bhagavan shiv sati ko kndhe par uthakar sabhi dishaon men bhraman karate huye
  • daksh prajapati ki kee putriyan thi. sabhi putriyan gunavati thin. par daksh ke man men sntosh nahin tha. ve chahate the unake ghar men ek aisi putri ka janm ho, jo shakti-snpann ho. sarv-vijayini ho. daksh ek aisi putri ke lie tap karane lage. tap karate-karate adhik din bit ge, to bhagavati adya ne prakat hokar kaha, 'main tumhare tap se prasann hoon. main svay putri roop men tumhare yahan janm dharan karoongi. mera nam hoga sati. main sati ke roop men janm lekar apani lilaon ka vistar karoongi.' phalatah bhagavati adya ne sati roop men daksh ke yahan janm liya. sati daksh ki sabhi putriyon men alaukik thin. unhonne balyakal men hi kee aise alaukik krity kar dikhae the, jinhen dekhakar svayn daksh ko bhi vismay ki laharon men doob jana pada.
  • jab sati vivah yogy huee, to daksh ko unake lie var ki chinta huee. unhonne brahma ji se paramarsh kiya. brahma ji ne kaha, 'sati adya ka avatar hain. adya adishakti aur shiv adi purush hain. atah sati ke vivah ke lie shiv hi yogy aur uchit var hain.' daksh ne brahma ji ki bat manakar sati ka vivah bhagavan shiv ke sath kar diya. sati kailash men jakar bhagavan shiv ke sath rahane lagin. yadyapi bhagavan shiv ke daksh ke jamata the, kintu ek aisi ghatana ghati jisake karan daksh ke hriday men bhagavan shiv ke prati bair aur virodh paida ho gaya. *ghatana is prakar thi— ek bar brahma ne dharm ke niroopan ke lie ek sabha ka ayojan kiya tha. sabhi bade-bade devata sabha men ekatr the. bhagavan shiv bhi ek or baithe the. sabha mandal men daksh ka agaman hua. daksh ke agaman par sabhi devata uthakar khade ho ge, par bhagavan shiv khade nahin hue. unhonne daksh ko pranam bhi nahin kiya. phalatah daksh ne apaman ka anubhav kiya. keval yahi nahin, unake hriday men bhagavan shiv ke prati eershya ki ag jal uthi. ve unase badala lene ke lie samay aur avasar ki pratiksha karane lage. bhagavan shiv ko kisi ke man aur kisi ke apaman se kya matalab? ve to samadarshi hain. unhen to charon or amrit dikhaee padata hai. jahan amrit hota hai, vahan kaduvahat aur kasailepan ka kya kam?
  • bhagavan shiv kailash men din-rat ram-ram kaha karate the. sati ke man men jigyasa utpann ho uthi. unhonne avasar pakar bhagavan shiv se prashn kiya, 'ap ram-ram kyon kahate hain? ram kaun hain?' bhagavan shiv ne uttar diya, 'ram adi purush hain, svaynbhoo hain, mere aradhy hain. sagun bhi hain, nirgun bhi hain.' kintu sati ke knth ke niche bat utari nahin. ve sochane lagin, ayodhya ke nripati dasharath ke putr ram adi purush ke avatar kaise ho sakate hain? ve to ajakal apani patni sita ke viyog men dndak van men unmatton ki bhanti vicharan kar rahe hain. vriksh aur lataon se unaka pata poochhate phir rahe hain. yadi ve adi purush ke avatar hote, to kya is prakar acharan karate? sati ke man men ram ki pariksha lene ka vichar utpann hua. sita ka roop dharan karake dndak van men ja pahunchi aur ram ke samane prakat hueen. bhagavan ram ne sati ko sita ke roop men dekhakar kaha, 'mata, ap ekaki yahan van men kahan ghoom rahi hain? baba vishvanath kahan hain?' ram ka prashn sunakar sati se kuchh uttar dete n bana. ve adrishy ho gee aur man hi man pashchatap karane lagin ki unhonne vyarth hi ram par sndeh kiya. ram sachamuch adi purush ke avatar hain. sati jab lautakar kailash geen, to bhagavan shiv ne unhen ate dekh kaha, 'sati, tumane sita ke roop men ram ki pariksha lekar achchha nahin kiya. sita meri aradhya hain. ab tum meri ardhangini kaise rah sakati ho! is janm men ham aur tum pati aur patni ke roop men nahin mil sakate.' shiv ji ka kathan sunakar sati atyadhik dukhi hueen, par ab kya ho sakata tha. shiv ji ke mukh se nikali huee bat asaty kaise ho sakati thi? shiv ji samadhisth ho ge. sati du:kh aur pashchatap ki laharon men doobane utarane lagin.

unhin dinon sati ke pita kanakhal men bahut bada ygy kar rahe the. unhonne ygy men sabhi devataon aur muniyon ko amantrit kiya tha, kintu shiv ji ko amantrit nahin kiya tha, kyonki unake man men shiv ji ke prati eershya thi. sati ko jab yah gyat hua ki usake pita ne bahut bade ygy ki rachana ki hai, to unaka man ygy ke samaroh men sammilit hone ke lie baichain ho utha. shiv ji samadhisth the. atah ve shiv ji se anumati lie bina hi virabhadr ke sath apane pita ke ghar chali geen.

  • kahin-kahin sati ke pitrigrih jane ki ghatana ka varnan ek doosare roop men is prakar milata hai— ek bar sati aur shiv kailash parvat par baithe hue paraspar vartalap kar rahe the. usi samay akash marg se kee viman kanakhal ki or jate hue dikhaee pade. sati ne un vimanon ko dikhakar bhagavan shiv se poochha, 'prabho, ye sabhi viman kisake hai aur kahan ja rahe hain?'

bhagavan shaknr ne uttar diya, 'apake pita ne ygy ki rachana ki hai. devata aur devanganaen in vimanon men baithakar usi ygy men sammilit hone ke lie ja rahe hain.'
sati ne doosara prashn kiya, 'kya mere pita ne apako ygy men sammilit hone ke lie nahin bulaya?'
bhagavan shnkar ne uttar diya, 'apake pita mujhase bair rakhate hain, phir ve mujhe kyon bulane lage?'
sati man hi man sochane lagin, phir bolin, 'ygy ke avasar par avashy meri bahanen aengi. unase mile hue bahut din ho ge. yadi apaki anumati ho, to main bhi apane pita ke ghar jana chahati hoon. ygy men sammilit ho loongi aur bahanon se bhi milane ka suavasar milega.'
bhagavan shiv ne uttar diya,'is samay vahan jana uchit nahin hoga. apake pita mujhase jalate hain,ho sakata hai ve apaka bhi apaman karen. bina bulae kisi ke ghar jana uchit nahin hota'
bhagavan shiv ne uttar diya,'han, vivahita ladaki ko bina bulae pita ke ghar nahin jana chahie, kyonki vivah ho jane par ladaki apane pati ki ho jati hai. pita ke ghar se usaka snbndh toot jata hai.' kintu sati pihar jane ke lie hath karati rahin. apani bat bar-bat doharati rahin. unaki ichchha dekhakar bhagavan shiv ne pihar jane ki anumati de di. unake sath apana ek gan bhi kar diya, us gan ka nam virabhadr tha. sati virabhadr ke sath apane pita ke ghar geen, kintu unase kisi ne bhi premapoorvak vartalap nahin kiya. daksh ne unhen dekhakar kaha,'tum kya yahan mera apaman karane aee ho? apani bahanon ko to dekho, ve kis prakar bhanti-bhanti ke alnkaron aur sundar vastron se susajjit hain. tumhare sharir par matr baghnbar hai. tumhara pati shmashanavasi aur bhooton ka nayak hai. vah tumhen baghnbar chhodakar aur pahana hi kya sakata hai.' daksh ke kathan se sati ke hriday men pashchatap ka sagar umad pada. ve sochane lagin, ‘unhonne yahan akar achchha nahin kiya. bhagavan thik hi kah rahe the, bina bulae pita ke ghar bhi nahin jana chahie. par ab kya ho sakata hai? ab to a hi gee hoon.'
pita ke katu aur apamanajanak shabd sunakar bhi sati maun rahin. ve us ygymndal men geen jahan sabhi devata aur rishi-muni baithe the tatha ygykund men dhoo-dhoo karati jalati huee agni men ahutiyan dali ja rahi thin. sati ne ygymndap men sabhi devataon ke to bhag dekhe, kintu bhagavan shiv ka bhag nahin dekha. ve bhagavan shiv ka bhag n dekhakar apane pita se bolin, 'pitrishreshth! ygy men to sabake bhag dikhaee pad rahe hain, kintu kailashapati ka bhag nahin hai. apane unaka bhag kyon nahin diya?' daksh ne garv se uttar diya, 'mai tumhare pati kailash ko devata nahin samajhata. vah to bhooton ka svami, nagn rahane vala aur haddiyon ki mala dharan karane vala hai. vah devataon ki pnkti men baithane yogy nahin hain. use kaun bhag dega.

  • sati ke netr lal ho uthe. unaki bhaunhe kutil ho geen. unaka mukhamndal pralay ke soory ki bhanti tejoddipt ho utha. unhonne pida se tilamilate hue kaha,'oh! main in shabdon ko kaise sun rahin hoon, mujhe dhikkar hai. devatao, tumhen bhi dhikkar hai! tum bhi un kailashapati ke lie in shabdon ko kaise sun rahe ho, jo mngal ke pratik hain aur jo kshan matr men snpoorn srishti ko nasht karane ki shakti rakhate hain. ve mere svami hain. nari ke lie usaka pati hi svarg hota hai. jo nari apane pati ke lie apamanajanak shabdon ko sunati hai, use narak men jana padata hai. prithvi suno, akash suno aur devataon, tum bhi suno! mere pita ne mere svami ka apaman kiya hai. main ab ek kshan bhi jivit rahana nahin chahati.' sati apane kathan ko samapt karati huee ygy ke kund men kood padi. jalati huee ahutiyon ke sath unaka sharir bhi jalane laga. ygymndap men khalabali paida ho gee, hahakar mach gaya. devata uthakar khade ho ge. virabhadr krodh se kanp ute. ve uchhl-uchhalakar ygy ka vidhvns karane lage. ygymndap men bhagadad mach gee. devata aur rishi-muni bhag khade hue. virabhadr ne dekhate hi dekhate daksh ka mastak katakar phenk deya. samachar bhagavan shiv ke kanon men bhi pada. ve prachnd andhi ki bhanti kanakhal ja pahunche. sati ke jale hue sharir ko dekhakar bhagavan shiv ne apane apako bhool ge. sati ke prem aur unaki bhakti ne shnkar ke man ko vyakul kar diya. un shnkar ke man ko vyakul kar diya, jinhonne kam par bhi vijay prapt ki thi aur jo sari srishti ko nasht karane ki kshamata rakhate the. ve sati ke prem men kho ge, besudh ho ge.
  • bhagavan shiv ne unmat ki bhanti sati ke jale hie sharir ko kndhe par rakh liya. ve sabhi dishaon men bhraman karane lage. shiv aur sati ke is alaukik prem ko dekhakar prithvi ruk gee, hava rook gee, jal ka pravah thahar gaya aur ruk geen devataon ki sanse. srishti vyakul ho uthi, srishti ke prani pukarane lage— pahimam! pahimam! bhayanak snkat upasthit dekhakar srishti ke palak bhagavan vishnu age badhe. ve bhagavan shiv ki besudhi men apane chakr se sati ke ek-ek ang ko kat-kat kar girane lage. dharati par ikyavan sthanon men sati ke ang kat-katakar gire. jab sati ke sare ang kat kar gir ge, to bhagavan shiv punah apane ap men ae. jab ve apane ap men ae, to punah srishti ke sare kary chalane lage.
  • dharati par jin ikyavan sthanon men sati ke ang kat-katakar gire the, ve hi sthan aj shakti ke pith sthan mane jate hain. aj bhi un sthanon men sati ka poojan hota hain, upasana hoti hai. dhany tha shiv aur sati ka prem. shiv aur sati ke prem ne unhen amar bana diya hai, vndaniy bana diya hai.
