Story of Mother Siddhidatri

Lord Shiva also received many spiritual powers or achievements with the help of Mother Siddhidatri. It was with the grace of the Mother that Mahadev's half-body transformed into a Goddess and he became famous as Shiva Ardhanareshwar(half-woman). According to Shiva Purana, Lord Brahma, the creator of the Universe, noticed that the number of animals, birds and humans was not growing. According to Akashwani, then Brahmaji vowed to create a maithuni (reproduction)of the Universe. When Brahma asked Lord Vishnu about this, he asked Brahama to worship Lord Mahadev.

After this Brahmaji practiced penance to satisfy Shiva with Shakti. Parmatma Shiva was satisfied with the penance of Brahmaji, who came to  him by assuming the form of Ardhanareshvar(halfman and half woman). After this, he separated the part of the goddess power from his body. Then Brahmaji praised and honoured that supreme Shakti. Being pleased with the praise of Brahma, Shakti created another power like her own, who, was born as Himalaya's daughter Parvati, and met Mahadev.
