DEar Subramaniyan ji,


Your reply No. 9 is very nice. Shiva and shakthi both are one. You explained very well. There are some pouranic stories where some sages wanted to worship only shive not shakthi, but Shiva took the form Ardhanareeswara roopam. So the sages understood the inner meaning of
Shiva. It looks like that, you want the sun without his light.  Without shakthi Shiva becomes SAVAM (dead body)

Dear Ramanaduli,

Yes. There was Rishi Bringi who was doing pradakshina only to Siva. Even after Sakti taking half His
body, he took a form of Bringi [bumblee bee] and did pradakshina to Siva only, by creating a hole
in between the two. Parvati cursed him and made him paralytic, i.e. lose sensation in both both the legs.
Siva then pardoned him and gave him a third leg. He also chastised Bringi that He and Parvati are
not different.



Arunachala Siva.
