Acquainted with its efficacy, Mother Gouri desired to learn it from her Lord itself. But she forgot that all are not fit to receive, much less aspire or practise it; only those endowed with Satthwic nature are eligible and they alone can practise-repeating it fifty lacs of times with utmost concentration. Lord Siva tried to convince of her ineligibility,  as she was of Rajasic nature out and out, and proud of  her blooming beauty and transitory charms. So under serving.  When her adamancy reached the peak, Lord Siva cursed her to turn ugly and wander on earth with every conceivable misery attending on her. Her tearful prayer for redemption melted the All-merciful Lord and directed her to go to Kalahasti for doing penance, and only then she would be fit to receive that all potent mantra.

Accordingly, Mother Gowri descended; and with the timely guidance of Narada and Vinayaka reached Kalahasti. Giving up her divine body, she started penance in the earthly mortal frame. Before commencing, she bade her divine aspect Durga, the most frightful to ward off all the untoward that might likely visit to frustrate the attempt. Taking her seat on the mount nearby, he did what was bid.
