The First Love Marriage In The World
Shiva marriage was not an ordinary marriage. Shiva marriage was the culmination of love, dedication and tenacity. The world’s biggest love story fails in front of this story.
But this story is not of one birth. Even in her previous birth, Parvati was Shiva’s wife and was the daughter of Prajapati Daksha. Her name was Sati.
As per Puranas, Sati was the favourite child of Daksha and was married Shiva against her father’s wishes.
The conflict between Daksha and Shiva gets to a point where Daksha does not invite Shiva to his yagna (fire sacrifice).
When Sati comes on her own Daksha insults Shiva. Then Sati immolates herself at the ceremony.
This incident shocks Shiva, who is so grief-stricken and he loses his interest in worldly affairs and retires. And then he isolates himself in the mountains, in meditation and austerity.
After Sati’s death, she was reincarnated as Parvati. She was a beautiful daughter of Himavat (the god and king of the Himalaya mountains) and Mainavati. Whenever Sati sported in the mountains, Mena and Himavat used to take care of her.
Parvati was very well educated and beautiful. Since her childhood, she was passionately devoted to Lord Shiva.
Even she preferred praying to Lord Shiva, instead of playing with her friends.
Admirer came from different parts of the country to marry her. But Parvati rejected all of them.
She only wanted to marry Lord Shiva and no one else.
Hope now you got the answer to your question, who is the first love of Shiva? Its Sati.
1st Love Marriage In Other Histories
According to data from different sources across the globe, the first love marriage was conducted somehow in 2350 B.C. And, if compared to today, the incident of the first love marriage occurred about 4,350 years ago.
But, there are many controversies over it and there is no strong evidence about it as marriage was not a crucial matter in that ancient time.
According to data from Wikipedia, the concept of love marriage evolved around the year 1100 in Europe. But, there is strong evidence in a letter that tells that in Europe, the first love marriage occurred in 1140 AD.
Another data says that the great philosopher, Rousseau wrote in his book about the first love marriage in the world that happened in the 12th century.
It was about a philosopher who married his student – of course, it must be a love marriage, not an arranged one.
Now, let’s get back to the first love marriage of which we have already discussed above (that happened back in the past 2350 B.C.) was conducted in Mesopotamia.
It was situated in western Asia, near the river Tigris & Euphrates. It is now located in the region of the country Iran & Iraq.
There was no matter of religion, caste then. As these things got implemented into society, people tried to break the fence of barriers to these things. So the concept and as well as the number of love marriages began to grow.
Coming back to our original story of Lord Shiva and Devi Parvati again.
Shiva and Parvati are known as the first married couple in the universe as per Hindu mythology.
They created a devotional relationship whether it is love or devotional emotion.
It was the first instance of love marriage in history or mythology.
You may belong to any religion. All religions have their own philosophy. But, after going through this mythological story, you must recognize the inner beauty of love and marriage!
