A Summary of the Srimad Bhagavata Mahapuranam-4.6.



4.The Stories of Siva and Sati, and Rishabhadeva and Bharata-6.

Sati stood up, and loudly proclaimed in a ferocious language, “Due to the impropriety of this yajna where the great master Siva is not invited, it cannot be called a divine sacrifice when the chief divinity is not present. Fie upon all you gods!

Shamelessly you have attended the yajna of this irresponsible Daksha, whom I no longer regard as my father. Siva is being disrespected.

The two words ‘si’ and ‘va’ are sufficient to give salvation to people, and such a divinity is being disregarded here.

Is this a divine sacrifice?

Are you gods?

Have you any sense?

Daksha did not invite Lord Siva, and you come and sit here at the feet of this terrible person whom I shamelessly called father.

I am very sorry that I was born to him.”
