I was wondering. Is this form of Lord Shiva mentioned in any Puranas or Shaiva Agamas?

1 Answer 1


~ Caryāpāda Chapter-1 Makuta Agama, Verse 1-3.:

कैलासवासी भगवान् महादेवो महेश्वरः । महाकैलासनिलयं महाकारुणिकोत्तमम् ।। पञ्चपञ्चमुखं देवं पञ्चाशद्भुजमण्डितम्। पञ्चब्रह्ममयं शान्तं पञ्चकृत्यपरायणम् ।। परं शिवं समालोक्य प्रणम्य विनयान्वितः । पप्रच्छैवं कृपाविष्टो लोकानुग्रहकाङ्क्षया ।।

God Rudra, out of compassion and for the welfare of the world, approaches and most humbly bows unto Paramasiva, the greatest of gods, the Lord of lords, the ruler of Mahā Kailāśa, the supreme among all the merciful beings residing on the mount Mahā Kailasa, endowed with twenty five faces' and fifty hands, of the nature of Pañcabrahma hymn, immutable but ever engrossed in performing five-fold actions and enquires.

I hope this clarifies all your queries. Prd..
