Shri Devi Dakshayani Mata - Lassurgaon, MAHARASTRA

Satī ( सती, satī), also known as Dakshayani ( दाक्षायणी, dākṣāyaṇī ), is a Hindu goddess of marital felicity and longevity. An aspect of Devi, Dākshāyani is the first consort of Shiva, the second being Parvati, the reincarnation of Sati herself. In Hindu legend, both Sati and Parvati successively play the role of bringing Shiva away from ascetic isolation into creative participation in the world. The act of Sati, in which a Hindu widow immolates herself on her husband's funeral pyre as a final and consummate act of loyalty and devotion, is patterned after the deed committed by this goddess to uphold the honour of her husband.

The Goddess, took human birth at the bidding of the god Brahma. Sati was born as a daughter of Daksha Prajapati and his wife Prasuti. Daksha was a son of Brahma and a great king and magnate in his own right. The girl was named Gauri, "the turmeric-hued one," since she was fair-skinned, with a golden turmeric-colored hue, was a blonde and had blue eyes. As the daughter of Daksha, she is also known as Dakshayani. She is also called Satī (Devanagari: सती, the feminine of sat "true"). By this logic, Sati is grand-daughter of Brahma by Daksha, but is also great grand-daughter of Brahma because Prasuti is daughter of Manu (Manu is son of Brahma).  Dākshāyani was reborn as Parvati, daughter of Himavat, king of the mountains, and his wife, the Devi Mena. This time, she was born the daughter of a father whom she could respect, a father who appreciated Shiva ardently. Naturally, Pārvatī sought and received Shiva as her husband. This legend appears in detail in Tantra literature, in the Puranas and in Kālidāsa's lyrical Kumārasambhavam, an epic that deals primarily with the birth of Kartikeya.
