Stories abound of celestial nymphs, asparas, sent by Indra to tempt sages. The story of Vishwamitra and Menaka is from the Ramayana.

On the lips of Saivites throughout the world resounds the proclamation "God Siva is Immanent Love and Transcendent Reality." It is a statement of fact, a summation of truth.
