It was in Brahmachari Avatar, that Lord Shiva tested Goddess Parvati’s determination to marry him. After sacrificing her life in Daksha’s Yajna, when Sati was reborn in the house of the Himalayas, she performed intense austerity to attain Lord Shiva as her husband. To test Parvati’s devotion, Shiva disguised himself as a celibate ascetic (Brahmachari) and approached her. Parvati worshipped the ascetic according to the prescribed rituals.

When the ascetic inquired about the purpose of her austerity and upon learning, began to criticize Shiva, calling him a dweller of cremation grounds and a Kapalika. Hearing this, Parvati became extremely angry. Witnessing Parvati’s devotion and love, Shiva revealed his true form to her. Upon seeing this, Parvati became immensely delighted.

Among all the 19 Avatars of Lord Shiva, this incarnation was the one who tested the willpower of Goddess Parvati to marry him.

As Brahmachari Avatar, Lord Shiva tested Goddess Parvati’s determination to marry him.

This is yet another manifestation of Lord Shiva, which was taken by him to test Maa Parvati. Maa Parvati worshipped Lord Shiva with true devotion and observed penance and got Lord Shiva as her husband

Lord Shiva appeared in this form to test Mata Parvati’s devotion to him before their marriage.

Lord Shiva took this avatar to prove the love of the goddess Parvati for him. After sacrificing himself in the fire of Yajna, Sati was born again like Parvati, the daughter of the Himalayas. As Parvati, she wanted to marry Lord Shiva. It was as Brahmachari that Lord Shiva had shown his determination to marry her.
