According to the first legend, after Shivas wife Sati immolated herself, she was reborn as Parvati. Parvati tried hard to break Shivas meditation and win his attention - who had entered into the mode of penance since the incident. It is said that Parvati sought the help of Kamadeva - the God of Love and Passion who asked her to dance in front of Shiva. While she was dancing, Kaamadeva shot his arrow of passion at Shiva, but this infuriated Shiva all the more.Later, Parvati undertook severe penance to win over Shiva and was finally able to lure him into marriage through her devotion. Their marriage was sanctified a day before Amavasya in the month of Phalgun. This day of union of God Shiva and Parvati is celebrated as Mahashivratri every year.

The Puranas repeatedly tell the tale of Sati's marriage to Shiva against her father Daksha's wishes and her subsequent self-immolation at Daksha's sacrifice, leaving Shiva grief-stricken and having lost interest in worldly affairs. In the Brahma Vaivarta Purana, Sati, as well as Parvati, are considered manifestations of Mahadevi, the great Goddess. In the Ramayana, the river goddess Ganga is depicted as the elder sister of Parvati.
The depiction of Parvatis marriage to Shiva, in the Shiva Purana, could be seen as an allegory illustrating the desire of an individual to achieve a state of liberation from a life of strife and banality. If one sets aside, for the moment, the idea of Shiva as a male entity, and sees him instead as representing a state beyond human suffering, then Parvati becomes symbolic of the aspirant who wishes to achievenirvana, and the story becomes something considerably more than a quaint romantic tale.
