Shiva is the Chief of the Guna tribe of Mount Kailash, before he decided to emigrate from his Tibetan homeland. In ancient North India, the land of the Sapt Sindhu, Shiva was recognised as the prophesied Destroyer of Evil.
Shiva is also known as the Mahadev (God of Gods) and the Neelkanth because of his blue throat.
Shiva married Sati and abolished the vikarma law. He waged a war against the Chandravanshis after believing that they, along with Nagas, were resposible for the death of his friend: Brahaspati. He later realised that they were not evil. After discovering that Brahaspati is alive, and allying with the Vasudevs, Chandravanshis from Kashi, Suryavanshis from Mrittikavati, and the Vayuputras, Shiva decided to wage a holy war against the true evil: the Somras which made him the Neelkanth.
He destroyed Devagiri with the Pashupatiastra after Sati's death, destroying the Somras and killing most of the Meluhans. Because of the guilt of killing Parvateshwar, Anandmayi and his innocent mother-in-law Veerini, as well as breaking his vow of not using the Pashupatiastra, Shiva exiled himself from India, settling on Kailash once again and establishing a new tribe, led by Veerbhadra. He is the father and stepfather of Kartik and Ganesh respectively.
He is one of the five primary forms of God in the Smarta Tradition,and "the Destroyer".
At the highest level, Shiva is regarded as formless, limitless, transcendent, and unchanging as well.]Shiva also has many benevolent and fearsome depictions.In benevolent aspects, he is depicted as an omniscient Yogi who lives an ascetic life on Mount Kailash, as well as a householder with wife Parvati and his two children, Ganesha and Kartikeya, and in fierce aspects, he is often depicted slaying demons. Shiva is also regarded as the patron god of yoga, meditation, and arts.
