SABARIMALAI

She did penance and obtained a boon from Brahma that she would not be killed by man or god, but would meet her death at the hands of one born to Hari and Hara and that too 12 years of servitude in an earthly kingdom.

Fortified thus with rare boons, she besieged Indraloka and disposed Devendra. She ruled for a pretty long time. For gods, it was a period of woe and every second became a living death. They went en masse to Lord Mahavishnu and prayed for deliverance. Mahavishnu then promised to rescue them permanently through Hariharaputra who would be brought up by the King of Pandalam for a period of 12 years. And as a temporary relief, Dattatreya was rejuvenated as a buffalo and was provided to Mahishi as mating companion to divert from her constant torture of the devas. 

In order to fulfil the promise, Lord Mahavishnu taking the form of Mohini descended to Bhuloka at the exact moment, when Lord Siva was in a predicament. Not only the union of Siva and Vishnu brought forth Hariharaputra, but it accomplished King Rajasekhara's ardent desire of SantanaPrapti.
