Akhilandeshwari Devi

An anger fire spreaded from the third eye of Mahadev. To protect  the world from this anger fire, Parvati took the form of Akhilandeshwari Devi.

Later Narayana took the form of farmer and show Mahadev how his vivid, duties-free state was affecting the world. He asked Shiva to help his bullocks cultivate the soil. Shiva saw the sadness and restlessness in animals.

Narayana reminded him his own words, “Do your work being a doer without expectations. Become a hermit“.

Mahadev played his damru and world got enlightened. He played his damru 14 times and which created 14 formulas.

This proves that God don’t have any life for themselves. They can’t get free from their duties.
