Goddess, AdiShakti (energy) manifested herself as the daughter of Daksha to get united with Shiva again.

Daksha named her Sati; she was the dearest daughter to him. When Sati attained her womanhood, she realizes that she was born to get married to Mahadev.

Sati's father Daksha never accepted Shiva divinity and had envy thoughts for him. He organized the Yagya and invited everyone, except Shiva.

When Sati came to know that her father organized the Yagya; she decided to visit the place.

Shiva reminds Sati that Daksha didn't invite them for the Yagya. Therefore, she must drop the idea of visiting her father house.

Sati argues with Shiva that Invitation is just a conventional rule. A daughter doesn't need an invitation to visit her father's house.

Shiva again tries to stop goddess Sati, but Sati vows to Shiva that if anything wrong happens there; he must appear after that.

Without any second thought, Sati reaches to the Yagya of Daksha. Daksha gets an opportunity to insult Shiva in a large public gathering.

Daksha insults Shiva with his noxious words. Sati tries to stop Daksha, but Daksha drops the level of language.

Sati requests everyone to make Daksha stop insulting Shiva.

She warns Daksha and everyone about the reason for her human birth, and now they have to face the wrath of Shiva.

Shiva's anger

As soon Sati collapses and leaves the human body Shiva gets free from the vow of Sati.

Teardrops come into Shiva's eye, and hairs get uncoiled. Angry Lord Shiva's eyes get red.

Shiva takes his Damru (pellet drum) and plays the instrument in the raucous beat. Then Shiva begins the dance of destruction knows as Shiva Tandava .

All the three realms start shaking, and the natural disaster starts happening on earth. Daksha was confident that he had the protection of Lord Vishnu.

Shiva orders Veerbhadra to destroy the entire kingdom of the Daksha. Veerbhadra takes leave of Shiva and with speed of hurricane reaches to the door of the Daksha's kingdom.

Daksha's army attacks the fearsome manifestation of Shiva, but Veerbhadra kills every soldier of Daksha.

Veerbhadra was roaring in the battleground, and his blades were washes with the blood of Daksha army.

Daksha prays Narayan to protect him from Veerbhadra and Narayan appears to help Daksha.

After seeing Narayan standing in front of him, Veerbhadra stops and requests Narayan to allow him to kill Daksha.

Narayan tells Veerbhadra about his asseveration that he had given to Daksha. Narayan binds Veerbhadra, and in honor of Narayan, Veerbhadra surrenders.

Shiva continues the Dance of destruction and takes another hair locks and throws in the ground. Shiva's another fearsome form goddess Bhadra - Kali appears.

Shiva explains goddess Bhadrakali to unlock the control of Veerbhadra. Goddess Bhadrakali reaches to the war zone and unlocks Veerbhadra.

Veerbhadra destroys the entire army of Daksha. Finally, Daksha attacks Veerbhadra and get defeated.

Daksha offers the special place for Veerbhadra in his temple, but Veerbhadra rejects Daksha every offer without listening to him.

Lastly, Daksha chants OM NAMAH SHIVAYA and Veerbhadra behead Daksha head which falls into the Yagya fire. Veerbhadra disappears after that, and Angry Shiva stops dance of Destruction.

Shiva angry eyes had teardrops. After that Shiva comes to the Yagya place and sees Daksha without a head. Daksha family mourn on Daksha and Sati's death.

On request of Daksha's family, Shiva returns the life of Daksha with a goat head.

After that Shiva sees the immolated body of Sati and weeps; he carries the dead body of the Sati and roams in the whole universe.

Lord Narayan gets depressed after feeling the grief of Shiva.
