The churning of the great oceans brought out numerous things. In fact, there was a fierce battle between demons and deities over the vessel of the elixir (nectar). Lord Vishnu tricked all the Asuras (demons) by creating an illusion of enchanting beauty.

When the Asuras took note of them, they forcibly carried them to their abode – Patal Lok. After that, they came back to take control of the nectar. However, the gods had already taken it.

Vishnu went to the Patal Lok to annihilate them. However, he was caught up in Maya and fathered many immoral sons who went on to create a ruckus for the Gods. To get rid of these cruel sons of Vishnu, Lord Shiva assumed the form of an Ox known as Vrishabha Avatar and killed all the brutal sons of Lord Vishnu.

However, Lord Vishnu came to fight the ox. Still, he returned to his abode after realizing that it was an incarnation of Lord Shiva himself.

Lord Vishnu deceived every one of the asuras, during the Samundra Manthan, by creating a mirage of charming beauties. At the point when the asuras saw them, they coercively took these charming beauties to their house – Patal Lok. From that point forward, they again got back to assume responsibility for the Nectar which had been taken by the divine beings. While Vishnu went to demolish them in Patal Loka he, at the end of the day, became involved with the Maya and fathered numerous corrupt children there, who caused a commotion for the Gods. It was then the Lord Shiva Avatar of Vrishabha appeared as a bull and killed every one of the horrible children of Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu came to battle the bull avatar of Lord Shiva, however, after perceiving that it was Lord Shiva’s Avatar, he left the battle and retreated to his abode.


During the Samudra Manthan, Vishnu employed a clever tactic to deceive the asuras by creating an illusion of enchanting beauties. As the asuras were captivated and carried these illusory beauties to their realm, Patal Lok, the gods managed to secure the coveted Nectar. However, a surprising turn of events occurred when Vishnu ventured into Patal Lok and fell prey to Maya’s illusion. This led him to father morally questionable offspring who wreaked havoc for the gods. In response, Lord Shiva took on the form of a bull, Vrishabha, and eliminated these troublesome offspring. Recognizing Shiva’s incarnation, Vishnu abandoned the confrontation and returned to his celestial abode.

Vrishabh Avatar – Fight Between Shiva and NarayanaOnce Goddess Lakshmi argued with Vishnu over the matter of who resides inside his heart. Vishnu said that Mahadev resides in half part of his heart. Lakshmi had no problem in that but she asked about another half part. Vishnu said that she also resides in the other half part.

Lakshmi got furious over the statement of Narayana. As her wife, she wanted Narayana to be completely hers only. Vishnu said that it can’t be possible. All His devotees resides in His heart.

Lakshmi was angry because she was in the queue of Narayana’s devotees and not exclusively loved by Him. So she asked Him to go and live with His devotees and forget her.

Narayana tried to convince Lakshmi but she got blind with her anger and asked Him to leave.

In patal Loka some nymph were praying and when Narayana appeared they asked Him to become their husband and forget everything of this world and stay with them. Narayana had no other option and so He blessed them with their wish. Narayan forgot everything even his existence as trinity God.

Without Narayana the universe started shaking. Mahadev took Vrishabh Avatar and started fighting with Him. For several years this fight kept on going.

Shiva was only defending himself and Narayana was attacking. Then Narayana used Narayan Astra and Mahadev used Pashupatastra. Both got captured in bounds. For several years they remained captured.

Then Ganesha went to Nymphs and asked them to free Narayana from their boon and let Him go because its impossible to hold any trinity God. It’s against nature.

Nymphs released Narayana from their promise and He remembered everything. He found that His Sudarshan left in Patal Loka then Shiva offered Him one more Chakra and asked to leave the left one for the prosperity of Patal.

Shiva then blessed the residents that without their permission no one could enter Patal Loka.

Lakshmi understood that Trinity Gods are in all the elements of this world. One can’t confine them within limits. They have responsibilities and equally adored by everyone.

It is said in the religious texts that there are 19 incarnations of Lord Shiva. Most of the incarnations of Lord Shiva were for the destruction of the demons. But do you know that Shiva had also taken an avatar to kill the sons of Vishnu and that incarnation was Vrishabha(Taurus). Let us know why Lord Shiva had to kill Lord Vishnu’s sons.

Who does not know the glory of Bholenath? There is no limit of the glory of Mahadev, the God of Gods, Shiva killed his own demonic son in order to maintain peace.

Lord Vishnu, Mother Durga and Shiva are always ready to protect the universe. It is also mentioned in the religious texts that whenever the gods and humans called Shiva, he rushed to remove their troubles. A story is also mentioned in the Shiva Purana that in order to save the three worlds from the demons, he also killed the sons of Lord Vishnu.
The glory of Lord Bholenath is incomparable. He is also the destroyer of the universe and he is also the protector. When the world ends, it is done the by the hands of Shiva. That is why he is also known as destroyers but this demolition also leads to new creation. His name is also Shiva because whatever he does, he does for welfare. At different times,

Shiva has taken 19 avatar forms for the welfare of the universe. In which he killed the demons. In one of his incarnations, he appeared to kill the son of Lord Shri Vishnu.
Now why did he has to do this?

Or how such sons were born to Lord Vishnu that Shiva himself had to take incarnation to kill them? Let’s know
According to the Puranas, gods and demons churned the ocean(Samudramanthan) to produce nectar. After the churning of the ocean, a nectar urn was appeared .

Vishnu wanted to save it from the eyes of the demons. So he created many Apsaras(nymphs) with his illusion.

As soon as the demons saw the Apsaras(nymphs), they were fascinated by them and took them with forcely to Patal Lok (Hades).

After imprisoning the Apsaras in Patal lok(Hades), the demons came back with the aim of getting the Amrit Kalash (nectar urn).

But coming back, they saw that already all the deities had consumed nectar. Seeing this, the demons became very angry and they attacked the gods. But the god had become immortal by drinking nectar. Hence the demons faced defeat. They started running towards Patal lok (Hades) to secure themself.
With the intention of killing the demons, Shri Hari Vishnu went after them to Patal and destroyed all the demons there.

After the destruction of the demons, the Apsaras(nymphs) were freed.
When they saw Vishnu ji, they were fascinated by him and they asked Lord Shiva a boon to Vishnu to become his lord(Husband). Shivji gave the desired blessing to those Apsaras and asked Vishnu to stay in the Patal( Hades) with the Apsaras.

Following the orders of Shiva, Vishnu started living in the Patal Lok with the Apsaras. He received some sons from the Apsaras. But all his sons were of the demon nature. On the strength of himself cruelty, these sons of Shri Hari Vishnu created a furore in the three worlds. All the gods were troubled by their atrocities. Therefore they went to Lord Shiva and prayed him to kill the sons of Vishnu.
Hearing the prayers of the deities, Lord Shiva took the form of a bull i.e. ‘Vrishabh’. After taking the form of Vrishabh, Shivji reached Patal Lok and there he killed all the sons of Vishnu. When Vishnu reached there, he was very angry to see his lineage destroyed and he attacked Vrishabha but all his blows were fruitless.

Neither of the two had any loss nor any gain even after a long war. In the end, the Apsaras who tied Sri Hari Vishnu in their boon freed him. After this incident, when Shri Hari Vishnu realized this incident, he praised Lord Shiva. At the behest of Lord Shiva, Vishnu left the Patal(Hades) and returned to Vishnulok.
