History of Kamakhya Devi
As per the mythology, Lord Shiv was not invited by his father-in-law to attend that Yagnya which was attended by all Gods and Goddesses.
Mata Sati had sacrificed her life in the Yagnya of her father as she was unable to bear the insult of her husband in the presence of all Gods and Goddesses.
After knowing about the death of Maa Sati angry Shiv started doing Tandav, the dance of destruction, holding his dead wife on his shoulders. That created fear in the entire universe and all Gods requested Lord Vishnu to stop Lord Shiva’s Tandav.
To save this universe from Lord Shiva’s anger Vishnu sent his Sudarshan chakra to cut Sati’s body into pieces. While cutting the body of Mata Sati it fell in 51 different places all over the world.
Mata’s Yoni had fallen in Kamakhya and for that reason, Maa Kamakhya is known as the symbol of women power and energy.
