Hindu - An aspect of Devi or Parvati. An incarnation of Lakshmi or Uma. A name for Parvati as 'good wife'. Daughter of Daksha and Prasuti. First wife of Shiva. When her father invited all the gods except Shiva to a sacrifice she immolated herself though some say that it was Gauri who immolated herself to become Sati. Another story says that she fell in love with Shiva but he was not invited to the ceremony at which a maiden chooses her husband. She neverthless became his consort but burnt to death from the intensity of her own purity. In both versions she was later reborn as Parvati. The practice of suttee (sati), where a widow immolates herself on her husband's funeral pyre, stems from this incident.
