The book is full of pictures and marvelous stories that even a Strong devotee of Shiva like myself, On myself learning new things and being transported to new worlds of wonder and excitement. I don’t think there’s a spare word in the whole book and if you are interested in Shiva I can suggest several other books that aren’t worth half of what this one is worth I have to thank the author, Devdutt Pattanaik, but this incredible plethora of marvels equal to any book of fancy which turns out to be authentic and absolutely on the mark in a manner of showing one has to live life to the fullest.

Seven Secrets of Shiva is a non-fiction work that endeavors to explain Shiva, the Lord of Kailash through the labyrinth of myths, stories and cultural perception. Why is Shiva dressed like an uncouth tramp? Why does he smear ashes from the cemetery, on his body and dress with a tiger skin?

Why did he arm Ravana and Basmasura with boons that finally led to trouble? Who is this God who acts like a hermit devoid of family, commitments and emotion and yet has a huge following of ganas, wives and sons? One will find all the answers for these questions in this book. It is she who teaches esoteric nuances of sex and love to him.

As with any other mythology book, the author has delved deep into both north and south indian fables, folk tales, myths and legends and has presented Shiva to the common man to understand, venerate and learn the primitive wisdom that would help us escape the trapping of the world. Thorough research of all legends, stories and myths related to Shiva.

Felt that the first chapter dragged a bit with a lot esoteric explanations. One person found this helpful. This book is meant for all those people who view Hinduism from western work view. Mr Pattanaik’s style of writing is very simple and keeps the reader glued. This book has answered lot of questions which I had carried since my childhood and has successfully transformed my mental state.

The best take away from this book has been discussion about the topic-Meaning of life! I feel proud of my religion after reading this book but this book is not about Hinduism and its advantages though. Shiv Ji is the centre point of the book and I will definite go for other works of the author. Very well researched and objectively presented. Pattanaik digs into the esoteric and symbolic manifestations and representations of Shiva.


I’m not sure if this is a good “beginners” book – but highly recommend it for the spiritually curious.

I also enjoy that the author pattanik away from the obligatory religious anecdotes for instance, of Shakti mounting Shiva to invigorate him to benefit the universe – compared to the layman account of the same depictions placing Shiva at Shakti’s feet to calm the angry goddess. Cannot wait to read Pattanaik’s other works! As a collection of stories on Shiv, this book does very well. The philosophy is really not that catchy – I never thought it was meant to be.

But Shiv is well beyond all our classifications which he debdutt understands nor cares about.

Hindu thought, I suggest look elsewhere. This is good but fleeting series of introductions to a many tentacled complex web of Hindu thought. Great introduction to Shiva and mythology. All of Devdutt’s books are great reads and very informative. Understand what a lot of idol craftsmen intended to convey through the stone carvings.

Probably the idols were never meant to be worshipped but rather communicate awesome philosophies and concepts that cannot be easily explained. Or rather the idols are “logos” of thoght concepts. This book will really enrich your understanding of indian mythology.

This is a must read along with seven secrets of Vishnu. See all 53 reviews.
