The number five is said to be extremely special in the worship of Lord Shiva - right from the five-syllable mantra "Namahshivaya" to the depiction of the five faces or Pancha-vaktra-s, the Pancha Bhoota kshetra-s and many more. This thematic presentation "Namahshivaya" aims to uncover such special aspects of Lord Shiva based on the number five, with references from works of literature and musical compositions.
