About the book

‘Shiva to Shankara: Giving Form to the Formless’ We live in the world where people have extreme views. On the other hand, there are scholars who describe Shiva’s Linga as a phallus and see all metaphoric meaning as an embarrassed apologies of the uneducated people. Puritanical Hindus who want to strip the Shiva Linga of all sexual meaning and sanitize Shiva’s lore.

In both cases, a symbol is being reduced to a sign.

In the book, Shiva to Shankara, Devdutt Pattanaik, India’s leading mythologist, seeks to bridge the gap in between both. As he explores the layers of meanings embedded with Shiva’s linga, he discovered that why and how the Goddess transforms Shiva, the hermit, into Shankara, the householder.
