As the oldest religion still widely practiced today, Hinduism has taken different evolutionary forms where the modern devotee may be impervious to the roots or original intentions of certain philosophical works. Among the metaphysical debate, there has been the ranking of Shiva andVishnu creating different sects, Shaivism and Vaishnavism, where devotees of each have attempted to clarify a hierarchical order. Stories known as Puranas, associated with each deity carry conflicting information placing a particular deity at the forefront possibly due to each sects biases.
Vishnu and Shiva have each taken on conflicting ideals and seem to influence a different aspect of a devotee’s life.
While being the same they symbolise the inner world and the outer world, the spiritual world and the material world they essential.
The conflicting roles of Vishnu and Shiva though in direct opposition are in fact merely duality of the one spiritual spectrum ‘Brahman’, thus Ekam Sat Vipra Bahudha Vadanti.
