Vaishno Devi story begins when Mother Goddess Shakti appeared to annihilate the demons on earth who were spreading and encouraging Adharma. Story of Vaishno Devi has it that Mother Goddess Kali, Saraswati and Lakshmi appeared together at a holy spot. From the unimaginable light that they generated appeared a manifestation of the Mother Goddess. This was Ma Vaishno Devi.
She was then born as the daughter of Ratankar and his wife in
South India. The happy couple named her
Vaishnavi. From a young age, Vaishnavi was highly spiritual and longed to merge
with Srihari Vishnu. Her presence on earth made all living beings happy. The
spot she resided became heaven.
Years passed by. Vaishnavi then met Bhagvan Sri Ram during his exile period. They both immediately realized each other. She desired to be merged with Srihari Vishnu.
But Bhagvan Sri Ram asked her to continue her austerities and promised her that she will get the opportunity to merge with Him during Kali Yuga. Sri Ram told her that when he will appear as Kalki in Kali Yuga; She will then merge with Him.
Sri Ram then asked Goddess to setup her abode in Trikuta Hills. He asked her to remain there during the most difficult period of Kali Yuga and spread Dharma.
Goddess Vaishno Devi represents Mother Goddess on Earth during Kali Yuga – the present era. She guides and helps her devotees. She is the representative of Mother Goddess on earth.
