Shiva in the City of Nectar sweeps across Heaven, Eath and the Underworld, as the mysterious and powerful blue-throated god sports with devas, asuras, sages, mortals and mythical beasts. In these 54 divine tales from ancient India, Shiva is portrayed in all his multi- faceted mystique- the tender lover who woos and wins Goddess Meenakshi; the eternal Guru who dispenses wisdom; the fierce avenger whose third eye flashes fire; the generous benefactor who showers blessings on his devotes and, above all, the gentle prankster who embodies the essence of vedic faith.
