The mention of Savithri's name reminds one and all that she was first and foremost one of the greatest pathivrathas. Goddess Savithri is worshipped for begetting progeny. King Aswapathi was one such who received the boon of progeny from the goddess and very rightly, named the child Savithri. She grew up to be beautiful by the day. Princes who came seeking her hand in marriage turned away voluntarily as they thought they were undeserving. Her father thus got anxious and asked her to look for a husband for herself. Roaming far and wide, she settled on Satyavan. Unfortunately, Narada came to know of it and said that though Satyavan was of exemplary character, he was destined to live for just one more year. Even Dhyumatsena, Satyavan's father, was hesitant to accept this divine beauty as his daughter-in-law as he was away from the comforts of the palace and living in a forest. But, Savithri's resolve could not be broken by anyone or anything. As the day of Satyavan's death approached, she undertook a vratha for three days. On the day of Satyavan's death, she accompanied him to the forest. When Yama pulled out Satyavan's atman and started pulling it towards south, Savithri followed him. She did not heed to Yama's advice of going back but in fact, pleased Yama with her utter devotion. Yama relented and gave her back not only her husband but blessings for her to bear a hundred sons.
