Lord Shiva and his consort, Parvati, used to live on Mount Kailash. They meditated there and also they used to bless their devotees. They led a very happy and fruitful life.

One day Parvati made a special request to her consort, Shiva, to take her to a grove named Nandankanan.

“Definitely I will take you there,” promised Shiva. So they went together to that particular grove. All the trees in that grove were so beautiful. Parvati was extremely moved by their beauty. She asked her Lord, “Please tell me if there is any tree that is more special than the rest. When I look at them, they all...

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 second marriage of a god. In the Sanskrit tradition, Skanda is either an eternal brahmacārin (bachelor) or 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 more popular and more important of Murugan's two brides. Hence, I do regard the lovely myth of Murugan and Valli as an indigenous-autochthonous...

Lord Shiva is known as the destroyer of evil in Hindu mythology. He is a fearsome warrior and an elegant dancer. He is great. It is rumored that He lives on Mount Kailash, that He was never born; He exits since the birth of universe. His wife is Ma Parvati. Lord Shiva has a unique talent of dance, the Tandav, which can kill and so is called the Natraj. He has a third eye which is always closed but when He is enraged He opens them and whoever is before Him will burn down. Some ladies fast on particular days so that they can have husbands like Shiva. He has a great role in Ramayana too; as Hanuman. All I can say is Shiva is day Shiva is night. Shiva is you, Shiva is me. I bow to Lord Shiva.
