Shiva (also known as Shiva Nataraja, Mahadev) is a Hindu god who is associated with destruction and transformation. He is depicted as a powerful dancer who performs a powerful dance to destroy the universe during the final days of a world’s life cycle.
He is also associated with creation, because while he destroys things he is also the one who creates new life. So in essence he controls the entire cycle of life and death in the universe.

Shiva is known for being a very intense god who has no mercy or grace when he is angry…but in moments of love and compassion, he can be a very gentle and forgiving god as well.
