In the following rebirths, Goddess Parvati performed severe and harsh penance spanning prolonged periods to obtain Lord Shiva as her husband, and pleased with her devotion, Lord Shiva took her as his wife during all of Goddess reincarnations. It is believed that the humblest method to appease Goddess Parvati, Sati, or Durga is observing the Saubhagya Sundari Teej.
