DRAKSHARAMAM

Unable to swallow any more of the indiscreet derogatory verbiage, she burnt herself in the yogagni enveloped her at request. When heard about the untimely death of Sati, Lord Siva created Virabhadra and sent him to blow up the entire  yagasala and destroy Dhaksha - his abode, nagara and everything. With the entry of Virabhadra, there was pandemonium, when Suras too fled in all directions in such consternation that many Gods carried their mounts, instead of being carried by them - Kubera for instance carried his mount Nara. Dhaksha and his aides were instanteneously sent to Yamaloka as first contingent. Then appeared Lord Siva in his rudrarupa. The mere sight itself dispatched Dhaksha like minds. Pitying the plight of Sati and over - powered by grief, he began Thandavanritya with her corpse on shoulder. As it progressed with the mounting of his ungovernable anger, the whole universe shook, and the planets started drifting out of their orbits, signifying the onset of Pralaya and destruction of cosmos.
