‘Daughter of the Himalayas'
A long time ago in India the God Shiva was known as the controller of the cosmic forces while his wife ‘Paravatti’
was known as the spiritual healer of nature, and the loyal Nandi being servant of the gracious and mighty pair. Then one day
as Nandi was attending to his duties as gardener in the courtyard Paravatti came up to him asking if he'd keep a strict watch
on the house while she prepared some fragrant oils and incense for her bath, and not to let anybody enter without her permission.
The loyal Nandi was immediately turned to the attention of this new duty, and task when suddenly he saw his master “Shiva”
approaching thus asking to himself: "How shall the master of the house be kept from entering his own dwelling while still
carrying out the orders of my mistress Paravatti?"
So (as the story came to be), the lovely Paravatti's orders were immediately dismissed and dissolved at the approach of Shiva's
entourage perturbing the beloved Goddess that her orders were not carried out or commands obeyed as might've been expected
which was plainly told by the stodgily grin on her husband's face which was not up to par with the lovely Goddess's plan of
amusement or idea of certainty for the day at all. “The servants bestow their loyalty to Shiva first”, the lovely
Goddess thought to herself. "Shouldn't there be some-one to bestow their loyalty only to me?"
The next day while Paravatti was alone in the courtyard she took some milky oils from the divine powers of her countenance
and with the patience of wisdom, and kindness created a beautiful guardian boy to watch over her commands and be faithful
to her wishes. She looked lovingly upon the newly created Guardian as she smiled thoughtfully to herself saying: "Watch over
my commands that no one enters without permission!" The newly created guardian only smiled and responded by saying: "Thou
wish's my command!"
Not a few nights did pass until Shiva again arrived at his doorstep finding that he was blocked by the newly created guardian's
order of reproach, and command of forbidden entrance by the `enfamous lovely Goddess whose name's also known as Durga, “The
Daughter of the Himalayas". Such a bold refusal and order of reproach infuriated the thundering God of the cosmic forces who
responded by saying: "How dare you block the entranceway to my dwelling?” The newly created guardian only shrugged and
smiled by saying: "No one shall enter my Beloved Goddess mother's house with-out her permission!" Not believing what to make
of the situation ‘Shiva’ stormed off to find his loyal servant and companion ‘Nandi’ to help give
a lesson to this new upstart!
After taking a few Ganjas from the bulk of Shiva's army Nandi proceeded to attack the newly created guardian boy's post with
such a tremendous fury, and surge of force that all the grounds shook and the houses trembled and almost fell. But the newly
created guardian stood firm and was not dismayed by all the disruption, or the force of the attacks of the ensuing onslaughts,
or the ensuing force of the attacking onslaughts of the quays standing by his Goddess mother's order of reproach; and forbidden
entrance as the demons of the underground wondered in dismay as to the loyalty of the newly created companion's strength,
and faithfulness to the commands that his Goddess mother's orders be obeyed. The demons of the underground marveled at the
commotion, and wondered in dismay at the ensuing force of the unsuccessful onslaughts of the quays while the newly created
guardian stood faithfully by his Goddess mother's orders; as the armies of the Ganjas fell back into the retreat of their
own surrender, and great disarray. "Never was there such a thing", they reported back to Shiva. "He was so strong and very
The disruption of the ensuing onslaughts and the attack of the force of the onslaughts the quays had also attracted the attention
of the demigods of the underground and their spirit Gods of divinity who harmoniously choired: "This newly created spirit
God's of a divinity, as must be his orders!" The newly created guardian stood firm against all onslaughts of commotion, and
the ensuing focus of the onslaughts of the quays faithfully guarding his Goddess mother's order not to let anybody enter with-out
her permission and to faithfully obey. The ensuing disruption of the commotion, and the onslaughts of the ensuing focused
intrigue had also attracted the attention of the creator of the Universe "Brahma" whom honorably declared to all that would
listen: "Let's seek a solution to the dilemma of this situation by meditating on the tranquilities of the Universe and its
more peaceful rewards!" But, the great king's skill of meditative tranquility, and communicative advice came down upon deft
ears as the chastising with disdain of short and civil manner gave way to the infuriating of tempers amongst the loudest;
and bravest of Shiva's gainful and ill-gotten flairs. "Man thy weapons”, went the battle cry. And "Let no stone be left
unturned!” Around and around went the battle cry as the dilemma of the situation grew bolder; and all the infuriation
of its challenges and intrigue. While all along the mighty Paravatti was watching this situation from a distance and wondering
in bewilderment at the disruption and intrigue!
All along Paravatti was watching the situation and wondering at the dilemma of the onslaughts of disproportion, and the bewilderment
of the ensuing focus of intrigue, as the demons of the underground marveled at her newly created guardian's stance. The newly
created guardian was watchful of his commands to faithfully obey her wishes not to let anybody enter with-out permission.
All the heavens marveled as the lovely Goddess spoke: "Why go to such lengths for just one small boy?" The newly created guardian
was steadfast against all of the ensuing disruption and the attacks of the force of intrigue only shrugging any disproportion
or onslaughts of disruptive commotion staying faithful to the charge that his Goddess mother's orders be obeyed. "Why bring
so many onslaughts against just one small boy trying to prove your subjects of infidelities and lodgings?" The mighty Paravatti
then changed her demur into a focus of impersonal bliss while taking some herbs from the wealth of her countenance and with
the wisdom of kindness, and patience of love created two more Goddess warriors to swallow up the armies of disruption, and
to help with the destruction of the weapons of mass confusion, and disarray. While the magic formed by the lovely Goddess
warriors that were created by the Goddess Paravatti was so powerful they formed the mountains of the Himalayas from where
the armies of the Ganjas were swallowed up, and to this day the mountains are known as “The Unmovable Ones!"
