In Bharat there is a famous town known as Kolhapur which is renowned for it's sacred Mahalaxmi temple. This whole area is known as
Sidhha kshetra.

Once a Prince from a nearby state came visiting here.
The handsome Prince Sidhha Samadhi had a holy dip in Manikanth tirth after which he performed Tarpan to his ancestors. After that he sat and started praying to Mahalaxmi. He sang her praises saying that she is a combination of Ichhashakti, Gyanshakti and Kriyashakti.
She takes various forms in order to protect her bhakts appears as Brahmi, Vaishnavi, Aindri, Chandika etc. She is the one that fulfills all the wishes of bhakts.

Mahalaxmi was satisfied by his prayers and she appeared before him. She inquired as to what did he wish.
He told the Devi that his father King Brahadrath had organized a Yagya, but he became sick and met with an untimely death in the middle of the Yagya. The horse which was sent around as a part of this Yagya was now missing. They had searched for the horses but
they could not be traced. He wanted to fulfill his father's obligation but could not do so. So he wanted the Devi to help him trace the horses so that he could fulfil his obligations as his only son.The Devi directed him to go to a tapasvi staying near the entrance of the temple.
So the Prince goes to the tapasvi who instantly knows everything about the Prince's problem through Devi. He assures the Prince and immediately summons the devtas there. The devta's immediately arrive before him shivering with fright. He orders them to immediately free the
Prince's horse which was robbed by Indra.

The devta's leave and soon are back with the horse in toe. Prince Sidhha Samadhi cannot believe this happening in front of his eyes. He gathers courage and asks the Brahmin in amazement as to actually what hold does he have on all devtas
that they immediately come & fulfill all the tasks.The Brahmin informs him that this is the Shakti of the 12th chapter of Gita. It has the power to even summon devtas. The Prince then requests the Brahmin to bring his father back to life as his body was preserved in herbal oils.
The Brahmin is taken near the corpse. He takes some water and after sanctifying it, he places it in on the dead mans head. The King becomes alive immediately.

From that day onwards the father son duo are reading the 12th chapter of Gita regularly.

Rig Ved 1.34.7

To fully complete a task usually it is repeated three times. This is known as Trivaacha. Then it is deemed to be complete since there is no place left for doubt. Doubt creates confusion and uncertainty which gives rise to ignorance.

To abolish confusion it is better to abolish Doubts. Once our doubts are destroyed our past present and future does not get interrupted. That is the Truth. When this Truth illuminates Atma, this joining together makes Jeev grateful.

Usually we take pride in our past and fear the future. But when the Jeev attains purity,knowledge & liberty then we become fearless &humble.

त्रिर्नो॑ अश्विना यज॒ता दि॒वेदि॑वे॒ परि॑ त्रि॒धातु॑ पृथि॒वीम॑शा यतं।
ति॒स्रो ना॑सत्या रथ्या परा॒वत॑ आ॒त्मेव॒ वातः॒ स्वस॑राणि गच्छतं॥
