Siva is the Source of all the Scriptures

Siva is source of all literature (ola leaves, temple carvings, stone edicts, etc)

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Most people try to experience God through other people. Disciples see a guru as God. Wives see their husband as God. Devotees see the Deity in the temple as God. But all the time, behind the eyes of their seeing, is God.
—Gurudeva
