All of us who have studied fundamental physics are familiar with the rule of conservation of energy, which states that nothing can be destroyed.

“Nothing is created or dies, but things that already exist mix and then separate again,”

Vaisheshika thinkers of India developed a similar picture of the cosmos as a collection of particles that join, separate, and reassemble over and over again.

Thus, Lord Shiva is incorrectly referred to as the “Destroyer” since he does not destroy anything but rather changes everything; thus, the Cosmic Transformer would be a more accurate title for him rather than the Destroyer.

Shiva is shown in iconography wielding the fire of cosmic disintegration and origination in his right hand (positive) and the hour-glass shaped drum (Amaru) of sound creation in his left hand (negative) (negative).

The pulsations of the drum represent the primordial vibrations that kick-start the process of creating new things. As a result, Shiva, via his Cosmic Dance – Tava – is both the creator and the transformer of the Universe.

It was 13.8 billion years ago that our universe was nothing more than a ball of hot plasma — a combination of electrons, protons, and photons — with no stars or galaxies to speak of. Sound waves shook this newborn universe, triggered by minute fluctuations in the universe’s temperature, known as “quantum fluctuations,” that occurred just moments after the big bang that created our universe.

Shiva is a Sanskrit word that means “prosperity, welfare.” He is the third deity of the Hindu Triad, and he is also known as the god of annihilation or destruction. He is known as the “angry deity” because he embodies darkness and is thought to be enraged.

When it comes to Shiva’s cosmic responsibilities, the phrase “destruction” might be misleading. Lord Shiva is often shown destroying bad entities like evil, ignorance, and death.

In addition, it is the devastation brought about by Lord Shiva that enables beneficial recreation to take place. When making a magnificent work of art, an artist may meltdown (i.e., destroy) ancient bits of metal that have been sitting around for ages.

Shiva, as the deity of destruction, is considered to be a complementary figure to Brahma, the god of creation. Shiva preserves souls until they are ready to be resurrected by Brahma, the creator of the universe. Lord Shiva is one of Hinduism’s most feared and revered deities, owing to his association with devastation. He is also one of the most highly adored deities.

Hinduism, on the other hand, believes that destruction is followed by creation. For this reason, the Hindu god Shiva is also said to have the ability to reproduce and bring back what has been lost. As a restorer, he is symbolized by the linga or phallus, which is a sign of rebirth and renewal.

There are twenty-eight forms of Shiva mentioned in the Linga Purana, and they may be interpreted as Shiva avatars; nonetheless, such a reference is exceptional, and the notion of Shiva avatars is comparatively rare in Shaivism when compared to the much-stressed concept of Vishnu avatars in Vaishnavism.
