NASIK - TRIYAMBAKEWSAR JYOTIRLINGA

It is at this time, Mother Parvathi met with a problem. Finding her Lord's clandestine liaison with Ganga, she desired to get rid of her. When confided to Vinayaka, her eldest son he suggested to cut off Siva's jatas, the seat of Ganga for solution. Mother Parvathi resented at it; for, her Lord would be deformed if done so. Then they took recourse to a stratagem - sending out Ganga through human agency. Vinayaka with the aid of Varuna created an artificial famine on earth everywhere, except near Gautam's asram. So all ascetics came to his asram for shelter. He happily accepted to play host. It went on for years. During then, one day, by chance he drove out a cow eating away grain in his asram with a bunch of Kusa grass. It died as planned by Vinayaka and his party.
