Legend of great Shiva devotee


Legend of great Shiva devotee

 In the jungles of the south there was a clan named Sangrila in which Bhil caste hunters lived. Sardar of this clan was a Bhil named Nag who according to his name was ferocious and powerful. In experts of archery,  Nag used to put venom on his arrows.
It did not take him long to kill his enemy. Nag's wife's name was Tatta. Tatta was also a big frightfully woman with a garland of lion teeth around her neck. Both spouses were considered dangerous among the tribes of the surrounding forests.
After a long wait, Tatta gave birth to a son named Tishna. The newborn was very weighing at birth. Therefore his name was appropriate. Tishna is called heavy in the language of there.
 Tishna continued to be nurtured and by the age of sixteen he became the master of the mountain body. He was also several steps ahead of his father in wielding weapons. Many times Tishna hunted wild boar unarmed. His physical strength was limitless.
When Nag would see his son swinging like a elephant , then his chest would be stretched with pride. Nag had grown old. He made Tishna the head of the clan. According to the rules, Tishna going out for hunting before becoming the chief of clan. The corridors of wild animals passing through Tishna would fall.


His two servants Nad and Kad picked up  and collected them at one place. When Tishna gathered a lot of meat , he got hungry. Meat was enough to satisfy hunger but there was no water. Then both his followers came there.
Now feeling hungry. The direction also seems to be confused. Can I have water somewhere? Let the hunger calm down. Tishna said. Yes, he is looking at the huge shawl tree, after that the river Suvarna flows behind the hill. Its water is also very cold. Nad said.
That hill is also very beautiful. There is a temple on it which has a statue of Lord Jata Jutdhari. You can worship them. Kad also said.
What is this god? Tishna asked. Kad was moving towards old age. Had traveled to the remote jungles for hunting and lived in the company of many saints. He had some knowledge.
 The person who has created this plant and animal is a god. Kad told according to his knowledge-ability: Where does this wind come from? Where does water come from? All is God's grace. Tishna's teenage mind became keen on that new information. He also asks Kad more about God.
 Where does this god live? I would like to meet such a person.
 He is involved in every particle. These flowers and leaves are also there, but to meet him one has to do devotion. We have to worship.
 I will Tishna said in a firm voice: I can do anything to meet a person who gives so much without taking anything.
 Then you walk in the temple and worship. The seed of Prabhu Milan sprouted in the mind of Tishna. In his heart a natural love for the gratitude of God had grown. All three started climbing the hill. As Tikha was climbing the hill, his hunger and thirst were fading.
 There was an indescribable curiosity in the inner heart. They reached the summit of the hill and reached in front of the temple. On seeing the idol of Mahadev, Tishna forgot his consciousness and after being overwhelmed, tied the idol in his embrace and started crying.
 O who gives water and life to the world! He said excitedly: Despite being so great, you live alone in this forest! Some flowers were placed on the head of the idol.
Tishna picked them up and threw them. Whose wickedness is this. Who placed this flower on my master's head?
 I often see a person. Nada said - He comes early in the morning and pours cold water on his head and leaves flowers and leaves. At the same time something keeps mumbling.
He is definitely an Aghori who is engaged in selfishness by making my lord a medium . Tishna said: He would not have even served them food. I will make them eat fresh meat every day.
He started taking food but he did not feel like going from the temple. He would return again and cling to the idol. God ! The mind does not want to leave, but you feel hungry so I go.
Tishna left from there and came down from the hill. The pulse was stunned while Kad was understanding the state of Tishna.
We were destroyed. Nada said: Swami went mad. Everything has happened because of you. Now the elder masters will roast and eat you. Kad did not say anything. What would he explain that intelligence?
 When Tishna returned, he had meat in both his hands. As soon as he came, roast the meat and put it on several leaves, then tasted the meat of each leaf to see if it remained raw. After that, he was satisfied and dedicated himself to God.
This is absolutely crazy. Such fragrant flesh is offering to the stone. It does not take care of our hunger. Nada spoke unhappily.
Tishna was sitting in front of the idol urging food. Owner ! It was evening. Now come home Will be waiting He spoke.
 I can't go The night is the time for the jungle creatures to roam. I cannot leave God alone. you go .
Kad now know his death Nada said with anger: Swami started talking like this because of you. I will get you punished by telling the elder master. I go now You stop here with this maniac.
 The nad descended from the hill. Kad also began to think that when Nirbuddhi Naad tells Nag, he will give him death without even thinking about it. Therefore, it was best to escape from there.
 Tishna remained alone in the temple. At night, he took a bow and arrow at the temple gate and started protecting God.
He kept watch all night. His love was going towards infinity. At dawn, Tishna came down the hill to get fresh meat for his God. Moments after he left, the priest who used to worship in the temple daily came.
He was shocked to see meat in the temple. Oh God ! Who did this corruption A wild hunter desecrated the temple. The priest cursed the hunter as soon as he cleaned the temple and himself took a bath in the river.
 After that, he praised his great mantras and went back to his home. Tishna returned. He collected and roasted the flesh of many animals and brought honey in it. He became angry after seeing the same flowers and leaves in the temple.
 He brought water in the mouth for the God to reach. For this reason could not speak. He removed flowers and leaves from his feet, then poured mouth water on the idol. God ! In my absence, that evil Aghori came. Someday I will punish him.
Take a meal Today I have also squeezed honey in fresh meat . Tishna said. In this way, for five days, Tishna used to spend day and night in his god's food as a protector. He himself was not able to eat and drink.


 Tishna's parents went out to search him elsewhere because when he came to the temple there was no one there. Then Nad said that the Kad must have seduced him and taken him somewhere.
On the other hand, the priest would see such a situation in the temple every day and mourn the corruption. Worshiping the temple cleaned and returned.
 It was God's leela that the priest and Tishna had never encountered. Perhaps the priest would have been hurt by the fiery instinct of Tishna. .
 When the priest started abusing Tishna on that corruption, Devadhidev Mahadev appeared to him in a dream night.
 Oh my devotee! You do not know whom you are abusing. He is my ultimate devotee. He tries to please me as per his ability.
There is no desire anywhere in his love. I love that very much. You do find his worship bad method , but not me.
Meat is his food which he surrendered to me after knowing everything. When he urges me for food in his language, I find his request even better than your chanting and Vedantras. If you want to see his devotion, then look somewhere tomorrow.
The priest jolted awake. There was nothing but God himself ordered, so he hid near the temple in the morning and started watching the acts of Tishna.
At that time Tishna went to get food for God. As he was returning, he stumbled and fell on the way to the earth.
It is a bad omen. Has anything happened to my God? Tishna thought and started running up the hill. The priest was stunned to see the giant figure. When Tishna reached the temple, he saw blood dripping from the left eye of the idol. Food was left out of his hand.
Hi, what happened to my God? Which sinner has injured my master? Tishna sat and wept: If I find that evil one, I will kill him. Tishna wiped the blood from the eyes of God but the blood flow continued continuously.
 Alas what do i do? What to cure, he started crying out loud: You must have been suffering a lot. First I find the evil one who has done this evil act.
 Tishna came out of the temple. The priest shivered at him. If he is seen somewhere, he will not be left alive. Hey Bholenath Protect But was Sarveshwar ignorant of the nature of Tishna?
 It was his leela that clearly visible priest was not visible to Tishna. When no one saw him, he sat back near the idol.
God ! I bring herbs. I do not know which herb will benefit you but go. I just return
Tishna came down from the hill and when he returned, there was a big bundle of jangali herbs on his head. On coming to the temple, he squeezed every single god into the eyes of the god but the bleeding did not stop.
What should I do now? Tishna was distracted. Then he remembered that the hunters used human flesh on the wound and the wound healed. I will try this also. The left eye of God is destroyed, so I keep my left eye on the wound, it may be possible.
 With a pointed arrow, the devotee took out his left eye. Blood flowed out of his own eye but there was no worry. Placed the eye on the palm and placed it on the eye of God. Immediately the Lord's eye stopped bleeding.
Tishna killed Kilkari happily. Started dancing My God became good. But what? Now the right eye of God started bleeding. Tishna was stunned. Don't worry lord! I have received treatment. I still do treatment.
 Tishna again raised the arrow and was anxious to take out the right eye when only then Devadhidev, who appeared from the idol, appeared and grabbed Tishna's hand.
 Even in Devlok, praise was started due to such devotion of Tishna! Your love and renunciation is of a higher quality than the practice of great ascetics.


 Selfless love has made me my slave. You have no desire even in your heart. Therefore, I give you the gift of all divine knowledge. You will get the answer of all the questions in your heart towards me. Kailashpati said with exasperation.
Thishna became enlightened at that moment. His divine enlightenment was looking at reality like a movie. He drowned in emotion and bowed down at his feet.
 The hidden priest became a witness to that incredible scene and he gratified his life by simultaneously interviewing such a devotee Vatsal God and great devotee.

SHIV - GURU



SHIV - GURU 

In the Sanatan Dharma, there has been a tradition of honoring the Gurus from the beginning. Many such gurus are found in our religious texts, who have given new heights to the Guru-Shishya tradition. Guru means one who leads from darkness to light, that is, the Guru guides the disciple properly for success in life.

Lord Shiva is beginning and infinite, that is, no one knows about their origin and neither knows the end. That is, Shiva is the Supreme Father. Lord Shiva has also imparted the ultimate knowledge to his disciples by becoming a guru. If it is said that Lord Shiva is the first Guru of the universe, then there will be no exaggeration.


Shiva gave weapons education to Parashurama, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Parshuram made the earth devoid of Kshatriya many times only from the parshu (furs) given by Shiva. According to the Brahmavaivarta Purana, Lord Shiva is also the Guru of Jartaru (Mansa), the sister of Nagas.
Shiva taught the mrit sanjivani vidya to Shukracharya, the guru of the demons. Once a fierce battle took place between the gods and the demons. As much as the gods slaughtered the demons, Shukracharya would revive them with mruit Sanjivani lore. Seeing this, Lord Shiva swallowed Shukracharya and threw him out again after the war ended. Goddess Parvati considered Shukracharya as her son only after being regenerated by Shiva.

Disciples of Shiva:

Shiva is the Guru of the world. According to the recognition, he first gave his knowledge to the sapt rishis. Sapt Rishis took knowledge from Shiva and spread it in different directions and spread Shaivism, yoga and knowledge in every corner of the world. These seven sages did not leave any person who was taught the knowledge of Shiva karma, tradition etc. Today it get will be seen in all religions. Parashurama and Ravana were also disciples of Shiva. It was Shiva who started the Guru and Shishya tradition, due to which even today, the same tradition is being continued in all the saints like Nath, Shaiva, Shakta etc. Adi Guru Shankaracharya and Guru Gorakhnath carried this tradition further.

Sapta Rishi is the original disciple of Shiva:

Lord Shiva is the first yogi and he has the deepest understanding of human nature. He selected 7 sages to expand their knowledge and gave them knowledge of different aspects of yoga, which became the 7 basic aspects of yoga. Over time, hundreds of branches emerged in 7 points. Later, seeing the complexity in yoga, Patanjali assimilated the entire Yoga Shastra in just 200 sutras in 300 BC. The 8th stage of yoga is moksha. 7 th stage are there to reach that moksha .
"Ignorance" is the root cause of all the miseries of the world. Those who do not know the secret of life or creation, who do not know the divine, do not know themselves, who have never experienced it, even if they do  receive the innumerable food of the world - cannot be free from misery, they cannot be get introduced to real peace or bliss.
Avidya means the creature that takes shelter of ignorance, suffers the sorrow and gets to blindness.
Therefore, to take life in the right direction, it is necessary to light a lamp of enlightenment, in light of this you can achieve your only real goal. All the sorrows can get rid of toxins and get nectar.
But now you  an extinguished lamp, so you have to take shelter of fire to ignite. This fire is the true master and scripture.


With full devotion and faith, we need to be refuge of a resplendent Prakashpunj true Guru and Shastras, so that this extinguished lamp of our heart can be ignited by his unrivaled spiritual energy. Then there is no worry, no sorrow. God himself shows the path by holding hands on the steps, helping us. Whether it is alive or inanimate, whatever exists, it belongs to him. He drives the earth, fills the pools, makes satisfying the thirsty, transmits the nectar in life. Everything belongs to him, he is walking by it, so it is his. This creation is such a film that never ends, because it never starts… It is always going on and will always go on. Because the superhero of this film is infinite. So everything of the infinite will be infinite .... The name is also infinite, religion is also infinite, compassion is also infinite, affection is also infinite, forgiveness is also infinite, form is also infinite, eyes also, foot also, hand also.... everything is infinite. It is simple-accessible-easy because that is what is always available everywhere. And our only destination is the same… the same.

Come, make Shiva own Guru.

It is very small to say the word Guru, but for every human being, a master of great work is one who can give true knowledge, the soul is the form of truth, the doer is the only true and immortal soul in this world, soul is the body's honor. The status of fame is generated by all these qualities, all will be destroyed as soon as the body is released, understanding to know the soul is the best knowledge, and the world guru, etc., the master of this entire universe, is the only ever-present And that is why he is also called Vishwanath Vishveshwar. He is the Guru of everyone. He is also the Guru among the Gurus; The Mahaguru is the Adiguru. He was gurus and will remain gurus tomorrow, they have not known how many gurus have been created and destroyed. Shiva element is the basic essence of the soul. Land self as divine as the Hail Father Hail God.
If the Guru is severed, the Guru means Gu means the meaning of darkness, Ru means is the meaning of the light, or the form of light, that is the full meaning of the Guru, that leads us from darkness to light. Guru is a Brahmin, there is no one better than the soul for everyone, the soul is a symbol of true love, kindness and peace in pure form. The symbol of the reer is Maya changes, not the soul, if the soul is the best master for every soul, then the supreme master is the only one in the universe, only Shiva is not greater than the whole universe. Guru is Vishwa Guru, that is why he is called Vishwanath Vishveshwar.

Need of Guru in life: -

 A spiritual Guru is needed in every human life. The job of a guru is to get a connection with the divine. Whatever we do in life- worshiping, doing charity, fasting fast, studying or trying for our livelihood, it does not give complete success unless there is a spiritual master in life, because whatever we They do the work of sending it to God.
It is the work of the Guru to turn our mind towards the divine who is running towards worldly activities. Guru has been called a doctor of mind. Just as a skilled doctor makes us healthy by eliminating physical diseases, similarly a qualified teacher makes our mind healthy by removing our mental illnesses. These mental illnesses are stress, frustration, depression, despair etc. Today these diseases are spreading rapidly in the society. The basic reason for this is that there is no spiritual teacher in our life. Even if they are not qualified. Today, humans have started thinking of themselves as all-powerful. As a result, we are getting the means of material happiness, but instead of giving us rest, they are restless. Laughter - happiness, peace, all these are getting away from us, we have to go to the Laughing Club to laugh. All the temporal and supernatural pleasures of human life depend on Guru-Daya.

Why is Shiva the Guru?

 Making a guru is necessary in life, but why should Shiva be made a guru? There are many body-holding gurus on the earth. It is natural to arise in this question. It has been said that a Guru can be the one who has the qualities to become a Guru. Different scriptures describe different qualities for a guru. It has been said that in which Brahmani, Vaishnavi and Rudrani - these are the three powers, he can hold the post of Guru. These three powers are found in Maheshwar Shiva. It has been said in the Upanishads that Guru can hold the post only which protects our knowledge, destroys sorrows, brings happiness in life, gives us prosperity and in whose refuge all our abilities are developed. According to the Upanishads, these five qualities have been revealed according to the Upanishads - knowledge-protection, sorrow-decay, happiness, prosperity and all-enrichment. Maheshwar Shiva bears all these qualities. In this way, all the qualities mentioned by Guru are Shivguru's source. Shiva is called Jagatguru. Guru Panth has started with Shiva only. He has also been called Adiguru in the texts, has also been called Guru of Gurus, and also called the Tribhuvan Guru.

Can't humans be gurus?

 Of course it can happen. Even, every human is a guru and a disciple. To make Shiva your guru is not to ignore the rest of the gurus. Conversely, making Jagadguru his master becomes every gravest master of the world, whether it is gross, subtle, or microcosm.
But to make a human being a master, eligibility is required even before. For example, if you want to study in a medical college, then you should have already passed 10 + 2, from biology and if you want to study in engineering college, from mathematics. Along with Physics, Chemistry, English etc.
This is the reason that, of all the bodily beings who became famous Sadhguru, only a few disciples became famous, only 1 in most cases.
 Such as, 1 Kabirdas of Ramananda Swami or Vivekananda of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. Because the pre-qualification of disciples is very rare. When it comes to a spiritual teacher, it is rare to find a guru and it is very rare to find a qualified disciple.
 Physical gurus can give material knowledge, but for spiritual knowledge, only spiritual master will have to do. In the case of spirituality, the external guru also has to be the inner guru, that is, the external guru also has to enter the inner being of the disciple with his yoga force.
 That is why it is said that the Guru descends on the bottom of the disciple and by scouring the consciousness of the disciple, he reveals the best side of his personality.
To make Shiva own Guru , there is no need for any prior eligibility . Because Shiva-Guru is present on every floor. They are also at the top and at the bottom. He is also the first and the last. They are inside as well as outside.
 That is why Shiva has been called Jagadguru or Guru of the masses.
The second reason is that man has become so demoralized that human has become a demon. Man has fallen below the demon. Ravana also kidnapped Sita and kept her in Ashoka Vatika. He asked for their consent for marriage. Today rapes are taking place publicly.
For own happiness brother, brother, son, father, husband and wife do not miss killing. Love, which is the basic quality of human, (the basic quality - that identifies that object, such as the basic property of fire - heat, the basic quality of ice is frosting). Today the environment has changed. In today's environment, it is necessary that man should again go to that Jagatguru. Today, human beings are no longer the control of worldly gurus.
It is said that Shiva created the universe. Gave Brahma the right to creation, Vishnu to preserve and Shankar to the destruction and placed the task of imparting knowledge.
A description of 112 disciples of Shiva is found in the Shiva Purana. Such as Rama's Guru Vashistha, Krishna's Guru Upamanyu, Gods 'Guru Vrihaspati, Demons' Guru Shukracharya, Gorakhnath's Guru Matsyendra Nath, Muni Agastya, all of whom were disciples of Shiva who attained unrivaled fame. These Shiva's disciples started the work of Guru with the energy of Shiva. Then from generation to generation i.e. hereditary guru work started going on. But the power that started from Shiva to Guru's duty has almost ended. Today there is a shortage of qualified gurus. Even if there are qualified gurus, then human life has become so busy that it is difficult for a human to find a qualified master in this time of runaway.


The third thing that a Guru needs is from the age when the child understands. Because Guru's job is to develop life and childhood is the right age for development. The Guru reveals the best side of his disciple's personality. People think that when they are free from all the work, then they will choose a guru. What a great fool act. When we have come into the world, it is our right to enjoy worldly pleasures. Cosmic pleasures are attained only by the mercy of the Guru. Otherwise we do not enjoy material happiness due to lack of understanding and knowledge, that is what we begin to enjoy. As a bhogi, to enjoy happiness and to become self-absorbed are two separate conditions.
It has been said that Guru's kindness is the secret of cosmic and supernatural climax. This should always be kept in mind to awaken your disciple. Therefore, there is a need of a guru from childhood All psychiatrists come only in childhood. Today children are stressed. Now, think where you will find another teacher suitable for children at this age from Shiva. Where will children find gurus who have many restrictions with them?
Earthly gurus feel bond because they are human beings, they cannot change our mind. There is a limit to the power and strength of the body gurus. So they say do not do such a thing, do not eat such a thing, which is impossible in today's environment. Today, wrong eating, behavior has become a part of our daily routine. Therefore, it is not possible for today's people to leave them and make a gurus. This is also the reason people are turning away from spirituality. But the Jagatguru does not put any restrictions. Any person who eats and drinks, can make them Guru, only then the name Jagatguru has meaning. They bring the creature into Shiva spirit only by their mercy. With his kindness the mind starts changing, the evils start to go away. He can make the mind healthy and disease-free which has made the mind. Just as a TV can fix what a mechanic does, a refrigerator can fix what a mechanic does. It is also the reason that motivates us to make Shiva a guru.

Shiva was a guru even before, he still remains tomorrow.

The whole universe is inside Lord Shiva.
 We always need the right guidance to live life and do karma. No matter how good we may be by nature, we all have a limit within which we can think good and bad. We do not deserve that we can always guide ourselves in the right direction. We always need a pioneer who always takes us in the right direction. And only a Guru can do this work. In childhood, parents are gurus, then primary teachers, then high schools, etc. They all guided us in their own way, but they left us one by one or they would be left free. We need a guru who will never leave us, who always has been and always will be. A Guru is one who makes a disciple like himself by teaching and imparting knowledge, and all these only one Guru can give us are Lord Guru Shiva.
In order to read science, we often used to consider an unknown number as something. Then he used to prove his value. In the same way, let us consider Lord Shiva as our Guru and then see if you are getting education or not? You will get education only through emotion. Both knowledge and understanding will come in you. By the way, I have been telling peoples about Shivguru since student life . Scientists have proved that a power (soul) emanates from the body after death. We all have a soul. The whole soul is part of a divine being. Someone named that god, Mahadev, someone GOD, someone Allah, and someone gave him the name Akalatkhat. Shivaguru can be associated with with emotion. Anyway, emotion is needed to connect with anyone.
You will not be connected to any other by staying in a house, unless you have the feeling of that relationship. By the way, science has reached only a few planets of the Sun. You will never be able to find such innumerable planets. Comparison of micro science with the creator of the universe, Shivguru, is meaningless.
By the way, if you want to understand spirituality, then you have to go to the spiritual master. I am a student myself. I cannot give you much information about spirituality. Apart from Jagatguru Shiva, no one can give complete information about spirituality. Where science ends, A, B, C, D of spirituality starts from then on. That's all i would like to say.

Shiva is the resultant guru.

 Shiva not only takes responsibility of his deeds after becoming someone's guru, but it is also the responsibility of Shiva Guru to take care of the happiness and grief of his disciple, who he performs well. He can never see his disciple disappointed or sad because his The disciple is their responsibility. It is said that what is written in luck is the same. It is right here, but only as long as Mahadev is only God. As God he is bound in his own rules that what he wrote ((which is the result of our previous deeds)), he will not change it but this does not apply in Guru Shiva because Guru would have mercy. Are Daya means to give someone what they do not even deserve or not to be luck . I mean to say that suppose my destiny is written in rain, then Mahadev will not stop the rain because rain is my luck, he cannot change it, but Guru Shiva will definitely give me an umbrella to avoid that rain Will help to survive and I will not get wet even when it rains, in this way Mahadev followed his rule, not stopping the rain and also took responsibility for his disciple Giving umbrella.
As Mahadev Guru, we are taught to do deeds while experiencing the joys of life - they do not say that do penance in the jungle or on the mountain. Life is like a bumpy road; It is compulsory to walk, but we can choose to ride with our own mind whether to go by bullock-cart or by car. It is obvious that on this bumpy-bumpy road, if we go by bullock-cart then you will get hit, get hurt. If you go by car on gay, then you will go comfortably no matter how bumpy or uneven the road is. Living life without making Shiva a guru is like riding a bullock cart on this path and living life by making Shiva a guru is like a car ride on this path. We will cross the road in both ways, but by car we will be comfortable. We will live life comfortably by making him a guru. The same thing happened that the bumpy-rough road is in our destiny, it cannot change, but to make Shiva a guru to walk on it is by car It is like taking, which does not let us feel despite the difficulties of life.

Way to make shiv ji a guru

Naturally, we see Shiva as God only. To make him a Guru , we have to realize. Like a summary, three (3) sutras can say:

First - to say to Shivji, O Shiva, you are my Guru and I am your disciple.
 Please pity me.

 Secondly - to discuss Shiv Guru, that is, to tell people about his Guru form.

 Third - Do "Namah Shivaya" anytime throughout the day.

Other eleven forms of Rudra according to Shaivagam



Other eleven forms of Rudra according to Shaivagam


 Shambhu-

 Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh, Dev, demon, ghost , etc. were born from Lord Shambhu, many names are from them. Lord Rudra is the creator,  preserver and destroyer of this world.

Pinaki- 

The name of the second Rudra in Shaivagam is Pinaki. Situated on the forgiveness chariot, coordinated by the Brahma Sutra, is Lord Pinaki holding the four Vedas. Shri Brahma ji says to Narada ji - When we and Lord Vishnu bowed to Lord Rudra with a wordy body, then we were got by the omkar chanting mantra. Subsequently, this great word utanttvmasi was appeared in the four Vedas are the form of Pinaki Rudra.

Girish- 

The description of Lord Shiva's abode is found in three places. The first Bhadravat-place which is on the east side of Kailash, over Lahityagiri. The second place is on Mount Kailash and the third is on Mount Monjwan. Although Lord Shankar is an icon of vairaagya and restraint, but because of his complete leela's on Kailash, Mount Kailash is especially favourite to him. Kailash mountain  god Rudra is famous in his third form called Girish. There are two reasons for Lord Rudra's abode on Mount Kailash. The first reason is a boon given to his devotee and friend Kubera to be adjacent to his Alkapuri and the second reason is Giriraj of Rudra's Pranavallabha Uma incarnated here in Himwan.

Sthanu - 

In the Shaivagam, the fourth form of Lord Rudra has been described as Sthanu . By incorporating Parvati in his vamang(left body), he is the one who provides happiness to her and Stham Rudra, the pompous god of the entire Devamandal. He is self-effacing, self-righteous and fully selfless.

 Bharga- 

The fifth Rudra Bhagwan Bharga has been called a Bhayvinaashak . May Chandrabhushan, Jatadhari, Trinetra, Bhasmojjwal, the Bhaynaashak God live forever in our hearts. The only Mahadev Bhagwan Bharga Rudra is the one who liberates the suffering world from sorrow and fear at the earliest.

Sadasiva- 

The sixth form of Rudra in Saivagam is called Sadasiva. Those who create all the worlds by becoming Brahma, preserve everyone in the form of Vishnu and in the end kill everyone in Rudra form, they are eternal. According to Shiva Purana, the first formless Parbrahma Rudra imagined the idol for himself with his Leela power. This idol was endowed with all opulence qualities, the only Vandaniya of all, auspicious form, the form of the form and the center of all cultures. By imagining that idol, he became a unique Brahman, thus, the idol of Parabrahma Rudra, who is idolized, is the embodiment of him.

Shiva - 

The seventh form of Rudra in Saivagam is called Shiva. All the welfare and virtues of Shiva are the shrines of Gayatri, which Omkar is the building. The word Shiva signifies eternal science. The word Shiva is derived from the Kantau dhatu, which means that the name of the one whom everyone wants is Shiva.

 Har-

Saivagam, the name of the eighth form of Lord Rudra is Har, who bears Bhujang-Bhushan, the deity whose feet are gracious. Lord Hara has been called Sarp Bhushan. It means that everything is in the body of God . Both creation of time and its destruction on time are both works of Lord Rudra. There can be no more destructive tamoguni than snake, because the instinct to eat even your children is seen in the snake caste itself. That is why God carries a garland of snakes around his neck. Even after holding Kaal in his Bhushan form, God Har is timeless.

Sharva-

 The ninth form of Lord Rudra is named Sharva. Tripurahanta, the person who breaks the arrogant of Yamaraja, the khangpani is enjoyable for us. They are also called Shiva Rudra because of the destruction of Tripura riding on the Sarvadevamayya chariot. One of the sarvas also means omnipresent, supreme soul and Lord of the triloki.

Kapali- 

According to Shaivagam the name of the tenth Rudra is Kapali. The demolition of Daksha-Yajna and the angry Mukh Kamal Shulpan Kapali should provide us with happiness day and night. According to Padyapuran (Srishtikhand-17), Lord Rudra got angry in this form and destroyed the Daksha-Yajna.

Bhava-

 The name of the eleventh form of Lord Rudra is Bhava. Yogendra whose feets are worshiped, who are the refuge of the past and devotees from duality and from whom Vedanta has arisen. In this form, he is present in the whole world and Vedanta as Jagatguru.
 And by teaching yoga, we lead the way for autobiography. The seventh chapter of the Lingapurana and the twenty-second chapter of the earlier part of the Shivpuran have a special description of the yogic form of Lord Bhava Rudra and his disciples. In each age, Lord Bhava incarnates as Rudra Yogacharya and preaches the Yogamarga to his disciples (his names are Ruru, Dadhichi, Agastya and Upamanyu).
Here is brief information. After sometime eleven Rudras will be described with detailed information on this blog.

How did Ganga come to on Earth?


How did Ganga come to on Earth?

Shiva has a close relationship with the Himalayas and the Ganges, and his relationship with the Ganges has greatly enriched popular portraiture.

For Hindus, all water, be it ocean or river, lake or rainwater, is a symbol of life and its nature is considered divine.

Prominent in this context are the three sacred rivers - Ganga, Yamuna and the imaginary Saraswati. Of these, the first river is the most important.


Since the Ganges is feminine, she is labeled as a woman with long hair. In the form of a goddess, Ganga washes away the sins of all those who are so lucky that their ashes should flow into its sacred waters.
In a place that addresses the Ganges in the Brahmavaivarta Purana, Shiva himself says- 'During the millions of births on earth, a sinner who gathers mountains of sin is vanished with the mere touch of the Ganges.
Whoever breathes in the humid air from this holy water, it will be sinless . ' It is believed that every person becomes holy with the mere touch of the Ganges's divine body. The most divine stories in the Indian mythology are about the circumstances in which the Ganges descended from heaven and came to earth.
Once upon a time there were some demons who used to harass Brahmin, sages, saints etc. and also used to obstruct their worshipping . When they were chased,then they hid in the sea, but they came again at night and used to harass to peoples.

Once the sages prayed to the sage Agastya to free them from the torture of demonic terror. For his help, Agastya sages drank the sea including the demons.

Thus those demons came to an end but the earth became void of water. The humans then prayed to another sage Bhagirath to relieve them from the calamity of drought.
In order to be eligible for such a great boon, Bhagiratha spent a thousand years doing penance and then went to near Brahma and prayed to him that he take down the river Ganges of Swargalok to earth.

Pleased with Bhagiratha's penance, Brahma pledged to try as hard as he could and asked Shiva for help in this matter.

He explained that if that great river of Swargalok fell on the earth with all its velocity and the weight of all water, earthquakes would occur and would result in great destruction. Hence, one has to reduce the velocity of his fall by suffering the trauma and no one else can do this work except Shiva.
Bhagirath kept fasting and praying. Shiva pleased when the time comes. He let Ganga fall on her stream to the earth and to ease his shock, he laid his head between the earth and the sky. The water of Swargalok then flowed smoothly through his hair in the Himalayas and reached the Indian plains from there.

Now let's move to the second story, this story is more popular among people

In the ancient time, a  king named Sagar ruled in Ayodhya. He had one son from one queen and sixty thousand sons from another queen . After some time, there was a desire to perform Ashwamedha - Yagya in the mind of Maharaja Sagara.
King Sagarna started the yagna by entrusting the responsibility of protecting the yagya horse to his grandson Anshuman. But on the festival day, Indra stole the yajna's horse of King Sagara as a demon and left it near the ashram of Lord Kapil Muni.
Sixty thousand sons of King Sagara, locating the horse, reached the ashram of Kapil Muni. The yajna's horse of Maharaja Sagar was also grazing there. The Sagar's sons were extremely angry considering Lord Kapil as a thief.

They ran to kill Kapil Muni, calling him a misdemeanor. Lord Kapil burnt them with a roar.

Later, finding his uncles, Prince Anshuman arrived at Kapil Muni's ashram, where Sagar's sixty thousand sons were burned to ashes in Kapil Muni's wrath.
Mahatejsvi Anshuman wished for jalanjali to give them water, but there was no water reservoir anywhere. At the same time, he saw Garuda. He said to Anshuman - "Narashrestha! Your uncles will not be getting salvation by the ordinary jalanjali .
Try to bring the eldest daughter of Himwan Gangaji to on this earth and tarpan own uncles with their holy water. At the same time, Lokpavani will satisfy sixty thousand princes's ash with their water, at that time she will get reach them all to heaven. '
Anshuman returns with a horse. Even after trying hard, he could not bring Ganga ji to the earth. Later Bhagiratha was born in his dynasty. He handed over the burden of the kingdom to his ministers and started doing heavy austerities at Gokarna-tirtha to bring Ganga ji to earth.
After thousands of years of rigorous penance of Bhagiratha, Lokpathama Brahma came there and said - 'Maharaj Bhagirath! I am very happy with your penance. May your wish be fulfilled. I can give you to Ganga ji, but none other than Lord Shankar has the power to hold the eldest daughter of Himwan's Gangaji.
You should do austerity to Lord Rudra to stop this great velocity of the Ganges. ”Brahma ji became disappeared by saying this. After Lord Brahma left, King Bhagiratha continued to perform rigorous austerities of Lord Shankar for a year continuously by standing the thumb on the earth.

 Lord Pashupati appeared a year later.  He said to Bhagiratha ‘Narashrestha!  I am very happy with you.  I will definitely do your favorite work.  By holding Giriraj Kumari Ganga on my forehead, I will pave the way for the welfare of your ancestors as well as entire beings.

After getting the approval of Lord Shankar, the eldest daughter of the Himalayas, Ganga ji fell on the forehead of Lord Shankar from the sky with great force. At that time, Ganga ji had a strong desire in mind to win Lord Shankar.
She is the elder sister-in-law of Lord Shankar in relationship with Lord Shankar being married to Parvati ji. It was she who gave birth to Kartikeya by absorbing the power of Lord Shankar on the prayers of the gods.
Ganga ji thought that with her strong velocity, I will enter the patallok with to Lord Shankar. Sensing this arrogance of Ganga ji, Shiva ji got angry and thought of making Ganga ji invisible.

 Anyway, Ganga ji is the symbol of devotion and ego is the biggest hindering element in devotion.

Lord Shiva sometimes rages at his devotees to destroy his ego and his anger is also to compensation. When the holy Ganga fell on Lord Rudra's head, she got badly entangled in the trap of his jata.
Even after trying many time , she could not get out.  She kept circling in it for many years, getting entangled in the trap. When Bhagiratha saw that the Ganges had become invisible in Lord Shiva's jatamandal, he again started meditating to the pleasure of Bholenath. Satisfied with his tenacity, Lord Shiva took Ganga ji and left it at Bindu Sarovar.
The seven streams of Ganga ji, such as the streams of Hadini, Pavani and Nalini, went towards the east and Suchakshu, Sita and Mahanadi Sindhu - these three streams went towards the west. The seventh stream followed Mahajan Bhagiratha and came to earth. Thus, with the grace of Lord Shankar, Ganga descended on the earth and with the salvation of the ancestors of Bhagiratha, the Ganges reached the  world.
In this way, the water of Ganga ji on the forehead of God Sankar from the sky and from there on earth was getting amazing beauty. All the gods were standing in the sky watching this wonderful and exquisite view of Gangavataran. The water of the Ganges used to fall on the land, sometimes rising on the high stones .

The river Ganges is considered valuable due to its special water and its special properties. Its water maintains its purity and sanctity for a long time. It is believed that Ganga was born from the feet of Lord Vishnu. Also, she lives in Shiva's jata. Taking bath, worshiping and seeing the Ganges eliminates sins, liberates from diseases. The shrines which are situated on the banks of the Ganges are considered more sacred than others.

Shri Krishna killed Eklavya, but why? .....


Shri Krishna killed Eklavya, but why? .....


In the Mahabharata period, the Shringverpur state spread far and wide in the coastal region of Prayag (Allahabad), whose king was Nishadraj Hiranyadhanu father of Eklavya. Shringverpur, situated on the banks of the Ganges, was its strong capital. At that time, the power of the state of Shringverpur was equal to the larger states of Magadha, Hastinapur, Mathura, Chedi and Chanderi.


The valor of Nishad Hiranyadhanu and his commander Giribir was famous.
 The public was happy and prosperous with the affection of Nishadraj Hiranyadhanu and Rani Sulekha. The king use to governed the state with the help of the Amatya (ministerial) council.
Nishadraj Hiranyadhanu received a son by Queen Sulekha named "Abhidyumna". Generally people called him by the name "Abhay". At the age of five years, Eklavya's education was arranged in the elite Gurukul.
Seeing the child's minds and dedication in the field of war skills from childhood, the Guru addressed the child's name as "Eklavya". When Ekalavya was young, Hiranyadhanu got him married to the Sunita, who was daughter of one of his Nishad friends.

Ekalavya wanted to get higher education of archery. At that time, Guru Drona was famous in archery. But he used to teach only Brahmin and Kshatriya classes and was a staunch opponent of giving education to Shudras.

Maharaj Hiranyadhanu greatly explained to Eklavya that Drona will not teach you. But Ekalavya persuaded the father that Acharya Drona himself would make him his disciple after being impressed by his archery . But Eklavya was not right to think - Drona took the plunge and drove him away from the ashram.
Ekalavya was not one of those who gave up and did not want to return home without getting arms education. So Eklavya made a statue of Acharya Drona in the forest and started practicing archery.
Soon he attained mastery in archery. Once Dronacharya came to the same forest with his disciples and a dog. Eklavya was practicing archery at that time. The dog barked at Eklavya.
The barking of the dog was hindering Eklavya's practice, so he stopped the dog's mouth with his arrows. Eklavya shot arrows with the skill that the dog was not hurt. The dog ran to Drona.
Drona and the disciples were surprised to see such excellent archery. He started searching for that great archer, suddenly he saw Eklavya, the archery which he wanted to confine only to the Kshatriyas and Brahmins, he was worried about seeing it go into the hands of the Shudras.
Then he remembered the promise of making Arjuna the best archer in the world. Drona asked Eklavya - From whom did you learn this archery? Eklavya - Acharya Eklavya pointed to the statue made of Drona clay.
Drona asked Eklavya for Gurudakshina as his right-hands thumb, Eklavya cut off own thumb and offered it to Guru Drona.
Kumar Eklavya comes to father Hiranyadhanu after sacrificing thumb. Ekalavya regains skill in archery without his thumbs. In all the archery competitions held in today's era, thumb is not used, so it would be appropriate to call Eklavya the father of modern archery.
After the death of his father, he becomes the ruler of the Shringaber state. With the advice of the Amatya Council he not only manages his kingdom, but also constitutes a strong army and navy of Nishad Bhils and extends the boundaries of his kingdom.
In the Vishnu Purana and Harivansh Purana it is mentioned that after becoming the king of Nishad dynasty, Eklavya invaded Mathura on behalf of Jarasandha's army and almost eliminated the Yadav army. After seeing the outcry in the Yadav dynasty, when Krishna saw Ekalavya with a bow and arrow with just four fingers in his right hand, he could not believe the scene.


Eklavya alone was able to stop hundreds of Yadav descent warriors. In this war, Krishna killed Eklavya with deceit. His son Ketuman was killed by Bhima in the Mahabharata war.
When all the Pandavas were declaring their valor after the war, Krishna confessed his love of Arjuna.
 Krishna had clearly told Arjuna that "What have I done in your love." For this to be called the best archer of the world, for this I get killed Dronacharya, weakened Mahaprakrami Karna and , not willingly killed Bhil son.

Power of Bhajan


Power of Bhajan

 Surdas ji was blind from birth, but look at the glory of bhajan, when he used to do bhajan, then Bal Krishna used to sit in front of him and listen to his bhajan. We cannot  see God even by looking through our eyes and Surdas ji could see him blindly.


Once he was doing bhajan, he got lost in the mood in which Krishnaji was dancing with Radha ji and then one of Radha ji's paayal fell.
So Surdas ji lifted the paayal, then Lord Krishna said that Surdas ji when Radha ji came to ask for his payal, then you grab her feet.
So when Radha ji came to take the payal , Surdas ji caught her feet and said untill both of you will give me darshan, I will not left your feet,
So both of them gave him darshan and he had internal eyes and but despite of they also gave him divine vision. And when she returned back to giving darshan, Surdas ji said - take these divine eyes.
Then Radha ji said - that you are blind from birth, now you do not want to see the world, then Surdas ji said that I have seen you, now I do not see anything.

We can not even see with our eyes and he looked blindly. 

Whose strength will be present in the bhajan, Banke Bihari will appear in the same way,  there is no age of the bhajan , then the one who did not do bhajan in his childhood, in teenage they says that I will do bhajan in old age.
So God also says that just as you are giving me the remaining time of your life, they will also do the same with you. Because the devotee who worships the God, like God gives him the same.
And when bad time comes in person life,then he start to curses the God. They forgets whether we did bhajan of God,

First ask ownself because unless that person does bhajan , then how will Banke Bihari come.

There was Haridas ji who revealed God to him through his music practice, how he revealed that there was power in his bhajan as he sang that raga, and Krishna ji appeared with Radha ji, so we have to see that there is a lot of power in the bhajan , Don't think bhajan is normal. 
God is far from bothering those who do his bhajan, he cannot even think of giving trouble to his devotees. They test him before appointing Jeeva in his daily blissful service.

God is anteryaami, he know well who has eligible, yet there is a need to take a test because it also helps to know the living being has advanced in the bhajan.
You must have noticed that nowadays fruits sellar bring raw fruits and ready them with carbide by taking them to their warehouse, but those fruits are neither tasty like natural ripe fruits nor good for health.


Similarly, if God brings the creatures to perfection without any bhajan , then they too will not be suitable for serving like fruits ripened with carbide.
Those who truly love God or want to receive his service, they do not feel it difficult to take the services taken by God, but they enjoy trials because God is always with the devotee at that time.
Those who do not want God from their heart or do devotion to God for any selfishness, they are afraid of trials, sorrows and sufferings.

Devotees only ask for trouble from God because everyone remembers God in sorrow except the wicked person. The second reason for this is that the devotees, after battling with their own troubles in our life, we want to teach the living beings that if such incidents happen in your life too, then you too should not give up the bhajan of God.

Mahashivratri


Mahashivratri

Mahashivratri (colloquially Shivaratri) is a major festival of Hindus. This is the main festival of Lord Shiva. Shivaratri is said to be the best vrat (fast) in Hindu scriptures. It has also been called Vratraj in many description and it has been written about its importance that it is a Mahavrata to give all four Purusharthas i.e. Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. It is also written in the scriptures that Shivaratri comes on the Chaturdashi tithi of Krishna Paksha in every month, but Shivaratri in the month of Falgun is Maha Shivaratri, when Shiva was united with Shakti and the origin of the universe began.

Shiva's glory is infinite. Their form, color and qualities are unique. All creation is Shivamayi. There is Shiva before creation and only Shiva remains after the destruction of the universe. It is believed that Brahma created the universe, but when the expansion of the universe was not possible, then Brahma meditated on Shiva and practiced severe penance.Shiva appeared as Ardhanarishwar. He separated Shivaa (Shakti or Goddess) from the half part of his body. In this way, Shiva is divided into two parts for creation , because without two, creation of universe is impossible. Shiva performs five types of works which are enlightening. Creating the world, sustaining the world, destroying the world, changing the world and providing freedom from the world.
Rudra remains at the time of creation's beginning and destruction. It is said that in the Shiva descended from Brahm in the form of Rudra in the midnight of Mahashivaratri. on the same day, during the Holocaust, Shiva destroyed the entire universe with the flame of his third eye while performing Tandava dance. That is why the practice of celebrating Maha Shivaratri or Kaal Ratri as a festival.

According to the scriptures, Lord Shiva is pleased by saying, listening to and reading the story of this fast.

Phalgun Krishna Chaturdashi is celebrated Shivaratri festival. It is believed that the universe started on this day. According to mythology, the creation of universe this day began with the rise of Agnilinga (which is the giant form of Mahadev).
Most people believe that on this day Lord Shiva was married to Goddess Parvati. Mahashivaratri is considered to be the most important of the 12 Shivaratris that occur in the year.
 In Kashmir Shaivism, this festival is also known as 'Har - Ratri and colloquially say 'Heraath' or 'Herath'.


In Hinduism, worship of Bholenath is considered very important. It is believed that whoever worships Bholenath with true mind and faith, all the sufferings of his life are removed.
Every person who worships Lord Shiva's meditation worship starts getting rid of the difficulties of his life and also gets the courage to get out of difficulties. Monthly Shivaratri is celebrated on Chaturdashi date of Krishna Paksha of every month. Apart from Mahashivratri, 12 Shivaratri also come in the year, which have different importance. It is believed that Bholenath manifests itself in the form of Shiva linga on the day of monthly Shivaratri.

It is told in the Shiva Purana that Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu were the first to worship Lord Shiva as a formless symbol.

 According to our Dharma Puranas, worshiping Shiva on the day of monthly Shivaratri after Mahashivaratri is very important.
 * A lot of stories have been described in our Dharma Puranas about Shivaratri *.

* Story | *

 At one time Lord Shiva became very angry. The whole world was going to be destroyed in the fire of his anger, but Goddess Parvati pacified the anger of Shiva and pleased him. For this reason, Chaturdashi Tithi of Krishna Paksha of every month is celebrated as monthly Shivaratri.
According to another legend, once there was an estrangement between Lord Vishnu and Brahma. There was a difference of opinion between the two about who is the best among Brahma and Vishnu.
Shivaji appears in front of them as a Agnistambha (pillar of fire) and tells Vishnu and Brahma Ji that I do not see any end of this Agnistambha (fire pillar) . Then Lord Vishnu and Brahma ji realize the mistake and they have made apologize to Shiva for their mistake.That is why it is said that whoever observes Shivaratri vrat (fast) , his ego is destroyed and the human being awakens the same feeling towards all things. Fasting of Shivaratri brings an end to the disorders within the human being. Shivaratri fast and worship are very important in Hinduism. The fast of Shivaratri is considered to be one of the biggest fasts in Hinduism. On this day, Shiva is specially worshiped in all Shiva temples.
On the day of Samudra Manthan Mahashivratri, Lord Shiva kept a poison named Kalkut in his throat. Which came out at the time of churning the sea.

Story of hunter

 Once Parvati ji asked Lord Shiva Shankar, 'What is the best and simple fast-worship, from which the beings of the mrityuloka get your grace easily?'

In reply, Shivji told this story by telling Parvati to observe the fast of 'Shivratri' - 'Once there was a hunter named Chitrabhanu. He use to raised his family by killing animals. He was indebted to a saahukaar (moneylender), but could not repay his loan on time. The angry saahukaar (moneylender) captives the hunter at Shivamath. Coincidentally it was Shivratri that day.
The hunter meditated and kept listening to religious things related to Shiva. He also heard the story of Shivaratri fast on Chaturdashi. Just before dusk, the moneylender called near to him and talked about repaying the loan. He promising to return the loan at next day and the hunter get freed the captivity of saahukaar.
Like his daily routine he went out hunting in the forest. But due to being in captive all day long, he was disturbed by hunger and thirst. To hunt, he started making a halt on a bel tree(wood apple) on the banks of a pond.
Under the bel tree there was the Shivling which was covered with belleaves . Hunter did not knowing the any things. The branches he broke while making the halt that incidentally fell on the Shivling .
In this way, fasting and thirsty hunters were also complete fasted throughout the day and bel leaves were also offered on the Shivling. After sometime in the night, a pregnant deer came to drink water at the pond.
As soon as the hunter drew an arrow on the bow, the lady deer said, 'I am pregnant. She said to "I will birth child soon" . You will kill two creatures simultaneously, which is not right. I will give birth to the child and will be presented to you soon, then you kill me. ' The hunter loosened the chord and the lady deer disappeared into the wild bushes.
Shortly after, another lady deer emerged from there. The hunter was very pleased . After coming close, he put the bow on the arrow. Seeing him, the lady deer politely pleaded, 'O Pardhi! I freed from the menses a while ago.
I am lustful. I am wandering in search of my beloved I will meet my husband and come to you soon. ' The hunter let him go as well.
He was perturbed over losing his prey twice. He was in all sort of thoughts. The last hour of the night was passed. Then another lady deer was crossing with her children.
It was a golden opportunity for hunter. He did not take long to shoot arrows at the bow. He was about to release the arrow that the lady deer said, 'O Pardhi!' I will return to giving these children to their father. Do not kill me this time.
The hunter laughed and said, leave the prey in front, I am not such a fool. I have lost my prey twice before. My children must be suffering from hunger and thirst.
In response, the deer again said, as you are worried about your children, so same as me. Therefore, in the due to worry of children, I am beg to life for a while. Hey Pardhi! Trust me, I promise to give them to their father and return immediately.
Hearing the deer's sad voice, the hunter felt pity on him. He let that lady deer escape too. In the absence of hunting, the hunter was sitting on the bel tree and being thrown down by breaking the bel leaves.
When the early morning , a strong deer came on the same path. The hunter thought that he would surely hunt it.
Seeing the arrow of the hunter, the deer said in a polite voice, O brother! If you have killed the three lady deers and small children that came before me, do not delay in killing me too, so that I do not have to suffer a single moment in their disconnection.
I am the husband of those lady deers . If you have given them life, please give me some life too. I will meet her and appear before you.
As soon as he heard the deer, the whole night happened incident rounded in front of the hunter, he narrated the whole story to the deer. Then the deer said, 'The way my three wives have gone as promised, they will not be able to follow own dharma due my death.
So, just as you have left them as a believing , let me also go. I will appear before you soon with all of them.
'Fasting, night-awakening and offering the bel leves on the Shivling, the violent heart of the hunter was purged. Bhagavad Shakti was settled in his heart. The bow and arrow were easily left from his hand.
Due to the compassion of Lord Shiva, his violent heart filled with compassionate feelings. He started burning in the flame of repentance remembering his past deeds.
Shortly afterwards, the deer and his family appeared in front of the hunter, so that he could hunt them, but the hunter was very sorry for seeing such veracity, sattvikta and collective love of wild animals.
There was a flood of tears from his eyes. By not killing that deer's family, the hunter removed his hard heart from living violence and made him soft and kind forever.
All the Dev Samaj (Gods society) from Devalok were also watching this event. As soon as the event ended, the Gods and Goddesses made flowering on them. Then the hunter and deer family attained moksha '.

This is the message of Shiva Katha

 According to the story of the hunter, Mahadev also gives the results of the fast inadvertently.  But in fact Mahadev was pleased with the kindness of the hunter.  Despite noticing his family's suffering, the hunter let the deer's family go.This compassion really makes that hunter superior to those pandits and pujaris(priests) who want to please Shiva only by night awakening, fasting and milk, curd, bel-leaf etc. The most important thing in this story is that in this story special emphasis is laid on 'Unknowingly worshiped'.This does not mean that Shiva accepts the worship performed in any way, or Bholenath cannot distinguish between known or unknown worship inadvertently.Actually the hunter was not worshiping Shiva.  It also means that he was not even wishing for any kind of wish.  He give time and life to the deer family which is similar to Shiva worship.  Shiva means welfare.  It was due to the welfare of those innocent creatures that he got to know the Shivatatva and get darshan of Shiva.

It is also not necessary to have Mahashivaratri day for doing charity.  There are four types of Shivaratri worship in Purana.  Monthly Shivaratri, First Adi Shivaratri, and Mahashivratri.  The last Shivaratri mentioned Purana is - Nitya Shivaratri.  In fact every night is 'Shivaratri' if we immerse ourselves in those supreme welfare Ashutosh Bhagwan and follow the path of welfare, that is the true fast of Shivaratri.

The ritual

Several types of garlands of marigold flowers are offered to Shiva. On this occasion Lord Shiva is consecrated in many ways. Jalabhisheka: by water and Dugabhisheka: by milk.
Very early in the morning, the temples of Lord Shiva are gathering with devotees, young people, ladies and old men who all come to worship the traditional Shivalinga and pray to the Lord.
Devotees bathe in holy places such as Ganga, or (in the Shiva Sagar of Khajuraho) or any other sacred water source at sunrise. These are rituals of purification, which form an important part of all Hindu festivals. Clean clothes are wear after the holy bath, devotees carry a pot of water to the temple to bathe Shivalinga. Women and men both pray to Surya, Vishnu and Shiva. The bells and "Shankar ji ki jai" sound resonate in the temples. . Devotees revolve the Shivling three or seven times and then offer water or milk on the Shivling as well.

According to Shiva Purana, six things must be included in Mahashivaratri Puja:

War between Mahadev and Shriram



War between Mahadev and Shriram


The return of Lord Shri Rama to Ayodhya was not the end of the Ramayana story… but the war continued even after Shri Ram returned to Ayodhya. One of these incidents is when Lord Shree Rama( the incarnation of Lord Vishnu) challenged for battle to Lord Shiva who the god of destruction .

Why are you surprised… You must have heard the battle between the demon and God, but what kind of war was fought where a fierce battle was fought between two Gods, Lord Shri Ram and Shiva. Actually, this battle was fought by Lord Rama to keep his reputation and Bholeshankar was to protect of his word. Let it be said that this was a fierce war, from which the whole earth trembled. The gods were eagerly waiting for the end of this war.


It is on those days when Shri Ram's Ashwamedh Yagya was going on. Under the leadership of younger brother Shatrughan of Shri Ram, an army of innumerable heroes was going to conquer the whole region, wherever the horse of the yagna was going. In this sequence, the horse of the yagna was captured by many kings but they had to bow before the army of Ayodhya. Apart from Shatrughna, there were many maharathis in the army including Hanuman, Sugriva and Bharat's son Pushkal, which was not to win possible even for the gods.
After traveling to many places, the horse of Yajna reached Devpur, where King Veeramani's kingdom was. King Veeramani was very devout and an ardent devotee of Shri Ram and Mahadev. His two sons Rukmangad and Shubhangad were superior among the heroes. King Veeramani's brother Veerasingh was also an atirathi . King Veeramani pleased Lord Rudra by doing penance and Mahadev gave him the boon to protect him and his entire kingdom. Due to being protected by Mahadev, no one dared to attack his kingdom.

When the horse of the Yajna reached his kingdom while wandering, Rukmangad, the son of King Veeramani took him captive and told the ordinary soldiers of Ayodhya that the horse of the yajna is with him, so they go and tell Shatrughan to duly doing war for redeem his horse.

 When Rukmangad gave this information to his father, he was very worried and told his son that you have inadvertently caught the horse of Shriram's yajna . Shri Ram is our friend and there is no justification for enmity with him, so return the yagna horse.
On this, Rukmangad said, "Father, I have even challenged them to war, so now returning them to horse without war will be an insult to both us and them." Now what has happened cannot be changed, so you should allow me to fight.

On hearing the son's logical things , Veeramani ordered him to equip the army. 

 King Veeramani, along with his brother Veerasingh and his two sons Rukmangad and Shubhangad, came to the battle field by taking a huge army.
Here, when Shatrughan got information that the horse of his yagna had been taken captive, he became very angry and along with his entire army came to the battlefield. He asked who would free the horse from enemies army?

Then Bharat's son Pushkal said, "Tatashri! Do not worry. With the blessings of your blessings and the grace of Tat Sriram, I will kill all these yodhas(warriors) today and get free the horse.

Both of them were talking in such a way that Pawansut Hanuman said - "O Shatrughna! I have no doubt about the valor of you and vatsa Pushkal but attacking King Veeramani's kingdom is difficult even for Parampita Bramha himself because this city Protected by Mahakal. Therefore, it would be appropriate that first we should explain Raja Veeramani by negotiation and if we cannot get explain then we should inform Shri Ram. King Veeramani respects Shriram very much, so he will not be able to avoid them and this problem will be solved without war.

Hearing Hanuman, Shatrughan said, "O Mahabali! I am seeing you for the first time wanting to get rid of war. 

 It would be a matter of great shame for us if Shri Ram had to come to war. If this city is protected by Mahadev, then it is impossible for us to win, but still we are Kshatriyas, that is why we cannot withdraw from the war now. ”Having said this, he reached the battlefield with the army.
In the battlefield, he once again asked Veeramani to return to the yajna's horse, but his refusal eventually led to a terrible war. Pushkal went directly to fight against King Veeramani.
Both were matchless heroes, both of them started fighting using different types of weapons. Hanuman started fighting with Mahaprakrami Veerasingh, brother of King Veeramani. Rukmangad and Shubhangad attacked Shatrughan.


A fierce battle ensued in Pushkal and Veeramani. Pushkal attacked Veeramani with eight sharp edges arrows which King Veeramani could not bear and faintly fell on own chariot. Veerasingh used many weapons on Hanuman, but what could spoils Pawanputra with him?
He uprooted a huge tree and attacked Veerasingh. Due to this, his chariot was destroyed and Veerasinh became unconscious while blood-spewing.
On the other hand, there was an extraordinary war between the  Shatrughan and King Veeramani's son, but Rukmangad and Shubhangad could not overcome the power of Shatrughan and lost war by them. Seeing his victory, all the heroes of Shri Ram's army started making roar.
On the other hand, when King Veeramani's unconscious was end away, he saw that his army's defeat was certain. Seeing this, he prayed to Lord Rudra for help.

Mahadev, knowing his devotee in trouble, sent all the Ganas including Nandi, Bhringi under the leadership of Virbhadra to the war zone. 

 All the followers of Mahakal attacked on Ayodhya's army shouting their Mahadeva's names.
Shriram's army felt as  the holocaust had come. When he saw the army of Mahadev, including Rudravatar Virabhadra, Nandi, Bhringi with terrible face, all the soldiers trembled with fear.
Shatrughna said - "How can the Veerabhadra who had cut the forehead of Daksha Prajapati, who was not defeated by Narayana himself and who is equal to Mahakal himself in sharpness and equanimity, how be defeated in battle?"
Hearing this, Pushkal said - "Hey Tatashri! Don't be unhappy. I will just a moment cut the head of this Virbhadra and secure  to the  our army." Saying this, Pushkal went directly attacked to Virbhadra.

When Hanuman saw this, he said to Shatrughna - "It is disastrous. Pushkal is fighting with Virbhadra in the heroic item. His war skills are only a game for Virabhadra."

Hearing this, Shatrughna dismounted and said - "O Mahavir! Puskal was sent by Bharat bhaiya to the battle ground on my trust. If anything happens to Puskal ,what I will answer him. O Pawanputra! You have helped Sri Ram in the war of Lanka, so Now save Pushkal from Virbhadra anyhow . "
Hearing this, Hanuman went towards Virabhadra to help Pushkal without delay. On the other hand, Pushkal used all his divine weapons on Virbhadra but Virbhadra destroyed it off laughing.
He said to Pushkal - "O child! You age not yet attained death, so move away from the battlefield." But Pushkal, not listening to him, attacked him with power, who went directly to the marmastan(weak part of the body) of Virbhadra. After this, Virbhadra, trembling with anger, cut Pushkal's forehead with a trident.

By the time Hanuman reached Virabhadra, Pushkal had died.

 On the other hand, Nandi, Bhringi etc., made a terrible attack on Shatrughna and tied Shatrughna in the loop when he was unhappy in the slaughter of Pushkal.
When Hanuman saw Pushkal's dead body, in a fit of rage, attacked Virbhadra. He attacked Virbhadra with his full power, causing Virabhadra to fall back several hands. He had never suffered such a powerful attack in his life.
He became frantic with anger and attacked on Hanuman. Then there was such a catastrophic war that both of army stopped their hands and started watching the war of both. Both were Rudravataras, both of them had no cross of force and the heat of both of them was causing such heat as thunderbolt.
Neither of the two was ready to retreat and it seemed that their strikes would destroy the creation. Seeing the horrors of their war, ordinary soldiers closed their eyes in fear. On the other hand, when Nandi saw that there could be no result of their war, they came to Veerabhadra's help and seeing no other solution, they used Shivastra and tied Hanuman in the loop.
Now seeing Shatrughna disappointed, Hanuman said - "I already told you that this city is protected by Mahakal but you did not listen to me. Now the only way to avoid this crisis is that Shri Ram comes here to stop this war. "

On hearing this, Shatrughan remembered Shri Ram.

 Hearing the call of his brother and devotees, Shriram immediately came to the battlefield along with Lakshmana and Bharata. Seeing them, as the whole army was got courage and they were convinced that their victory was certain. Sriram first freed Shatrughna and Lakshmana freed Hanuman.

When Shri Ram saw that Pushkal had passed away, he felt very sad. Bharata fainted with grief. Then Shri Ram got angry and told Virbhadra that just as you have killed Pushkal, now also consider the end of your life.

Saying this, Shriram attacked the Shivganas with his army. Soon he came to know that ordinary weapons are useless on Shivaganas, so he started to hurting all Shivaganas including Veerabhadra and Nandi from the divine weapons provided by Maharishi Vishwamitra and Mahadev himself.
The Shivaganas were unable to stop the weapons of their own Lord Mahadev and, not crossing the power of Sri Ram, Lakshmana, Hanuman, Bharata and Shatrughna, all the ganas invoked Mahadeva in one voice.

When Mahadev saw that his army was in trouble, he himself appeared in the battlefield. 

 In order to see the combination of Hari and Hari, all the gods themselves were situated in the sky with the Supreme Father Brahma. When Shri Ram saw that Mahadev himself had come to the battlefield, he gave up his weapon and offered pranaam to Lord Rudra and praised him.
Praising Mahakal, he said - "O lord of the whole universe! I killed Mahaprakrami Ravana by your majesty. You yourself came to Rameswaram as a Jyotirlinga. Whatever force we have is also due to your blessings and this The Ashwamedha Yagya I have done is also being done by your own will.
That's why please bless us and end this war. "Hearing this, Lord Rudra said -" O Ram! You are another form of Vishnu himself and similar to him in strength and power . I am who you are and I am who you are. But I have given the blessing of my devotee Veeramani to protect him, so I cannot withdraw from this war. So leave you hesitant and fight against me.

Shriram obeyed Mahakala and started fighting. Shri Ram used all his weapons on Mahakal but could not satisfy them. Then Hanuman suddenly showed own strength and wrapped Nandi in his tail.

At the same time, Shriram used the weapon which yawned at Mahadev, which caused sleep to Mahadev and he started yawning. Seeing this, Nandi tried to get rid of Hanuman's grip, but Hanuman put his full force to stop them.
Mahadev was not disturbed by this, but Nandi suffered immensely. Then Mahadev became alert and laughing freed the  Nandi from Hanuman's tail and praised Hanuman - "O Veer! You are definitely a part of me, otherwise stop Virabhadra and grab Nandi in own loop of any other warrior it is not possible. "
Hanuman, on hearing his praises from Mahadev, bowed to him and the war continued. On the other hand, Shriram fired Brahmastra on Mahadev after all his divine weapons failed. But what is the difference between Brahma and Shiva. That weapon also could not harm Mahadev.
In the end, Sri Ram ready to fired of Pashupatastra and said to Lord Shiva - "O Lord, you gave me this weapon in a boon. Also, you gave this boon that no anyone cannot be faced this weapon in Trilok. This Mahastra provided by you. With this great weapon, you destroyed Tripur in one chance .
Therefore, O Mahadev! I only use it on you with your command and desire. Now you protect your boon. "Saying this, Shriram threw the great weapon on Lord Shiva itself. That weapon fell directly into Mahadev's heart and Lord Rudra was satisfied with it.

He happily said to Shri Ram - "O Purushottam! You and Hanuman have satisfied me in the war. I am very happy that is why you ask for whatever you wish."

To this, Shriram said - "Lord! Please end this war. In this war, along with my brother Bharat's son Pushkal, innumerable warriors have attained death. If you are happy with me then give them life."
Then Mahadev smiled and said thaastastu and brought alive all the warriors on both sides, including Pushkal. After that, with his orders, King Veeramani returned the yagna horse to Sri Ram and handed over his kingdom to Rukmangad and he also went with Sri Ram's army to Digvijay.
