The Shakti Peethas are divine places of the blessed Mother Goddess. To honor her and invite her to bless them, Lord Brahma performed a yajna with assistance from Shiva himself. When their ritual was complete, she manifested herself in the form of Sati and Daksha adopted her as his daughter. Sadly though, when Daksha hosted another yagna he refused to extend an invitation to Shiva; despite this slight, Sati desired so much to visit him that against his better judgement Shiva allowed it – yet unbeknownst to all at the time, this decision would have far-reaching consequences for every soul upon Terra’s plane. Daksha’s insult to Shiva caused Sati unbearable pain. Unable to take it any longer, she immolated herself in fury. In response, the wrathful form of Veerabhadra proceeded to destroy Daksha and his yagna ceremony. Grief-stricken by her daughter’s death, Lord Shiva carried Sati through Aryavartha while exhibiting an expression of anguish in the form of Tandava – a powerful dance that symbolized destruction and chaos. Lord Vishu, with the aim of stopping the Tandav, used his Sudarshana Chakra, which cut through the Sati’s corpse. The parts of Sati body fell at varroas spots all through the Indian and neighboring country and these Sacred sites came to be called Shakti Peethas .
