Designer of Universe

Our universe is extremely large. Its size is in crores and crores of meters. Such a big Universe, still everything is well designed. Moon, sun, everything is necessary, is there. The shape of the earth, the rotation of the earth, galaxies, how everything is there. Such a wonderful design. Even the design of atomic particles, time, the orbit of particles around a nucleus, and mathematical laws that control its behavior, how greatly designed.

Controller of Gravity, Motion - Normally everything seems automatic, but if Shiva wishes, they can change it anytime. They are the ultimate reason behind Universe runs.

Extremely fine-tuned Universe - Universe is such that it supports life. It has extremely rare to happen by chance.

Lord Shiva is present everywhere and nowhere

Lord Shiva is always there, even when everything destroys. When there is nothing, Lord Shiva is there. They are before the creation of Space, they are 'before' creation of time.

Creator of Gunas - Lord Shiva is Nirguna but created three Gunas, Satvaguna, Rajoguna, Tamoguna.

Cause of cause

Creator of laws - Every physical quality is associated with the Universe, is designed by Shiva.

Paradoxical - In Shiva Mahimna Stotra, Pushpadanta describes Shiva as one who's form seems horrible, like ash on the body, three eyes, snake on the neck, wearing skull; but there are great, holy auspicious one.


Shiva is the controller of the cosmos. Every moment of particles, the interaction of it is the only divine play of Lord Shiva.
