4. Ma Dakshayani is the first avatar of Ma Parvati, who was born to Lord Daksha and Prasuti. She was a pious, chaste and a holy woman, who was also mentioned in the Vedas (10.72). She was also known as Sati, and she was married with Lord Shiva, and she was worshipped as an incarnation of Ma Shakti Devi. She was mentioned in the famous Devi Mahatmya Purana, and she is described as the universal mother.During the first Krita Yuga, Ma Sati was born as a child to Daksha, and she was considered as very favourite to her father Daksha, but when she married with Shiva against her father’s wishes, Lord Daksha began to disrespect her. Sati, from her childhood itself, developed great love and affection on Lord Shiva and became his ardent devotee. Sati didn’t like to enjoy the comforts and luxuries in her father’s palace and went to the forest and deeply meditated on Lord Shiva. After winning in the tests conducted by Lord Shiva, finally Lord Shiva had married her wholeheartedly.

Once when during a Yagna, when Daksha dishonoured her, and spoke badly about Lord Shiva, Sati self-immolated herself, and her body fell down in the earth, which was later known as Shakti Peetas. On knowing about this incident, Lord Shiva had become very angry with Daksha, and he had created Lord Veerabhadra, who went to the Yagna, and destroyed the Yagna and also removed the head of Lord Daksha. Later on the request of Daksha’s consort Prasuti, Veerabhadra placed a goat’s head on the body of Daksha, and restored back his life.In her next birth, Ma Sati was born as Parvati to Parvatha Raja and Mena, and after performing severe penance on Lord Shiva, she had married him, and went back to the Shiva Loka.

5. Dhuruva is a pious boy and due to his sincere meditation on Lord Vishnu, he has become a king after his father, and finally become a great DHRUVA star and controlling the sun, moon, stars and the planets through his great powers. This was made possible only because of his true devotion on Lord Vishnu.According to the legend, his father was Uttanapada and his mother was Suniti. Since his father had shown more attention to his new queen’s son, he was ignored, and he and his mother were not properly treated by his father. Hence due to that, he had performed severe penance and got great boons from Lord Vishnu. After completing his penance, he went to his palace, and due to the grace of Lord Vishnu, his father has changed his mind, and showed more love and affection on Dhuruva. He has become a king and ruled his kingdom properly by treating the people as his own sons, and gave much respect to them. Everyone loved him, and appreciated him for giving a GOLDEN RULE. After ruling the kingdom for several years, he and his mother have become stars, and still living in the Dhuruva Mandala, a star world containing all sorts of luxuries, and they would be permanently residing in the Loka even during the time of MAHAPRALAYAM, a great disaster to the entire universe, and there is no end for them.
