SPITTING OUT A TERRIBLE AND A MOST DEADLY POISONOUS

GAS CALLED ”HALAHALA”.LORD SHIVA CONSUMED THE ENTIRE

SMOKE ,HIS CONSORT PARVATHI STOPPED IT THERE BY

TIGHTLY HOLDING  SHIVAS THROAT FOR SAME TIME.THE

BLUISH POISON STAYED THERE AND THE LORDS NECK TURNED

BLUE. AFTER CONSUMING THE POISONOUS SMOKE AND

HANDING OVER THE POT  OF AMRUTHA TO THE DEVAS,LORD
