Some brief overview of book

The ultimate goal of a spiritual transformation is enlightenment and with enlightenment comes ananda or tranquil bliss. And with this bliss, there are no urges, no needs, and no desires. This is usually how Shiva is known to exist: in perpetual transcendence.

However, transcendence means there isn't a need for life or matter to exist. Desire is what links man to nature and if this desire is taken away, the world soon enters stasis and all life will cease to exist. This only means that even Shiva is domesticated in some form or the other.

How does this happen? Who makes this happen? In Shiva: The Ultimate Tapasvin, Devdutt Pattanaik analyzes Shiva's significance in Hindu mythology and how He contributes to perpetuating life on earth.
