of Lord Vishnu used to pray to Lord Ram had taken vow of celibacy.BhaironNath , a tantrick
(demon-God) tried to behold her and gave a chase. The Goddess felt thirsty at Banganga and shot an arrow into the
earth from where water gushed out. The Goddess then meditated in the cave at
Adhkawari. It took Bairon Nath nine month to locate Her, the reason why the cave is known as
'Garbh Joon' Vaishno Devi Mata blasted
an opening at the other end of the cave with Her Trident when the demon -God located
Her. On arriving at the holy
cave at Darbar, she assumed the form of Maha Kali and
cut of Bhairon Nath's head which was
flung up the mountain by the force of blow and fell at the place where the Bhairon Temple is now located
. The boulder at the mouth of the holy cave according to the legend is petrified torso of Bhairon nath
who was granted divine forgiveness by the benevolent Mata in his dying moments.
