About Mrirthyunjaya - Lord Shiva:
In Shaivism tradition, Shiva is the Supreme being who creates, protects and transforms the universe. He is one of the five equivalent deities in Panchayatana puja. The highest form of Shiva is formless, limitless, transcendent and unchanging absolute Brahman, and the primal Atman (soul, self) of the universe.
Lord Shiva is associated with Moksha which is relief from the cycle of birth and death. By Moksha, He is actually taking us out from the illusionary world of Kama, Krodha, Moha, Mada and Lobha and making us realize who we are and what is our true purpose of existence. Thus the power of destruction of has a great purifying power on a universal level. The destruction opens the path for a new creation of the universe, a new opportunity for the beauty and drama of universal illusion to unfold.
