Significance of  Yashore Shaktipeeth, Bangladesh

Then Laxman Sen and Pratap Aditya renovated it in their period. Now there's worship on Saturday and Tuesday afternoon. But before 1971, there was day by day worship here. Yearly a festival is organized right here on the day of Kali Puja.

A fair can be organized here on this event. A large rectangle was earlier an exquisite platform near the temple itself. This platform was covered from above. It is called the Nat Temple. The idol of Sati Mata could be seen while standing here.

Historical belief

According to the Puranas in Hinduism, wherever the body parts of Goddess Sati, together with ornaments, became their Shaktipeeth. These Shaktipeeths are called very holy shrines, which are spread everywhere in the Indian subcontinent. These Shaktipeeths are very ambitious religiously. The Devipuran describes 51 Shaktipeeths.

Yashore Shaktipeeth is one of the 51 Shaktipeeths. According to spiritual texts, parts of Goddess Sati fell at all these places. According to the legend, a yajna was organized by King Daksha, father-in-law of Lord Shiva, by which King Daksha did not ship invites to Lord Shiva and Mother Sati because King Daksha was not thinking of Lord Shiva as his equal..

Mother Sati found it very bad. She reached the yagna without calling. At the place of sacrifice, Lord Shiva was insulted a lot which Mata Satibhuti could not do and she added Kumari to the Havan Kund there.

Lord Shankar came to know about this, after which he reached there and took out the body of Mata Sati from Havan Kund and began doing Tandava, which caused an uproar in the entire universe. To save your entire universe from this crisis, Lord Vishnu divided the body of Mata Sati into 51 parts from his Sudarshan Chakra, the limb where it fell became the Shakti Peetha. The "arms and feet soles" of Mother Sati fell in Yashore Shaktipeeth. Here the mother's sati is known as Sh Yashoreshwari and Lord Shiva as 'Chanda' (Chandra).
