Please read The Previous Post of the series to know what happened previously, Now Prajapati daksh invites Shiva for a huge gathering. On the other side, Sage Narada helps Nandi by making him understand the real reason behind Shiva vairagya .

Why Prajapati Daksh invited Shiva?

As defined in the previous post - 'Why God Shiva is complete in himself' Prajapati Daksh decides to organize a huge gathering where he invites Shiva to join the summit.

Sage Kashyap takes responsibility on his shoulder to give an invitation to Shiva. Whereas Daksh had other dark plans for Shiva in his heart and for fulfilling of his evil plans he invites Shiva.

Afterward, Prajapati Daksh meets with his daughter Sati. Prajapati daksh questions Sati about the progress in preparation of spring season festival.

Sati tells her father that she is taking care of everything in preparation for spring season festival.

Prajapati Daksh observes that Sati is getting emaciated day by day while handling everything all alone so he decides to define some other responsibility to his son in law Chandra (Moon).

Daksh tells Chandra to handle major responsibility on behalf of him. Later on, Daksh orders his daughters to collect river water. He tells Sati to collect Saraswati river water.

Shiva Trident

On the Phenomenal Mount Kailash, Nandi sees that Shiva is not in his place so he searches for Shiva. He ends up with empty hands so he comes back to Shiva place and starts weeping. Shiva’s ghost and apparition see Nandi restless so they ask Nandi where is Shiva?

Nandi replies to them.
Nandi: “Shiva is not in Kailash. Once in a year during end of winter season, Shiva leaves Kailash without informing anyone and involves himself in meditation on cremation ground".

whom does Shiva meditate?

Apparition asks Nandi the reason behind Shiva isolation on a particular day but Nandi refuses to answer that question; he states that he is also in search of that answer.

Sage Narad enters to Kailash and calls out Nandi name. Nandi greets Sage Narad and raises the same question that “why for one day Shiva meditates on some unknown cremation ground in end of winter.” Narad tells to Nandi the whole story.

Lord Shiva Narad: “It is usually that for one day Shiva even forgets himself and meditates in the cremation ground. This cycle of meditation is known as Samadhi.”

Nandi asks another question “why Shiva goes to Samadhi on that particular day?” Nandi was eager to know the answer.

Narad: “Nandi please don’t be stressed it is common for Shiva to attain the Samadhi”. Nandi expresses his agony to Narad for seeking answers to his question.

Nandi: "Whenever Mahadev goes to the cremation grounds for Samadhi without informing anyone. That time was unbearable for me. I see Shiva as my father and living without the father is useless for me as a Son. please sage define the actual reason behind Shiva Samadhi during the end of winter season.”

Narad enlightens Nandi he states Narad: “ Nandi this Kailash is a holy place for me. I know that you have observed Shiva hidden pain and sorrow which Shiva never expresses in front of anyone but actual truth is that Shiva is in great grief. Shiva is dissected Nandi; Yes Nandi Shiva is dissected into two parts. It is the same day when on request of Brahma; Shiva dissected himself into two parts. ”

Nandi gets more impatient when he comes to know about Shiva dissection. With the tear in his eyes, Nandi asks Narad

Nandi: “What to do next sage? My Lord Shiva will never share his grief with us. Please tell me will ever my lord come out from his isolation. Shiva is so naive, he always look-after each one of us. My Lord needs someone who could take care of him when I am not there in Kailash.

Sages please tell me something; Why Shiva dissected himself? What's the story Sage please let me know. It is very important for me to know the actual truth. Did Shiva dissect himself for the creation of the world? Who was dissected from Shiva?”


Narad talks about Prajapati Daksh Daughter Sati

Narad sees tear drops in Nandi eyes so he tries to control Nandi but Nandi emotions were too strong to handle by Narad.
Narad: “Since you are asking me Nandi I will tell you that Shakti | Energy was dissected by Shiva for the creation of this world. Goddess Sati is an incarnation of Shakti who took birth as the daughter of Daksh to marry Shiva.

This is a long story, You need to know only one thing that Only Sati can take Shiva out from his Isolation. But due to bind on human body Goddess Sati is unaware of her divine morph.

Listen to me carefully Nandi even Lord Vishnu wants Shiva to come out from his Recluse. Nandi Mahadeva Shiva can’t bear anyone in trouble whenever anyone calls out his name with true devotion Shiva has to appear in mystic form to help them.

Nandi demi god Vasant is there in Prajapati Daksh kingdom he will become medium for Shiva and Sati union in coming time.”


Nandi tells to Narad that he is not being able to understand Narad hidden motive but Narad convinces Nandi that in coming time Shiva will come out of his Recluse.

Nandi hails sage Narad name and Narad takes leave from Kailash Parvat . In mean time Nandi sees Shiva viewing water stream when he reaches on the bank of the stream.

Nandi greets Shiva, he tells Shiva
Nandi - "Mount Kailasha is looking like cremation ground without you, my Lord".

Nandi decides to bring fresh fruits from the jungle for Shiva. Shiva reaches to his place and views the beauty of there. Nandi returns from the jungle. He brought some fresh fruits for Shiva but Shiva refuses. Shiva tells Nandi that today he is not willing to eat any fruit. So Nandi offers river water again; Shiva refuses to drink river water. Nandi decides to ask a question from Shiva.

Nandi - “My lord today you came so early from Samadhi.” Shiva looks at Nandi and asks him.
Shiva: “What is Samadhi for you Nandi? It is just a door which takes you to your identity; it is a jump from life to death; Journey from existence to end. But today Nandi I was restless in my meditation. This is the first time when few thoughts raised in mind. So I returned on Kailash.”

Nandi - “But oh Lord you are omniscient. You know everything, you are the Supreme.”

shiva Supreme

Shiva replies to Nandi Shiva - “whether you call me omniscient or Parmeshwara these are the names given by you and my devotees. But you are forgetting Nandi that being called omniscient which gives birth to highbrow. And if there is no highbrow in me then How could be I called omniscient. Nandi sometimes it is necessary to unknown something.”

Nandi gets the shine on his eyes he replies to Shiva
Nandi - “But my lord I know everything, why you isolate yourself for one day in the end of winters. Sage Narad told me all.”

Angry Shiva

Shiva gets angry on Narad, He shouts Nandi name.
Shiva - “Nandiiiiiiiii, Narad knows nothing; I don’t need anyone I am complete. I am Shiva, Time flux is inside me. I am the one who is not bounded in the wheel of karma and time. All three mode of time Future, Present, Past works on my wish. I am the Supreme Consciousness and I am the energy in your mind and in your body.”

Nandi apologized to Shiva on expressing his thoughts. On the other side, Sati reaches on the bank of Saraswati River. Narad too reaches in the same jungle; He sees Sati on the bank of river filling her water vessel. Narad plans to sing something for Sati so that she could know her reality of divine Consciousness.

In between his plan, Narad meets the music beat who is known from the name of Raga Ragini.

Little info
Raga is considered as the male melodic mode of Indian classical music and Ragini is considered as the female melodic mode of Indian classical music. There are various Raga and Ragni in traditional ancient classical music system.

Narad greets them and asks them where they are going, one of them tells Narad that Prajapati Daksh daughter Sati is organizing spring season festival and for delighting guests of the festival through melodious music we are going to attain the festival fun.

Narad decides to grab the opportunity to sing for raga and Ragni so that they could remove their tiredness by enjoying his music. Raga Ragni accepts the musical treat from him but Narad decides to sing off beat musical note so that he could have some more time to hold Sati on the bank of the river. Narad who is always busy in traveling from one realm to another takes his musical instrument and starts his musical beat.

Narad musical beat was so unpleasant it destroys the peace of the jungle. Raga Ragni feels unconscious even Sati on the bank of the river gets disturbed by such a horrible musical note. Narad sees that Raga and Ragni's are losing consciousness so he stops suddenly. One of the Raga tells Narad that we are going to die after hearing his offbeat note.

Narad realizes that unknowingly he did a horrible mistake which can be so devastating and the world will never forgive him for killing Raga and Ragni because if Raga and Ragini dies it will be the end of music. The world without music will be vapid. Narad gets down on his knees and fold his hands and prays to Shiva that unknowingly he did the huge mistake. He requests Shiva to bless life to Raga and Ragini.

Suddenly a cold breeze comes to that jungle and fog starts appearing in front of Narad. A huge shadow holding a trident in his right hand appears from the fog. Narad opens his eyes and sees Shiva standing in front of him. Narad request Shiva to bless the life of Raga and Ragni. Shiva sees Raga and Ragni Recumbency and takes walk to the nearer rock and sits in his posture as he sits on mount Kailash.

He takes his Damru (PELLET DRUM) his musical instrument and starts a musical beat. Just by vibration of his Damru animals of the jungle gets delighted, a small deer who was feeding himself leaves his green leaf and comes near to Shiva to hear the musical note, Shiva takes sitar in hand and starts singing. Consciousness of Raga Ragni comes back and they start dancing to the musical beat of Shiva.

Shiva takes high note and flowers start to blossom, birds stop chirping and sits on the tree to listen to the melodious music. As melody of music reaches the ears of Sati, she asks herself that who is behind such a musical note. Water vessel gets slipped from her hands and she gets mesmerized by the melody of music.

Unknowingly she starts walking towards the source of music and stops at viewing Shiva sitting on a rock top. Narad sees Sati viewing Shiva in his musical avatar this brings Narad to great joy. Internally in his heart he thanks Shiva for blessing Raga- Ragni life.

Meanwhile, Sati was giving continuous stare at Shiva. Suddenly she starts dancing on musical beats of Shiva and everyone gets delighted to see Sati dance on Shiva tune.

Shiva and sati

Shiva feels Sati presence around him and opens his eyes slowly - slowly. Shiva stops the music and sees in Sati eyes. She was starting Shiva as she was willing to listen to more musical note from Shiva. Both look each other but Shiva takes his eyes off from sati and holds the trident in his right hands and divine fog appears again and Shiva disappears from there leaving Sati mesmerized. Sati was not able to understand whatever just happened there.

How she came there by her own, and why Shiva stopped such beautiful and melodious music. She was curious to know the reason of Shiva disappearance.

Narad gives salutation to Sati and tells her that "Shiva is Shiva - There is no one like him in the whole cosmos. Shiva sings the betterment of the cosmos.

Today he came here to save the life of Raga and Ragni on my request." After that Sati greets Raga & ragni and takes them to her palace with river water in her another vessel for preparation of spring season. While going back she gives second look to the rock in which Shiva was sitting.
