About the Book

Sivapuranam occupies an important place in the Shaivaite tradition as a simple yet powerful description of unconditional, humble devotion and love of Shiva. With his lucid explanations, careful and interpretations  and scholarly analysis, Dr. Raman has performed an admirable and welcome service to help all appreciate its religious significance and literary beauty. In his own inimitable, delightful style, Dr. Raman brings together ideas and thoughts from different works to emphasize the commonality of principles and philosophies. This book will be read and reread as a significant reference to Sivapuranam.
