarvadaaneshu Sarva Yajgneshu va Muney, Shambhoh Purana Shravanaath phalam nischaya bhavet
