From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Parameshwara or Parameshwar, also transliterated from Sanskrit in other ways, is a Hindu concept literally meaning the Supreme God. The word "param" meaning the highest is added to Ishwara to intensify the title of God.

Conceptualization

Same as Absolute Reality or Absolute Truth (See Para Brahman. The term Parameshwara (Supreme Lord) is used specifically indicate The Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is also the “supreme controller”. This is generally so in order to stress superiority over a contrasting term Maheshvara (Great Lord). And yet it is common that in many Vedic scriptures the term Ishvara is used as a short form for Parameshwara. Brahma Samhita declares Krishna as Parameshwara:

isvara paramah krishna sac-cid-ananda vigrahah anadir adir govindah sarva karana karanam.This is according to ADHVAITHA.

Lord Krishna(Shiva) is the supreme absolute controller, whose form comprises immortality, omniscience, and bliss. He is without beginning, the origin of all, the cause of all causes and the source of the Vedas. (Brahma Samhita 5.1) [1].
