Story - Demon Vidunga Got Salvation Listening To Shiva Purana

Demon Vidunga lived in the Vindhyas and he was undergoing numerous troubles. Mother Goddess Parvati felt pity on the demon and asked Tumburu, a Gandharva, to chant chapters from the Shiva Purana to the demon.

Tumburu and Chanchula, an attendant of Goddess Parvati and wife of the demon, went to the Vindhyas and found the demon to be horrible and terrible.

The demon possessed a huge body and used to laugh, weep and jump. His appearance too was horrible.

Tumburu tied the demon with strong rope and narrated to him the sacred Shiva Purana.

Thousands of saints, seers and people too assembled to hear the Purana.

Having heard the scared purana, the demon attained salvation and dropped his demonic existence. He assumed a divine form.

Shiva who came to know about the incident gave a respectable place to Vidunga among His attendants.
