Soundarya Lahari - Part 329


This concept of ‘being consumed by PraLaya’ needs further clarification. Though we use the word ‘Shiva’ generally, so long as He is the ‘Kameshvara’ or the attributeless ‘shivam’ He cannot be consumed by

But when He is one of the divine triad, as the Rudra in charge of Dissolution, or the Maheshvara in charge of the ‘tirodhAna’ function, or the SadAshiva of the ‘anugraha’ function, he will not be there after the PraLaya, because there is no pancha-kRtyam (the five Cosmic Functions) once the PraLaya is over.
