|TODAY ONE GETS THE FRUITS OF JAYAA=PAARVATI -VRAT: PAARVATI-MAATAA 'S KRUPAA |
Posted by Champaklal Dajibhai Mistry on July 26, 2002
|Today is the final day of the 5-day jayaa-paarvati
vrat. During these five days, those performing the vrat will be offering
intense bhakti to paarvati-maataa. Part of performing a
bhakti is to remember the glories of the dev or devi or devataa to whom bhakti is offered. Let us know some of the
vaibhav (glories of shakti)
and krupaa of paarvati-maataa today........|
|parvati-devi's basic nimitt has been to protect its bhakto and the
shrushti (creation) so they can serve brhmah. Here is some of her krupaa to her bhakto:|
1. arjun of paandavo brothers in mahaa-bhaarat was constantly guarded by
paarvati-devi during paandavo's 13 year van-vaas (exile in forest).
2. krishna-bhagvaan during his avataar once propitiated paarvatiji and obtained boons to have sixteen thousand wives;
to have a handsome form; to get affection from his relatives; and have prosperity to offer food to seven thousand atithi (guests) daily.
3. paarvati-devi expounded to gangaa-devi the sva-dharma of
a woman during her various aashramo in life. This teaching of strii-sva-dharma
then became the standard for all women.
WARNING: It is adhaarmik and dangerous for one to offend any dev
or devi or devataa and especially paarvati-devi. The devo can never bear sons by their own wives because of a curse of
paarvati-devi on them. The curse resulted from anger aroused in paarvati-devi when devo asked
her husband, shiv-bhagvan, to not bear a son of paarvati-devi because the whole world would not be able to support a son born of them because of the
shakti that the son would get from shiv-bhagvaan. And shiv-dev agreed to do
so which made paarvati-devi very angry.
