This entire universe has worshipped Vaishno Devi with full devotion from ancient times. At that time the greatest devotee of Mata rani was Shridhar. He was very poor and most of the times helpless and even in the case of starvation never forget to pray Vaishno Devi. While remaining in hunger he always offered food to Vaishno Devi. Influenced by his devotion Mata Vaishno Devi appeared before Shridhar and told him to organize a Bhandara. So after getting the instructions, Shridhar started to fulfil the order.
Shridhar started inviting people at every house in his locality. People were amazed to see that how this poor person will feed so many people. In between Bhairav Nath met him. Shridhar invited him also but due to arrogance, Bhairav Nath denied the invitation by saying that it is not in the capacity of Shridhar to feed him in a Bhandara. But after a few requests, Bhairav Nath agrees to come. Next day started in his home but Shridhar was in worry that how he would feed so many people in such little space and no money.
While Shridhar was thinking all this Mata Vaishno Devi arrived in his home in the form a little girl. As she entered his house the area of his house started to increase and within a few minutes, it became so big that the whole village was accommodated in his home. Mata arranged all the food and also served food for everyone. After some time Mata reaches to Bhairav Nath. Bhiarav Nath then demanded meat and alcohol instead of halwa poori. Mata asked him to accept the food which he was served.
