Vishnu ji had to raised Sudarshan Chakra when Shiva did Taandava.


Vishnu ji had to raised Sudarshan Chakra when Shiva did Taandava.

Lord Vishnu is the preserver of this universe  and Lord Shiva is considered the destroyer of the universe.  Both are omnipotent and also devotees of each other.  But do you know that Lord Vishnu once had to raise his Sudarshan  chakra on Lord Shiva when he was doing Tandava. Let's know about that story when Lord Vishnu had to use Sudarshan chakra only on his own god and devotee…
Lord Shiva was married to Goddess Sati, daughter of Prajapati Daksha.  Daksha was the son of Brahma.  After becoming the main king of the whole universe, there was a lot of pride in Daksh.  Daksha did not like his son-in-law, that is, Lord Shiva.

Once Daksha conducted a huge yajna.  In this yajna, Daksha invited all the deities except Lord Shiva and Goddess Sati.  When Goddess Sati came to know of this, she got very angry and even after Lord Shiva refused, she went to the yajna organized by her father.

On reaching there, Goddess Sati asked her father the reason for not to inviting Lord Shiva, then Daksha started speaking abusive words about Lord Shiva.  Goddess Sati could not listen her husband being insulted. Hearing such things against her husband, Goddess Sati felt very sad and sacrificed her life in the fire of yajna there.  When Lord Shiva came to know about this, he was very angry and in anger, he uprooted his jata and hit the ground, which produced Veerabhadra and Mahakali. 

Lord Shiva ordered them to destroy the Yajna of Daksha and in a moment they destroyed the entire Yajna of Daksha.  Virabhadra cut off Daksha's head and threw it in the same fire of yajna.
In the disconnection of his wife, Lord Shiva took out the body of Sati from the Agni Kunda and lifted it on his shoulder and began to Taandava with her body and roam in the entire universe. His anger started destroying the whole world.  Then to stop Lord Shiva, Vishnu ji made 51 pieces of the body of Goddess Sati from Sudarshan Chakra.  Shakti Peetha was established wherever the body parts of Goddess Sati fell. 
In the next life, Sati was born as Parvati and after severe penance, she again got Shiva as her husband. 

The Shiv Purana describes 51 Shakti Peethas.  While 108 Shakti Peethas are described in Devi Bhagwat and 52 in Tantra Chudamani.  After partition, only 42 Shakti Peethas remained in India.  There are 1 in Pakistan, 4 in Bangladesh, 1 in Sri Lanka, 1 in Tibet and 2 in Nepal.
