The Legend Of Goddess Siddhidatri

Eons back, the universe was a gigantic void filled with utter darkness all around. There was no life anywhere, except a divine and formless light illuminating the void. The light took the form of a Divine Lady known as goddess Mahashakti. She bred the Trinity of Gods known as Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh, instructing them to weigh in their respective roles and duties for the universe. Acting on her instructions, the gods performed hard penance for eons which appeared as goddess Siddhidatri. Two of her forms, like Lakshmi and Saraswati, became the wives of Brahma and Vishnu respectively. The third form was born Parvati. She asked Brahma to assume the role of creator of the universe, Vishnu as a role for preserving the creation and creatures of the universe while Lord Shiva was given the role to be destructor of the universe at an opportune time. The Trinity of Gods received eight supernatural powers from Mata Siddhidatri. Thus, with the help of Mata Siddhidatri, the Universe was fully created consisting of countless celestial bodies, flora and fauna, humans and so many other types of creatures.
