Rudra: Lord Pasupathi and Parameshwara

In Vedic mythology, Rudra is a prominent deity associated with storm, wind, and hunting. However, it is important to note that the parentage of Rudra can vary in different Vedic texts and traditions.

In some hymns of the Rigveda, Rudra is described as the son of Prajapati (the lord of creatures) or as an aspect of Agni (the god of fire). In other passages, Rudra is mentioned as the offspring of Aditi (the goddess of infinity) and Daksha (a Prajapati).

Furthermore, Rudra is considered one of the forms or aspects of Lord Shiva in later Hindu traditions. In these traditions, Shiva is regarded as the supreme deity and the father of various gods and goddesses.The complex nature of Rudra’s parentage reflects the diverse interpretations and beliefs across different Vedic texts and later Sanathana Dharma.
