In a deserted forest, Parvati again started penance. By making a Shivling out of sand, he started worshiping while keeping a waterless fast. Shiva appeared pleased with the penance and promised to fulfill his wish. In the meantime, the father also reached the Himalayas, who after knowing about Parvati’s mind agreed to get her married to Lord Shiva. After this, by law, Shiva was married to Parvati. Shiva said ‘O Parvati! It is only because of the strict fast that you had done that we have been able to get married.
