Devotees call Maa Shailaputri with names like Sati, Bhavani, Parvati, or Hemavati. According to Hindu mythology, in her previous birth, Sati’s father Daksha Prajapati was a proud king who never accepted her decision of marrying Lord Shiva. He organised a Yagya and didn’t invite Lord Shankar and when Sati reached to question him, he insulted her husband. Sati couldn’t tolerate her husband’s insult and immolated herself.
