Story of Jalandhar birth and death .

Story of Jalandhar birth and death .

Once, the gods including Indra wanted to test Lord Shiva.  They arrived at Mount Kailash with Brihaspati, the guru of the gods.  Shiva came to know this matter by own spiritual power. That these gods are coming to take my test. So he took himself as Avadhoot's form and stood in their way.  Indra signaled him to move out of the way.  But Avadhoota's form of Shiva, stood in his place.  Indra got angry after seeing this.  He said - "Hey move out of the my way, you don't know , who am I?"  Go away, otherwise I will tear you into pieces by Vajra.
Avadhuta's form of Shiva got angry after hearing the threat.  He shouted loudly and all four directions trembled.  Guru Brihaspati immediately realized that Avadhoota is none other than he Lord Shiva himself. He hinted at Indra and said- “What are you doing, Surendra!  You are not recognizing Lord Shiva.  This is Lord Shiva. "
Indra realized his mistake.  He immediately fell at the feet of Lord Shiva and asked for forgiveness - "forgive me Lord!  I did mistake to recognize you. "
Guru Brihaspati said- Yes Lord!  Forgive Devendra.  He did not recognize you.  Unknowingly, he called you abusive words. Please forgive him. "
["Accepting the request of Guru Brihaspati,Lord Shiva turned his eyes towards the sea.  And thus Shiva ji forgave Indra.  Then departed back towards Kailash.  Indra and Brihaspati also returned to their place. Mahadev poured his anger into the sea.  It was a place where the sea and the Ganges merge.  Presently it is called Gangasagar.  A child was born from the sea due to Shiva's anger".]
A unique miracle happened a few days after this incident.  On the beach, a boy was lying on the sand and loudly weeping.
Such a devastating weeping was coming from his neck that all four directions started shivering from this.  Gods, demons, monster ,human etc. all panic. The bewildered deity, along with Devraj Indra to reached Pitamah Brahma and said to him - “Pitamah!  At the beach , a wonderful child is crying on the sand. He is crying so loud that there is fear in the gods.  Please remove this crisis . "
Pitamah Brahma, Indra etc. reached to beach with the gods.  Samudradeva(gods of sea) left his place as soon as when Pitamah Brahma ji arrived.  He worshiped Brahmaji along with Indra.  Brahma asked to Samudradeva - "Who is this boy lying on the sand in the water?"  Hearing its cry, the whole world is suffering. "
Samudradeva said - I do not know God!  One day a strong divine energy had came into the sea's water.  This child has originated from that divine energy . "
Saying this, Samudradeva raised the child in his lap and gave it to Brahma's lap.  The child stopped crying as soon as when he came on Brahma's lap, and suddenly the child's arms moved forward, his two arms caught the throat of Brahma. Seeing this, other gods were shocked.  Brahma tried to free his throat but the grip of the child's hands became stronger.  Then suddenly the child left his throat and started smiling.  Brahma said while rubbing his throat - O Sagardeva "What is the name of this child?"
Samudradeva said - "He has not got any name till now. So Pitamah ! You have to give him any name. "
Brahma said - I give him a name Jalandhar.  From today it will be called your son. "

["Jalandhar was married to Vrinda, the daughter of a demon named Kalanemi.  Vrinda was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu.  Then after some years Jalandhar became the ruler of demons.  It is said that the secret of the power of Jalandhar was his pious wife. Due to Vrinda's pativrata dharma(virtous qualities), Jalandhar could not defeated by even the Gods and Goddesses.  Due to which Jalandhar was very proud.  He felt that no one could conquer him.  Jalandhar made many mistakes throughout his life. But his biggest mistake was to disregard Vrinda's pativrata dharma(virtous qualities).  He started torturing the wives of the gods.  Not only the deity, even once he attacked Baikunth and tried to get Lakshmiji also.

Then Laxmi Ji told Jalandhar that both of us originated from water.  That is why we have a relationship between brother and sister. Jalandhar went back from Baikunth after listening to Lakshmi.  After this, he reached Kailash and wanted to subdue Parvati ji. Seeing this, Parvati became enraged and due to this the war between Shiva and Jalandhar started.  But due to the power of Jalandhar, Mahadev failed in every attack."]

Naming the child and handing him over to Samudradeva, all the gods including the Pitamah Brahmaji returned to their respective dhams(abode).  When the child grew up, then on the orders of Pitamah, Acharya Shukra started teaching him. On seeing this, the child became a young .  Shukracharya made him the emperor of the demons and married a girl named Vrinda,who was daughter of a demon named Kalnami. Jalandhar proved himself to be a mighty and great warrior . On seeing this, he established his rule over all the islands of the ocean.  His wife Vrinda cooperated with him in every matter.  Vrinda was a sati(virtous) woman.  She had got the blessing of Lord Vishnu that as long as her satitva(dignity) would be safe, no one would be able to hurt her husband's life.
One day Acharya Shukra visits Jalandhar's court.  Jalandhar worshiped Acharya and seated him on a high seat and asked - “Acharya!  We have a warrior named Rahu.  I want to know why his head is chopped off. "
Acharya Shukra said - “ Demon King!  Rahu was beheaded by Lord Vishnu with his Sudarshan Chakra. "
 Jalandhar said - "But why Acharya!  What did Rahu do the fault? ”
In response, Shukracharya told him the whole story of Sagar Manthan(churning of sea) and said - "His crime was that he had fraudly drink Amrit(necter) by sitting in the line of the gods."
Jalandhar said - "So what a crime in this, Acharya!  After all, even the nectar came out, it was only through the combined efforts of the demons and the gods.  Then how did the gods alone become entitled to drink that nectar? "
Shukracharya said - “In this too there was the deceit of Vishnu!  All the gems from the sea were taken by Devraj Indra. "
Hearing this, Jalandhar was angry and said - "I will not let this happen at all." Indra is not to entitled of my father's gems, I himself entitled for this.  The gods have to return the gems of Samudradeva. "
After that Shukracharya went back to his place and Jalandhar summoned a monster named Ghasmar and sent him to Indrapuri to give a message to Indra that he should hand over all the gems received from Sagar Manthan.  Ghasmar reached Indrapuri. He said to Indra - Devraj!  I have come with a message from the demon king Jalandhar.  Daityaraj has said that during the churning of the sea, which gems you had taken from his father , immediately return those gems ”.  Indra said with astonishment - "Gem!  which gem!  Say to the demon king that those gems were the results of the hard work of the gods. "
Ghasmar said - "But both Gods and Demon had worked hard.  Then how did the gems become part of gods alone?  Return the gems in a straight way or else the result will be terrible. ”
Hearing this, Indra said indignantly - "Your courage so much, threaten me in my Puri(city)."  Wait sinner, I make punish you  right now. "
Saying this, Indra took out his Vajra but then Acharya Brihaspati stopped him and said while explaining to him - "Don't come in anger, Surraj!  He is messenger and messenger is not deserving death . So forgive him. "
Ghasmar came back to Jalandhar and told him the answer given by Indra.  Hearing this, Jalandhar became angry.  He immediately sent message to the demons located in all four directions to immediately attack Indrapuri.  Along with his generals he attacked on Indraloka. Soon the army of demons reached the Nandanvan of Indra and the soldiers started fighting with the gods.  Groups of demons began to destroy and damage Amaravati.  The dead bodies of the soldiers on both sides started falling on the ground.
Both Acharya Brihaspati and Shukracharya own sides started treating the wounded and dead soldiers on behalf of gods and demons and they resurrected and started fighting.  The war was continuing on. But neither side was able to win.  On this Jalandhar got angry and reached Shukracharya and said, "Gurudev!  Only you know Sanjeevani Vidya, then how are these gods living after death ? "
Shukracharya said - "Demons king!  Acharya Brihaspati also knows how to use Sanjeevani Booti(herb).  He has put many gods on this task so that they keep bringing Sanjeevani herbs from Dronagiri.  If somehow the gods stop bringing the booti from Dronagiri, then Acharya Brihaspati will not be able to revive the gods. "
Jalandhar said - "But in this way we will have to take a large part of our army towards Dronagiri mountain and here the war is going on at a rapid pace."
Shukracharya said - "If you immerse Dronagiri mountain in the ocean". Then this problem will solve.
On hearing Shukracharya, Jalandhar left Amravati and went to Mount Dronagiri and with his divine arrows dipped it in the sea.  This caused the gods to stop getting Sanjeevani Booti.  Panic spread among the gods. Nervous Indra approached Acharya Brihaspati.  Said - "Our brave soldiers are getting a large number of casualties Acharya!  what will happen now?  In this way all the gods will be destroyed. "
Acharya Brihaspati said - “Follow my advice, Devendra!  Stop this war immediately and run away with your army and save your life.  Jalandhar is born with the glory of Lord Shiva.  He has immense power of Lord Shiva.  You save your life, later some solution will come out to kill Jalandhar. "
Following the advice of Acharya Brihaspati, the gods left the battle and escaped and hid themselves in the shrines of Mount Meru.  The army of demons chased them, but the gods reached the mountain caves and became invisible. After exhausted, the army of the demons returned.  Jalandhar destroyed all the Amravati and sat on the throne of Indra himself.  Indra descended from the cave of Mount Meru and reached Lord Vishnu with his companions.
He prayed to Lord Vishnu - "Protect God!  Jalandhar has destroyed all Amravati.  Thousands of gods have been killed, I myself have come here to save my life.
Lord Vishnu assured Indra and said - "Don't panic, Surraj!  I go to your aid myself.  Jalandhar will not be able to survive for long.
Then Lord Vishnu went to Amravati.  As soon as Lord Vishnu reached there, there was a new energy in the gods.  They started attacking the enemy army.  Jalandhar came in front of Vishnu with great speed.  Whatever weapons and arms Vishnu used on him, Jalandhar would immediately make them resultless.  Finally, Vishnu gave up.  Said - "You are really brave Jalandhar!"  You have also made so many of my weapons useless.  Now stop this war. "
Jalandhar said - "This war can now be stopped on one condition only God.  If you accept my hospitality on my islands including my sister Lakshmi. "
 Vishnu accepted the condition of Jalandhar.  The war came to an end on Jalandhar's orders.  Lord Vishnu reached Sagar islands including Lakshmi.  Jalandhar brought all the wealth of Amravati to his capital and started serving Lord Vishnu with great love.
One day Devarshi Narada visited his assembly.  Jalandhar welcomed him.  Narada ji said - "Demon king!  At this time all the opulence is available to you.  But one thing is lacking. "
 Jalandhar said - "Lacking, what is lacking, Devarshi!  I have everything. "
 Narada said - "There is a lack of such a beauty, which despite being beautiful, is always full of virtues."  Though your wife Vrinda herself is also very beautiful, but there is something more about Shiva's wife Parvati. "
Jalandhar said - "If it is so, I will definitely make Parvati my wife.  Today I order my army to attack Kailash. "
Weicked Jalandhar attacked on Mount Kailash with his army.  Fierce war broke out between his army and Shiva's gana.  At last, Shiva's gana escaped from the battlefield.  Lord Shiva was forced to go to the battle ground.  In the presence of his lord, the enthusiasm of the Shiva's gana increased.  They rapidly attacked on the demon's army at a rapid speed and started killing them.  Shiva stood in front of Jalandhar.  A fierce war broke out in both.
["Then Lord Vishnu took the form of Jalandhar and reached Vrinda.  Vrinda thought that Jalandhar had come to him.  She began to treat Lord Vishnu like as her husband .  Due to which her wife's dharma  broke and Shiva succeeded in killing Jalandhar on Kailash.  Vrinda committed self-immolation to embrace due to the breakdown of her Satitava(dignity).  As her body was consumed, the Tulsi plant grew at that place.  That is, Tulsi is the form of Vrinda which is very dear to Lord Vishnu".]
On the other hand, Lord Vishnu was creating his own maya.  Jalandhar's wife Vrinda was a great virtuous woman.  Vishnu disguised as Jalandhar and went to his room.  He embraced Vrinda.  But Vrinda realizes that this person took form as her husband is not her husband.  So loudly said - "Who are you?"
Vishnu appeared in his real form and laughingly said - "I am very sorry Vrinda!  But it was necessary to do so.  Your husband was invincible because of you.  Now Lord Shiva will have no problem in killing him. "
Vrinda said while crying - "Why have you betrayed me like this, Lord!  My husband did not leave any lacking in your hospitality. "
Lord Vishnu while blessing her said - “You are truly a venerated woman Vrinda!  But every terror ends one day.  The pot of your husband's sins is full.  Its end time has come to a close.  I give you a boon that from today onwards you will be worshiped in the whole world.  Women will worship you. "
Vrinda, burning in the fire of repentance, jumped into the fire and was consumed on sight.  The glow of her body came out and entered Parvati's body.  Gods shower flowers.
Jalandhar's intensity decreased as Vrinda was consumed in the fire.  Lord Shiva cut his head with his trident.  As soon as Jalandhar died, his glory, which he was invincible till today, entered Shiva's body.  The demon army fled in panic.
The Gods praised and worshiped to lord Shiva.  Indra regained his throne and after some time, peace and tranquility spread everywhere.
