Known as Goddess of the Greens, Shakambari is a form of Devi and sped into action when the world was suffering thanks to Brahma and his bloody boons.

The Demon Durgam had acquired all four books of total knowledge, aka the Vedas, from Lord Brahma through penance, then set up a crafty divine re-direct so all of the goodies offered to the Gods were sent to him instead - a 404 error for offerings!

This made him invincible and also quite arrogant. He had the world in such a state that even the rains snubbed it and a hundred years of nothing but sunshine took its toll.

With a severe drought leaving the earth scorched and baron the holy men sought refuge from the severe heat in a Himilayan mountain cave and began to meditate when all of a sudden up popped Devi in the form of Satakshi. As well as carrying a tasty looking basket of fruit, vegetables and grains she was heartbroken by the sight of the cowering Rishis and cried for a full nine days.

This was enough to end the drought but the tears soon turned to fury and after surrounding the Rishis with a protective firewall she rolled up her sleeves and went to meet Durgam and his marrauding army head on and all hell broke loose.

An almighty ruckuss ensued but the demons brute strength was no match for knowledge and Devi unleashed no less than ten of them, known as Dasha Mahavidya - the goddesses of wisdom.

At last Shakambari killed Durgam with her trident and recovered the Vedas then absorbed all of the mantras that had been intended for the Gods as they floated from the thieving demons battered corpse.

Shakambari could be Ishwari who is probably Durga. You see how easy it is to come up with thirty three million hindu deities?
