Lord Siva has five faces known as "sadyOjata" etc. He is devoid of six enemies called desire, anger etc. He revels in the hearts of devotees. He is bestower of education. He dispels ignorance caused
by worldly illusions . He is splendorous at Nava Ratnagiri
which resembles "Sri Chakra" the symbol of Supreme Knowledge. Ganga is gracing on his head. His glory is described in prose and poetry. He is the essence of the Vedas. His "Abhisheka" ritual is performed with perenial holy Kaveri water. Guru Guha is his dear child. He is the destroyer of love god Manmadha.
