Shiv Maha Purana is one of the most hallowed content of Hinduism and identifies with a Hindu Tradition that loves Lord Shiva and is known as Shaivism.
It is one of the Hinduism's 18 incredible Puranas, and it is based on Lord Shiva and his associate Goddess Parvati, and it portrays the account of Lord Shiva.
Initially, Shiv Purana comprised of 12 Sanhitas (segments) and 1,00,000 Slokas (refrains). In any case, they were recreated and abridged by Ved Vyas so that at present, there are 24,000 refrains which are remembered for Six Sanhitas (segments). The name of the six segments in Shiv Purana are Janma Sanhita, Vidyeshvara Sanhita, Kailash Sanhita, Sanatkumar Sanhita, Vayaviya Sanhita and Dharma Sanhita. Every one of these Sanhitas is partitioned into sections (Adhyay) which contains an aggregate of 24,000 slokas (refrains).

It is believed that if a person worships Lord Shiva as prescribed in the Shiv Maha Puran or even if he recites or gets a recitation of Shiv Maha Puran done on his behalf, then he is blessed by Lord Shiva thereby attaining Moksha after leading a most satisfying life in this world.
