As per the legends, when Mahishasura was defeated, all Devatas got arrogant and thought they are supreme beings. Lord Brahma in order to teach them a lesson, gave them a small grass and asked all the Devatas to try and move the grass with all the power they possess. All the Devatas tried their best and used all kinds of power to move the grass but it didn't sway from its place. It was Goddess Jagaddhatri who controls the world and thus the Devatas realised that their power is limited and they are not supreme. Not even a single grass can be harmed without her permission.
