The word Shiva signifies the auspicious. Lord Shiva roots out sin and terror and is the bestower of earthly happiness, promoter of good, and auspiciousness. Shiva is also called Sankara which means doer of good. Shiva takes one beyond the three bodies (Tripura), gross, subtle, and causal that envelope the Jeeva or the embodied soul. He is hence the Hara or the remover of all evil and the idol of renunciation.
