    Namaste Mystic Monist,

    The Traditions of Shiva are vast. If I could make a suggestion it would be a good start to be familiar with shivsahsranam, or thousand names of shiva. Each name will have an attribute to His Being. I will post a simple link but if you don't know sanskrit I would suggest compare a few translations.

    Shiva is the Self, if one can understand that then he understands shiva. I would suggest also looking into the shiva purana.

    In early Buddhism nirvana was also known as shiva, or blessed and auspicious.

    If it's possible try to make a friend in real life who knows shiva within the traditions, and they can explain directly more in detail.
