Lord Shiva is the Hindu god of destruction, responsible for destroying the universe and laying the foundation for a new beginning when the time comes. He is a member of the trinity (Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva), involved in the creation, welfare, and destruction of the cosmic universe.

Devotees of Lord Shiva thus worship him in all of his forms in order to please him and obtain moksha after death. He is the ultimate god of all gods and deities, indicating his almightyness.

According to some ancient hindu texts, he’s the one who established the lineage of the Guru–shishya tradition. This tradition had been an inevitable part of the education system in the ancient vedic period.
