(H1B) śivá [p= 1074,2] [p= 1074,1] [L=217501] m. " The Auspicious one " , N. of the disintegrating or destroying and reproducing deity (who constitutes the third god of the Hindu trimūrti or Triad , the other two being brahmā " the creator " and viṣṇu " the preserver " ; in the veda the only N. of the destroying deity was rudra " the terrible god " , but in later times it became usual to give that god the euphemistic N. śiva " the auspicious " [just as the Furies were called Εὐμενίδες " the gracious ones "] , and to assign him the office of creation and reproduction as well as dissolution ; in fact the preferential worship of śiva as developed in the purāṇas and Epic poems led to his being identified with the Supreme Being by his exclusive worshippers [called śaivas] ; in his character of destroyer he is sometimes called kāla " black " , and is then also identified with " Time " , although his active destroying function is then oftener assigned to his wife under her name kālī , whose formidable character makes her a general object of propitiation by sacrifices ; as presiding over reproduction consequent on destruction śiva's symbol is the liṅga [q.v.] or Phallus , under which form he is worshipped all over India at the present day ; again one of his representations is as ardha-nārī , " half-female " , the other half being male to symbolize the unity of the generative principle [ RTL. 85] ; he has three eyes , one of which is in his forehead , and which are thought to denote his view of the three divisions of time , past , present , and future , while a moon's crescent , above the central eye , marks the measure of time by months , a serpent round his neck the measure by years , and a second necklace of skulls with other serpents about his person , the perpetual revolution of ages , and the successive extinction and generation of the races of mankind: his hair is thickly matted together , and gathered above his forehead into a coil ; on the top of it he bears the Ganges , the rush of which in its descent from heaven he intercepted by his head that the earth might not be crushed by the weight of the falling stream ; his throat is dark-blue from the stain of the deadly poison which would have destroyed the world had it not been swallowed by him on its production at the churning of the ocean by the gods for the nectar of immortality ; he holds a tri-śūla , or three-pronged trident [also called pināka] in his hand to denote , as some think , his combination of the three attributes of Creator , Destroyer , and Regenerator ; he also carries a kind of drum , shaped like an hour-glass , called ḍamaru: his attendants or servants are called pramatha [q.v.] ; they are regarded as demons or supernatural beings of different kinds , and form various hosts or troops called gaṇas ; his wife durgā [otherwise called kālī , pārvatī , umā , gaurī , bhavāṇī &c ] is the chief object of worship with the śāktas and tāntrikas , and in this connection he is fond of dancing [see tāṇḍava] and wine-drinking ; he is also worshipped as a great ascetic and is said to have scorched the god of love (kāma-deva) to ashes by a glance from his central eye , that deity having attempted to inflame him with passion for pārvatī whilst he was engaged in severe penance ; in the exercise of his function of Universal Destroyer he is fabled to have burnt up the Universe and all the gods , including brahmā and viṣṇu , by a similar scorching glance , and to have rubbed the resulting ashes upon his body , whence the use of ashes in his worship , while the use of the rudrā*kṣa berries originated , it is said , from the legend that śiva , on his way to destroy the three cities , called tri-pura , let fall some tears of rage which became converted into these beads: his residence or heaven is kailāsa , one of the loftiest northern peaks of the himā*laya ; he has strictly no incarnations like those of viṣṇu , though vīra-bhadra and the eight bhairavas and khaṇḍobā &c [ RTL. 266] are sometimes regarded as forms of him ; he is especially worshipped at Benares and has even more names than viṣṇu , one thousand and eight being specified in the 69th chapter of the śiva-purāṇa and in the 17th chapter of the anuśāsana-parvan of the mahā-bhārata , some of the most common being mahā-deva , śambhu , śaṃkara , īśa , īśvara , mahe*śvara , hara ; his sons are gaṇe*śa and kārttikeya) A1s3vS3r.

And Rudra


(H2) rudrá [p= 883,1] [L=178517] mfn. (prob.) crying , howling , roaring , dreadful , terrific , terrible , horrible (applied to the aśvins , agni , indra , mitra , varuṇa , and the spáśaḥ) RV. AV. (accord. to others " red , shining , glittering " , fr. a √ rud or rudh connected with rudhira ; others " strong , having or bestowing strength or power " , fr. a √ rud = vṛd , vṛdh ; native authorities give also the following meanings , " driving away evil " ; " running about and roaring " , fr. ru dra = dru2 ; " praiseworthy , to be praised " ; " a praiser , worshipper " = stotṛ Naigh. iii , 16)
(H2B) rudrá [p= 883,2] [p= 883,1] [L=178518] m. " Roarer or Howler " , N. of the god of tempests and father and ruler of the rudras and maruts (in the veda he is closely connected with indra and still more with agni , the god of fire , which , as a destroying agent , rages and crackles like the roaring storm , and also with kāla or Time the all-consumer , with whom he is afterwards identified ; though generally represented as a destroying deity , whose terrible shafts bring death or disease on men and cattle , he has also the epithet śiva , " benevolent " or " auspicious " , and is even supposed to possess healing powers from his chasing away vapours and purifying the atmosphere ; in the later mythology the word śiva , which does not occur as a name in the veda , was employed , first as an euphemistic epithet and then as a real name for rudra , who lost his special connection with storms and developed into a form of the disintegrating and reintegrating principle ; while a new class of beings , described as eleven [or thirty-three] in number , though still called rudras , took the place of the original rudras or maruts: in VP. i , 7, rudra is said to have sprung from brahmā's forehead , and to have afterwards separated himself into a figure half male and half female , the former portion separating again into the 11 rudras , hence these later rudras are sometimes regarded as inferior manifestations of śiva , and most of their names , which are variously given in the different purāṇas , are also names of śiva ; those of the Va1yuP. are ajaikapād , ahir-budhnya , hara , nirṛta , īśvara , bhuvana , aṅgāraka , ardha-ketu , mṛtyu , sarpa , kapālin ; accord. to others the rudras are represented as children of kaśyapa and surabhi or of brahmā and surabhi or of bhūta and su-rūpā ; accord. to VP. i , 8, rudra is one of the 8 forms of śiva ; elsewhere he is reckoned among the dik-pālas as regent of the north-east quarter) RV. &c (cf.
