TIRUPPATIRIPULIYAR

To enjoy the mirth of it Siva looked at Vishnu and gave him some directions, probably to give him a chance to win. Parvati immediately noticed this. At the end of the game, she wanted Maha Vishnu to declare who was the winner. Parvati was really the winner, but Siva had requested that he should be declared the winner. Thus, Maha Vishnu was placed in a dilemma. Maha Vishnu replied that he was

Absent-minded and could not follow the game properly as he was looking with wonder at the matted hair of Lord Siva. Parvati was not satisfied with this reply. As it happens with womenfolk, Parvati took it to heart and was disappointed at the reply of MahaVishnu, which she never expected. As she was sure that she had won the game, she said: "The eyes of Lord Siva will never utter a lie. I shall place my hands on Siva's three eyes to close them. If they do not glitter, the judgment will be in my favor." Saying this, Parvati put her hands sportingly on the eyes of Lord Siva. Then a great gloom shrouded the Universe.
