Today we are going to read Sanskrit Class 7 seventh verse achieving accomplishment. As mentioned in this lesson, anything can be achieved with strong willpower. In this story, Parvati wants to get Shiva. So, let’s see exactly what happened in the story-
Impressed by the words of Narada Ji, the son of Brahma, Parvati Shiva manifested the desire to practice God in the form of Husband in front of his mother Mena. Upon hearing this, mother Mena became very worried. Because Parvati had to go to some mountain away from home for austerity. Where there was nothing worth living on. It was very cold, there were wild animals. Thereby threatens the lives of Parvati.
Parvati’s mother said that you want to get married here and do it here. Austerity is very difficult. You are very gentle so you stay at home. Here only your austerity will be successful. Parvati said on this, that such wish does not succeed like this, Mother! For that, I have to make the penance. Notwithstanding much refusal of Mata, she did not accept Parvati and remained in her resolve. She went out with her friend Vijaya for austerity on the Gauri Shikhar Mountain.
After reaching the mountain, Parvati got involved in penance with tan-mind. She used to do penance, sometimes he would fall asleep on the earth and on the stone. Her austerity became so good that even the dreaded animals of the forest became her friends. But still, he could not achieve her resolve. But still, she did not break his patience and continued to do penance. Parvati, doing penance, studied Vedo and performed many yagya too. For the reason that her name Aparna was also famous in the world. But still, the fruit of penance was not visible. Only then one Brahmachari comes there and demands water for drinking.
Vijaya quickly greets the Brahmachari and seats him. After that, she gives water to him and tells him that this is my beloved Parvati. To achieve Shiva there is austerity here. Then Brahmachari asks Parvati whether there is water for bathing here? Is there something to eat here? Is there content for worship here? Brahmachari says that the first religion is the body religion.
After that Brahmachari asks – for whom is doing penance. Parvati is standing quietly and does not speak anything. Then disturbed Vijaya speaks – yes, doing penance for Shiva. Brahmachari starts to laugh loudly and says – is it right that you want to get Shiva in the form of the husband? It is not only Shiva by name, but it is Ashiva, she lives in a cemetery, she has three eyes, her clothes are the tiger’s skin, the organ lamps are ashes of dead bodies and the ghost is her friend. Do you want that Shiva in the form of a husband?
Angrily Parvati speaks out loud – nobody in the world knows the real form of Shiva. Just like you speak. Then look at Vijaya and speaks – Come on, who condemns, it will be a sinner, and whoever listens with it is also a sinner. Parvati gets out of there fast. Only then Brahmachari, standing behind, abandons the Brahmachari form and comes into Shiva form and takes hold of Parvati. Parvati trembles with shame. Shiva speaks-
This is Parvati! I am very pleased with your resolve. From today, I am the slave bought by your penance. Then Parvati smiles down her face.
