On the other side all the deer met in the cave and shared thier experiences and informed each other about their promise to the Hunter, They were all in a dilemma they were very determined about their promise but co incidently all three belonged to the same family. So the younger wife (deer) says to the elder wife (deer) “ You are an elder member of the family, You can look after family and hence you should live. Let me go to the hunter.” Listening to that the elder wife felt sheer pain and she said “No! I have lived my life long enough. You are young, you have many things to see and enjoy in the life. I shall go to hunter” Seeing both the wives willing to sacrifice. The Deer said “No, I am the head of the family and it is my duty to protect you all. I shall go.” Seeing the elders willing to sacrifice their life the baby deers start weeping, they said “we cannot live without anyone of you. Let us also die, we want to come along.” So family has decided let us all go to hunter and let him decide.
The entire family went to Gurudroh and told him about their problem. “ We cannot live without one another, so here we are you can kill all of us. we have kept our promise.” Gurudroh was moved seeing the sacrifice, love and truthfulness of the family. He felt pain in his heart and said to himself “what a harsh & brutal human I am. I am about to take lives of such nice, truthful and harmless creatures. His heart filled with love and kindness and he let go the deer family. Seeing grudroh’s love and kindness despite he was hungry from the last three days and yet performs pooja lord shiva appears to bless him and grant boon of his choice. Gurudroh whose heart is filled with love and affection asks for Lord Shiva’s devotion. Lord shiva fulfills his boon and says now onwards this shivalinga will be named after you as Druhishwar (now Duleshwar ) Mahadev. The story of mahashivaratri is the story of Duleshwar mahadev Arbudachal (Mt. Abu).
