Project Idea: Shiva Mahadeva

Although both epics are focused on Vishnu and his avatars, you will see Shiva in both the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, and there are also many great Shiva legends beyond the epics.

Research Tip: Start with the Wikipedia article about Shiva and Shaivism (the worship of Shiva); those articles will lead you to many related articles. You will find comic books on Reserve in Bizzell: Tales of ShivaSati and Shiva: Perfection Rewarded, Shiva Parvati: A Story of Divine Love, and Elephanta: The Island of Shiva. You might also enjoy Devdutt Pattanaik's Shiva videos: Part 1 and Part 2, and Sister Nivedita's books (free online) feature many Shiva stories.
