Lord Siva Creates the Universe; Nandinatha reveals Saiva Siddhanta

Lord Siva beats His drum fourteen times, issuing forth fourteen primal sounds to create the universe. High in the Himalayas, Siddha Nandinatha sits with his eight yogic disciples to teach, for the first time in known human history, the revelatory truths of the monistic tradition of Saiva Siddhanta.

The Saiva Siddhanta perspective is that Siva's wonderful universe of form is perfect at every point in time, complete and totally just, and every soul, in all stages of evolution, is an intrinsic part of it, even Siva himself.
