Shiva under the feet of Maa Kali
Lord Shiva was also smiling under Maa Kali’s feet. Lord Shiva is a symbol of anger and fierceness, but he is in the most benevolent form. Because? Let’s tell the secret behind it. One time, the black mother was very angry. No god, demon and human could stop them. Then everyone collectively remembered Lord Shiva to stop Mother Kali. At that time, wherever the superpowers intervened, there was bound to be destruction. Then Lord Shiva realized that he could not stop the super power. Following this, Lord Shiva chose an emotional path and reached out to stop them.
Bholenath lay in the path of mother Kali. When mother Kali got there, she did not realize that Lord Shiva was lying there and she put her foot on Shiva’s chest. Until now, wherever the superpower has trodden, it was all over. But there was an exception here. As soon as Mother Kali saw that Lord Shiva had her foot on her chest, her anger subsided and she began to repent.
Maa Parvati had taken the exam
Do you know that Lord Shiva had taken the test of Maa Parvati? It is said that before marrying Parvati Maa, Lord Shiva thought of taking the test from him. Bholenath took the form of a Brahmin and reached Parvati. He asked Parvati’s mother why she wanted to marry a beggar like Lord Shiva as she has nothing. Hearing this, Parvati’s mother got angry. She said that she will not marry anyone but Shiva. Lord Shiva was pleased with her response. He came out in his true form and agreed to marry Parvati.
Why does Shiva cremate the whole body?
Lord Shiva is consumed throughout the body. Shiva devotees apply Bhasma tilak on the forehead. A very interesting story is found in this regard in Shiva Purana. There was a saint who had become powerful by doing a lot of penance. He used to eat only fruits and green leaves, hence his name was Pranda. Through his penance, that monk had established control over all the fauna of the forest. Once, he was cutting wood to repair his hut, then he cut his finger.
The monk saw that instead of bleeding from the finger, the juice of the plant came out. The monk felt that he had become so pious that his body was filled with plant juice instead of blood. He was pleased by that, and he was full of pride. Now the monk began to consider himself the holiest person in the world. When Lord Shiva saw this, he assumed the form of an old man and came there. Lord Shiva, disguised as an old man, asked the monk why he was so happy. The monk agreed with Shiv Ji, knowing the whole matter, he asked that it is only the juice of plants and fruits, but when trees and plants are burned, they also turn to ash. In the end, only the ashes remain.
Taking the form of an old man, Shiva immediately cut off his finger, revealing ashes. The monk realized that God himself was standing in front of him. The monk apologized for his ignorance. It is said that since then Lord Shiva began to cremate his body so that his devotees will always remember this fact. Don’t brag about physical beauty, but remember the ultimate truth.
Lord Shiva gave him Sudarshan Chakra
The Sudarshan Chakra is always graceful in the hands of Lord Vishnu. According to the Puranas, it was Lord Shiva who gave this Sudarshan Chakra to Lord Vishnu. Once Lord Vishnu was worshiping Shiva. Lord Vishnu had put thousands of lotuses to please Bholenath. Lord Shiva wanted to see how is the preparation in devotion to Lord Vishnu. So he took a lotus. Lord Vishnu, taking Sahasranama, was offering a lotus flower on the Shivling every time. When Vishnu was taking the 1000th name, he discovered that there were no flowers left to offer on the Shivling. Then Lord Vishnu took the eye out of it and offered it to Shiva. Lord Vishnu has been called Kamalnayan, so instead of a lotus flower, he offered his eye.
amarnath cave story,
Amarnath cave is very important for devotees of Lord Shiva. It is said that when Mother Parvati asked Lord Shiva to tell her the secret of her immortality, she went to a cave. On her way to the cave, she did many things. That is why the entire path to go to the cave is considered miraculous. To tell the secrets of Amarkatha, God left his son and his vehicle in uninhabited places. All these places became sanctuaries. According to mythology, Lord Shiva came to the cave through Pahalgam.
