Renuka mata is the consort of Jamadagni maharshi. She usually brought water from river in a freshly made wet pot. But one day she saw Gandharvas enjoying in river, at that time she got worldly desires, so she was unable to create pot. After reaching Ashram without water, Jamadagni mahrashi identified her worldly desires and ordered his son Parasu Rama to separate her head. Parasu Rama obeyed his fathers order and cut her mothers head. The separated head of Renuka mata was Ekaveera devi. Remaining body was Renuka mata. After that on request of Parasu Rama, Jamadagni gave life to Renuka mata.
