Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world.

Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
