MODES OF SIVA PUJA

Background

During then, Nature seems conscious of the time, appears in its full splendour. It was at this time once the Omnicompassionate Bhagavan descended to adjudge a dispute that arose between Brahma and Vishnu. The legend exhilarates us with its oddity, better say, with the littleness of the mighty Gods. According to legend there arose a difference of opinion in the bygone eons of time, about the superiority of the Supreme Gods - Vishnu and Brahma -- who between thetwo was superior to the other ? Both laid their claims without number and argued vehemently. As the argument mounted higher and higher in gravity, the heat that was generated travelled fast to Kailas. Wondering at the nature of dispute and its tension, Lord Siva descended in the form of an effulgent pillar of light that had neither bottom nor top.  The contestants realising that it was no other than Siva in  that august shape, referred their case to Him.
