What is Shaivism?

Gurur Brahmaa Gurur Vishnu Gurur Devo Maheshvarah
Guruh Saakshaat Para Brahma Tasmai Shri Gurave Namah
(Guru is Brahma, Guru is Vishnu, Guru is Maheswara. Consider Guru as your everything. All are embodiments of Divinity. In fact, all that you see is nothing but the Divine Cosmic Form)

Since ages, Hindus have visualised God in various manifestations of the divine principle. Among these manifestations, the Hindu pantheon of Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma has always been held in highest regard as the holiest gods of all - ones who truly rule the world.
For Shaivites like us Lord Shiva is the Supreme being who is the embodiment of Hindu trinity and everything before and after! Considered to be one of the oldest sects of Hinduism, Shaivism can be traced back to the Indus Valley Civilization (5000 BC), with evidence of the worship of Lord Shiva having been found in ancient archaeological sites of Harappa and Mohenjo Daro. In fact, some evidence dates Shaivism to an even older tradition!
