Sri Mithila Shakti Peeth History:
After Daksha Yagya, Sati Devi ended her life because Lord Shiva was severely insulted by her father Daksha Prajapati. Mata Sati’s body was cut into 51 parts by Lord Vishnu’s Sudarshan Chakra to separate it from Mahadev. These parts have fallen in different places which became Shaktipeeths. These shrines are spread across the entire Indian subcontinent. Her left shoulder is said to have fallen in Mithila.
