Continuing from today's (6/19) episode, once Baiju put down the Shiva linga that Ravan asked him to hold, the linga got transfixed there and Ravan failed to remove it. Mahadev appeared before him and thanked him for establishing the Vaijanath Shiva linga.
Having been freed of Ravan's clutches, Mahadev then appears in Kashi, where Gajdanav is tormenting the citizens. Mahadev hurls his trishul at Gajdanav, and the danav's soul appears out of the elephant, and thanks Mahadev for liberating him. Gajdanav tells him that it's always been his dream to be the cause of the establishment of a jyotirlinga. Mahadev tells him that that jyotirlinga will be known as Kritivaseshwar linga. Gajdanav is overjoyed.
Suddenly, another ghost appears. It is Jalandhar!!! He starts sobbing, and tells Mahadev, "See, what I told you before I died was correct!!! You never loved me. Every other demon that you slew, you immortalized their memory by establishing jyotirlingas in their name. Tarakasura, Gajdanav, you name him. Why, you even gave Ravan the honor of establishing a jyotirlinga, but you never did that for me. Why, why, why????!!!!!
Shiva tells him, "Jalandhar, you are a part of me. So every Jyotirlinga that exists is implicitly dedicated to you as well. Also, it's inappropriate of you to be jealous of lesser asuras since none of them had or have what you had - being a part of me. That's why they get jyotirlingas named after them so that people remember them when they visit these places. After all, they sacrificed their lives to get these Jyotirlingas dedicated to them"
Jalandhar tells him, "That's a real copout, Mahadev!!! Nobody prays to me or thinks of me when they visit any of your jyotirlingas. Given that I was your greatest challenger, I deserve better than what they have!!!"
Mahadev tells him, "Until you curb your envy of those other asuras or your resentment of me, you're getting squat!!!" Jalandhar's ghost screams, "You don't love me!!!! Aaahhh!!!" before getting trapped again inside Mahadev.
In the meantime, Ravan is sulking and walking back towards Lanka, when he encounter's Parashurama. Ravan mutters to himself how Shiva has betrayed him, and hearing that, a furious Parashurama swings his ax at Ravan, who manages to duck just in time. Ravan gets furious!!!
Parashuram screams at him, "How dare you insult my Mahadev? I'll show you" and swings his ax at him again, but Ravan again ducks.
Ravan now invokes his Chandrahaas and starts a huge fight w/ Parashurama. At Kailash, Kartikeya switches on his LCD big screen and Parvati, Nandi, Bhrigni, Ganesh and all the other Ganas gather around it, watching it w/ the fascination of watching an LPL game. At Vaikuntha, Vishnu, Lakshmi, Narada, Brahma and Saraswati are watching, and soon, the devas join them as well to witness this battle.
How does this battle b/w Ravan and Parashurama progress? Take it away from here!
