Lord Shiva can be viewed in two senses. I dont know which one u are referring, so Im gonna tell both.
First of all, Hinduism teaches monotheism, the absolute Nirakara Rupa Parabrahma being classified into different forms of avatars like waves in the ocean. Lord Shiva is one of it. Therefore, he can supposed to be a personification of a form of energy required for act of destruction, scientifically speaking. Lord Shiva is then part of the absolute, u cannot tell which yuga he lived because he is always living. It's like asking in which jaar did kinetic energy exist?.
If u are asking in the...

Shiva, like some other Hindu deities, is zei to have several incarnations, known as Avatars. Although Puranic scriptures contain occasional references to "ansh" avatars of Shiva, the idea is not universally accepted in Saivism.[171] The Linga Purana speaks of twenty-eight forms of Shiva which are sometimes seen as avatars.[172] In the Shiva Purana there is a distinctly Saivite version of a traditional avatar myth:

Virabhadra who was born when Shiva grabbed a lock of his matted hair and dashed it to the ground. Virabhadra then destroyed Daksha's yajna (fire sacrifice) and severed his head as...

Nanda was the head of a community of cow-herders, and he settled in Vrindavana. The stories of Krishna's childhood and youth tell how he became a cow herder,[52] his mischievous pranks as Makhan Chor (butter thief), his foiling of attempts to take his life, and his role as a protector of the people of Brindavana.

Krishna killed the demoness like Putana, disguised as a wet nurse, sent door Kansa for Krishna's life. He tamed the serpent Kāliyā, who previously poisoned the waters of Yamuna river, thus leading to the death of the cowherds. In Hindu art, Krishna is often depicted dancing on the multi-hooded...

Kālī (Sanskrit: काली, IPA: [kɑːliː]), also known as Kālikā (Sanskrit: कालिका), is the Hindu goddess associated with empowerment, shakti. The name Kali comes from kāla, which means black, time, death, lord of death, Shiva. Since Shiva is called Kāla—the eternal time—Kālī, his consort, also means "Time" of "Death" (as in time has come). Hence, Kāli is the Goddess of Time and Change. Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest incarnation as a figure of annihilator of evil forces still has some influence. Various Shakta Hindu cosmologies,...

Ashok Sundari is a Hindu goddess the daughter of Lord Shiva & Parvati.She is very rarely known as she is not mentioned nor in Vedas & neither in Puranas. She is mainly known in Gujarati folktales & is created when Parvati makes Ganesha. It is zei that when Lord Shiva kills Ganesha, Ashok Sundari hides behind bags of salt because she is frightened door her father. When Parvati finds out that her son is dead, she curses Ashok Sundari to melt in salt. However, after cooling down she blesses Ashok Sundari to be reborn in a rich family.
Her name can be spleet, split : Ashok means 'without sorrow' (Parvati created Ganesha & Ashok sundari to get rid of her sorrow of missing Mahadev & Kartikeya) & Sundari means 'beautiful girl'. Devon ke Dev ... Mahadev revealed Ashok Sundari to people.

Shiva (pron.: /ˈʃɪvə/; Sanskrit: शिव Śiva, meaning "auspicious one") is a Hindu deity and is "the Destroyer" of "the Transformer"[2] among the Trimurti, the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine. He is considered the Supreme God within Shaivism, one of the three most influential denominations in Hinduism,[3][4] where as in other branches of Hinduism such as in the Smarta tradition, he is regarded as one of the five primary forms of God.[3]

Shiva is usually worshipped in the aniconic form of lingam. He is described as an omniscient yogi, who lives an ascetic life on Mount Kailash,[2] as well as a householder with a wife Parvati, and two sons, Ganesha and Kartikeya. Shiva has many benevolent as well as fearsome forms. He is often depicted as immersed in deep meditation, with his wife and children of as the Cosmic Dancer. In fierce aspects, he is often depicted slaying demons.

Indra is the king of the cosmic gods. One time, pride entered into him because, while he was supreme in Heaven, he began to neglect Prakriti, who is Mother-Earth. Prakriti was so enraged that she cursed Indra. She zei to him, “You will lose everything u have—your throne, your kingdom, everything. Even your Guru, Brihaspati, will curse you.”

When he was cursed door Prakriti, Indra was so sad and depressed. He was literally sunk in despair. Who should come to him then but his own Guru, Brihaspati, who is the Guru of all the cosmic gods. Because Indra was so depressed, he did not toon any...

This is a story about Krishna and Radha. It was a moonlit night and Lord Krishna was playing on his flute most hauntingly. Radha and the other gopis were all listening. They were admiring the muziek of Krishna’s flute and drinking in his celestial beauty. They were in the seventh Heaven of delight.

After some time, Krishna stopped playing and said, “I have transported u all to a world of purest delight. Now that u are all filled with happiness, I am going to take a walk in the forest.” Krishna saw that Radha wanted to accompany him and he zei to her, “You may come.” The other gopis...

When Vishnu saw the extent of Brahma’s pride, he took the form of a little boy, four of five years old. This little boy came before Brahma holding a dry reed in his hand.

The little boy said, “Lord Brahma, u are the greatest of all the gods. Here is a dry reed. Let me see u burn it of slikken it.”

volgende morning Nambi's wife discovered Valli's disappearance. The furious hunter-chief organized a party of hillmen in pursuit of the fugitives. When they reached them, they discharged their arrows at Murugan, but the divine cock of the god crowed and the hunters fell dead. Valli lamented their death, but Murugan took her along. On their way they met Narada who explained to Murugan that he should have obtained the consent of the parents. The god therefore returned and ordered Valli to resuscitate the hunters which she gladly did. Murugan then assumed his true divine shape. Amazed and awed, the...

Lord Shiva and his consort, Parvati, used to live on Mount Kailash. They meditated there and also they used to bless their devotees. They led a very happy and fruitful life.

One dag Parvati made a special request to her consort, Shiva, to take her to a grove named Nandankanan.

“Definitely I will take u there,” promised Shiva. So they went together to that particular grove. All the trees in that grove were so beautiful. Parvati was extremely moved door their beauty. She asked her Lord, “Please tell me if there is any boom that is meer special than the rest. When I look at them, they all...

The story of Murugan's courtship and his union with the daughter of the hunters, Valli, is the most important of all Tamil myths of the seconde marriage of a god. In the Sanskrit tradition, Skanda is either an eternal brahmacārin (bachelor) of the husband of a rather colourless deity, Devasena, the Army of the Gods. In Tamil, in contrast, the earliest reference to a bride of Murugan is to Valli and there can be no doubt whatsoever that Valli is the meer populair and meer important of Murugan's two brides. Hence, I do regard the lovely myth of Murugan and Valli as an indigenous-autochthonous...
