Why Chandramaa Has Kalaa (Phases)?
Much grieved and depressed at heart, Chandramaa at last made his way to Lord Shiv and prayed to be saved from the curse of Daksh. The Lord, out of compassion, retrieved him partially from the curse and saved him by wearing him on his own forehead. Hence we find changes in the phases of the Moon - gradual decrease of brightness during Krishn Paksh or the dark fortnight, and the gradual increase during the Shukla Paksh or the bright fortnight. This action of Lord Shiv further infuriated Daksh.
Why Chandramaa is called Chandaa Maamaa?
