       LORD BHIMASHANKAR OF SAHYADRI

The boons of his invincibility and the impregnability of his cities emboldened him infinitely and so he started abusing his powers. With the turning of head, he turned upside down of everything held sacred, laudable and live-worthy hitherto. His launching on a campaign turned out all successful and installed him as the Lord of universe which ended in making Devendra await his bidding. In conformity with asurapalana, the Vedic rites were discarded; ascetics dishonored; hermitages destroyed and yagna, yagas discontinued. The woe-struck people bled and the mother Earth wailed unable to bear the burden of the injustice dancing naked everywhere - Dharma reached the lowest ebb. The afflicted approached Lord Siva with the supplication for his instant intervention. The enormity of ignominy brought to Dharma devata and destruction thrust upon the people moved him. Promising to taking up cudgel against Tripurasura, Lord Siva sent them away.

Assuming a gigantic form and putting on the aspect of roudra, he entered the battle field followed by his army of ganas including yogins like Sakini and Dakini in their fiercest forms. Tripura rushed with his hordes. It was a terrible war when the Lord was constrained to assert like Bhima and fought with an unprecedented valour and superabundant strength.
