When Sati came to know about this, She went to attend the Yajna uninvited.
When Daksha saw that Sati has come uninvited he insulted her and her husband Lord Shiva. Unable to bear this pain, Sati jumped in the Yajna pyre and killed herself. This incident angered Lord Shiva and his third eye was opened. He took out her body from the Yajna pyre kept it on his shoulders and started roaming all around in the universe.
