Maa Vaishno Devi

Maa Vaishno Devi was born in the south of India in the home of Ratnakar Sagar.

Her worldly parents had remained childless for a long time. Ratnakar had promised, the night before the birth of the Divine child that he would not interfere with whatever his child desired. Ma Vaishno Devi was called Trikuta as a child. Later She was called Vaishnavi because of Her birth from Lord Vishnu's lineage. When Trikuta was 9 years old, She sought her father's permission for doing penance on the seashore. Trikuta prayed to Lord Vishnu in the form of Rama. During Shree Rama's search for Site, He reached the seashore with His army. His eyes fell on this Divine Girl in deep meditation. Trikuta told Shree Rama that she had accepted him as her husband. Lord Rama told her that he couldn't accept her as he was obligate with one wife consort in this life but promised her to meet in Kalyug. In the meantime Shree Rama asked Trikuta to meditate in the cave found in the Trikuta Range of Manik Mountains in northern India. Lord Ram gave her a bow and arrows, an army of monkeys and a lion for her protection. Ma observed the 'Navratra' for the Victory of Shree Rama against Ravana. Hence one reads the Ramayana during the nine days of Navratra, in remembrance of the above connection. Shree Rama promised that the whole world would sing Ma Vaishno Devi's praise. Lord Rama said Trikuta was to become famous as Vaishno Devi and would become immortal forever. The abode of Maa Vaishno Devi is attaining huge pilgrimage attraction due to Lord Rama's blessings to the goddess.
