[quote]The Shakti Peetha (Sanskrit: शक्ति पीठ, Śakti Pīṭha, seat of Shakti) is a places of worship consecrated to the goddess Shakti or Sati, the female principal of Hinduism and the main deity of the Shakta sect.[/quote]

When Sati, the wife of Shiva and the first incarnation of Parvati, sacrificed herself at a yagna being performed by her father the King Daksha; a very distraught Shiva started dancing with her body. The world was terrorized from this Tandava Nritya and to stop the devastating penance, Vishnu used his Sudarshan chakra (the whirling knife on his finger tip) and completely cut up Sati’s body in several pieces. Wherever her body parts felt, a temple was erected to commemorate different manifestations of Shiva and Parvati and became a Hindu pilgrimage. They are called Pitha or Sakti Peethas.

Lord Krishna

Lord Krishna

Krishna is a deity worshiped across many traditions in Hinduism in a variety of perspectives. While many Vaishnava groups recognize him as an avatar of Vishnu, other traditions within Krishnaism consider Krishna to be svayam bhagavan, or the Supreme Being. We are very beginning from the birthplace of lord Krishna. Mathura is the birthplace of lord Krishna. The city of Mathura is located in the western part of the state of Uttar Pradesh, in the northern region of India. It is situated on the bank of the river Yamuna.

As per the bhagavatam, Krishna had 16,108 wives, of which eight were chief – including Rukmini, Satyabhama and Jambavati. Now in many Islamic forums, I see a post saying that Krishna was a sex addict or a playboy by citing example of 16,108 wives. Instead of finding out the real truth, they make their own assumptions so as to ridicule Hinduism. So, in this article, we will see why he had 16, 108 wives.

The epic, Ramayana was written by Maharishi Valmiki. As per the epic Dasharatha, the king of Ayodhya had three wives named Kausalya, Sumitra and Kaikeyi in the Treta Yuga. Even after his marriage to three women, Dasharatha was childless for a long time. Rishi Vasishtha suggested him to perform Putra Kameshti Yagna to fulfill his desire of having a child. It was because of this Yagna Lord Rama was born to Kausalya and King Dasharatha. In Hindu Mythology it is believed that whenever there is an eruption of evil power in Earth, Lord Vishnu takes birth on Earth. During this period when Rama was born in Ayodhya the demon Ravana was trying to spread Adharma in Earth. The birth of Lord Rama was celebrated with great passion as the knowledgeable persons of that time visualized that the child born at Ayodhya is not an ordinary child.
