Shakambhari Devi is known as Banashankari Devi in Karnataka and Banada Ashtami is an important day during Navratri. Devotees visit Mata temples and pay respect to Shakambhari avatar of the Mother Goddess on the day of Paush Purnima. 

The Story of Goddess Shakambhari Existence

A demon named Durgamasur did intense penance or "tapasya" to please Lord Brahma who is the creator of the Universe. The demon wanted to get the four Vedas (the Rig Veda, the Yajur Veda, the Sama Veda and the Atharva Veda) from Brahma, who holds and is the author of the sacred scriptures. Finally after years of penance, Lord Brahma was pleased and appeared in front of Durgamasur and asked for boons the demon wanted. Durgamasur asked for the Vedas to be given and thus Lord Brahma granted him the boon of obtaining the Vedas.

The result was that the sages on the earth and the Devas in heaven lost all their powers in the absence of the Vedas. No Yagya or Havan was performed, and the Sages lost their knowledge. The earth was hit by a famine due to the inadequacy of water and rain. Therefore to save the world from this deficit, Devi Parvati took the form of Shakambari to kill Durgamasur and recover the Vedas from his custody. Mata Shakumbhari Devi showered her blessings on the earth. Thus, Maa Shakambhari came into being and is worshipped as the Goddess of fruits and vegetation.
