    What are the implications of discovery of higgs boson particle on the general theory of relativity, especially on the definition of gravity part of it ?

    The Higgs mechanism (and boson) has been part of the standard model of particle physics. It has no direct relationship to general relativity. It gives certain particles mass, which then means they have a gravitational effect. If it had turned out that Higgs boson didn't exist, the particles would still have mass so GR would still be relevant. That would have had a huge effect on quantum physics though.
