Mythology of Devi Shailaputri

Sati was born to Prajapati Daksha who was a son of lord Brahma. He never wanted his daughter sati to marry lord shiva, he considered shiva a dirty ascetic. Sati disobeyed her father and married Shiva and left her father.

Once, Dakshya organised a grand yagna and called upon all gods to attend these yagna.

He did not invite sati and shiva for this ceremony. Sati, who wanted to visit her home for a long time, heard of this ceremony and decided to go even though she was uninvited.

Lord shiva tried to stop sati as he knew the nature of her father. Sati ignored and still went to the ceremony. She felt uninvited by relatives, none of them were happy to see her, including her father. Sati felt a great sense of pain and her father insulted shiva in front of sati and guests. This was too much for sati to bear. In such a grief sati jumped into the sacrificial fire of maha yagna.

News of Devi’s self-immolation reached lord shiva. Angered Shiva went to the ceremony and cut off the daksha’s head and destroyed the ceremony. He carried the half-burnt corpse of sati. The part of sati fell over places and these places came to be known as Shakti peethas; there are 52 Shakti peethas as of now.
