History of virabhadrasana (i) or warrior pose (i)

Dsksa once celebrated a great sacrifice, but he did not invite his daughter Sati nor her husband Siva , the chief of the gods , Sati , howevre , went to the sacrifice , but being greatly humiliated and insulted threw herself into the fire and perished. When Siva heard this he was gravely provoked, tore a hair from his matted locks and threw it to the ground . A powerful hero named Virabhadra rose up and awaited his orders. He was told to lead Siva's army against Daksa and destroy his sacrifice. Virabhadra and his army appeared in the midst of Daksa's assembly like a hurricane and destoyed the sacrifice, routed the other gods an d priests and beheaded Daksa. Siva in grief for Sati withdrew to kailas and plunged into meditation . Sati was born again as Uma in  the house of Himalaya. She strove once more for the love of Siva and ultimately won his heart. The story is told by Kalidasa in his great poem Kumara sambhava ( The Birth of the War-Lord). This asana is dedicated to the powerful hero created by Siva from his matted hair.
