Shakti Peethas                 Shakti Stotra




Information


51 Shakti Peethas are the "Holy places of cosmic power".These shrines are consecrated to the Gddess Sati,the first incarnation of Goddess,Parvati.The legend is that,the great king Daksha Prajapati,an ancient creator god, was angry because his daughter Sati had married Lord Shiva against his wish and when Daksha entered the marriage ceremony,everyone stood up in respect,other than Shiva.

In Satya Yuga, Daksha performed a yagna with an intension of taking revenge on Lord Shiva. Daksha invited all the Gods to the yagna ceremony and did not invite Lord Shiva and Sati.However,Shiva allowed Sati to attend the Yagna,alogwith his escorts.Since Sati was univited guest,she was not paid any attension and was totally neglected by all.

Further,Daksha uttered insultings words for Shiva.Sati could not tolerate her husband's insult by her father. Sati,due to the unbearable insult,jumped in to the pyre and committed suicide.On hearing this tragic news,Lord Shiva became furious.Soon,he reached to the place of Daksha's yagna and destroyed the whole area.While Daksha was killed by Shiva's ganas.
 

In a disturbed state of mind,Lord Shiva carried Sati's body and started the tandav dance of destruction,all over the world .All the terrorised and worried gods, requested Lord Vishu to take necessary action.Immediately,Lord Vishnu,with his Sudarshan Chakra,severed Sati's body into 51 parts,so that Lord Shiva could return to his sanity and once again take up his duties.

Various parts of Sati's body fell at different places,across the Indian sub-continent,forming holy shrines of cosmic power.which became well known as Shakti Peethas.It is beleived that,at all Shakti Peethas,the Goddess Shakti is accompanied by Lord Bhairava,a manifestation of Lord Shiva.
