The Legend behind Anang Trayodashi
We all know that Lord Shiva was highly disturbed after Devi Sati’s immolation in the yagya ceremony of king Daksha Prajapati. He was extremely furious and left the place with Sati’s dead body at his shoulders. His extreme aggression gave strength to destructive powers of the universe, they tend to get stronger. The things were out of control and to find a solution, Lord Vishnu divided the dead body into several parts and wherever these body parts fell, a jyotirlinga was formed. In severe pain and emotional state, Lord Shiva started meditation which was for infinite time. With Lord shiva in the state of deep meditation, tyranny of negative souls especially of demon Tarakasura was rising day after day.
The demon attacked Devlok to defeat king of devas i.e. Devraj Indra. This was a worrisome condition for the universe and everyone was worried for the life on Earth to come to an end. All devas approached Lord Brahma to seek help to defeat Tarakasura and win the throne again for devraj Indra. Lord Brahma suggested that only the son of Lord Shiva could kill Tarakasur. This made all of them even more stressed as Lord Shiva was meditating in isolation and there was no partner to him.
Goddess Sati had to bring back to life by Lord Shiva to bear a son but how that could be possible. For this first of all, Lord Shiva has to break his meditation and come back to real world. Kamdev took the responsibility of waking Lord shiva from his state of meditation. Kamdev put his kama arrow at Lord Shiva to awaken him. Lord shiva woke up but only to his greatest fury, he opened his destructive third eye to make Kamadeva lose all his body parts. When Lord Shiva came to know the actual reason, he realized his mistake and became calm.
Lord Shiva then blessed Kamadev and agreed to the suggestion made by Lord Brahma. Rati, the incarnation of sati pleaded Him to give life to Kamadeva. Kamadeva without any body organ called Anang Dev. On this day, Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati are worshipped. He informed that once Lord Vishnu will take incarnation as Lord Krishna, Kamadev will be born as pradyumn, the son of Lord Krishna. This way Kamadeva will get alive again.
