Let Love be our only God.

The purpose of shiva is to destroy the universe in order to re-create it. Is true? Naturally not. Shiva and the universe are one and the same. But that's not all. This one and the same it is self. Self is deathless, eternal and everlasting appearing as manifoldness so to escape aloneness. Hence the final truth. Truth is one's purpose is love. All this for companionship, for friendship, for love.
