Shaivism is a branch of Hinduism who worship Shiva as their chief god. Shiva in the Vedas is called Rudra. He is also called Pashupati, the lord of beings.

Shiva is the heart of consciousness, just as Vishnu is the moral law.

Vishnu and Shiva are sometimes visualized as a single divinity named Harihara.
