Shiva means" auspicious." Worship of Shiva is as a combination of Rudra, the matted-haired ascetic with the personification of Consciousness. As All Consciousne he is called Sada Shiva and has an alternate story (purana) of Creation. As Shiva the Destroyer, he is depicted as an androgynous being in a circle of flames. As Creation is a spiral energy, the destruction is actually a transmutation. The Yoni Lingham used to worshiip Shiva is a joining of the masculine and feminine genitals to symbolize Unity. Without inner unity, we are not fully conscious.
