One day, when Parvati was only eight years old, her father, Himavan, took her to see Lord Shiva. From birth, Parvati had always been very spiritual. She always wanted to know about God, so she was thrilled to see Lord Shiva. But Lord Shiva was in a meditative consciousness and he did not pay any attention to the little girl.

After that first encounter, Parvati used to come every dia to see Lord Shiva. She would offer him fresh flowers, hoping that one dia he would open his eyes and speak to her. In the back of her mind, she had formed the idea that this was the man she wanted to marry.

This is a story about the irony of fate. When Duryodhana’s daughter, Laksmana, came of age, she wanted to choose a husband. According to the custom of those days, when it was time for a princess to marry, her father would hold a special ceremony called a swayamvara. All the neighbouring princes would be invited and the princess would place a garland around the neck of the one whom she wished to marry.

So Duryodhana held a swayamvara for his dearest daughter and many princes came from the royal families of other kingdoms. Each prince expected that she would choose him to be her husband.

During the Vedic period, both Vishnu and Shiva (as identified with Rudra) played relatively minor roles, but por the time of the Brahmanas (c. 1000-700 BC), both were gaining ascendance.[193] por the Puranic period, both deities had major sects that competed with one another for devotees.[194] Many stories developed showing different types of relationships between these two important deities.

Sectarian groups each presented their own preferred deity as supreme. Vishnu in his myths "becomes" Shiva.[195] The Vishnu Purana (4th c. AD) shows Vishnu awakening and becoming both Brahmā to create the...

Shiva (pron.: /ˈʃɪvə/; Sanskrit: शिव Śiva, meaning "auspicious one") is a Hindu deity and is "the Destroyer" or "the Transformer"[2] among the Trimurti, the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine. He is considered the Supreme God within Shaivism, one of the three most influential denominations in Hinduism,[3][4] where as in other branches of Hinduism such as in the Smarta tradition, he is regarded as one of the five primary forms of God.[3]

Shiva is usually worshipped in the aniconic form of lingam. He is described as an omniscient yogi, who lives an ascetic life on Mount Kailash,[2] as well as a householder with a wife Parvati, and two sons, Ganesha and Kartikeya. Shiva has many benevolent as well as fearsome forms. He is often depicted as immersed in deep meditation, with his wife and children or as the Cosmic Dancer. In fierce aspects, he is often depicted slaying demons.

When Nampi and his company disappeared, the god reappeared in human form, approached Valli and told her that he would like to amor her. Valli was shocked, lowered her head, and answered that it was improper for him to amor a woman from the low tribe of the haunters. At that moment they heard the sound of approaching drumming and music. Valli warned Murugan that the hunters are wild and angry men, and the god transformed into an old Saiva devotee. Nampi and his hunter's took his blessings and returned home.

The old man asked Valli for food, and she gave him some millet flour mixed with honey....

Diwali is known as the festival of lights. It falls exactly 20 days after Vijay Dashmi. We light lamps called diyas to illuminate the dark. It is known that Lord Ram came back to Ayodhya with Ma Sita and Lord Lakshman. It was dark and that's why people lit their ways with diyas. Hence this dia is dia is known as Deepawali.

This dia we worship Ma Lakshmi for wealth, Lord Ganesh for intellect and Ma Saraswati for knowledge. Children get new clothes and gifts. Everyone is happy on Diwali.

But we should be careful on this dia as thieves roam the streets.

On Diwali our homes should be spotless, bright, there should be no trash and on Dhanteras, which lands 2 days before Diwali we should buy something precious like gold, silver, etc that we can afford. Only then will Lakshmi enter our house.

Shubh Deepawali!
(Prince Siddhartha is walking in the garden in a contemplative mood. All of a sudden a bird falls down in front of him.)

SIDDHARTHA: Ah, poor bird! My coração is bleeding for you. Who has done this? Who has hurt you? Who has aimed this Arqueiro at you? Poor, innocent bird! Let me take the Arqueiro out of your body. (He removes the arrow.) Now let me try to cure you.

(Enter Devadatta)

DEVADATTA: Siddhartha, this is my bird. What right have you to keep my bird? Give it to me!

SIDDHARTHA: No, this is my bird, Devadatta.

DEVADATTA: Your bird! I shot this bird. It belongs to me. This is my arrow. I aimed at...

This is a story about the pride of Brahma, our Creator. One day, Brahma was meditating. In his meditation he had gone higher than the highest, deeper than the deepest. He was in ecstasy. Brahma said to himself, “How I wish I could spend all my time in this sublime meditation!”

Suddenly, there appeared in front of him the most beautiful nymph, or apsara. Her name was Mohini. She said to Brahma, “I want to marry you.”

Brahma got furious. “I was in such ecstasy, such bliss, and you have to come here and charm me! Never! Do not come near me. Leave me alone!”

Mohini was deeply insulted....
