The Purpose of Shiva is verily Love.

Of course there is only Shiva; it is just that it isn't really good to be alone which is the why of Life, why there is Man and Woman. Man and Woman are verily Shiva. All Life is verily Shiva. And the purpose of Shiva; the purpose of Shiva is verily Love. Ecstatic Love is two partners realizing the above; truth is One exists as Two for Love.
