Friends, if possible, share my article on social media too, so that I can keep getting excited.
48. Rishi Durvasha cursed to Devraj Indra.Maharishi Durvasa was the younger son of Mahamuni Atri and Sati Anusuya, who were born from a part of Lord Rudra. He was the brother of Chandra and Dattatreya and was famous all over the world for his anger. As if curse was kept on the tip of their tongue. No one knows how many humans on earth become part of their anger and curse, but they did not leave Devraj Indra himself.
Once the sage Durvasa went out to visit the forest. Suddenly he felt a very strong and unique fragrance. The fragrance was so good that Durvasa could not resist himself and started moving towards the fragrance. After walking a little distance, he saw a very beautiful woman sitting on the banks of the lake. There was a wonderful floral necklace around her neck that was shining like light and this pleasing fragrance was emanating from that necklace. Seeing a single woman sitting in the forest like this, he was astonished and they reached her. Seeing a Jatajot Yogi coming to her like this, that girl immediately got up and bowed to him.
Durvasa asked in a surprised voice, "O Goddess, who are you and what are you doing alone in this dense forest?" The girl told him that her name is Vidyadhari and she is the goddess of air. Durvasa greeted him and introduced himself, saying that "The garland of flowers you have worn seems to be extremely rare. It is impossible to have such a pleasing fragrance and such a bright light in any flower on earth." From where did you get the garland of flowers? "The goddess said on her question that" Your statement is true. It is not a simple flower but a garland of very rare Parijat flowers, which are found only in heaven. Pleased with my service, Pawan Dev himself has given me this unique necklace as a gift. "After knowing about that necklace, Durvasa expressed his desire to receive it, on which Vidyadhari gladly returned to her abode by giving him that necklace as a gift.
After some time Durvasa went to Swargalok to meet his father and saptrishis where he saw Devaraja. Thinking that the necklace of Parijat flowers is not fit to live on earth, Durvasa gifted that necklace to Devraj. He thought that Indradev would be happy to find this unique necklace but Devraj started ridiculing that gift. He said that "O Maharishi. You are resident of the earth, that is why you feel this necklace is amazing, but it is heavenly world and innumerable flowers of this type are in our garden. What shall I do with it? But now that you have given me as a gift, then I present this Parijat Mala to Airavat. "Saying this, Indra put that garland on the forehead of Airavat. Thus, knowing the garland kept, and its intense smell caused great inconvenience to Airavat and Airavat ruined that garland by getting into the intoxicant of that intoxicating smell.
Durvasa got very angry seeing his own gift given as an insult in front of himself. He said to Indra in an angry tone, "O Indra! You disrespected such a gift given to me by your wealth and opulence. You also forgot that the value of the gift is not seen and it is always priceless." I curse you that the pride in which you insulted me so much will be snatched away from you forever and the heaven ruled by you will be devoid of wealth and prosperity. "
Indra was horrified after getting such a curse and apologized to Durvasa again and again, but the angry Durvasa did not forgive him and departed from heaven. Indra and other gods lost all their wealth and luckless as they left. As soon as Shukracharya got this news, he asked the demons to attack heaven. Under the leadership of Daityaraja Bali, he invaded the heaven world and removed Devraj Indra from his post. Indressed, Indra had to hide with the other gods to save his life. After being released from heaven, Devraj reached the Supreme Father Brahma and asked him to protect himself. Brahmadev told Indra that you have lost your wealth due to your ego, so now you have to recover it by your ability. On this, Indra asked for a solution to reclaim his wealth, then Brahmadeva consulted with Narayana and suggested to the gods and demons to churn the sea. So that they can reclaim their property.
49. Durvasha rishi cursed to Lord Shiva.You must have known that Sage Durvasa was the 11 incarnation of Lord Shiva, and who does not know about the wrath of Muni Durvasa, but hardly you know that Muni Durvasa cursed Lord Shiva also.
When Mata Sati sacrificed her body, she was took born with name Mata Parvati as a Himachal's daughter, and she also performed austerities to attain Lord Shiva. Pleased with the penance of Parvati, Lord Shiva agreed to the marriage, then all the gods were happy .And started preparing for the marriage of Lord Shiva in full swing, when all the gods and Shivganas on Mount Kailash were celebrating the marriage of Shiva.
That's when Muni Durvasa comes with his mother Anusuiya, to whom seeing Narada says to the sage Durvasa, "O Munishrestha, will you leave your mother and go back?" Then Durvasa Muni says, "Why are you saying that brother, I have also come to go to Shivaji's wedding, hearing this Narada Muni shrugs and thinking that" Muni Shrestha is all right but you Anger comes quickly, due to which you curse, if you get angry during this marriage, the meaning of marriage will be lost.
Then Muni Durvasa said that "It will never happen because I have promised my mother, that I will not be angry, nor curse anyone, then Nandi comes there and takes his mother to a separate room and Durvasa went where Shiva was there. All the gods and all the Shiva were there laughing, singing and having fun, seeing Muni Durvasa, all the Shiva's ganas also asked Muni Durvasa to join the dance song and started laughing, seeing Muni Durvasa felt that all Shivgans are insulting me.
Therefore, the angry Durvasa ji, forgetting the promise given to the mother, cursed all the Shiva's ganas that "Seeing this terrible form of yours, all the girl sides people will become unconscious when you go to their door and cursed Lord Shiva that "In this form you will not be married to Parvati, as soon as he cursed . Then Narada ji said" O Muni how have you done this, with great difficulty, Shivaji was ready for this marriage and you made a terrible disaster by cursing ,Oh laughter the Shivaganas did it,Then how appropriate it is to curse Lord Shiva, because of the curse of Durvasa, all the gods and ganas present there were worried, what will happen now, because with great difficulty, Lord Shiva was awakened from samadhi, if Shivji re-established samadhi. So anybody do not know how many ages will break meditation.
Hearing Narada ji, Durvasa also started thinking with a sad heart, how I had done it, I had promised my mother that I would not be angry nor curse anyone. Now silence spread all around, what will happen now, when Lord Vishnu came there and said "Munishrestha, don't you mourn at all, this incident has been done according to the pre-planned of Brahma ji, Mahadev and Parvati marriage also to be certain . So, forget what happened and prepare to walk in the marriage, when Shri Hari Vishnu said this, everyone smiled on their face and again all started preparing for Shivji's marriage.
50. Rishi Durvasha cursed to Hanuman's mother.It is said that Mata Anjani was Apsara Punjikasthala in the gemot of Devraj Indra in her previous birth. She was extremely beautiful and playful by nature, once in her fickleness, she had committed indecency with a fiery sage while doing penance.
Angry, the sage cursed Punjikasthala to become a monkey with a monkey-like nature, after hearing the curse of the sage Punjikasthala began to apologize to the sage, then the sage said that your this form will also be the ultimate glory. You will be give born a son whose fame and reputation will make your name immortal for ages and years, Anjani got a blessed with a brave son.
There is also another story in this context that, once the sage Durvasa went to Indra's gemot, during that time rapt Punjikasthala was trying to attract the attention of the gemot repeatedly, due to which the sage got angry. He cursed them to become monkey . Due to this curse Punjikasthala was born in the house of a monkey named Viraj and was married to Vanararaj Kesari.Due to the curse of the sage, in the Treta Yuga, Anjana had to be born on earth as a female monkey, Indra who holds the command of the creation of the earth, there were thousands of nymphs (servants) in the gemot (palace) of Indra in heaven, among which One of them was Anjana (Apsara Punjikasthala). Pleased with Anjana's service, Indra told him to ask for the boon she wanted, Anjana hesitantly told him that she had the curse of an ascetic sage, if Indra could get him free from it. Indra asked him to tell about that curse, what do he advice to get rid of that curse.
Anjana started telling him own story, Anjana said when I was playing in childhood, I saw a monkey doing penance, it was a big surprise for me, so I started throwing fruits on that ascetic monkey, It was just my fault because he was not an ordinary monkey but an ascetic sage.
I disturbed his penance and in anger he cursed me that whenever I love someone, I will become a monkey. On my much begging and apologizing, the monk said that despite my face being a monkey, that person's love will not diminish on me. After narrating her story, Anjana said that if Indra Dev could get her free from this curse, she would be very grateful to him. Indra Dev told her that to get rid of this curse, Anjana would have to go and live on earth, where she would meet her husband. Anjana will be freed from this curse after giving birth to Shiva's avatar.
Accepting Indra's order, Anjana came to earth and had to be born on earth as a female monkey . Marriage with Kesari The effect of that curse was to end only after giving birth to Shiva's avatar . And started living as a hunter.
In the forest, she saw a powerful young man fighting a lion and was attracted towards him, as soon as the person's eyes fell on Anjana, Anjana's face turned like a monkey. Anjana started crying loudly, when the young man came to her and asked the reason for their pain, Anjana disguised her face and told her that she had become ugly.
Anjana saw the powerful young man from a distance, but when she saw the person near her, she found that his face was like a monkey.
Describing himself, the person said that he is Vanarraj Kesari, who can come in human form whenever he wants. Anjana's monkey face could not stop the two from making love and Kesari and Anjana got married in the forest.
There is a legend in the Puranas that Kesari and Anjana got married but the children were deprived of happiness. Anjana went to the Matang Rishi for solution of her sadness, then the Mantag Rishi told her - Pappa (many people also call it Pampa Sarovar) is Narasimha Ashram in the east of the Sarovar, Swami Tirtha is on Mount Narayan in the south direction. By bathing in it, meditating and fasting for twelve years, you will get son happiness.
Anjana, after taking permission from Matanga rishi and her husband Kesari, was engrossed in the penance of her adorable Shiva, near Swami Tirtha on the Narayan mountain. Pleased with her penance , Shiva told her to ask for a boon, Anjana told Shiva that in order to be free from the curse of the sage, she had to give birth to Shiva's avatar, so Hanuman as a Shiva's avatar be born from her womb .
51. Rishis cursed to Hanuman ji.The saga of Bajrangbali is read in many theology. Not only in the Ramayana and Mahabharata times, but his fame is still intact. Do you know that despite the immense powers, they have to remember their strength? In childhood, Hanuman ji was very naughty. Apart from this, he did many leela which were not possible for children of his age. Many a times when he would reach the ashram of sages and saints and do something in the ignominy of his childhood, which would disturb sages austerity. As time progressed, Hanuman's ignorance grew. Because of this, his parents as well as sages living in the forest were worried. One day his parents went to the ashram of sages and saints and said to them, "We have received this child under the influence of hard austerity. All of you may bless him."
The sages and saints decided among themselves to decide that if the child Hanuman forgets his powers, then his naughtiness can be controlled and his well being is in this.
The rishis of Angira and Bhrigu dynasty cursed Hanuman ji, "You may forget your strength and glory forever but only when someone reminds you of your powers, only then can you use it."
Due to this curse, Hanuman ji's power and strength decreased and he started living as a quiet child.
52. Durvasa rishi cursed to Krishna and Rukmini ji.Whenever we remember Dwarkadhish Shri Krishna, Radhe and Krishna come out of our mouth.
Radha's name is associated with Krishna as if these two names were never separate. But the truth is also that Radha and Krishna could never be together. It is another matter that according to some legends, both were married but according to most stories, their love could never be fulfilled.
Dwarkadhish Krishna was married to Rukmani, besides he also had 16100 queens and 7 patranis. The relationship between Krishna and Rukmini is also considered ideal but do you know that there is not a single idol of his beloved queen Rukmani in the temple of Dwarkadhish. Actually, the reason for this is a curse due to which Krishna and Rukmini had to live separately for 12 years and for this reason they do not even have any idol in this temple.
A few kilometers away from Dwarkadhish Temple, Rukmani's temple is built in a different part. The story of this curse was recited to the devotees who came here for a time.
If the religious beliefs were to be talked about as the basis, then this curse was given by Durvasa Rishi to Krishna and Rukmini.
In fact, after marriage Rukmani and Krishna reached the ashram of Durvasa Rishi and after there they invited Durvasa Rishi to eat food with them in the palace, Durvasa Rishi accepted this invitation but kept a strange condition for them.
He said that he would not go to the palace in his chariot, he would go with them only on the condition that if he would arrange a separate chariot for him, Krishna agreed to this condition but both were upset that they had this condition How would we complete it because they had only one chariot at that time, because they themselves came there, so they separated the horses from that chariot and both got themselves connect with the chariot.
After walking far enough, when Goddess Rukmani got thirsty, Krishna hit the toe on the ground and both of them quenched the thirst from the Gangajal that came out of it, but neither of them thought that they even asked Rishiwar about this needed. The sage Durvasa got angry on this and in anger, he cursed the goddess Rukmani to stay away from Krishna for 12 years and also said that the place from which Krishna has drained water will become barren.
To get rid of this curse, Goddess Rukmini did penance to Lord Vishnu and then pleased with her penance, Lord Vishnu liberated her from this curse.
Due to the curse of Durvasa Rishi, water is still offered in this temple. According to religious beliefs, pitriganas get water by doing so.
53. Durvasha rishi cursed to Shreekrishna.Friends ,God take avatar to destroy the sinners in every yuga on this earth and establish dharma on this earth again by eliminating all the sinners. Friends, when Lord Krishna incarnated on earth, he had already decided how to leave the earth and return to his Baikuntha. As soon as the work of Lord Shri Krishna was completed on earth, Lord Krishna left his body after suffering from the arrows of a hunter.
It is a matter of time when sage Durvasa came to Dwarka, the palace of Lord Krishna. Then Lord Shri Krishna and Goddess Rukmani did great service to the Durvasa Rishi and both followed all the commandments of Durvasa Rishi. After that Durvasa Rishi told Goddess Rukmani to make Kheer. After that Goddess Rukmani makes Kheer for Durvasa Rishi, after becoming Kheer, Durvasa Rishi taste that Kheer and then asks Goddess Rukmani to apply this Kheer on Shri Krishna's entire body.
Lord Shri Krishna knew that Sage Durvasa has gained so much power from his austerity that if this Kheer is applied to my body, then my body will become completely of vajra so that no weapon of any kind hurts my body. Will be able to After that Shri Krishna thought that when my work on earth is complete, then my body will become of vajra due to which I will not be able to go to my Baikuntha, so Lord Shri Krishna did cause doubt in the mind of Goddess Rukmani with own illusion.
Goddess Rukmani starts thinking in her mind that how can I put this sage's tasted kheer in my lord's feet. After that Rukmani applied the tasted kheer of Durvasa rishi to Lord Krishna's body. After that the body of Lord Shri Krishna became that of Vajra but the place on his foot where Kheer was not coated was not made of Vajra.
Sage Durvasa told Lord Krishna to put Kheer on his feet, but Lord Krishna refused to do so, which made Rishi Durvasa angry and cursed Krishna that his legs would become weak and that is the will be reason for his death.
After that, as soon as the incarnation work of Lord Shri Krishna is completed on this earth, then Lord Krishna is sitting in a resting state under a tree, then, with the inspiration of Lord Krishna, a hunter named Jara comes there and due to Lord Krishna's maya In the place of Lord Krishna he sees a deer and the hunter shoots an arrow at Lord Krishna, so that the arrow of that hunter goes to the feet of Lord Krishna and Lord Krishna thus returns to his Baikuntha again.
54. Gandharva Kumar cursed to Yamraj's daughter Sunitha.This story is described in Padma Purana
Sunitha was the daughter of the Yamaraj. She was defiant in the pampering of parents. She saw that her father used to punish the sinners. She did not understand the difference between sin and virtue, so in sports she would interrupt someone's good work and start beating someone without any reason.
She used to be very happy by doing such a wickedness work. One day Sunitha started beating a Gandharva Kumar, who was sitting in Yogamudra in his worship . When Gandharva Kumar used to groan with pain, she would jump with joy. She considered him a game. She would tell her fathers of this kind of misdeeds. The father would keep quiet, considering her naughtiness as a child-friendly game.
Neither would he stop Sunitha from doing this, nor explain. This went on for many days. One day Sunitha started beating that Gandharva Kumar while he was doing worship. When unbearable he cursed with anger, "You are the daughter of Dharmaraja. You will be married to a sage son. You will also have a worthy child, but part of your evil deeds will permeate in it. "
Sunitha also told this to her father. Now Dharmaraja felt that he had made a big mistake. By not paying attention to the habit and nature of the child, he did not give knowledge of good and bad. As a result, she got a curse, but now the time had passed. Said, "Daughter!" You did not do a good job by beating innocent ascetic. You got this curse because of doing bad deeds. Still be careful and focus on good work. "
Time passed by. When the girl grew up, she worried about her marriage. Knowing his curse, no one was willing to marry him. Who would be the father of a sinful son born to him. When there was no solution, Rambha apsara taught her Mohini Vidya. Apsaras were expert in this work. Now Sunitha has been expert in fascinate anyone.
One day Rambha took with her and went in search of the groom. On the banks of a river she saw the Atrikumar Anga. Sunitha became fascinated on seeing the Anga. She also captivated the Anga on the strength of Rambha's maya and her mohini vidya. Seeing both of them enamored with each other, Rambha got both of them married. Both started living happily. A few days later they had a son named Ven. According to the Atri dynasty, he was rich in religious, virtuous and Rajoschitta qualities like his father's Anga. Everyone would praise him very much in ethics and behavior.
He had all the signs of being in a good family, but due to a mother's bad luck due to which she was cursed, gradually bad deeds started appearing in Ven also. He also became an atheist in association with some atheists and evildoers. He started to feel God, Vedas, Puranas, Shastras, etc., is lies. He began to understand Yajna, Sandhya etc. as hypocrisy.
When he became an adult. He no longer believed what his parents said. His interference in the kingdom increased so much that father became helpless. Anga was a king , but the command was run by Ven. Sunitha was understanding that the result of her rites had come down in this cursed son. Nobody had control over his persistence and arrogance, all were constrained.
People started feeling sad due to these deeds of Ven. The King Anga started getting inadequate. When he was defeated after explaining to Ven in all ways, one day frustrated Anga secretly left the house to avoid notoriety.
Anarchy escalated without the king. The sages made Anga son Ven a king and explained, "Unhappy with your misdeeds, your father renounced the kingdom. Now consider your state responsibility and give happiness to the people by doing good work. "
But Ven became more and more arrogant as a king. Said, "Don't you give me knowledge." I myself am very knowledgeable. God, dharma, scripture etc. will all be established by my order. My only command will be dharma, scripture will be the word. Now you people go according to my command and see in me the shadow of God, dharma and scripture. " The actions of Ven with such ideas increased chaos in the country, all religious and hospitality were closed. The security of the people is no longer there. The wicked were dominated, religious works ceased.
Everything has an end . When the pot of sin was filled, the sages and people revolted. Captured Ven and tortured him and removed him from the post of king. He became helpless due to the loss of power. Now he became dependent on the kindness of others. When the sages deemed Ven's disease incurable and wanted to remove his sin by force, then they quickly grabbed Ven and churned his left hand very well. As a result of this hand a black and short man was born. All of Ven's sins as that man came out. The sages were very happy to see this. Now he churned Ven's right hand. With this, Lord Vishnu appeared as Prithu to bring forth his boon. Ven's atheism was also completely removed after the release of sin. By the grace of the Saptarsis, Ven had attained his former stage.
He went to the banks of the Narmada. He practiced severe austerities while staying in the hermitage of Trinavindu. God appeared to them and asked them to assure them - 'Watts! In order to save you from the curse your mother had received, I gave your father the gift of getting a worthy son. Now you return home.
The sages consulted the people and established their son Prithu as the king.
Surely even a person from a good family becomes forgetful of his dignity due to bad thought . Forgetting his dharma & dignity causes everyone's grief and in the end he is destroyed by his own conduct, so one should avoid wrong association and bad deeds.
