The story behind the 2nd Day of Navratri
Sati who immolated herself in the Yogic fire again took rebirth as the daughter of the King of Mountains. She incarnated herself as the Goddess Parvati. When Ma Parvati grew up Sage Narada visited her and told her that she can again marry Lord Shiva who was her husband in the previous birth by observing penance. As Ma Parvati was determined to marry Lord Shiva, she observed penance with full devotion for thousands of years. For years, she ate only flowers, fruits, and vegetables. She used to sleep on the ground of the forests in an open sky. She followed the path of the Tapa for numerous years and thus, she was named Tapascharini or Brahmacharini (one who walks on the path of the most difficult path of Tapa and devotion).
