Mother Bhavani, the personification of ferocious wrath taking her abode in the hill temple of Tuljapur is jagrit-living deity and is ever alert to taking reprisal against the offenders. She tolerates not injustice meted out to any, by any, at any time and in any place. Legends embody numerous accounts of her taking revenge upon the iconoclasts and wicked invaders through her human agency. This Mother inspired and animated the ordinary, sublime, simple lambs like men into roaring lions by igniting virtuous wrath embedded in their hearts and became instrumental in founding empires. Is it her permanent aspect ? Not at all. She is Kamadhenu too. She is omni compassionate and solicitous as well and the family deity of almost all the Maharastrians and is the first among the adorable Sakti devatas receiving honours from her votaries. Peshwas, for example did nothing without visiting this Sakti-Peetha and praying for inspiration and benediction. Although there are many sakti pithas in the land of Maharashtra, like Mahalakshmi of Kolhapur, Mahamaya Renuka at Mahur, Jagadamba at Saptshring and Ambejogai at Osmanabad, this Bhavani is so popular as a powerful goddess, who ignites heroism in men and advocates righteous indignation in dealing with savages in royal robes, and blood suckers on the saddle with torch in one hand and sword in another.
