..................................Story of Zeeba (Zipak).....................................

"The Zipak originates in a Shaivite legend from the Shandha Purana.
Shiva created a demon called Jalandhara from the blaze of his third
eye. Jalandhara assumed great power and desired an incestuous
relationship with Parvati, the consort of Shiva and Jalandhara's
adoptive mother. Jalandhara persuaded Rahu, one of his demonic
friends, to demand Parvati's favor. When Shiva got wind of this, he
was understandably outraged, so his third eye blazed again, thereby
creating the Zeeba, who made a beeline to devour Rahu. Rahu decided
that Zeeba was going to eat him bones and all and begged Shiva for
mercy; whereupon, Shiva offered forgiveness and called off Zeeba.
Because Zeeba had not had anything to eat since coming into the world
and had been deprived of his only prey, he turned on himself and
devoured his own body until only the head and hands remained.
Shiva was very pleased with his handiwork and invited Zeeba to
remain as the guardian to his door. Since then, he has become a
reminder of the consequences of gluttony and greed and also stands
as a guardian of practitioners. Zeeba's fingers point to his missing
body to show what can happen when someone is overcome by avarice."
