Story of Maa Brahmacharini After the Goddess took the form of Kushmanda, the incarnation of Brahmacharini followed. Parvati took birth in the home of Daksha Prajapati who had a deep contempt for Lord Shiva. Her maiden form is worshipped as Brahmacharini.
The Goddess undertook a severe penance to get a good father in her next birth who would respect Lord Shiva. She walked on barefoot and did several thousands of years of penance to attain Lord Shiva in marriage. She lived on flowers and fruits and later only leaves and stopped even that eventually, living on mere air.
Therefore, Brahmacharini came to be called as Aparna too (one who lived even without leaves). Maa Brahmacharini importance Scriptures say Goddess Brahmacharini is the ruler of the planet Mars.
