With Mother Bhavani's infinite grace, Shivaji killed the arrogant prattler in a fortnight's time. Mother Bhavani's aerial voice was thus fulfilled and along with that Maharashtra banner started fluttering, and sounded to the Muslim kings the tolling of death knell, as it were. Government records embody certain references to the glory of the temple, when certain Maratha leaders of Bhonsales made grants to the temple, wherein Mother Bhavani was mentioned as their Kulaswamini. Another notable feature that can be discerned from the records is that these sanads were made on the fulfillment of vows - Navasas taken by the rulers. On occasions when certain rulers bypassed the Mother, relying upon their muscle power, they were severely punished - defeated in the skirmishes against Muslim adversaries. Not only did the Mother rain boons for the success of her votaries, but punished them, pointing out their lapses arisen due to either their over confidence or arrogance, when they reached her feet. They then made lavish endowments in token of realisation.

Mother Bhavani thus kept the scales even and justified that 'roudra' is as indispensable as Vatsalya. Here is evidence.
