The Legend Associated With Mata Brahmacharini
The origin of Goddess Brahmacharini is rooted in different versions of tales from various mythological sources. One of such tales is associated with Mata Parvati when she resolved to marry none other than lord Shiva. Parvati’s parents tried to dissuade her from following her wish but Parvati had already made her mind and so, she sat on meditation for thousands of years until Lord Shiva became pleased with her determination and tenacity. Meanwhile, an incident also took place involving lord Kamadeva. He was requested by gods to lure Lord Shiva into liking Parvati. The gods devised this plan to wake up lord Shiva from his deep meditation so that he could kill a demon named Tarkasur who was protected by a boon of immortality until Lord Shiva killed him.
Unfortunately, the trick of lord Kamadeva didn’t work and in resulting effect, he was burnt to ashes by the third eye of Lord Shiva as a punishment of his audacity to disturb Shiva’s meditation. So, Parvati didn’t feel hopeless at the sudden turn of event, and kept attempting to win back Shiva. For this, she chose to live in the mountain abode of Lord Shiva and did all activities that Shiva did. Her ascetic pursuit and dedication was later interpreted as the deed of goddess Brahmacharini. The same virtue melted the heart of Shiva for Parvati. However, Shiva thought to test Parvati’s resolve one more time and met her in disguised form and tried to dissuade her from marrying Shiva but in vain. Suddenly, a demonnamed Prachandasur, with his army of demons, attacked Parvati who was just close to completing her tapasya. To rescue her, goddess Lakshmi and goddess Saraswati both joined in the fight against the demons. The fight between goddesses and demons continued for several days until water-filled kamandal/utensil kept near to meditative Parvati fell. The water took the form of dangerous deluge and washed away the army of demons. Prachandasur, the last one standing to be defeated burned to ashes by the third eye of Parvati. Such divine power she earned through years of meditation and eventually she was known as Devi Parvati. Lord Shiva accepted her as his wife.
