Daily news watch is now presenting the “Story of Indian Mythology”, in which you will be reading a completely descriptive and sourced story of all forms of gods and goddesses. It will comprise all the stories from the starting from the creation of universe to till now. Everything will be sourced from all the “Puranas” and “Upanishads”.
Adi Shakti Creating Universe
[Start of Devi Bhagwat Purana and Markandeya Purana] Before the beginning, there was nothing except “infinite zero” or GOD along with “Divine Peace” also known as “Sacred Silent Energy” or “GOD’s Energy” or “Adi Shakti”, both were formless, no shape, odorless. The state of GOD is called “Shiva tatva”, it doesn’t mean god Shiva. Shiva is supreme state where God and God’s silent energy exists, but, due to wish of GOD to give birth, made GOD active. When GOD was inactive i.e. phenomenon of static state of energy also known as Para Brahman or GOD, which was neither a male nor a female, which was neither having masculine attributes nor having any feminine attributes, But, by the phenomenon, when God becomes active, There was no more silence a sound of “OM” appeared and God started possessing “Feminine attributes”. Wish of giving birth is itself is feminine attribute. [Start of Brahmand Purana] As such God then converted to beautiful feminine form called “Goddess” or “Adi Parashakti” or “Jagadambika” that means “mother of Universe”. She was virgin and by God’s wish, God converted to Adi Shakti. Now, Energy was no more silent. So Active Aspect of God i.e. Adi Shakti laid a cosmic egg or Brahmanda or first super matter.
[Start of Shiva Purana Module 1] Time automatically started since first matter appeared Time was also not in shape. It means Mahakaal, who also known as formless Shiva. This is the reason, why the supreme state of God is called Shiva tatva since at the state there was no time or Shiva. At this point Shiva was “Shava” but when GOD became active as Adi Shakti and give birth to first matter, then automatically, Time or Formless Shiva appeared. The active state of God is called Shakti tatva. When the egg busted, there appeared a big plasma ocean called space with very small first seed. Adi Shakti converted herself to big protective layer to give base to the seed, it protected the first seed produced and the seed grew to become first male or “Narayana”, who was dark blue in color having four hands holding chakra, couch, lotus flower and gada, on the other hand the base became “Sheshnaag”. The Parashakti’s first energy evolved with Narayana was “Gowri Devi” or Narayani (the first female), but she also didn’t get any shape but existed and regarded as his cosmic sister. [Start of Bhagwat Purana | Vishnu Purana] Lord Narayana or Lord Krishna was first being with form hence considered to be supreme in all deities with form. Then Adi shakti dropped second seed into navel of Narayana that raises to form big lotus. That big lotus blossomed completely and there was second male who took birth inside Narayana’s naval. So he was partial form of Narayana.
Narayana as Pratham Purush
Lord Narayana was in mystic sleep also known as Yog Nindra, he was unaware that from his ears two more embodies took birth in the form of two evil looking personalities who looked alike. While travelling inside the plasma oceanic space, they heard a sound called “Kleem” in the universe. They started repeating the same sound by this; they got the knowledge to speak in the language of beej sounds and knowledge of death and life, by repeating the sounds. Adi shakti asked them to stop doing penance and asked them what they want? The beings asked her who they are. She replied that you are Madhu and Kaitabh, and said whatever they will ask I will complete it. They both replied that they wanted to live till we want. She replied them positively. They were wandering and then they saw a Brahma sitting on lotus with five heads and four hands thinking anomaly. By looking at him they wanted to eat the being, they immediately attacked Brahma. Brahma got scared and went down to Lord Narayana. He shook his legs so that he could awake and may protect him. But, he was in deep mystic sleep so he was not able listen him. Brahma prayed to Yog Nindra so that she may leave the eyes of Narayana. By the pray, Yog Nindra left his eyes and appeared in the female form. The female form was black in color, having four hands like Narayana holding the same attributes. Yog Nindra was energy (Shakti) of first male’s eyes i.e Narayna’s. Likewise, every part of his body comprised of particular energy or Shakti. Lord Narayana woke up and got to know complete situation. He took pity on Brahma and asked demons to fight with him not the Brahma. Lord fought almost 15000 years with the demons, but they were no killed by them. Yog Nindra was watching all that, She replied to Brahma that they have got boon from “Adi Shakti” that they would be killed by their own wish. After hearing this, He told everything to Vishnu by calling him aside. Vishnu said them to take a break he has got tired as such Yog Nindra converted herself to Yog Maya, and deluded both the devils. They started boasting about their power. Vishnu said them that he was happy and wanted to grant them a wish. Madhu and Kaitabh said that you are weak and we are strong, you couldn’t give us boon, we would give you boon, you say what you wanted?
Narayana said you both to be killed by me. Madhu and Kaitabh both were surprised by this. To get themselves saved, they said that kill them where there is no plasma ocean (Ksheer Sagar). By listening to these words Narayana expanded his body, put them on his lap and killed them by his Chakra. Brahma called the big form as “Maha Vishnu”.
Sada Shiva as panchmukhi
[Shiva Purana restarted module 2] There after Brahma asked Vishnu from where you came? Who are you? Vishnu said I have created you. Brahma didn’t agree with Vishnu. He said when he was appeared, I just saw a fully blossomed lotus and I was sitting on it, there was no one except me so I am greater and I am first. Mahavishnu said you have taken birth from me. They started debating on this. Immediately, a big pillar came between them, a sound from big pillar was heard by both, the one who could know the end of the pillar will be first and greater. Brahma went down and Mahavishnu went up. Mahavishnu couldn’t find so he went up, but Brahma thought if Vishnu would knew the end of pillar then he would be declared greater so better to say false. He went and said he got where the end is. Brahma said the same whatever he has thought in his mind. But pillar opened up the false statement and cursed that his wrong words and boon will always obtain hurdles in his works. Lord Narayana asked “Who is there in Pillar”? By this a being with five heads and 10 arms appeared, he got three eyes on all his faces, dark blue in color. He explained he is incarnated as an “Incarnation of Great Time”. He replied we all are entity of same Brahman and will do the tasks “Creation”, “Preservation” and “Destruction” and that will be allotted by Supreme Power.
