Due to misconceptions and demands of time, Shiva was cursed by number of sages and saints.


Curse of Prajapati Daksha

Prajapati Daksha was the son of Brahma Dev. In the beginning of the world, Shiva cursed Brahma dev that He will never be worshiped and later Shiva cut one out of 5 heads of Brahma.

But with the efforts of Narayana and Brahma, the curse got lifted.
