About the Book:

The Shiva Mahapurana is said to have come from the mouth of Lord Shiva Himself. It is an encyclopaedia of various branches of knowledge and ancient esoteric wisdom, handed down through the ages by the grace of the sages and rishis of this holy land of India. It is arranged in seven Samhitas and written in the Sanskrit language. The rarest pearls are hidden in the depths of the ocean and the most precious gems are embedded in rocks. One has to depend on someone to delve deep into the heart of the ocean or chip off the encasing rocks and expose these treasures to our eyes. Modern man has neither the time nor the knowledge of this ancient language to go through this voluminous book, however, wonderful it may be. Vanamali has condensed and picked out the most perfect of the pearls of this ancient wisdom and given it to us as in a form which is easy to read and simple to understand.

"He looked at me,
The conqueror of Love!
He turned His glance on this frail body,
He imbued these hands with strength and courage
To write about His divine glories!
O Thou Ocean of compassion!
Lover of the lowly and despised!
Shiva! Saviour of the world!
A million prostrations do I make
To Thee!
The blue-necked Lord of Parvati"

    I did enjoy this book vry much. For all that are a lovers of Shiva Mahadev this is a well written book with stories that will fascinate you and make your bhakti grow at glace
    I have to say though that after reading this book i was aspecting the other books by the autor to be as good as well but i was VERY disappointed. E
    Expecially the book " The sons of Shiva" is very boring, many things are repeated few times and sastrically
    speaking very incorrect. The autor is also in few pages also clearly stating that the Devata mention are mythology and only simbols and makes her own view conclusion which i stricly dislike and actually really disagrees with Sastras and Sanatan Dharma.
