Object literature: Shiva is one of the three gods of Trimurti alongside Brahma and Vishnu. He represents the destroyer but also the regenerator, the liberator, and the beneficial. He is the One without whom nothing can be reborn, the One who allows the death-birth cycle, and the One who allows the return to the unmanifest.
