52 Shakti Peetha of Maa Durga
 
In
Satya Yuga
,
Daksha
performed a
yagna
with a desire of taking revenge on 
.
Daksha
was angry because his daughter
Sati
had married 
 against hiswishes. Daksha invited all the deities to the
yagna
except for Shiva and Sati. The fact thatshe was not invited did not deter Sati from attending the
yagna
. But
Sati
, being anuninvited guest, was not given any respect. Furthermore,
Daksha
insulted Shiva. Sati was
unable to bear her father’s insults toward her husband, so she committed suicide by
 jumping into the pyre. When Lord Shiva heard about her death he became furious. He wentto the place where Daksha was performing his yagna and destroyed the area. Daksha was
killed by Shiva’s ganas.Lord Shiva then carried Sati’s body all over the world in a state of wild grief. At the request
of all other gods, 
 
severed Sati’s body into
52 pieces
with his
SudarshanChakra
, so that Lord Shiva could return to his sanity and once again take up his duties.
Various parts of Sati’s body fell at diff 
erent places which became known as
ShaktiPeethas
. At all Shakti Peethas, the Goddess Shakti is accompanied by
Lord Bhairava
(amanifestation of Lord Shiva).
