Mother Mahagauri story

Mother Maha Gauri had done harsh struggle and penance to get Lord Shiva as her husband, with this her body had turned black. Mahadev was pleased with her penance and accepted her prayer. Because her body has turned black by penance, Mahadev washed it with gangajal, it became fair again. That's why she is called Gauri. For this reason, it is said that fasting on the Ashtami day, gives devotees their desired life partner.

Apart from this, another story of Mahagauri is also prevalent. According to this, when Mother Uma was doing penance in the forest, then a hungry lion was roaming in the forest. Searching for food, he reached near the spot where the Mother was deeply absorbed in meditation. Seeing the Goddess, the appetite of the lion increased and the lion waited for her to complete her meditation. Due to the waiting, he became very weak. When the goddess woke from her penance, seeing the lion's condition, she had great pity on him. Mother took the lion her ride and in a way, the lion had also practised penance with Mother. Therefore, Goddess Mahagauri's vehicles are both bull and lion.
