Parashiva, also known as Sadashiva or Maha Sambhu, is one of the aspects of the Hindu god Shiva. According to the Shaivite tradition, Parashiva is the Absolute which is beyond human comprehension and is beyond all attributes.[citation needed] In Shaivite theology, Parashiva is both the source and the destination of everything in the universe. The term roughly corresponds with the Vaishnavite term "Mahavishnu" and the Smartist term "Nirguna Brahman".[citation needed]
