🔑Key Points

✔The religion and belief system of the Indus Valley people have received considerable attention, especially from the view of identifying precursors to deities and religious practices of Indian religions that later developed in the area.

✔Due to the lack of evidence, which is open to varying interpretations, and the fact that the Indus script remains undeciphered, the conclusions are partly confusing and largely based on a retrospective view from a modern Hindu perspective.

✔In 1931 John Marshall, identified the following many prominent features of the Indus religion. One of them was a Great Male God and a Mother Goddess.

✔One Indus Valley seal shows a seated figure with a horned headdress, possibly tricephalic and possibly ithyphallic, surrounded by animals.

✔Marshall identified the figure as an early form of the Hindu god Shiva (or Rudra), who is associated with asceticism, yoga, and linga; regarded as a lord of animals; and often depicted as having three eyes.

✔The seal has hence come to be known as the Pashupati Seal, after Pashupati (lord of all animals), an epithet of Shiva.
