    Story, Folklore, History

     

    The Birth of the Jasmine Blossom: Kama, the Indian God of Love, often adorns his arrows with fragrant flowers including jasmine blossoms to better pierce the hearts and desires of this targets. It is said in Hindu Mythology, that in a fight between Shiva and Kama (the God of Love), Kama dropped his bow and it broke into five pieces, each piece becoming different trees, one of which transforms into the five-petalled white Jasmine.
