1. Siva.– The name of a god (Cv.xciii. 9, 10). A devaputta named Siva is mentioned in the Saṃyuttanikāya (S.i.56) as visiting the Buddha and speaking several verses on the benefit of consorting only with the good. It is interesting that Buddhaghosa makes no particular comment on the name in this context. In the Samantapāsādikā, however, he refers to the worship of the Sivaliṅga. Sp.iii.626; cf. UdA.351, where mention is made of “Khandadeva Sivādiparicaranaṃ.”
2. Siva.– See Sivi.
4. Siva.– One of the eleven children of Paṇḍuvāsudeva and Kaccāna. Dpv.x.3.
