Lord Shiva is very popular among sages and recluses (Vairagi), he is married and has a complete family.
Lord Shiva has a wife- Mother Parvati, the Goddess of the Universe, and he also has several children. So Lord Shiva has six children: three sons and three daughters.
Lord Shiva has three daughters: Ashokasundari, Manasa, and Jyoti. And his daughters are still worshipped in many parts of the country. Let’s know about the Daughters of Lord Shiva in detail.
1. AshokasundariAshoksundari is one of the most famous Lord Shiva’s daughters. She is also Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati’s first daughter. The story of Goddess Ashokasundari is mentioned in Padma Purana.
2. JyotiGoddess Jyoti is Lord Shiva’s second daughter. She is known as the Goddess of Light, as Jyoti means Light. Though there is no confirmation about how she was born, most people believe she represents Lord Shiva’s Grace.
3. ManasaThe story of Goddess Manasa, who is Lord Shiva’s third daughter, is very interesting. The Goddess was born when Lord Shiva’s semen touched a statue carved by Kadru-mother of snakes. So Goddess Manasa is Lord Shiva’s daughter, but she has no direct relationship with Mother Parvati.
