How parvati won the heart of shiva?

How Parvati won the heart of Shiva is a beautiful story defining the true meaning of Love. It is the story of faith, devotion, and love.


In this post, we have shared how the goddess Parvati story won the heart of the Shiva? Let's get started the Love story of Shiva and Parvati.

After the unfortunate loss of Goddess Sati, Shiva Leaves Mount Kailash and moves towards the Northern Himalayas.

The kingdom of Himavan was snowing that time. After reaching the state of Himavan, Shiva views a mountain which had a darkened cave.

Shiva enters the cave whereas Bull Nandi sits outside the cave and wait for Shiva to come out of the penance.

Several years get the pass away. In the winter cave remains dark but in summers light manages to enter the cave.

Goddess Shakti decides to manifest herself as the daughter of Himavan.

With the grace of Goddess Shakti, The king Himavan, and queen Meenawati get blessed with a divine daughter.

Sage Narada names her Parvati. He further tells them that their daughter is not an ordinary daughter. Future of their daughter is attached to Mahadev.

In the future, Shiva will marry their daughter Parvati. The King asks many questions from the Narada.

  1. Does nobody know where is Shiva right now?
  2. Previously, Shiva was married to goddess Sati, but that marriage remained unsuccessful after the death of Goddess Sati. Now, will Shiva come out of his previous memories?
  3. Shiva is known for his Vairagya, Will he accept Himavan's daughter?

Nardana informs Himavan that Shiva is in their state, meditating in dark cave.

Secondly, their daughter Parvati is the incarnation of goddess Sati. Therefore Shiva will remain connected to your daughter Parvati.

Further, Narayan informs that Shiva is the Aradhya of the Narayan and Narayan is eager to see Shiva tying wedding knot with Parvati.

Himavan asks Narada that Shiva is Vairagi will Shiva ever come out of isolation.

Narada replies that Shiva will surely come out of his Vairagya to marry your daughter.

Time keeps passing goddess Parvati's reverence for Shiva keeps growing.

Narayan sends Sage Dadhichi to guide Parvati about Shiva's Charm, and She decides to Visit Shiva's Cave.

Shiva and Parvati

Sage informs Goddess Parvati that Shiva is in meditation and without Shiva's permission no one can enter into that cave.

Only your true reverence for Shiva will help you to enter the cave. Sage tells to Mother Parvati that on her journey; Rudraksha Beads and Bilva leaf will help her.

When Parvati reaches the cave entrance; she feels a certain kind of cosmic vibes within her.

Bilva leaf and Rudraksha beads get charged as soon they come in contact with Cosmic vibes of Parvati.

Parvati crosses physiological and psychological barriers to meet Lord Shiva as per advised by sage Dadhichi.

She steps in the cave and sees the Shadow of a sage sitting on padmasana, but the view was not clear for her.

The past Sati memories start emerging on her mind. She closes her eyes and sees Shiva grief after the death of Goddess Sati.

Few teardrops fall from her eyes, and she regains her past life memories of Shiva how Shiva was stopping her to not go for the Daksha Yagna.

One by one her past life mistakes come in front of her. She realizes when she was Daughter of King Daksha; she was a little bit of arrogant and naive.

How many times she treated Shiva with arrogance. She even ordered Shiva to attend Daksha Yagna.

Those memories hurt Parvati emotionally, Parvati starts feeling guilty for her past life innocence.

After that Parvati realizes how beautifully Shiva treated her every time in her past life.

Parvati gets her consciousness back and thinks the beautiful moments happened in between them. A sweet smile comes to goddess Parvati's face.

She opens her eyes and moves toward Shiva. Now the image of Shiva gets clear to her.

Shiva was sitting over a rock and meditating like the supreme Vairagi.

Aroma of the flowers was passing in the cave, and Goddess Parvati reaches more near to the Shiva.

Parvati's heart gets meltdown by viewing the Shiva in a deep penance.

She requests Shiva to open his eyes, but Shiva continues his meditation, ignoring the existence of Parvati.

Parvati gets overwhelmed and requests Shiva to forgive her past mistakes. She requests Shiva to open his eyes and look at her. She vows that she will not repeat her past life mistakes.

The king of the demigods Indra calls the deity of eroticism Kaamdev and KaamDev's wife, Rati.

Kamdev Bhasmam

Indra orders them to apply their arrow of eroticism on Shiva when Goddess Parvati is standing in front of Shiva.

On the other side, Parvati feels a cool breeze which was flying matted hairs of Shiva behind his shoulder.

Kaamdev and KaamDev's wife Rati also enters behind Parvati and aims their arrow towards Shiva.

They were sure that by hitting their erotic arrow on Shiva; Mahadev will surely look at goddess Parvati.

A pair of arrows hit Shiva's forehead; Shiva opens his third eye. A beam of intense fire falls on Kaamdev, and he turns into the ashes.

Kamdev Bhasma

Parvati gets shocked and scared by the seeing anger of Bholenath.

Shiva closes his third eye and again get indulged in the penance. Rati starts weeping by seeing her husband ashes.

Rati cursed goddess Parvati that she will never have the happiness of having kids. Rati also cursed king of demigods, Indra that his throne will never remain stable.

Later sage Narad again enlightens Parvati that Shiva is not ordinary. He is incomparable, the supreme being.

Shiva was sitting over a rock and meditating like the supreme Vairagi.

That can be done if she wakes her Kundalini Yoga shakti or Chakras of the body.

It is possible only by performing the deepest level of Penance and having an exceptional amount of faith in Shiva.

Meanwhile, Lord Vishnu meets with Lord Shiva and tries to convince Shiva that at least Shiva should give a chance to Parvati to prove her divinity.

Shiva tells to Lord Vishnu that Parvati is limited to human limitations. She has not surpassed past life egoistic nature. Hence, she doesn't fulfill the eligibility to marry him.

On Lord Vishu's request, Shiva gets to agree to give a Chance to Parvati.

Parvati reaches the cave where Shiva was indulged in the penance and takes a vow that she will surely achieve Shiva as her husband.

While returning from the Cave, Vehicle of Shiva, Nandi meets Parvati as a stranger.

Nandi advises Parvati that instead of following the path of Love, She must go through the pathway of devotion.

Nandi tells to Parvati that Mahadev is kind enough that he can't stop his devotees from worshipping him.

By following the path of devotion, anybody can reach up to Shiva. Parvati understands the meaning of Nandi.

How parvati won the heart of shiva?

Goddess Parvati reaches to her palace where King Himavan presents her a grand golden Shivalinga.

King Himavan organizes much worshipping stuff like fruits, clothing, jewelry, pearls, golden robe and varieties of sweets.

Parvati gets delighted to see arrangement made by her father Himavan for her so that she could worship Shiva.

Parvati smiles and greets her father for his efforts. With a pleasant smile, Parvati defines her father that Shiva is a Vairagi.

Mahakaal has nothing to do with sweets, fruits, and these golden robes. Shiva is Bholenath who loves simplicity as Bilva leaves.

Goddess Parvati announces that she will construct mud Shiva Linga with her hands to worship Rudra.

Parvati collects Bilva leaves and mud from the jungle and reaches to her palace where she tries to construct Shiva Linga.

While sitting on the cremation ground, Shiva gets angrier on Parvati's efforts of worshipping him and shakes the earth by producing earthquakes and storm.

That destroys the Shivling. Parvati tries again, and Shiva Linga again collapses.

It becomes impossible for Parvati to worship Shiva without lingam.

By seeing Goddess Parvati getting fail again and again. Nandi seeks boon from Shiva.

Lord Shiva restrict Nandi from asking any boon which is related to goddess Parvati success.

Nandi gets depressed.

In Vaikuntha Lakshmi request Narayana to help Parvati in the difficult times; Narayan agrees on that and says Parvati is like the sister to him.

In a stranger's guise, Vishnu reaches on the place where Parvati was worshipping Shiva.

Vishnu -" Sister, I m a merchant, I was passing through it. Can I have some water so that I can fulfill my thirst?"

Parvati offers some water to the merchant and gives best wishes for his journey.

Before leaving the place, Merchant sees Parvati constructing Shivlinga which getting scatter continuously.

The Merchant requested Parvati that he wants to construct the Shivlinga for her in return of favor done by her on him.

Parvati says that she doesn't know, who is he? Then, how could she allow to construct Shivling for her?

Merchant states that by tying the protection thread in his arms. She could allow him as her brother.

Parvati tied the protection thread in merchant's arm. Merchant constructed a beautiful Shivlinga for Parvati.

Parvati waited for few moments to see Shivling getting scattered, but it doesn't get dissipated.

That shocks Parvati; she asks the merchant to reveal his identity.

Merchant gets transformed into Lord Vishnu. Parvati greets Lord Vishnu.

On cremation ground, Shiva states to Vishnu how can I destroy the Shivlinga which is constructed by you.

On the other side, Parvati states to Lord Vishnu that she is happy that Narayan called her sister and came to help her.

She also requested that she wants to construct Vishnu vallbha lingam by herself without anybody's help.

Vishnu smiles and gives his consent on goddess Parvati's words.

Parvati speaks to Shiva on her mind that Shivling construction by Lord Vishnu turned her victory to defeat. Now she has to construct it again.

Shiva gets agree that this behavior of Goddess Parvati is different from Sati's behavior. Finally, Shiva accepts Parvati win.

Shiva reminds Nandi that now Parvati has to go through the hardest level of penance to achieve me (Shiva) as her husband.

On the other side, Parvati decides to implement 16 Somwar fast (16 consecutive Monday fast) which will be followed by hardest penance upon Shiva.

From there Parvati wins the heart of the Shiva.
