1. Siva and Parvati’s house

    Parvati, Shiva’s wife, never complained, but once she complained that she wanted a house to live in, since she had none. So Lord Shiva, to please her, gave her a golden house. Before they moved in they had, as is customary, an opening ceremony. Many rishis were called to conduct the ceremony. After the ceremony, it was customary that the Rishis be given a gift, or dakshina, mainly money. But Shiva didn’t have any money, and the only thing of any value he had there to give to the Rishi but the house, [sic] and so he gave it. Once again Parvati had to live under a tree, but she never complained again.
