Their sacrificial fires have also been dedicated to them, but we have not been called deliberately. No information has been sent. In such a situation it will not be right for you to go there.
But Sati requested a lot, by seeing her strong request, Lord Shankarji allowed her to go there. When Sti reached the father’s house, saw that no one was talking to her with respect. Her mother was embracing her with affection and the sister’s words were full of sarcasm. She could not bear the insult of her husband Lord Shankar.
