What caused controversy in Ganga and Saraswati

What caused controversy in Ganga and Saraswati.

In the scriptures and the Puranas, Saraswati has been called the goddess of knowledge.  This goddess of knowledge once did something that no one could even imagine.
Due to that one mistake, Goddess Saraswati got such a curse that she become river had to descend on the earth.  The result of this curse was that  maa Ganga also became a river and Goddess Lakshmi became the beloved Vrinda i.e. the basil plant.

The desire to write any specific information on Goddess Saraswati was arising in my mind for a long time.  So today I will tell you about a dispute between Goddess Saraswati and Goddess Ganga.  This story is found in some mythological texts.  According to the story, Lord Vishnu had three wives - Lakshmi, Ganga and Saraswati. The trio always use to tried to keep Narayan happy so that they could get his special love.  Goddess Lakshmi and Mother Saraswati became jealous once upon seeing Srihari's greater love for Goddess Ganga.  On this Lakshmi ji did not say anything, but Saraswati ji told lot of maledictory to Lord Vishnu for this bias.
Lakshmi maa tried to stop her, but due to anger she continued to reproach Narayan the same way.  She also called Goddess Ganga as a misogynist.  Fed up with this quarrel, Lord Vishnu went out of Vaikuntha for some time. Saraswati felt very sad to see Narayan going out like this, but she also understood the reason for this activity to Goddess Ganga.  In the same anger, she was ready to hit the Ganges.
Seeing this sin, Lakshmi could not stay away from this matter and she came in between them.  She tried to calm them down by explaining both.  Goddess Ganga calmed down due to this, but the anger of Saraswati increased further.
Thus, due to coming in the middle, she got angry and cursed Lakshmi to become a tree.  Goddess Lakshmi immediately turned into a basil plant due to the curse of Saraswati.  Seeing innocent Lakshmi being cursed in such a way, now Ganga was also angry.  She cursed Saraswati to become a river and flow on the earth.  Unhappy with this, Saraswati also cursed Ganga to become a river and carry the ash & bones of humans.
When Lord Vishnu came back, he came to know about the curse of Saraswati and Ganga.  At the same time, seeing Lakshmi transformed into a plant, he felt immense sorrow.  Due to the calm nature and well-being of Goddess Lakshmi, he thought it appropriate to keep her with her as his wife. Thinking that such a situation could come back, he decided to sacrifice Goddess Ganga and Goddess Saraswati.  When both came to know of this, they apologized to Lord Vishnu. Then Srihari said that the Ganges will descend on the earth to wash away the sins of humans.  At the same time, she will stay in his feet as partially, in the kamandal of the Shree Brahma and also in the jatas of Mahadev.  Saraswati will also flow with her on the earth and will also live with him as a partially. Only Goddess Lakshmi will live in Baikunth, becoming his wife completely.  Along with this, he also took the form of Shaligram and marry the Tulsi form of Goddess Lakshmi.  It is said that Ganga and Saraswati have been flowing on the earth as a river due to each other's curse since then. Goddess Saraswati's curse has ended, that is why she has returned to her abode and Goddess Ganga will also be completely disappeared by completing her curse by the end of Kali Yuga.  But even today, the confluence of Ganga and Saraswati can be seen in Prayag.
This story can be read in detail in Brahmavaivart Purana and Devi Bhagavata Purana.

The story of King Shwet in the context of the glory of Annadan.

Annadanan's Mahima Katha .... from Bhavishyapura.

The story of King Shwet in the context of the glory of Annadan.

The king Shwet used to eat flesh of his own body.

Hello & Welcome Friends

Raja Shwet who used to eat the flesh of his own body, but his flesh never dwindled, but what was the reason? What was his deeds ? That he had  to get to eat the flesh of his own body, let's know  through a story, which is mentioned in the Uttar Parva of Bhavishya Purana,

According to the story:-

In ancient times, there was a Chakravarti king named Shwet who conquered in many wars, performed many Yajna rituals, performed many kinds of charity and performed many virtuous work, all the subjects in his kingdom were happy and prosperous.  And finally, after renouncing the kingdom, went to the forest . And whing doing austerities he died and went to heaven . He use to roamed the heaven with the Gods, Gandharvas etc. , and the Apsaras served him . Indra also respected King Shwet very much, the king got all the happiness of the divine clothes ornaments etc. in heaven .

But at the time of meal, he had to come to the earth and eat the flesh of his former body daily, even after eating meat daily, the flesh of that former body did not decrease due to the deeds of previous birth . Thus every day King Shwet became very distraught by eating the flesh of his own body . One day he went to Brahma ji and bowed that and he said, "O Parampita, by your kindness I am enjoying the happiness of heaven, all the gods also respect me very much.  But this sinful hunger is never calm, thats reason  I have to go to earth every day to eat the flesh of my former body.  What disgusting sin deeds did I do, because of which I do not get good food, please free me from this trouble .

Hearing the agony of King Shwet, then Bramhaji said, " O Rajan, you have done many kinds of charity, performed yajna,havan, rituals , virtuous work and satisfied the gurus and peoples. But while living on earth, you have never provided food to the peoples, today you are suffering this pain due to not providing food, no more charity than food. That's why, O Rajan, till you do not go to earth and provide food to the needy peoples, till then you will have to suffer this pain.

Hearing this, King Shwet took orders from Bramhaji and immediately reached earth, where he searched the needy peoples and arranged  food for them. When King Shwet donate grains and  gave food etc. to the needy on earth, then King Shwet was freed from his guilt, and like other people in heaven, he also got good food. 

This was a story .... After a few days I will bring an article to the before you all regarding the importance and glory of food donation .

Story of Varaha Avatar

Story of Varaha Avatar

Hello & Welcome friends

Lord Vishnu has taken a total of 24 avatars.  Varaha is the third incarnation after Matsya and Kashyapa.  Varaha means shukar(Boar).  Through this incarnation, the first step of the divine with the human body took place on earth. The face was Shukar(boar), but the body was human.  At that time, a monster named Hiranyaksha captured heaven by his power and took the whole earth under him.  Hiranyaksha means Hiranya means gold and Aksha means eyes.  One whose eyes are fixed on the other's wealth is Hiranyaksha.

यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भवति भारत ।
अभ्युत्थानमधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम् ।।

This verse of Srimad Bhagavad Gita means that I am born myself when dharma is in dangerous situation  and unrighteousness prevails.  The stories of Lord Vishnu's Dashavatar describe the significance of this verse told by Lord Krishna. The eighth avatar of Vishnu was Shri Krishna himself, his 9th avatar is considered Mahatma Buddha but there are differences on it.  The tenth incarnation is yet to be found, at the end of the Kali Yuga, there are stories of the incarnation of the tenth avatar Kalki.
But here we will talk about Varaha, the third incarnation of Lord Vishnu.  Actually, it is believed that Lord Vishnu incarnated as Varaha, his third incarnation on the third day of Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapad i.e.Bhadon month. Therefore, Shukla Tritiya of this month is also celebrated as Varaha Jayanti. Let us know what was the need for Lord Vishnu to come into Varaha form. Who was it that caused unrighteousness to spread everywhere?

According to the legend, Jai and Vijay, the gatekeepers of Baikuntha Lok, stopped 4 Rishikumaras at the gate while going to Baikuntha Lok, due to which they were cursed that both would have to live being demon on earth for three births. In the first birth, both were born as the sons of Kashyapa and Diti and were called Hiranyakashyap and Hiranyaksha.  Both started harassing the Earthy humans.  The tyranny of Hiranyakashyap and Hiranyaksha was increasing on the earth.  Hiranyaksha started torturing people on performing Yajna ,havana etc.

                   Two stories related to the story of Varaha Avatar are prevalent in the public mind, the first story is described in chapter 13 of the Bhagavata Purana.

According to the 1St story(Bhagavata Purana)

When the Parampita Brahma was creating the universe, he saw that the earth is submerged in unfathomable water and it is impossible to create the creation without the earth, Brahma ji kept thinking for a long time how to get the earth out of this bottomless water.  Brahma Ji was thinking in such a way that then a Varaha of equal size of thumb came out from his nose hole and stood up in the sky.

In view of Brahma ji, that small Varaha  became huge like an elephant in an instant, which Brahma started thinking that which divine creature has appeared here in this boar form, it came out of my nose but in a moment of the  become equal to the mountain.  This is definitely the leela of Lord Vishnu, Brahma ji was thinking that he started roaring loudly and entered the water very fast. When he was entering in the water, divine light was coming out of his eyes and due to taking the form of a boar, he began to search earth by sniffing .
After reaching the abyss, Varaha incarnation Lord Vishnu saw the earth, then holding the earth on his molar, brought it out of the water, but then mighty Hiranyaksha attacked him there. Due to which the Lord became angry like sharp edge the Chakra and he killed him with his leela like a lion kills an elephant. At that time the whole body of the Lord became red with blood as if he had come to hit a red mound of soil.  And took the earth out from water and set the earth on space.
Then all the Gods and Goddesses including Brahmaji praised and worshiped the Varaha Avatar!

According to the second story: -

               There were two demons named Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakashipu who received a boon from Brahmadev that no one could defeat them in the war nor could anyone kill them. After getting boon, both of them started thinking of themselves as immortal. And  they began to understand himself as equivalent to lord Vishnu and in the desire of conquering the three worlds, they went towards Indraloka(Heaven) to do battle. When Indra came to know about this, he left Indraloka(Heaven) and ran away.
When both the demons could not find any in Indralok, Hiranyaksha reached Varun's capital Vibhavari city and said that Varun Dev  you had defeated the demons and performed the Rajsuya Yajna, now you have to defeat me in battle. Come and fight with me, Varun got very angry after hearing about the monster, but he knew the boon of Brahma ji, so  he said calmly that Hiranyaksha you are a great warrior . Therefore, there is no strength in any of the three worlds apart from Lord Vishnu that he can fight with you, so you go to him only, he can calm your longing for war.
 After hearing Varuna, Hiranyaksha went to Devarshi Narada and asked where to find Narayana. Devarshi Narada also told Narayana's address and said that O demon king Narayan has taken the form of Varah at this time to remove the earth from the abyss.
Now knowing the address of Narayan, Hiranyaksha also reached the abyss, where he saw Varaha God carrying the earth on his molar. Then that ungodly monster said to Lord Varah, "Hey, wild foolish animal, where are you taking this earth, Brahma Ji has given this earth to us, you lowly animal, you cannot take the earth from here.  You are enemy of demons and monsters , so today you will not be survive  by my hands.
He sometimes called God shameless, sometimes a coward, sometimes cheater, but Lord Varaha smilingly took the earth out of the abyss and set it on top of the sea, while the demon Hiranyaksha was continue uttering abuses to Lord Varaha. Then God said that the  you foolish demon would only say that war would also happen. Hearing this, Hiranyaksha attacked on Lord Vishnu. A fierce war broke out between Lord Varaha and Hiranyaksha. The demon attacked the god with gada(mace )trident and all kinds of divine weapons, using his maya (illusion), sometimes he used to make bones rain, and sometimes the rain of blood , sometimes he would disappear and sometimes he would be appear .
But Lord Vishnu was not distracted, he had destroy all the maya(illusion) of that demon. When Lord Vishnu kept hoaxing that demon for a long time, he kicked one of the demon's face with a strong kick, which caused his eyes to come out and that he was become poweless and fall on Earth like a mountain .After that Lord Varah killed him. As soon as he conquered Hiranyaksha, Lord Varah made a loud roar that caused the three world to tremble.
Happy with the slaughter of Hiranyaksha, all the Gods and Goddesses started showering flowers on Lord Varaha.
This was the story of Varaha Avatar.  There is a description somewhere that Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakashipu were powerful from birth itself.  Both did not do penance of Brahma ji, but after the slaughter of Hiranyaksha, Hiranyakashipu obtained a boon by doing penance of Brahma.  Somewhere there are also descriptions that Hiranyaksha himself hid the earth in the sea so that the creation work is obstructed.  Well, whatever the reason, whenever I will write the story of Varaha Avatar and Narasimha Avatar, I will try to clarify these points.

"Rishyamuk Parvat" This is the same mountain where Vanararaj Bali was also afraid to go, and when Bali became thirsty for the blood of his brother Sugriva, then Sugriva made this Rishyamuk mountain his residence.
Because Sugriva knew that when Vanararaj Bali and the demon Dudumbhi fought, Bali killed Dudumbhi and threw away one yojan(approx 12-15 KM) to his body, and a few sprinkles of blood of dead Dudumbhi flying in the air fell into the ashram of the Matang Rishi, who was located on the Rishyamuk mountain .           
So the sage Matang came to know from Tapobal that this sin was done by Bali, then he cursed Bali that if Baali will come in the one yojan area of ​​Rishiymuk mountain in future, then his death is certain . So Bali got to scared after hearing the name Rishyamuk mountain.

How was Rishyamuk mountain get named Rishyamuk: -

In Tretayuga, there used to be a giant monkey named Rikshiraj on Rishyamuk mountain, once someone asked him "O Rikshiraj how this mountain was named Rishyamuk mountain.
Riskhraja then said, Ravana, after receiving a boon from Brahmaji, started creating a ruckus on the earth, and began to obstruct the yajna-havan of the sages, so many sages persecuted by him formed a group, and mute on this mountain. Muk (Silently) started opposing Ravana.
During this time, when Ravana was going from there for the purpose of conquering the world, he saw that millions of sages were gathered on that mountain, so when Ravana asked his minister, why are so many Mahatma Rishi gathered here.  So the minister said that "O Raksharaj (Demon king), all these sages have gathered here to stay Muk (silent) to oppose you. Hearing this, Ravana got very angry and angry Ravan ordered to kill all the sages. 
After getting the orders of Ravana, all the demons attacked on those sages, the bones and remains of those sages became this mountain.

Story of curses(PART-08)

Story of curses(PART-08)

Once again I am present in front of you with interesting stories of the curse series.  Thank you very much to people who come to my blog and make me respect, increase my spirits. Enjoy the eighth part of the curse series with them and understand the vastness and depth of Sanatan culture. And also share on social media  So that more and more people have knowledge of it.At the end of the article, all of you will get the seventh part link.

55 . Brahma ji and king Daksha cursed to Narad ji.

When Lord Brahma was creating the universe, he had four sons.  They set out for penance.  After this came the turn of Narada Muni.  Narada was fickle by nature.
Narada, who pronounced the Narayan-Narayan all times own mouth, he was get cursed to remain unmarried.  According to the Puranas and scriptures, Devarashi Narada, who is called the messenger of Devaloka, is one of the seven Manas sons of Brahma.  Narada, one of the exclusive devotees of Lord Vishnu, used to transmit information while circling from one world to another.

Today I am telling you that although Narada Muni was fall in love many times but still did not marry anyone, the reason was the he got curse by his father, he was being unmarried in whole life.  A story is mentioned in the Brahmavaivarta Purana, Brahmakhanda, in which Narada got the curse of his father Brahma to remain unmarried for a lifetime.
 According to the story when Brahma said to Narada Muni, 'You help me in the creation of the universe and get married.  He refused his father.  Brahma became very angry on hearing his disregard.  He cursed Narada to remain unmarried for a lifetime and said, "You will experience love many times in your life, but you will never be able to get married even if you want to."  You run from responsibilities, so you only have to run around the world.  In this way Narada got cursed and he wandered from one world to another for ages.

King Daksha also gave curse to Narada ji to keep wandering.

 Because of another curse, Narada ji always had to wander around.  It is said that Asakti, the wife of King Daksha, gave birth to 10 thousand sons.  Narada Ji taught salvation to all the sons, due to which all of them mind was overcome by fascination. Daksha then married Panchajani and had a thousand sons.  Narada also taught these sons to stay away from fascination.  Enraged by this, Daksha cursed Narada ji that he would always wander around.

56 . King Daksha cursed to chandradeva.

 It is said that human beings should behave very thoughtfully.  Even a mistake done by him can invite a big disaster.  A similar story is also found in 'Shivpuran', in which Chandradeva was got curse due to his conduct.
According to the story of Shiva Purana, in ancient times, King Daksha married 27 of his daughters including Ashwini to Chandradeva.  Chandradeva was very happy as the husband of 27 girls.  Girls were also very happy to get Chandradeva as a groom.  But this happiness could not last long.  Because after a few days Chandradeva became more fascinated on one of them Rohini.
When King Daksha came to know about this, he went to explain to the Chandradeva.  Chandradeva listened to him, but after a few days, his attachment to Rohini again intensified.  When King Daksha came to know about this again, he went to the Chandradeva in anger.  He said that 'I have already explained you.  But it seems that my words had no effect on you, so I curse you that you will be suffering from tuberculosis. '
Soon after this curse of King Daksha, the Chandradeva became clouded by tuberculosis.  His light kept on going.  Sage Muni was very upset after seeing this.  After this, all the sages went to the shelter of Lord Brahma along with the sage and deity Indra.  Brahma Ji told him a solution.  According to the remedy, the Chandradeva had to meditate on Lord Shiva in Somnath and then according to Brahma, after Lord Shiva appeared he could be free from the curse of Daksha.
Chandradeva followed the order suggested by Brahma.  He continued to do hard penance for Shiva for six months.  Lord Shiva was pleased to see the harsh austerity of the Chandradeva.  Lord Shiva appeared to the Chandradeva and told to ask for the boon. Chandradeva asked the boon to say, 'O God, if you are happy with me, then give me freedom from this tuberculosis and forgive all my crimes'.  Lord Shiva said that 'the curse that has given you is also not an ordinary person.
But I will try my best to find the middle path of this curse. ”Shiva while taking out the middle path of this curse, says to the Chandradeva,“ There are two paksha in a month, one paksha of it will keep you growing. But on the other paksha you will also be weak. That means your light will be reduced.  This mythological mystery is the Shukla and Krishna Paksha of the Moon in which they grow in one side and they decrease in the other.

57 . Nandi cursed to Daksha and Brahmins.

According to the legend of Shiva Purana, once Sati's father Daksha organized a special religious program.  Mahadev was also invited in it, but he did not bow down to Daksha because of following the dignity of being God himself.  Daksha felt bad about this.  And Daksha said that not only being God, but being his son-in-law, Bholenath should have also bowed down.
Angered by this, Daksha cursed Shiva Shankar and said that he would never get any part in any yagya.  Angered by the curse on Shiva Bhole, Nandi cursed Daksha for wearing a goat-like body and being proud and humiliated throughout his life.
And Nandi cursed all the Brahmins present in the religious event as well and said that all these scholars, even though they are pundits and learned, should become knowledgeless in their old age and poor and poor will live their lives.  And these scholars will have to go begging from house to house of all castes for their livelihood.


Shani Dev is the son of Surya and Chhaya.  His vision is frightening. Such vision of Shanidev is due to a curse he received.  In today's article , I will tell you about the terrible curses got received by Shanidev. In astrology, Shani Dev has its own importance and it is said that if Shani Dev becomes happy on someone, then he crosses the life journey . It is said in the scriptures that Shani Dev walks with a limp, due to which his speed of movement is much slower than the rest of the planets and it takes him two and a half years to go from one zodiac to the next. But do you know how Shani Dev was lame?  If not, today I am saying to you the story of Shani Dev being lame, so let us know the story of Shani Dev being lame.

58 . Shanideva's wife cursed to Shanideva.

Shanidev had two marriages.  The first wife was named Neelima and the second wife was Manda.
Manda is also called Dhamini.  Manda was the daughter of Chitraratha.  Shanidev was a devotee of Krishna.  He was once absorbed in the meditation of Lord Krishna.  Then his second wife, Dhamini, came before him with a desire to have a son.  But Shani, engrossed in meditation, did not pay attention to her and remained engrossed in praise.  She kept waiting for a long time but Shani did not answer. Then Manda got angry and cursed Shanidev that whatever he looks at will be destroyed.  When Shanidev realized that he had made a big mistake.  By then it was too late.  Since then, Shanidev only looks at those who have to punish them for their sins.

59 . Maa Parvati cursed to Shanideva.

Whenever we know about our life through horoscope.  It is often seen that all the planets change the zodiac at a rapid speed, but the motion of Saturn is very slow.  Even Saturn stays in the same zodiac for years.  The cause of this slow motion of Shani is nothing but the curse given by  maa Parvati .
Once Shanidev reached Mount Kailash. He had his eyesight down. Mother Parvati asked him the reason for this. Then he said that anyone could be hurt a lot by his eyesight.  Hearing this, Mother Parvati began to ridicule him and called her son Ganesh there.
As soon as the sight of Shani fell on Ganesha, his head broke from the torso.  Then in anger, Parvati cursed that he would become devoid of limbs.
Due to this curse, Saturn became lame and his movement slowed down.  When Parvati ji's anger subsided, she could not take back her curse, but to atone it, she gave a boon to Shani that he would be the king of all the planets.

60 . Shanideva's stepmother cursed to Shanideva. 

Shani Dev was cursed by stepmother, due to which he became lame.  Actually, this story describes Shani Dev's father Surya Dev and mother Sangya Devi.
According to the legend, the heat of Surya Dev was not able to bear his wife  Sangya Devi, due to which he prepared an image similar to his body and named it Swarna.
Sangya ordered Swarna to serve the suryadeva in my absence and get wife happiness.  After giving this order to Swarna, she went to her father's house.
Surya deva was not able to recognize Swarna as the Sangya , meanwhile Swarna had five sons and two daughters from Suryadev. Swarna used to take care of her children but started ignoring the children of noun.  Then one day the boy, son of Sangya, Shani was hungry, so he asked his mother for food.
Then Swarna said, now you stay for a while, first I will offer food to God, feed your younger siblings and then give you food. Hearing this,  Shanideva got angry and he raised his leg to kick the food, then Swarna cursed the boy Shani that your leg may break now.
Due to fearing of curse, Shani went to his father Surya Dev and narrated the whole story.
Then the Suryadeva understood that no mother could curse her child like this.  Then Suryadeva became suspicious and he got angry and asked, "Who are you?"
Swarna was terrified after seeing the surya's face and revealed all the truth of the Sangya.  Then the Suryadeva told the boy Shani that Swarna is not your mother but she is a mother's model, so her curse will not go in vain but it will not be so harsh.
This means that your leg will not be broken by curse, but you will walk with a lame life.  It is said that from then till today Shani Dev walks only after limping and this is also the reason for his slowing movement .

61  . Pipalad rishi cursed to Shanideva.

Pipalad rishi was the supreme ascetic and learned sage of the Vedic Sanatan period.  Piplad was born under the Peepal tree, consumed the leaves of the Peepal as a food and under the Peepal underwent severe penance, which earned him the name Piplad.  Rishi Piplad ji is also considered as an incarnation of Lord Shiva, due to which he received a place of worship.
There are some stories in relation to Pippaladji, according to one of which when there was a famine in Tretayug at one time, then Kaushik Muni left the house with his family and left to take care of the family elsewhere. But being unable to follow the child, he goes away leaving his son in the middle of the journey under the Peepal tree.
When that child wakes up from sleep, he does not find his parents there and starts crying.  After a while, he starts to feel hunger and thirst, then he sees the peepal leaves lying near him, distraught with hunger, the child calms his hunger with those leaves and quenches his thirst by drinking the water of a pond situated nearby.  That child likewise, after taking leaves and water every day, is engaged in the meditation of God.

Once there Devarshi Narada ji approaches that child and in the opposite condition too, affected by the humble spirit of the child, completes all the appropriate rites of that child and gives them knowledge of Vedas and Puranas.  He asks the child to do devotion to Lord Vishnu, so that child would regularly do devotion to Lord Vishnu and be absorbed in meditation, pleased with the devotion of that child, Lord Vishnu appears in front of him and gives that child yoga and gyaan.  He teaches that child becomes a Maharshi.
After the passage of time, the child asks about the causes of his sorrows due to curiosity.  He asks Narada Muni ji that why he had to suffer so many sorrows and separation from parents at such a young age, why I have to suffer so much.
Hearing the questions of that child, Narada tells them that Shani is the cause of your sufferings due to which you have to suffer many problems, Piplad gets angry after listening to the statement of Narada Muni and curses Shani Dev, due to which Shanideva fall sky into the mountain on Earth, causing one of his feet to hurt.
Seeing such plight of Shani, Brahmadev, along with other devas, approaches Piplad and pacifies his anger.  He tells them that there is no fault of Shani in this, he only gives results to the person according to his deeds, so you place the dashed Shanideva in his place and Piplada muni follow the orders of Brahmadev.
 Another legend has also been associated with Piplad Muni in which Piplad has been called the son of Maharishi Dadhichi.  Maharishi Dadhichi had donated his bones to the gods for the slaughter of the demons of Vritrasura and when his wife Suvracha started going to the pyre to become Sati with her husband,  then is there a voice in the sky that Maharishi Dadhichi has the glory in your womb, which is the incarnation of Lord Shiva. Listening to Akashvani, Suvracha postpones her wish for some time and after the birth of a son, leaving her under a Peepal tree, she becomes Sati.  Animals and birds nurtured this baby and Som taught him all the genres.
As he grew up, he came to know that his parents had to face death due to the cruelity of Shani.  Enraged by this, Piplad meditated by sitting under the Peepal tree to please Brahma Ji.
Pleased with this, when Brahma Ji asked him to ask for the boon, Piplad asked for the Brahmand and hit Shanideva with brahamdand, when Shanideva sat on the Peepal tree .  This broke Shani's feet.  Shani Dev became unhappy and started calling Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva came and pacified the wrath of Pippalad and protected Shani.
There is another story of Shanideva walking limp, although its does not mention curses. However, it is necessary to have knowledge of the story.  The history of Shanidev's walking limp is also associated with Ravana's anger as well as the short age of his son Meghnath.
Ravana was a great scholar of astrology.  Ravana wanted his son to have longevity and no deity god could take his life.  So when Ravana's wife Mandodari was pregnent , Ravana wished that his future son should be born in such planetary constellations so that he would become super-powerful, skilled warrior and stunning.
It is due to this desire that Ravana ordered all the planets to be in auspicious and best position at the time of Meghnath's birth.  Because all the planets were very afraid of Ravana, so at that time all the planets except Shani Dev had sat in auspicious and high position as per Ravana's will.  Only Shanidev was the only planet who was not afraid of Ravana at all.
Ravana knew that Shanideva protects the age, but he also knew that Shanideva would not be easily auspicious by obeying him.  Therefore, Ravana, using his force, also kept Shanideva in such a position, that the life of his future son could be increased.

But Shani is the god of justice, so Shanidev may have been in the position of Ravana desire, but he tilled his sight during the birth of Meghnad, due to which Meghnad became shortage.  Ravana became very angry with this act of Shani and Ravana, in a fit of anger, hit Shani's feet with his gada.  Since then Shani Dev walks with a limp.  And that's why they move slowly.

11.Brahma was fascinated by his daughter, Shiva gave terrible curse.

 Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh are worshiped as the creators of the universe, these three gods are considered responsible for creating, preserving and destroying the entire creation. Lord Vishnu is known as the preserver of the world ,Brahma as the creator of the universe and Mahesh is known for the destroyer of the world when sin increases.  But do you know that Lord Brahma was cursed by Lord Shiva during the creation of the universe.  Lord Shiva could not tolerate a work done by him.
According to the story described in Shivmahapuran, when the time came to create the creation, the Tridevas divided their works.  Lord Brahma had the responsibility of creating mankind.

Someone's help was needed to create such a big creation.  That is why Brahma created a beautiful girl named Satyarupa, that girl was so beautiful that anyone would be fascinated by seeing her.  Her face was so glazing that even the greatest saints could not live without being attracted to her.
Seeing her beauty Brahma too became facinated by her.  For a moment they forgot everything and kept staring at Satyarupa. Sensing his vision, Lord Shiva did not take any time.  Shiva wanted to explain him.  But even before this, Brahma expressed his desire to marry Satyarupa in front of everyone.
Hearing such a disastrous thing from his mouth, all the gods present there were shocked.  On the other hand, Lord Shiva got angry.  He tried a lot to convince Brahma.  But they were not ready to accept. Shiva said, "O God, you have created this girl with your own hands, so this girl became your daughter." Satyarupa is your part.  You should not do such an indecent thing for your daughter '
Upon hearing this, Brahma was filled with anger.  He started uttering abuses to Lord Shiva.  Hearing this, Shiva's anger reached the climax and he cursed Brahma.  He said, 'You have insulted the father-daughter relationship by saying such a thing about your daughter.  Therefore you are not eligible to worship. From today your worship will be negligible.  Your devotees will remain nominal all over the world. Brahma apologized to all the gods including Shiva after hearing such bitter words from the mouth of Shiv.  But Shiva's curse showed his influence.  You must also have noticed that Brahma is worshiped less than other gods.  The only temple of Brahma is in Pushkar, Rajasthan.

12. Why Lord Shiva cursed Brahma and Ketaki flower?

Lord Shree Brahma Ji, Lord Shree Hari Vishnu and Lord Shree Mahesh (Mahadev the God of Gods) have been considered as the most revered in Hindu culture. Lord Shri Brahma Ji is considered to be the creator of the universe, Lord Shri Vishnu is the preserver of the universe and Lord Shri Mahesh is considered the destroyer.  In addition to all directions, the head looking above was also with Lord Brahma. After all, what happened to which god, who had cut off the head looking over Lord Brahma.  At the same time, why did Lord Shiva curse the adorable white Ketki flower(Pandanus flower )not to participate in the worship.  Let now I introduce you to these secrets today.
It is said that once in our revered Trinity, Lord Shri Brahma and Lord Vishnu Hari, there was a rush to consider themselves superior to each other.
Lord Shri Brahma Ji was calling himself superior as being the creator of the universe and Lord Shri Vishnu Ji was calling superior as being the preserver of the universe.
When there was no conclusion of this long-running dispute, then Lord Shiva was appeared there in the form of Shivalinga. Lord Shiva said to Lord Shree Brahma and Lord Shree Vishnu to find the end of Shivalinga.  Whoever finds its end first.  He will be considered the best.
Both Lord Shri Brahma and Lord Shri Vishnu set out in the opposite direction to find the ends.  Lord Shri Vishnu returned after some time not getting the ends. At the same time, Lord Shri Brahma Ji failed to find the end of Shivalinga and returned.  When Lord Shree Vishnu and Lord Shree Brahma came face to face with Lord Shiva as Shivalinga.
Then Lord Shri Vishnu Ji said that I tried a lot.  But I failed to find the end of Shivling.  But Lord Shri Brahma Ji told Lord Vishnu that I have found the end of Shivling. And the Ketki tree(pandanus tree) is a witness to this.  If you are not sure of this, then you should ask the Ketki tree itself.  Hearing this, the Ketaki tree gave its testimony in favor of Lord Shri Brahma.
Lord Shiva appeared in his real form upon hearing the false testimony of Ketaki tree.  Angry Lord Shankar cut off the 5th head of Lord Shri Brahma.
But Lord Shiva came to know everything and he cursed Brahma at the same time that after this, you will not be worshiped anywhere in this world and he said to the Ketaki flower that after now you will  not be offered to any god-goddess.
At the same time cursed the tree of Ketaki that the flowers produced from its tree will never be acceptable at the time of worship of Shivling.  If one will offer ketaki flower on the lingam.  So all his worthy will end.  Be aware that at the time of worshiping on Shivalinga we mainly offer white flowers.  But Lord Shiva is not worshiped with the white flowers of Ketaki.

13. A apsara (nymph) of heaven cursed Brahmadev.

The physique of Jagatpita Brahmaji was radiant and adorable.  Seeing his enchanting form, the heaven's Apsara Mohini became kamasakta and she sat in a trance sitting near Brahma ji.  When Brahmaji's sleep broke, he asked Mohini, Devi!  Why are you renouncing heaven and sitting near me?
Mohini said, 'O Brahmadev!  My body and mind are falling in love with you.  Please accept my love. '
 Brahmaji started giving him moral knowledge to remove Mohini's desire , but Mohini began to seduce him with erotic ways to dissuade Brahmaji.  Brahmaji started remembering his favored Srihari to avoid his illusion.
At the same time, the Saptarishis arrived in Brahmaloka.  Seeing Mohini near Brahmaji, the Saptarishis asked them, why is this beautiful Apsara sitting with you?  Brahma Ji said, 'This Apsara was tired of dancing and is sitting near me with a daughter's spirit to relax.
The Saptarishis knew the false language of Brahmaji with their yogashakti and smiled and departed from there.  Mohini got very angry on hearing such a statement of Brahma.
Mohini said, I wanted you to fulfill my kama desires and you gave me daughter status.  There is great pride of being restrained on your mind, only then you have rejected my love.  If I truly love you, then you will not be worshiped in the world.

14.  Why did Mata Savitri curse Lord Brahmadev?

There is a legend behind this curse.  According to the Padma Purana, a demon named Vajranash kept a lot of trouble on this earth.  To save the earth from the demon Vajranash, Lord Brahmadev killed him.
But while slaughtering the lotus flower fell from Brahmadev's hands. The place where this flower fell is called Pushkar. Pushkar is located in Ajmer district of Rajasthan.
After this incident, Lord Brahmadev decided to perform a yagna at this place for the good of the world.  Brahmadev reached Pushkar at the appointed time to perform the yajna, but Brahmadev's wife Savitri could not reach on time.
The auspicious time of yajna was being spent and it was necessary for a wife to complete the yagna.  Then Brahmaji married a local girl and started the yagna. Meanwhile,  Savitri the wife of Brahmaji reached  Yagya and became angry to see that another woman was sitting in her place.  Due to anger, Mother Savitri cursed Brahmaji that there will be no temple in this world nor will anyone worship you.

15. Narada ji cursed Brahma.

In the work of creation of Brahma's creation, first of all, four Kumar appeared in the mind of Brahma, who seemed to be of five years of age and was adorabled by Brahmatej.
The first was the Sanak, the second Sanandan, the third Sanatan and the fourth Sanatkumar.  After this, from the mouth of Brahma, attractive male like the gold, was born as the seed of the Kshatriyas, Swayambhu Manu and his wife Shatrupa.
After the birth of sons, Brahma ji asked them to create the creation, but the son of Brahma went to austerity due to extremely spiritual soul.  This caused great anger to Jagatpati Brahma and the enraged Brahmadeva started burning in Brahmatej. After this, Brahma gave birth to the Saptrishris. Later, he gave birth to Narada from the throat. Brahma ordered all his sons to help the universe.

On this Narada ji said, "First of all, you call the own eldest sons  Sanak,Skandan, Santkuar etc. and get them married and after that you should ask us to do so. When our eldest brother is doing penance, why are you putting us in bondage with the world?  You have given some sons more penance than nectar and you are giving us even the odd enjoyment of poison.  Who fool left devotion of God, will focus on destructive subjects.
Brahma ji got filled with rage after listening to Narada.  His face turned red and all the organs started shivering.  Then very angry, Brahma cursed Narada and said, O Narada!  My curse will erase your knowledge. After this, you becoming dasiputra in the birth by vaishno devotion, after getting kindness from God, you will become my son again.  At that time, I will give you divine and ancient knowledge.  But this time you disappear from my eyes and go into the world .
Narada said ! Stop your anger, you are the master of ascetics. You are creator of universe.  Your anger has been unprovoked on me.  The scholar man should punish or abandon his misguided son.
But how can you curse your ascetic son as you are pandit ?  Why not be the son of Jagatsrishta, if he does not have devotion in the feet of Lord Shrihari, then he is more sinny man. You have cursed me without any offense. If I curse you, it will not be unfair.
Saying this, Narada Ji said - My curse will surely erase all your mantras including your kawach, stotra and worship in the whole world.  Until the three kalpas pass away, you will neglisible in the three worlds.
Your yajna part will stop at this time.  You will not be worshiped even during the fast. You  will only worship by the gods ,After three kalpas, you will also be worshiped by worshipers.
In this way, due to the curse of Narada, the worship source of Brahma was omitted and the worship of Brahma ie fast, yajna etc. were stopped.

16. Brahmaji cursed Kamdeva.

Once upon a time, Jagatpita Brahma was in his assembly that suddenly a very beautiful beauty was born from his heart.  Before the Jagatpita Brahma could understand anything, in this sequence, an incredibly beautiful young man appeared from his heart, with a bow in his hand and arrows loaded with flowers in the quiver.
This young man had amazing power with which he could generate feelings of love and kama with his arrows within any living being.
After origin, the young man asked his creator , Brahma, to give orders.  Impressed by his attraction, Jagatpita Brahma ordered the young man to cast all creatures in the love trap with the power of his arrows.  With this order, the Jagatpita also said that not all living beings, even the deities, cannot escape the attack of this arrow.
Due to this power, this young man was also later known as Kamdev and Manmad.  In order to show his power, Kamadev took out an arrow loaded with flowers from his quiver and suddenly drove him to the court of Jagatpita Brahma.  Due to the attack of this arrow, every male present in the assembly was fascinated at the beauty of Sundari born before Kamadeva and started looking at him.
When the interpretation of this humiliating scene reached Lord Shiva by Dharma, he himself appeared in the assembly of Jagatpita Brahma and severely reprimanded Jagatpita Brahma.
Jagatapita Brahma felt humiliated when he was reprimanded by Lord Shiva.  It was the agony of that humiliation that Jagatpita Brahma considered Kamadeva to be guilty for this whole incident and cursed him to be burned to ashes by Lord Shiva's third eye.  Kamadeva himself was surprised when such a curse was received by Jagatapita Brahma.
On this, Kamadeva prayed to Lord Shiva that he himself had fulfilled his duty by following the order of Jagatpita Brahma.  Though Kamadeva's statement had some merit, Jagatapita Brahma argued that his empowerment as Kamadeva was not meant to create scenes of sexuality or obscenity. Therefore, Kamadeva was required to work within the realm of discipline, restraint and humility.  However, Jagadpita Brahma said that Lord Shiva himself will come out with an accurate solution when the time comes.

17.  Lord Brahma cursed Mother Ganga.

In the Ikshvaku dynasty, there were many popular king.  Mahabhisha was one of them.  While obeying the people, Mahabhisha performed many Ashwamedha and Rajsuya Yajna and became eligible of heaven by receiving  the post of Rajarshi. Indra used to give him special respect.  Once, in Indra's heaven singing program was going on. Then Brahmaji entered heaven with some work. The deities and all the rajrishis including the Mahabhishas were present in the service with Brahmaji receiving and welcoming.  Then Goddess Gangaji also arrived there.  Along with Ganga, Pawan Dev was also present.  When Pawan Dev got up to bow down to Brahmaji, because of his flow, Ganga ji's clothes in white robes moved slightly from the body.
Her stole fell down.  Seeing this, all the gods and rajrishis lowered their eyes, but the great sage Mahabhisha kept staring at the beauty of Ganga.
 Ganga was also familiar with the popularity of Mahabhisha.  She also stared at him unnaturally.  They too did not notice that their clothes have become messy.
Brahmaji felt very sad due to this indecent behavior of Mahabhish.  Brahmaji said- Rajarshi Mahabhishh you are schloar, also a saintly soul, but right now you need to be a little more efficient.  You have not yet become worthy of the dignity of heaven. For today's rudeness, you will have to go to the earth again.  Renounce heaven and take birth as a human being and suffer the sufferings of death. Brahmaji was also furious over the behavior of Ganga.  He also cursed Ganga - you are a goddess, you also had to take care of dignity.  Due to this rudeness, you too have to conceive like mortals and have children.  Mourn on your child diffculties.
Mahabhish started apologizing.  Indra also requested Brahmaji to have mercy.  Brahmaji said - I will not be return cursed, but I will arrange for his path of salvation. Due to Goddess Ganga, Mahabhisha will do something unpleasant for you, which will hurt you a lot.  When you rage on the Goddess, then this curse will be liberated.
Accepting Brahmaji's curse, Mahabhishh begged him to make him son of Purvanshi King Pratipa in the earth.  Brahma accepted this wish.
 After meeting Brahma, Goddess Ganga started to return, and on the way she met the Vasus.  Brahmaputra Maharishi Vasistha had cursed the Vasus to take birth on the earth due to attempting to steal cow.

On the apology by Vasus, Vashistha had said that all the eight Vasus will take birth from Ganga's womb.  Ganga will cursefree seven with birth, but the eighth Vasu will not be easily released.
 Vasus pleaded with Gangaji that Vashishtha's curse is weakening his power, so that he should soon give birth from her womb and save them.
Ganga accepted  to give liberation as soon as they were born, in exchange of which the eight Vasus vowed to take birth as sons in her womb on the earth .
King Pratip was childless.  He started austerities at the entrance of the Ganges to get children.  He wanted Ganga to be born in his house.  Ganga appeared pleased with the tenacity.
 Ganga told the king that she could not come as a child.  Pratip told Ganga that if you are unable to appear as a child, then promise to become the wife of my future son.  It will also fulfill my wish.  Ganga accepted.
 Goddess Ganga told Pratipa the method of obtaining a son.  Pratip followed him and started doing intense penance.  Due to the effects of asceticism, he received a son.
Mahabhisha was born as Shantanu, Pratip's son, on the orders of Brahmaji.  Shantanu was stunning.  When Shantanu was young, Pratip handed him the kingdom and went himself to the forest for penance.
 Once Shantanu went hunting in the forest and, distraught with thirst, reached the Ganges.  On the banks of the river, he was fascinated when he saw a woman who looked like Lakshmi in beauty.
She was Ganga herself.  Shantanu proposed marriage to her.  While fulfilling the promise given to Prateik, Ganga said - I accept your marriage purposal but you have to promise that you will not object to any of my decisions.  Otherwise I will abandon you.
 Shantanu got married by promising Ganga and came to Shantanu's palace.  Eight sons of Shantanu from Ganga's womb, who were cursed Vasus, whom Ganga had promised to release.
Ganga threw seven sons into the river as soon as they were born.  Shantanu had promised that he would not object to any decision of Ganga, therefore, he could not speak anything.
 When Ganga started taking the eighth son to the river for shedding, Shantanu was furious with Ganga and prevented her from doing so.
 On hearing this, Ganga said to King Shantanu - Maharaj, you have broken your vow today.  According to my condition, I sacrifice you today.
In this way, Mahabhisha was freed from the curse of Brahma.  Ganga disappeared with her son.  Shantanu spent many years in brahmacharya .
 Then he expressed his desire to see his son from Ganga one day.  Ganga appeared with that child and said- This is your son Devavrata.  Take it along with  he being brave, he will also be a scholar.  In the war skill, it will be like Parashurama.
 Shantanu came to his palace with Devavrata.  Devavrata was the eighth Vasu whom Vasistha had not cursed.

18. Kashyap Rishi gave curse to Shiva:

It is said that man's present is based on his past deeds and future is based on present deeds.  But this applies not only to humans but also to Gods.  There are many such stories in our Puranas when due to some actions done by God in the past, they had to suffer in times to come.  One such story is related to Lord Shankar when he had to cut the head of his own son Ganesh due to the curse given to him by Kashyap rishi.
Goddess Parvati once created a child from the cosmetic rouge of her body due to an error in obeying by Nandi and put his life in it and said that you are my son.  You follow my orders and no one else.  Goddess Parvati also said that I am going for a bath.  Nobody should come in.  After a while Lord Shankar came there and started going to the room of Goddess Parvati.
Seeing this, the boy modestly tried to stop them.  Seeing the stubbornness of the child, Lord Shankar became angry and cut off the head of the child with his trident.  When Goddess Parvati saw this, she became very angry.  The fire of her anger created an outcry in the creation.  Then all the gods together praised her and asked Shiva to revive the child.
Then at the behest of Lord Shankar, Vishnu brought an elephant's head cut off and he put that head on the boy's torso and brought it to life.  Then Lord Shankar and other gods gave many blessings to that gajmukh child.  Gods gave him many names like Ganesha, Ganapati, Vinayaka, Vighnaharta, Pratham Pujya etc. and praised the child.  In this way Lord Ganesha was revealed.
According to Brahmavaivartpurana, once Narada ji asked Shri Narayana that Lord you are great schloar and know all Vedas.  I want to know from you that Lord Shankar is considered to be the one to remove all problems.  Why did he cut the forehead of his son Ganesha.
Hearing this, Srinarayan said that Narada is a matter of time.  Shankar strikes the trident in great anger at Surya who killed Mali and Sumali.  Surya was as stunning and powerful as Shiva.  So the Surya's consciousness was destroyed by the trident injury.  He immediately fell down from the chariot.
When Kashyapji saw that my son was in a dying state.  Then they began to mourn by bashing him by the chest.  At that time there was an outcry among all the gods.  All of them started crying loudly in fear.  Darkness engulfed the whole world.  Then the ascetic Kashyap ji, grandson of Brahma, cursed Shiva ji.  The same will be true for your son.  Your son's forehead will be cut off.
Hearing this, Bholenath's anger subsided.  He revived the Sun.  Surya stood in front of Kashyap ji.  When he came to know about the curse of Kashyap ji, he decided to sacrifice everyone.  Hearing this, Lord Brahma approached the Sun with the inspiration of the Gods and appointed him to his work. Brahma, Shiva and Kashyapa happily blessed the Sun and went to their respective areas.  Here Surya also mounted on his zodiac sign.  Mali and Sumali then became white leprosy, destroying their influence.  Then Brahma himself said to both of them - The power of both of you is over with the wrath of the sun.  Your body is damaged.  You worship the sun.  Both of them started worshiping Surya and became healthy again.

19. Mother Parvati cursed Samudradev.

Shiva Purana is considered very special in Hinduism.  At the same time it is described in the scriptures that according to mythological beliefs, when the seas were built by the sons of Maharaja Prithu, the seven seas were of liquids like sweet and milk.  But presently all the sea around the world are all saltwater.  After all, why the sea water is salty, there is a mythological story behind it. Let us know about this story ....
According to Shiva Purana once Goddess Mata Parvati was doing severe penance to get Shiva.  The intensity of her penance was so great that the throne of the gods sitting in the heavens began to shake.  This made the gods afraid.  When all the gods were trying to solve this problem, the sea god was fascinated by seeing the beauty of Goddess Parvati.
When Mata Parvati's penance was complete, Samudra Dev expressed own desire to marry her.  In this regard, he also proposed marriage to Maa Parvati.  Hearing this, Mother Parvati told Samudra Dev that she loves Kailashapati Lord Shiva and has considered her as her husband .  When Samudra Dev heard this, he got angry.  He started saying abuse to Lord Shiva.  He exclaimed in anger, "What is there in that devouring tribal who is not in me, I quench the thirst of all humans, my character is white like milk. O Parvati! Accept my marriage proposal."

Mata Parvati did not bear it when she saw Bholenath being despised in front of her.  She got angry with Samudra Dev.  She cursed the Samudra dev and said, due to sweet water you feel proud will these water become salty.  Due to salt water, people will not be able to receive your water.  The sea water became salty due to that curse of Maa Parvati.  There is also a legend that when the Samudramanthan was formed, the sea water became salty due to the effect of churning.

20. Maharishi Durvasa cursed Devi Ganga.

It is believed that one day rishi Durvasa reached Brahmaloka.  Ganga was also live there in many years ago.  Maharishi Durvasa started bathing there, when a strong gust of wind came and his clothes flew off.  Seeing all this, the young Ganga standing nearby could not stop her laughter and laughed out loud.  In a fit of anger, Durvasa cursed Ganga that she would spend her life as a river on earth and people would take bathe in it to purify themselves.

That's it for today ... Soon I will appear before you again with further stories of this series.
