Sati Anasuya was the wife of sage Atri. Pleasing Bhagavan Shiva with a formidable penance she got Bhagavan Dattatreya as her son. During the period of his exile Bhagavan Rama went ( along with Lakshman and Sita ) to the hermitage of Rishi Atri where Anasuya brought great joy to Sita with her hospitality and taught her the duties of a woman and fidelity to one's husband. Once Rishi Mandavya cursed ( gave sapa ) to a woman to become widow with the rise of Sun. Sati Anasuya with the power of her pativratya prevented the Sun from rising. The gods and Rishis went into the refuge of Sati Anasuya and supplicated her to remove the scare to which the world had been put because of the Sun not rising. Sati Anasuya got a boon from them to let the husband of the cursed woman resuscitate ( become alive again ) after his death due to curse - thus removing the effect of curse on the distressed woman that way defended her good fortune of having a husband and then alone let the Sun rise.
