According the Purana, once Arun Asura conquered the Heavens (swarglok) and evacuated all Gods from their lavish abode. The repulsive Asura tried to conquer on the wives of the Gods too. Then the Goddess prayed to Goddess Parmeshwari who then transformed Herself into a large bee and along with a swarm of bees attacked the demon. The bees torn up the chest of the Asura and killed him. From then onwards the divine mother is also known as 'Bhramari Devi or Bumblebee'- as a savior and protector of mankind.
