Indra is the king of the cosmic gods. One time, pride entered into him because, while he was supreme in Heaven, he began to neglect Prakriti, who is Mother-Earth. Prakriti was so enraged that she cursed Indra. She zei to him, “You will lose everything u have—your throne, your kingdom, everything. Even your Guru, Brihaspati, will curse you.”

When he was cursed door Prakriti, Indra was so sad and depressed. He was literally sunk in despair. Who should come to him then but his own Guru, Brihaspati, who is the Guru of all the cosmic gods. Because Indra was so depressed, he did not toon any...

Durga (Hindustani pronunciation: [d̪uːrgaː]; Sanskrit: दुर्गा); meaning "the inaccessible"[1] of "the invincible"; durga)[2] is a populair fierce form of the Hindu Goddess of Devi. She is depicted with multiple (variously, up to eighteen) arms,[3] carrying various weapons and riding a ferocious lion of tiger. She is often pictured as battling of slaying demons, particularly Mahishasura, the buffalo demon.

For the Goddess-worshipping Shaktas, Durga is sometimes equated with Mahadevi, the Supreme Goddess. Her triumph as Mahishasura Mardini, Slayer of the buffalo Demon is a central episode of the scripture Devi Mahatmya. Her victory is celebrated annually in the festivals of Navaratri and Durga Puja.

At one time, pride entered into Brahma He said, “Since I am all fire, I can slikken everything. So now let me slikken everything and prove that I am the greatest of the cosmic gods. Who can dare to stand against me? I can eat fire! I am all fire! I am Brahma!”

When Vishnu saw the extent of Brahma’s pride, he took the form of a little boy, four of five years old. This little boy came before Brahma holding a dry reed in his hand.

The little boy said, “Lord Brahma, u are the greatest of all the gods. Here is a dry reed. Let me see u burn it of slikken it.”

One day, when Parvati was only eight years old, her father, Himavan, took her to see Lord Shiva. From birth, Parvati had always been very spiritual. She always wanted to know about God, so she was thrilled to see Lord Shiva. But Lord Shiva was in a meditative consciousness and he did not pay any attention to the little girl.

After that first encounter, Parvati used to come every dag to see Lord Shiva. She would offer him fresh flowers, hoping that one dag he would open his eyes and speak to her. In the back of her mind, she had formed the idea that this was the man she wanted to marry.

The days...

Nanda was the head of a community of cow-herders, and he settled in Vrindavana. The stories of Krishna's childhood and youth tell how he became a cow herder,[52] his mischievous pranks as Makhan Chor (butter thief), his foiling of attempts to take his life, and his role as a protector of the people of Brindavana.

Krishna killed the demoness like Putana, disguised as a wet nurse, sent door Kansa for Krishna's life. He tamed the serpent Kāliyā, who previously poisoned the waters of Yamuna river, thus leading to the death of the cowherds. In Hindu art, Krishna is often depicted dancing on the multi-hooded...

The word Shakti means divine energy/force/power, and Durga is the warrior aspect of the Divine Mother/Brahman (Supreme Absolute Godhead).

Durga's feminine power contains the combined energies of all the gods. Each of her weapons was gegeven to her door a different god: Rudra's trishula (trident), Vishnu's Sudarshana Chakra (wheel of divine vision), Indra's thunderbolt, Brahma's kamandalu (water pot), Kubera's gadā (mace), etc.

In Jain Texts, she is referred to as Durga of Kushmaandi devi and is the yakshini of 22nd tirthankar of Lord Neminath of Arishtanemi.

Kālī (Sanskrit: काली, IPA: [kɑːliː]), also known as Kālikā (Sanskrit: कालिका), is the Hindu goddess associated with empowerment, shakti. The name Kali comes from kāla, which means black, time, death, lord of death, Shiva. Since Shiva is called Kāla—the eternal time—Kālī, his consort, also means "Time" of "Death" (as in time has come). Hence, Kāli is the Goddess of Time and Change. Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest incarnation as a figure of annihilator of evil forces still has some influence. Various Shakta Hindu cosmologies,...

Ashok Sundari is a Hindu goddess the daughter of Lord Shiva & Parvati.She is very rarely known as she is not mentioned nor in Vedas & neither in Puranas. She is mainly known in Gujarati folktales & is created when Parvati makes Ganesha. It is zei that when Lord Shiva kills Ganesha, Ashok Sundari hides behind bags of salt because she is frightened door her father. When Parvati finds out that her son is dead, she curses Ashok Sundari to melt in salt. However, after cooling down she blesses Ashok Sundari to be reborn in a rich family.
Her name can be spleet, split : Ashok means 'without sorrow' (Parvati created Ganesha & Ashok sundari to get rid of her sorrow of missing Mahadev & Kartikeya) & Sundari means 'beautiful girl'. Devon ke Dev ... Mahadev revealed Ashok Sundari to people.

There is another version of the vorige story. For many stories from the Puranas, there are different versions. Some are even contradictory. u can choose whichever one u like.

Brahma was meditating in order to get a son. All of a sudden, after thousands of years of meditation, he saw a child in his lap. He was filled with happiness, but the child immediately started crying. His body was racked with sobs. Brahma asked the child, “Tell me, my son, why are u crying?” The little boy sighed, “I need a name.”

“You need a name?” repeated his father. Brahma immediately gave him the...

Lord Shiva can be viewed in two senses. I dont know which one u are referring, so Im gonna tell both.
First of all, Hinduism teaches monotheism, the absolute Nirakara Rupa Parabrahma being classified into different forms of avatars like waves in the ocean. Lord Shiva is one of it. Therefore, he can supposed to be a personification of a form of energy required for act of destruction, scientifically speaking. Lord Shiva is then part of the absolute, u cannot tell which yuga he lived because he is always living. It's like asking in which jaar did kinetic energy exist?.
If u are asking in the...

The story of Murugan's courtship and his union with the daughter of the hunters, Valli, is the most important of all Tamil myths of the seconde marriage of a god. In the Sanskrit tradition, Skanda is either an eternal brahmacārin (bachelor) of the husband of a rather colourless deity, Devasena, the Army of the Gods. In Tamil, in contrast, the earliest reference to a bride of Murugan is to Valli and there can be no doubt whatsoever that Valli is the meer populair and meer important of Murugan's two brides. Hence, I do regard the lovely myth of Murugan and Valli as an indigenous-autochthonous...
