She is prayed for marital longevity and long life of husbands by wives. She is the epitome of divine prakriti or nature. She is also known as Uma, Aparna and Sivakamini (one who longs for Shiva).

Legend of Birth

Sati was born to Daksha, one of the sons of BrahmaBrahmaBrahma
According to Hinduism, the whole creation is the work of Trimurti (the Hindu Trinity)...
(one of the Supreme Gods of Hindus, also known as the Creator) and his wife Prasuti after years of severe meditation. Thus, she is also known as Dakshayani. She was a human form of Adi-Parashakti (Supreme Being or the Ultimate truth of universe or nature). But DakshaDakshaDaksha
Brahma, the creator of the universe, created Daksha from his right thumb...
was given a warning that he should never disrespect his daughter. Otherwise, it would result in havoc. Sati came on earth with the aim of pleasing Shiva with her devotion and to wed him. It was necessary for Shiva to leave his ascetic life in order to contribute in the creation of this earth and this duty was given to Sati.

Marriage with Shiva

Sati was the first wife of Shiva and after her death she incarnated as ParvatiParvatiParvati
After the death of Shiva's first love Sati, Shiva...
, his second wife. She was in love with Shiva as soon as she turned into a young woman but her father Daksha was completely against such match as she was a beautiful princess, also called GauriGauriGauri
Gauri is another form of Parvati who is known for her fair skin and radiance. She is a gentle goddess who is kindhearted and nurturing...
because of her fair and golden complexion and Shiva was a nomad, living in forests with a group of goblins and demons. Sati was born with all the luxuries at her feet, and Shiva wore tiger skin in the name of clothes, a snake around his neck and his body was always smeared with ashes. But Sati was adamant in her choice of her life partner and have been hearing tales about his deeds and charms since childhood.

She left her comfortable life in order to meditate and perform penance for the companionship of Shiva. She spent her days in forests, surviving on just a leaf a day. Impressed by her love and dedication, Shiva decided to meet her one day and knowing what was in her heart, he asked her to accompany him to his abode and marry. She was pleased with the proposal but first asked him to talk to her father, as any ideal daughter would do. Shiva’s proposal was soon rejected by Daksha but Sati didn’t leave the side of her Lord. They both sat on NandiNandiNandi
Nandi is one of the most iconic and famous characters of Hindu mythology. He is the vehicle of Shiva and also the gatekeeper of the abode of Shiva and Parvati. 
, the Bull (Shiva’s vehicle) and without pomp and show went to Shiva’s home and got married where only wild beasts were the guests.

Daksha, now considered Sati as an outcast and didn’t want any bond with her. He arranged for a Yagna (a ritual for happiness, peace and prosperity) and invited all Gods except Sati and Shiva. Sati was hurt by such an insult to her husband and decided to visit her father. Facing insult at her father’s home also made her angrier and she jumped into the yagna’s sacrificial fire. When Shiva came to know about the incident, he created havoc in the universe and killed Daksha too. He roamed about the earth with his wife’s corpse on his shoulders in grief. It is believed Sati’s body pieces fell on 51 different places that are now known as Shakti Peethas and are considered as holy places.

Shiva was later consoled and controlled by Lord VishnuVishnuVishnu
Vishnu is one of the Supreme Gods of Hindus and is a part of Hindu Trinity,..
(one of the Supreme Gods of Hindus, also known as the Preserver). Shiva then gave lives back to all those beings his troop killed, included Daksha and in return gained Daksha’s life-long devotion.

Ritual of Sati

Because of Sati’s dedication to her husband and her honor, a new ritual came into existence which was named after her. In this ritual, a Hindu woman burns herself in the husband’s funeral pyre after she becomes a widow. This signifies her loyalty and devotion to her husband. Though this ritual was initially practiced on a very large scale, but now it is no more into existence and is considered inhumane and illegal.
