Why did Shiva let Sati die?We all know that Shiva roams in Himalayas, unattached from worldly affairs. He sees indifference in everything. He can drink milk and poison alike. Happiness and sadness are same for him.
He isn't bound by time, as he sits outside the space-time. So he has seen infinite worlds come and go. He can see past and future at the same time.
So when Sati went to Daksha's famous yagna, Shiva must be knowing beforehand what is going to occur. But he stayed still till Sati mortified herself by being burnt alive.
Although being asked about it many spiritual gurus say, " It is a testimony of their divine love".
But how? Why would someone let his love die? And there isn't even any moral behind this story.
As a conclusion, Sati's body was mutilated into 52 pieces and scattered all over India (then).
So, why didn't Shiva see this coming? Or did he stay motionless on purpose? If yes, what purpose could it be?
