Legend of Kamadeva’s sacrifice

After Lord Shiva’s wife, Sati, died because her father had insulted her husband, Shiva renounced the world and sat in a terrible meditation. Soon the world fell out of balance. Sati was reborn as Parvati but she couldn’t penetrate Shiva’s trance. So she asked Kamadeva, the God of love, to shoot his love arrow at Shiva. Angered, Shiva opened his third eye and burned Kamadeva. But later, he granted the love god immortality. This is why Holi is seen as Kamadeva’s sacrifice.
