impudent Daksha felt wounded and nurtured ill-will against him. He
ill-treated his own daughter Sati, given in marriage to Lord Siva -
her in not inviting to any function, or ceremony gaily participated
by all of his daughters to whom he was sending invitations with due
honours. And used to fittingly reward them with presents etc. In
addition, he invited Mukkotidevathas to a great yagna he performed,
except Lord Siva, though he was his son-in-law, besides entitled a
share in the yagna phala. Its ulterior motive was to dishonor Lord
Siva openly. Learning about the performance of yagna, Sati
approached her Lord for permission to attend it, though uninvited.
The Lord acquainted her with the deep motive of her father and
dissuaded her from attending. Under the plea that she would teach
her father a lesson on the right conduct, she grew adamant and left
for yagna much against the will of her Lord.
