After Goddess Sati, the eternal consort of Lord Shiva immolated herself in the Yajna fire organized by her own father, the King Daksha Prajapati, Lord Shiva took rigorous penance and retired to the Himalayas.

After the penance of Lord Shiva seemed to be never-ending, as the tales have it, Goddess Sati reborn as Parvati performed penance to break Shiva’s meditation. She won his attention, and when none of it worked for gods of Swarga loka (Heaven).
