EPISODE 112- 24 April,2012
Lord Brahma's four sons demand that they get their seats in the North direction because they say that the South direction represents death. Lord Shiva agrees to their demands and sits in the South direction. Goddess Saraswati is appointed the judge for the debate between Lord Shiva and Lord Brahma's sons. Prasuti is scared and tells Aditi if Daksh constrains Lord Shiva too much, he would lose his temper. The debate starts and the four ask Shiva to prove his worth in the knowledge of Vedas. Lord Shiva quotes some verses and explains their meaning, but the four are still not convinced. They say that the Vedas are the words of their father Brahma himself. But Lord Shiva points out that if Brahma has four mouths, then how come there are only three Vedas. Lord Shiva then explains that at the beginning of this age, a demon named Haigriv stole the Vedas for himself. The gods had succeeded in obtaining all except Atharva Veda from him. Then Haigriv went under Shiva's protection. Due to having had the Vedas in him, Shiva had granted a boon to Haigriv that he would be Rishi Atharva in his next birth and would give literary form to Atharva Veda. The four call Lord Brahma to confirm this. Lord Brahma comes and orders his sons to accept Rishi Atharva's collection as the fourth Veda. Saraswati requests a boon from Lord Shiva that she may be the first one to take Shiva and Sati's son in her lap. Lord Shiva complies. Daksh's brothers apologize to Sati and accept Atharva Veda as the fourth Veda. While Daksh's brothers praise Mahadev, Daksh curses them and turns them into small kids. Chitrasur plays his game and confuses Sati by being in disguise of Lord Shiva.
