History is evident that India is a land of devoted wives .Among them is Bhanmati. Bhanmati was wife of Vachaspati Mishra of South.Vachaspati Mishra has written several Shivji Tikaas.He was a devoted follower of Lord Shiva & was 24 hours busy in writing scriptures on Shivji .His wife Banmati was very devoted to her husband,She never used to disturb her husband while he was writing scriptures.She used to fill the lamp with oil & never let the lamp to extinguish so that her husband does not get disturbed.
Vachaspati Mishra wrote several Shivji Tikaa’s . One day when he was completing a scripture on Shivji the lamp suddenly started flickering , as soon as Bhanmati saw this she immediately prevented the flame to get extinguish.Suddenly Vachaspati Mishr saw Bhanmati in the light of lamp and asked her ” Who are you & what are you doing “.Bhanmati smilingly told that ” Swami I am your wife & we got married 36 years ago “. Vachaspati Mishra asked her wife than why I did not realize that ? .Bhanmati said ,” As he was busy writing Scriptures on Shivji & she does not want to interfere with his work therefore she never made him realize that he was married.”
On hearing this from her wife Vachaspati Mishra appreciated her & told her that the name of the Scripture which he is writing will be BHANMATI KI TIKAA.
