Lord Shiva is one of the Tridevs. They are known by the names Bholenath, Shiv Shambhu, Shankar and Ashutosh. Lord Shiva is the lord of all the worlds. Lord Mahadev takes away all the sufferings of his devotees. The form of Lord Shiva is also different from all the gods. Trishul and dapru in the hand, serpent in the throat and moon on the forehead are formed by seeing this form.
But do you know how Lord Shiva held the Trishul, Damru and Nag? What’s the story behind that? Today in this article, we are going to tell you the interesting story behind Lord Shiva holding Trishul, Damru and Nag. So let’s know how Lord Shiva came to Trishul, Damru and Nag.
According to the Shiva Purana, the creator of weapons like the bow and the trident is Lord Shiva himself. There is an interesting story behind how Trishul came to them. It is said that when the universe was created, Lord Shiva appeared.
Along with him, the three gunas Raj, Tama and Sattva also appeared. Without these three qualities, creation and its smooth functioning would not have been possible. Because of this, Lord Shiva kept these three gunas tied in the form of a shul in his hand. The Trishul was formed by joining these three shulas.
There is always a snake hanging around Shiva’s neck. According to the Shiva Purana, the name of this serpent is Basuki. Basuki was the king of the Nagas. They ruled the country. Let us tell you that it was he who was wrapped at the place during Samudra Manthan. Nagraj Basuki was an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva. Pleased by their devotion, Lord Shiva took them in his embrace.
There is also an interesting story behind holding the Damru of God. It is said that when creation began, Goddess Saraswati appeared. Goddess Saraswati gave voice to the creation from the veena. But in this sound there was no melody or music. At that time, Shiva played the Damru 14 times. From the melody, rhythm and music of this damru, the sound was born on creation. According to the Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva is the incarnation of Lord Brahma.
