Lord krishna and lord shiva battle

Wow, There is an interesting incident registered in Puranas where Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva battle with each other.

On this post, we are posting the authentic information on the battle of Banasura. We request you to read the complete article for obvious reasons defined below.

This post helps you to understand the answer to few questions like?

  1. Why the battle of Banasura was necessary that time?
  2. What was its result?
  3. Introduction of Adishakti (Parashakti, Sadashiva) in contemporary form to the Shiva and Krishna.

Before getting started let's observe Shiva and Krishna in their respective dimension. For that, we need to understand about Adishakti (Parashakti and Sadashiva)

In Sanatan Dharma, there is a trinity which includes Brahma Vishnu and Maheshwara.

In which Brahma is the creator, Lord Vishnu is the supreme preserver and Mahesh is Shiva, the supreme destroyer.

Lord Vishnu emerged first from voidness. This voidness is Dark energy. Human science has a very little idea about dark energy.

They don't know much about that since it is beyond human consciousness.

Hence Lord Vishnu is unborn and believed that present everywhere, not just present in this universe but in the multiverse.

When we look to Vedas & Puranas, for example, Devi Puranas, Shiva Puranas, Rudra Sahita etc, Dark energy is Adishakti, Parashakti or Shivashakti

  1. The Dark Energy contains 74% of the universe
  2. Rest 22% is Dark matter
  3. just 4% is the matter.

Then Brahma appeared from Vishnu navel part through a comic lotus.

Adishakti told them that you both are my energies. You emerged on my will, I order you to take the responsibility of Brahma as creator and Vishnu as the supreme preserver.

On request of Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma, Adishakti (Parashakti, Sadashiv) further told them that he/she will take the physical form as Rudra.

Lastly, Rudra emerged as Shankar who is the physical form of shapeless Sadashiva/Adishakti

Out of the Trinity, Vishnu and Shiva is believed to be more influential in comparison to Lord Brahma.

Brahma once tried to trick Lord Vishnu hence Sadashiva forbade devotees to worship Brahma

Whereas comparing Lord Vishnu with Lord Shiva is highly unjustified. Both are one common flux of energy which works on their own dimension and they never interferes with each other task.

Vishnu and Shiva both are regarded to be one. Therefore Shiva is Vishnu Vallabha , means Lord Vishnu can't resist with Lord Shiva and Collectively known as HariHara
