Lord Shiva along with Lord Brahma and Vishnu together form the entire universe. Their powers and strength to control the world are immeasurable. We often claim to know a lot about this holy Tridev diety. But, history holds a lot of mystery for all of us in store. Today, we are going to discuss the lesser-known part of Lord Shiva's life. Just as every human being needs a family that can back them up whenever and wherever possible, Lord Shiva also had someone who was created on his wife's insistence. But, what followed after that was unexpected.
I'm talking about his sister Devi Asavari. Read further and you will know some unknown facts about Asavari.
Mythological evidence are a proof of the fact that Lord Shiva created his sister Asavari on his wife, Devi Parvati's insistence.
After getting married to Lord Shiva, Parvati moved to his abode, but she always missed her family and sisters there. Though Lord Shiva's beloved Nandi took extra care of Parvati Ji, then too, she started feeling lonely.
It was Parvati's desire to have a sister like a companion always by her side.
Since Kailash was filled with men everywhere and Parvati was the only woman there, it was decided that her companion must be a woman.
But there was a condition, Goddess Parvati was asked to take care of her all her life.
Shiva is the God of death, so he combined all his powers and created a woman just like him. And that is how Asavari was born.
Asavari was born with cracked feet, long and open hair, she wore nothing except animal skin. Parvati tried to groom her and gave her clothes to wear.
Parvati cooked delicious meals for Asavari who always kept on asking for more until all the food on Kailash was finished leaving everyone helpless.
When Parvati was going to Lord Shiva to complain about the problem of food, Asavari played a trick and hid Parvati in her cracked heels. On finally being warned by Lord Shiva, she jerked off her foot and Parvati fell out of it.
Parvati eventually asked Lord Shiva to take Asavari away and that's when she told him that if only his sister would be instilled with manners she will accept her.
To which Lord Shiva replied: "If you cannot have someone at their worst, then you must not have them at their best." He also said, "No two women (not related by blood), could live happily for too long under the same roof."
