TRYAMBAKESHVAR - TRYAMBAK

But this Gautama was destined to perform an act of great utility to the people at large and to some divine beings in particular and hence he had to face a grave crisis. The stage of action now shifted to the Kailas mountain. Here was the abode of Shiva and Parvati. Shiva had, as is well known, caught Ganga that came down from the heavens in his Jata-mukuta to prevent her from boring her way down to the patal-loka. This celestial lady was exceedingly beautiful and charming, and Shiva could not resist her charms. He used to take her out of his jatas and make love to her when no one was around. If someone approached she could be easily hidden in the hair. This game went on for a long time.

Once however, Parvati entered the place when Shiva was flirting with Ganga. On finding her husband thus secretly engaged in a romance, she turned about and walked off. She tried to control herself but found it impossible to nurse the secret too long. Then she called her son, Ganesh, aside and gave vent to her grievance. Had she not served her husband so well? He was dearer to her heart than anything else; she was as beautiful -even more so than the cursed Ganga; then why this dishonesty? Why this unfaithfulness? The young man was as furious as his mother and solemnly announced his intention of solving the crisis immediately.
