There was a belief that once goddess Parvati, Lakshmiji and Saraswati send their husbands Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh to take a strength test of Devi Anusuya. They then visited her at the ashram where Devi Anusuya offered them food. But they did not take the food served by her and put a condition on her that they will only accept that food if she will serve that food without wearing any clothes.

When Devi Anusuya heard that she got tensed and started to think how will she do that. Atlast, she closed her eyes and started thinking about her husband. Then suddenly she got an intuition that these sages were the gods and they were here to test her strength. Then goddess Anusuya transforms the three gods into infants and then she provide them with food without wearingany clothes. In this way the three gods became sons of Devi Anusuya.

Later on all the three gods started to live there as Devi Anusuya’s sons. When the three gods did not reach to the Parlok, the three goddess Parvati, Saraswathi and Lakshmiji apologized for their behaviour and requested Devi Anusuya to give their husbands back.
