It is also believed that Mansa Goddess is a power emerged from Lord Shiva's mind. The word 'Mansa' literally means "desire". According to the name, Mansa Ma fulfils the wishes of her devotees. The devotee to fulfil her wishes situated in the temple courtyard, on the branch of the tree, binds a sacred thread. When the wishes of the devotees are fulfilled then devotees come back and open the same thread from the branch. This custom shows immense shraddha, devotion and fidelity towards Ma Mansa.
