Story Of Birth Of Sage Durvasa And Arrow Of Shiva

There are three different stories in the Puranas regarding the birth of Sage Durvasa. The only common factor in all the three stories is that Lord Shiva is responsible for the birth of the Sage. One such story suggests that Durvasa was born from an arrow. Once, Shiva became so furious seeing the Adharma practiced by demons. His anger took the shape of an arrow and annihilated the demons. People were satisfied and happy with end of the rule of demons. But the arrow could not be stopped by humans, saints, or Devas. If not controlled, the arrow would destroy the universe. Devas prayed to Shiva to call back the arrow. Shiva then intervened and took back the arrow. It returned to the lap of Shiva. The arrow was then born as Sage Durvasa. As the arrow represents anger, Sage Durvasa became a fierce teacher who cursed anyone who crossed him.
