The birth of Lord Shiva

This is a story of brahma, Shiva and Vishnu.

There is an interesting story behind the birth of Lord Shiva. Shiva is also referred to as ‘Swayambhu’ meaning self-existing because he was not born from the womb of a woman.

One day, Brahma and Vishnu were arguing about their powers and importance in the universe. Both of them wanted to prove that one was mightier than the other. As they were discussing, a mysterious pillar appeared in front of them whose roots and the tip was not visible. Both of them could not understand what the pillar was and wondered if there exists any other supreme power than them.

They decided to solve the mystery of the mighty pillar. Lord Brahma transformed into a goose and flew upward to find the peak of the pillar. While Lord Vishnu transformed into a boar and dug the ground to find the root. However, they could not find any of it. They could neither find its peak nor its bottom. They came back to the place where it started and noticed the emergence of Lord Shiva from the pillar. Then, they accepted the fact that Lord Shiva was the supreme power.
