Did you know it was Lord Shiva who consumed the poison 'Halahala' to save the mankind in Shravan Month?
During Samudra Manthan, the ocean produced lots of valuables such as gemstones, cows, bows, the Moon, conch etc. which were taken up by Gods and demons. Fourteen different gems emerged from the ocean and were divided amongst them. When the Ocean produced the deadliest poison called Halahala, all of them cringed back as it was too dangerous to destroy the universe. It was Shiva who decided to drink it to save the world. When Parvati saw him taking Halahala, she at once held his throat so that the poison wouldn’t go down. As a result, his throat turned blue and thus he was given the name Neelkantha.
