    Let's not debate on that, please. I asked a valid question. Your "question" is unclear, lacking details, and now it's even closed a POB. – NVZ May 25 '16 at 10:26

From Mahimna Strotra

महेशान्नापरो देवो महिम्नो नापरा स्तुतिः।
अघोरान्नापरो मन्त्रो नास्ति तत्त्वं गुरोः परम्॥३७॥

There is no god (devaḥ) that is higher (aparaḥ) than Mahesha --an epithet of Siva meaning "great Lord"-- , there is no hymn of praise (stutiḥ) which is higher than (this) Sivamahimnaḥ stotram . There is no Mantra --a sacred word-- which is higher than Aghora --an epithet of Shiva meaning "not terrific"-- (and) there is no principle (tattvam) that is superior to the Guru --in the sense of the fifth "kṛtya" or action of Śiva, which bestows divine Grace upon a limited being-- ||37||

    this post does not answer WHY for the Question. (since its the same person who asked Q, it does not matter I guess, as it is already accepted) – AADHinduism Dec 23 '16 at 2:50
