YAKṢEŚVARA - यक्षेश्वर

See also:  यक्षेश्वर
An incarnation of Śiva. The devas were puffed with pride when they secured Amṛta by churning the ocean of milk. In order to allay their pride, Śiva took birth as Yakṣeśvara. One day he put a blade of grass on the ground before them and asked them to take it up. Although the Devas tried their best, they were not able even to move it. It was only then that they became convinced of their own incapacity. [Śiva Purāṇa, Śatarudra Saṁhitā].
