Why Narada Muni cursed to Lord Vishnu?
Narayana… Narayana… On hearing this word, the image of Narada comes in our mind. Narada used to win over everyone with his wisdom and clever words. Do you know that Narada who is an ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu. Everyone is aware that Devarshi Narada is best one of the many devotees of Lord Vishnu. Narada, the supreme devotee of Lord Vishnu, is the son of Brahma, the creator of the universe. According to Srimad Bhagwat and Vayu Purana, Narada was born from the thigh of Brahma. He has been called the messengers of the Vedas. It is believed that Veena was invented by Narada. Today I am going to tell you about such a story related to Narada. This story explain how lord Vishnu realized Narada to his mistake .Narada Muni is considered the knower of all the Vedas. Due to this knowledge, Mata Parvati was a big fan of him. Once Shiva and Mata Parvati were sitting. That's when Mata Parvati starts praising Narada. Lord Shiva then explains that Narada is indeed a storehouse of knowledge, but once he had to become a monkey due to this ego of knowledge.
Hearing this, Mata was surprised when Mata Parvati asked Shivji the whole incident .Lord Shiva said that Devi when Narada became the knower of all the Vedas, he became proud that no one else in the world is more knowledgeable than him, then Liladhar Vishnu created Leela to break the pride of Narada. Once Narada Muni was wandering on the peaks of the Himalayas, then saw a cave next to which Ganga ji was flowing, animal birds were roaming all around. Seeing such a beautiful atmosphere, devotion to Shri Hari Vishnu prevailed in his heart and he sat in the same cave and meditated on Lord Vishnu, seeing that Devraj Indra got frightened. He started thinking that Narada ji has acquired all kinds of knowledge. Then why is he doing penance or it it may he have a wish in his mind. He started penance just to get Indrasana(Kingdom of heaven), so Indra sent Kamadeva to break the penance of Narada.
After reaching there, Kamadev fed colorful flowers from his illusion. Fragrant winds started blowing to ignite Kamagni(lust). Urvashi Apsara started dancing and performing the body expose . But it had no effect on Narada Muni. So all the apsaras including Kamadeva apologized to Narada and went back.
After Kamadeva's departure, Narada Muni came to Shiva and told him about victory over Kamadeva. God understood that Narada Muni has been caught by arrogance. So, smiling and said that what you have told me, do not tell Shri Hari Vishnu. But Narada started thinking that after all I have defeated Kamadeva. I will not tell anyone, so how people will know .
Narada ji thought in his mind, Shankarji keeps saying. It seems that Bhole Baba was jealous of me that I defeated Kamadeva. This is what happens when there is pride. The doors of wisdom and conscience are closed. This brought pride to Narada Muni. Narada Muni began to think of himself as bigger than Lord Shiva. The same thing happened with Narada ji. He rushed to Brahma ji and told him to story of defeat Kamadeva. Brahma ji said, really Narada, you have done wonders.
Thinking this, he directly approached Shri Hari Vishnu and even after Shiva refused, he told the entire story to Shri Hari Vishnu, now seeing the devotee Narada suffering with arrogance, Shri Hari Vishnu created a leela to remove Narada's ego .
When Narada ji went away from Lord Vishnu, Vishnu ji with his illusion built a beautiful city on the way to Narada and his king's name was Shilnidhi and the daughter of that king Vishwamohini who was really very beautiful. For whose marriage the king had organized a swayamvar. That's why many kings came to that city. Narada ji also reached there.
Now seeing the Devarshi came, the king welcomed him and seeing the palm of his daughter, urged him to describe the future . But when Narada ji saw that girl, he was so fascinated by that girl that he forgot own disinterest and the palm of that girl was telling that whoever gets married to her, no one in the world can beat him and he will be immortal . Now Narada ji told the king something else by not telling this thing. And on the way there, Narada ji thought that this girl is suitable for me. Some such measures should be taken. That girls marry me only.
Thinking this, he appeared in front of Shri Hari Vishnu and told the whole thing that "Lord, the beautiful face of you belongs to no other in this world. So you give me your beautiful Hari form, so that I can marry that beautiful girl. Then Shri Hari Vishnu said that devotee Narada I will do what is best for you and your future and gave Narada the monkey form, Narada felt that now he looks exactly like Vishnu. Therefore, Narada immediately entered Vishwamohini's swayamvara. There 2 Ganas of Shiva were also present in the form of Brahmin. Both of them started telling Narada, saying that God has given him such a beautiful form that the princess will definitely choose her bridesmaid. Hearing this, Naradji was very happy in his mind.
But at the same time, Lord Vishnu also assumed the form of a king and came to the Swayamvara. When the swayamvara started, Vishwa Mohini did not even look at Narada and put a garland in the neck of King's form Vishnu ji, seeing that Narada Muni got upset. Just then Shiva's Ganas taunted and asked Narada to look at his face in the mirror, so when Muni saw his face in the water, he got angry and cursed both the Ganas to be born in the demon's form. But when he saw his face again in the water, he had regained his true form, but Naradji, who became a joke, went out in angry to meet Vishnu and on the way he met Lord Vishnu Mata Lakshmi and Vishwamohini.
Now seeing the three together, Narad ji's anger increased further and without thinking he said to Lord Vishnu that you have always cheated. Whether the gods have to drink nectar or give poison to Shiva. But what you have done to me. You will definitely have to bear the results of this. I curse you that you will have to take birth as a human being in the earth. You have taken me away from woman, so you will have to bear female separation. You have given me a monkey form, so you will have to seek help from the monkey, only then Lord Vishnu has finished his illusion and after the withdrawal of Maya, when Narada remembered his curse, he was very sorry but the given curse can not be taken back.
Therefore, Shri Hari Vishnu had to incarnate on the earth in the form of Sri Rama. Here, seeing the impact of maya finished on Narada, both the Shiva's gana asked the path of salvation, then Narada Ji said that you will be born on earth as both Ravana and Kumbhakaran and will get liberate from the hands of Lord Rama, the incarnation of Shri Hari Vishnu.
Some important lesson from this story.
