2. But, Sati, the daughter of Daksha and wife of Shiva, was still going to this yagna, without invitation. This was as she felt affection toward her parents.

7. And so, Veerbhadra was born. His nature was an aggressive and angry one. He became the destroyer of the Daksha Yagna.

9. After cutting the head of Daksha Prajapati, he came back to Kailash.
