Looking back into our history, the story of Shree Rani Sati Dadi Ji, also known as Narayani Devi starts from the time of Mahabharata.

It is the story of Narayani’s wish of being married to Abhimanyu and her desire to be Sati (self-immolation) in her next life. As granted by Lord Krishna, in her next life she was born because the daughter of Gursamal within the village of Dokwa in Rajasthan. She was named as Narayani. Similarly, Abhimanyu took birth in Hissar as the son of Jaliram and was named as Tandhan.

Tandhan and Narayani got married and started leading a good and peaceful life. Abhimanyu was in possession of a beautiful horse which was being eyed by the son of the king of Hissar from quite some time. Tandhan strongly refused to hand over his beloved & precious horse to the king’s son. The enraged king’s son felt insulted and decides to forcefully acquire the horse and thus challenges Tandhan for combat. However, Tandhan fights the battle bravely and kills the King’s son instead. The enraged king thus kills Tandhan in front of Narayani in the battle.

Narayani symbolic to female bravery and power fight with the king and kills him. She then commanded Ranaji (the caretaker of the horse) to form immediate arrangements for her to be set aflame along side her husband’s cremation. Ranaji playing a vital role in fulfilling her wish to be Sati with her husband is then blessed by Narayani that his name will be taken and worshipped along with her name everywhere. It is since then She is known among Her devotees as Rani Sati Dadi (Grandmother).
