Pashupat weapon to Arjuna


 Lord Shri Krishna told Arjuna, you go to Shankarji. Shankarji has a divine eternal weapon named Pashupat. With which he had killed all the demons in the past.

Get up, take a rest and tell me what you want. Hearing this talk of Lord Shiva, both Shri Krishna and Arjun stood with folded hands and started praising him.


  Arjuna worshiped both in his mind and said to Shankarji, Lord, I want your divine weapon. Hearing this, Lord Shankar smiled and said that there is a divine lake nearby, I have placed bow and arrows there. Saying very well, both of them reached near that lake and went there and saw that there were two snakes. Both the serpents turned into bow and arrow. After this, taking bow and arrow, both Krishna and Arjuna came to Lord Shankar and offered him. A celibate was born from the rib of Lord Shankar, who offered the bow with chanting of mantras, Arjun remembered that mantra and Shankarji was pleased and gave that weapon to Arjuna. Arjun had seen all this in his own dream.
