Shiva bestows boon: After completion of Her Vrata, Brahma, Vishnu and other devas went to the abode of Shiva and requested Him to accept Sati as His wife. Shiva agreed and finally appearing before Sati told Her to ask for a boon. Overpowered by shyness, Sati told Shiva to bestow a boon according to His liking. Shiva said: "Become my wife".
