Lord Shiva in the form of Pashupatinath, carved out of yellow jade.
Legend says, Shiva and Parvati came to the Kathmandu Valley and rested by the Bagmati while on a journey. Shiva was so impressed by its beauty and the surrounding forest that he and Parvati changed themselves into deers and walked into the forest. Many spots in the Kathmandu Valley are identified as places where Shiva went during his time as a deer. After awhile the people and gods began to search for Shiva. Finally, after various complications, they found him in the forest, but he refused to leave. More complications ensued, but ultimately Shiva announced that, since he had lived by the Bagmati in a deer's form, he would now be known as Pashupatinath, Lord of all Animals. It is said that whoever came here and beheld the lingam that appeared there would not be reborn as an animal.
Yellow Jade is cheerful and energetic, a stone of assimilation and discrimination. It brings joy and happiness. Teaches the interconnectedness of all beings. Yellow Jade aids the digestive and elimination systems of the body.
