I would love to know the source from where they are getting the stories from. I want to see how authentic this story of Daksh making the Vishnu Shayan murti is.

I do love how Sati found the Rudraksh in the river, which came from Shiv Shambhu himself, but I highly doubt that this actually happened... Confused

@sana141994 - that article isn't a very nice one, doesn't describe things in a nice way. Calling Shiv Shankar "the Ultimate Loose Cannon" is rude and bad, "
When he is not in meditation he is roaming around the universe with a set of hell raisers" is horrible to describe the Shivgan, "Shiva mentally renounced his wife for this act of disobedience. So there! The feisty and troublesome woman is put in her place!" how much of this is true?

If one is going to copy things from Wiki or anywhere else, I think a link to those places should be provided, so that one knows where they are coming from.

Incidentally, can anyone tell me who Khyatti married?  Since all of Daksha's daughters were married to various devas.

please quote the source if someone is indeed posting something...
@sattvik-the chances of something  like that happening are less likely...to be honest its very filmy,but i guess they should get some creative liberty,so long as it doesn't damage the actual story line of the show...

Raja Daksh said in one of the episodes that Lord Shiva banned his father Lord Bramha from being worshiped
can anyone tell me why did Lord Shiva do such a thing?

It may be Diti. M. Kashyap mariied Adit & Diti along with other daughters of Daksh except Swaha, who married Agni.
Aditi's children were devas ( Indra etc.), Diti's children were daityas.

In the ACK (Amar Chitra Katha) Elephanta, I read about this.  The story is that Brahma & Vishnu were debating on who is superior, and so, suddenly, a huge tower of light appeared that seemed to have no beginning nor end.  They decided to settle this by finding out the starting points of this tower.  Vishnu took the same form as he did as Varaha, and started digging the earth, hoping to find its root, while Brahma took the form of a kraucha (heron) and decided to fly up and find the apex.

Neither succeeded, but when they returned, Vishnu conceded, while Brahma falsely claimed that he did indeed find the apex.  At this, Mahadev suddenly appeared and cursed Brahma that due to his lie, and that too for purely egotistical purposes, nobody would worship him.  Whereas, Vishnu, for being truthful, would be worshipped along w/ Shiva.  The tower that was there  came to be representative of Mahadev, which is why a lingam is always used.

I have no idea about what the ACK uses for its sourcing, but this partly seems to explain why there are no temples of Brahma, except for the one in Pushkar, in Rajasthan.  I've also read that somewhere in Bangkok too, there is a temple dedicated to Brahma.

One thing that struck me about the episodes in DkDM is the insistence that a lingam be available to enable the worship of Lord Narayan.  I've never seen this in any puja where Narayan is invoked.

@Vrish thanks for the explanation...
in our house we do install a small lingam for every pooja,even a satyanarayan katha,,but we are basically Shaivaites(worshipers of Shiva)-so i guess that is why we do it that way...
