Maa Shailputri Katha
Maa Shailputri is worshiped with rituals on the first day of Navratri. Mother’s vehicle is Vrishabha (bull). Maa Shailputri is said to be the daughter of Himalayaraj mountain. There is a legend behind this, once Prajapati Daksha (Father of Sati) invited all the gods during the Yagya. He did not send invitations to Lord Shiva and Sati. But Sati was ready to go to the yagya without invitation. In such a situation, Lord Shiva explained to him that it is not right to go to the Yagya without invitation. But if Sati did not agree, Lord Shiva allowed her to go.
Sati reached her father’s place uninvited and she had to face uninvited guest behavior. Apart from her mother, no one spoke to Sati properly. Sisters also continued to ridicule in the Yagya. She could not tolerate such harsh behavior and insult to her husband and got angry. And in this anger, guilt and anger, he burnt himself in the yajna. As soon as Lord Shiva got this news, he sent his Ganas to Daksha and destroyed the Yagya going on in his place. In the next life she was born as the daughter of Himalaya, she is called Shailputri. And on the first day of Navratri, Shailputri Maa is worshipped.
