History Dev Diwali 2022
Legend has it that the demon Tarakasura had three sons: Tarakasksha, Vidyunmail, and Kamalasksha. The fervent penance of Lord Brahma blessed them all. Their devotion touched Lord Brahma, who bestowed upon them immortality. The universal rule protected them, and Lord Brahma gave them the blessing that a single arrow could only slay them. Demons then caused commotion and destruction. Lord Shiva decided to approach this on his terms. He adopted the Tripurari or Tripurantaka persona. He eradicated the devils with a single arrow and spread joy and harmony to the entire world.
Importance of Dev Diwali festival:
Tarakaksha, Vidyunmali, and Kamalaksha were the three sons of a demon named Tarakasura. And the group had made a sincere effort to obtain Lord Brahma’s blessings. The trio requested the blessing of immortality as Lord Brahma appeared in front of them, pleased by their devotion. However, because the blessing went against the principles of the cosmos, Brahma declined to bestow it.
Instead, he gave them a boon that guaranteed they wouldn’t perish until all three of them were shot with a single arrow. After receiving Brahma’s blessing, the trio threatened civilization and wreaked havoc in the three worlds.
Because of this, Lord Shiva assumed the form of Tripurari or Tripurantaka and used a single arrow to dispatch all three demons. Thus, Lord Shiva brought about peace by vanquishing Tripurasura.
