Goddess Parvati told Lord Shiva that she needed her own palace

Goddess Parvati told Lord Shiva that she needed her own palace

We all know that Sri Hanuman had set fire to Lanka.  But do you know that all this was due to the curse of Maa Parvati.  So, let us know what happened to the mother Parvati whom to cursed and sat fired to Lanka?


The story goes that once Maa Parvati invited Vishnu and Lakshmi to dine on Kailash.  Then Maa Lakshmi asked her how she lived amidst such cold winds.  That too when she has lived the life of a princess.  This hurt Mata Parvati a lot.  A few days later, Mother Lakshmi invited Goddess Parvati to come to her Baikuntha Dham.

Mother Parvati reached Baikuntha Dham with Shiva on the invitation of Lakshmi.  Seeing the splendor and opulence of Baikuntha Dham, Goddess Parvati ji also felt that she should have a palace too.  She realized that all the gods live in their palaces, so Mahadev, the god of the gods, should also stay in the palace.  Goddess Parvati started stubbornly thinking that Mahadeva should also stay in the palace and our palace should be better and grand than Indra's palace.

Mahadev tried hard to explained Goddess Parvati.  But Goddess Parvati did not listen to him and she stubbornly said that she wanted a palace which should not be anywhere in the three worlds.  Mahadev explained to Goddess Parvati that I am a yogi, I will not be able to stay in the palace for much longer.  There are many rules and criteria of living in the palace.  The palace is not suitable for us.
Goddess Parvati was not affected by the talk of Lord Shiva.  She remained on her head.  Finally, Lord Shiva called Vishwakarma ji after losing it.  He called Vishwakarma Ji and said that he build a palace whose beauty is  greater than to the palace in all worlds and that palace is neither on earth nor in water.
Vishwakarma started searching for a place which was according to Lord Shiva's direction.  While traveling, he found a place which was covered with water from all the sides.  Three beautiful mountains were seen in the middle.  There were different types of flowers and vegetation on that mountain.  It was Lanka.
Vishwakarma ji told Goddess Parvati about that place.  Goddess Parvati was very pleased to hear about the beauty of that place and ordered Vishwakarma to build a huge city.  Vishwakarma Ji, while introducing his art, made a wonderful city of gold there.
After the palace of gold was built, Parvati ji got the auspicious time entrance to the house.  Vishrava Rishi was appointed as Acharya.  Invitations were sent to all the gods and sages.  All the gods praised the palace very much.
After Griha pravesh(home entry) Mahadev told Acharya to ask for Dakshina(fee).  Mahadev, with his maya (illusion), filled the mind of Vishrava with greed for that city.  Due to Mahadev's illusion, Acharya asked for Lanka in Dakshina.  In Dakshina, he asked for Lanka, Goddess Parvati could not stop Mahadeva from donating Lanka.
After donating Lanka, Parvati ji felt very angry at Vishvara's audacity.  She cursed him in anger that by taking advantage of the simplicity of Mahadeva, you have captured my beloved palace.  One day one form of Mahadeva will be burning that palace and with that the destruction of your dynansty will begin.
According to the Ramayana story Lanka got his son Kubera from Vishwa, but Ravana took out Kubera and grabbed Lanka.  Lord Hanuman, an incarnation of Shiva sat fire to that Lanka due to the curse and the destruction of Vishrava's son Ravana, Kumbhakarna and his dynansty was start .  Vibhishan survived by being in the shelter of Shri Ram.

Narada-Character: 'Devarshi', who inspires towards the path of Moksha.


Narada-Character: 'Devarshi', who inspires towards the path of Moksha.


Who does not know Devarshi Narada!
But do you know the secret of Narada Muni's birth and his various births?
 His glory can be understood in such a way that in Dwapar Yogiraj Shri Krishna tells Narada in the Devarshis his own glory.  Apart from this, there is definitely a mention of Narada somewhere in the scriptures of Vedic literature, Ramayana, Mahabharata, Purana etc.
Let us go to the story of Devarshi Narada, who wanders freely in the universe:

When Parampita Brahma gave a 'curse' to Narada.

According to the statements mentioned in Brahmavaivarta Purana, Devarshi Narada is the Manasaputra of Parampita Brahma.  It is said to he has originated from the gorge of Brahma.
 It is said that when Brahma, the creator of the universe, ordered Narada to go to earth for the work of creation, Narada did not obey him.
The reason was that Naradji considered subject-enjoyment to be a major obstacle in god-hymn and in his attainment.  According to him, indulging in service of God was like nectar and subject -enjoyment was like poison.
However, Brahma cursed seeing his disobedience.
 As a result of this curse, along with the loss of knowledge of Narada Muni, he was to gain Gandharvayoni, in which he would be subjugated by sex.
 Naradji became unhappy after getting the unprovoked curse and prayed to his father and said, 'How is it fair to curse the bright son?'
Nevertheless, Brahma must have such a blessing on him that 'Whatever I will born in the yoni, there should never leave me devotion to God.
 Unhappy with his father, Narada Muni also cursed Brahma and said -
 "O Parampita!  You have cursed me without offense, so I also curse you that you will not be worshiped in the world for three kalpas and your mantras, stotra, kavavha etc. will be disappeared. "
 After the curse of both father and sons, the sequel of this story comes in the context of Narada's various births.

Story of various births of Narada

Narada was born in the Gandharva yoni as a result of his father's curse.
 Then his name was Upbaharna and he was as beautiful as Kamadeva.  He was also very proud of his form.  It is said that once the deity and Gandharva came to Brahmaji's assembly to make God-sankirtana.  Upbaharna also went there with his wives.  In the Bhagavad bhajan also, the Upbarahan was behaving in a lustful manner due to the effect of the curse.  Seeing this, Brahmaji cursed Narada (Upbaharna) to be a Shudra.
The story begins from the second birth of Narada Muni.
After this, Naradji was born into a Shudra family.  Coincidentally, after birth, his father was died, while his mother used to work as a maid of a devout Brahmin.
In this birth, Naradji was a virtuous, sober and serious child.  It is said that when Naradji was only 5 years old, then one day some sages came to the village for Chaturmasya.  At such a time, Narad Muni used to serve the Mahatmas with a lot of heart and was equally engrossed in listening to the Bhagwat kathas.
In this way, all the defects of child Narada's heart were removed due to satsang and his mind became pure.  When the sages started going after the end of the Chaturmasya, seeing the humility of Dasiputra (Narada), they gave knowledge of chanting the name of God and meditation of the form of the Supreme Father(God). '
 His mother later died of a snake bite.
Then, at the age of five years, Narada Muni proceeded towards the north depending on God.  While walking, the senses became relaxed, then under a peepal tree, he sat in a posture and meditated on God.  It is said that as a result of devotion, God suddenly appeared in his heart.
After that, as a child, Naradji tried to meditate again and again to get a glimpse of God, but he did not see him again.
 But through an Akashvani, his mind remained in the Lord even later and one after the other and then he got freedom from the fifth mortal body too.
According to the stories, at the end of Kalpa, when Lord Vishnu was resting in the Kshirasagar, at the same time, Brahmaji started entering with the entire universe for sleep in his heart.  Just then Narada entered Brahma's heart with his breath.
After Brahmaji arose after Sahasra Chaturyuga and he started creating the universe, Naradji along with other sages from his senses emerged as Brahmaji's manasaputra and by the grace of God, Narayan-Narayan keep  singing while playing the Veena with this unbroken celibacy.  

Narada Muni's compositions

All the compositions composed by Devarshi Narada guide the devotees in this universe.  In this, what is said in Srimad Bhagwat in relation to 'Naradpancharat', its importance is clear -
 In the creation, Lord Vishnu took the third incarnation as the Devarhi Narada and preached Sattvata-tantra (Narada-Pancharatra).  In this book, there is a detailed description of how to get rid of Karmabandhan.
In addition there is a Upanishad by the name of Naradji, called ‘Naradparivrajakopanishad’, which is believed to be associated with the Atharvaveda.  Apart from this, if we talk about Narada's compositions, then in the Shantiparva of Mahabharata, Shukdevji has been taught spiritualism by Naradji.
Later it was known as 'Naradgita'.  Along with this, 'Narada-Smriti' and 'Narada Shiksha' scriptures composed by Narada are also very popular.
 Without the discussion of Naradpuran, talk of Narad Ji's compositions will be incomplete.  This Purana is also known as an Encyclopaedia (Encyclopedia).
 Since Devarshi Narada has been the guru of Ved Vyasa, Maharishi Valmiki etc., it can also be said that by the grace of Munivara Narada, specific texts like Ramayana and Srimad Bhagwat have been attained to the world.

… … Whom Devarshi Narada showed the path of ‘Moksha'.

In this context, it would be appropriate to mention an interesting reference.  Once Maharishi Ved Vyas got very sad with Narada Muni and said, 'O Muniver!  I have described the essence of the four Vedas in the Mahabharata-text, a compilation of Puranas.  Why am I not getting satisfaction even after doing so much? '
 Devarshi Narada while addressing Vyasa ji, said that - 'You have not sung the glory of God in your text.  Narada Muni further added that "that knowledge is incomplete in which the sacred glory of Narayana is not described."
Then Maharishi Veda Vyasji composed Bhagwat Samhita with the leela of God.
 Narada ji's leela is not even here, but behind the devotion of the brave child Prahlada was the confidence generated by Narada Muni.  When Dhruv was going to the forest, hurt by the bitter word of step mother, Naradji gave 'Vasudev Mantra' to him.
 All such examples are present in the universe, from which it is known that Narada Muni led the way to many  people and led many to the path of devotion.
why Narada Muni does not stay anywhere?
There is an interesting story behind it.
 Once Daksha Prajapati produced ten thousand sons named 'Hariyashv', he also ordered them to expand the universe.  Meanwhile, by force, Devarshi Narada taught spiritual lessons to those sons and in this way they became disgusted.
 Due to this, Daksha Prajapati was very sad, but he did not give up and reproduced a thousand sons named 'Shabalaksha'.
Even where Naradji was also interested,  again he also turned 'Shabalakshas' towards the feet of God.  This time Daksha Prajapati became angry and cursed Narada that 'you will not be able to stay in one place for much longer'.
 Apparently, due to this reason, Narada Muni does not stay in one place.
You will be surprised to know that arrogance had also taken place in Narada Muni, who was so great ascetic and steeped in piety.  It sounds strange to hear, but the stories that say… say so.

Story related to Narada's ego will be published on this blog in a day or two.

Why was Surpanakha and Shri Krishna married?


Why was Surpanakha and Shri Krishna married?

 It is necessary to know about Surrapanakha before main story.

Shurpanakha, sister of Ravana and wife of Sri Krishna, yes this story is very interesting.  This story from Treta Yug to Dwapara Yuga is very interesting.  Know what Shurpanakha did, due to which she got the privilege of becoming the bride of God herself.
Hardly you know about Dandakaranya forests's ruler, Ravana's much-loved sister, Shurpanakha, that she had the privilege of being the wife of Sri Krishna.  The image of Shurpanakha in the common man is of a demon.  A woman who decided to take revenge on Sri Ram and Lakshman after being frustrated(that mean after cutting nose...after feeling insult) and inspired Ravana to fight. In the end it led to the destruction of its own dynasty.  But despite all this she became the wife of Shri Krishna, she was got salvation .  The great sages -saints is not able to achieve this happiness even after rigorous penance, but Shurpanakha got this blessing.

Hello friends, in this blog today we will talk about what was the name of Surpanakha or Surpnakha's husband, and the real name of Surpanakha!
 Friends, Surpanakha was the sister of Ravana, her real name was Supnakha which means beautiful nails's woman.
Because Surpanakha was so beautiful that men were fascinated by seeing her nails, that's why her name was Supnakha.
What was the name of Surpanakha's husband: - Surpanakha's husband's name was Vidhutjivh, who was the commander of a king named Kalakeya. Once there was a war between Kalkeya and Ravana and where Kalakeya's army was headed by Vidutjivah, on the other side of Ravana.  Ravan himself was leading the army.
The situation was difficult in front of Vidhutjivah as it was his duty to protect his kingdom but if he did so, he had his own brother-in-law in front.
Surpanakha had explained to Ravana that do not invade the capital of Kalakeya, but Ravana was blinded by the longing for the expansion of his kingdom.
 Vidhutjiv also decided to stand firm on his duty and stood in the battle in front of Ravana.
Ravana and Vidutjivah fought and Ravana killed Vidutjivah because Surpanakha was the wife of Vidutjiva so she was very sad and swore that one day she would destroy the entire family of Ravana.
 Therefore, she went to Shri Rama and started harassing him because she had understood that only Rama can defeat Ravana, so she encouraged enmity.
 And because of Surpanakha, there was war between Ram and Ravana.
 And in the end, Shri Ram won.
Now let's move on to today's basic topic: -
 Since birth, Shurpanakha's image has always been viewed with hatred due to the demonic kami and brutally massacred.  Even after doing penance for crores of births, even sages and saints are unable to see God.

Not only did Shurpanakha get the privilege of talking to Shri Ram, but Shri Ram also give her a oppertunity to talking Lakshmanji and also provide darshana of Bhaktiswaroopa Adhya Shakti Jagat Janani Jani Sita Mata.  Actually, the mystery of all this story is hidden in Shurpanakha's former birth.
There remains a curiosity as to what works Shurpanakha had done that resulted in her getting the privilege of meeting God. Humans and wise people always contemplate her, so let us know the story of Surpanakha's previous birth.
Surpanakha was Indra's nymph named Nayantara in a previous life.  It was counted among the prominent Apsaras like Urvashi Rambha Maneka etc.  Once the dance of Apsaras was going on in Indra's heaven, at that time Nayantara was also pointing with eyes while dancing. On seeing this, Indra was distracted and pleased over her.  Since then Nayantara became Indra's beloved.  At that time, a sage named Barja was doing penance on earth. Indra sent her to the earth to dissolve the austerity of the sage as he was pleased with Nayantara. But when the sage's penance was broken, he cursed her to be demonic.  On apologizing to the sage, the sage told her that you will have darshan of God in demonic form.  Then the same Apsara was born as Surpanakha after body sacrifice.
She had determined that, she would receive him when she saw God.  She went to Sri Rama Prabhu, making the same Nayantara form. But she is making a mistake that she has expressed her desire to get Lord Shri Ram as her husband. There is the process of attaining Parabrahma, only through devotion or vairagya (quietness ) can one achieve Parambrahma.  Surpanakha did not go to Bhakti Sita and Vairagi Lakshman, but she directly to Parambrahma and that was her biggest mistake. She wanted to separate Bhakti by becoming the wife of Shri Ram directly.  Apart from this, if she had taken shelter of vairagya, definetly  she had gained God. But not even taking renunciation, that is, not going to Laxman in the form of vairagya, and having come in ego and went directly to God, ego had come in her.  She says that there is no woman like me in the whole world, this means that there is no woman eligible in the world like me to be your wife.
It is not possible for the egoist to find God, yet he is sent to Laxman in the form of vairaga to get proper knowledge, so that she can know the correct process of meeting God.  Vairagya's form Lakshmana thought that the demon could not be to vairagi, so sent her back to the Lord, then the Lord said to her that I am in control of the devotee, then Surpanakha went to Sita Mata .
She thought that if the Lord is in control of this devotee, then I should eat this devotee. Therefore, Laxman ji got angry and cut his nose and dislocated the organ.
Then Surpanakha's Gyan Chakshu(Knowledge eye) opened up and became his assistant to carry out the work of the Lord.  After killing Ravana Kumbhakaran Meghnath etc. demon by the hand of God, She went to Pushkar to adopt the proper process of attainment of God and standing in the water started meditating on Lord Shiva.
10000 years later Lord Shiva appeared to Surpanakha and gave her a boon that in the Dwapara Yuga, Shri Rama would take the incarnation of Shri Krishna.  Then you will get Lord Shri Krishna in Kuvja form, then Shri Krishna will correct your hump and he will give you your beautiful Nayantara Apsara seductive form.  So friends, this was story according to which Lord Shri Krishna married Surpanakha.

Mandodari told Hanuman ji the secret of Ravana's death.


Mandodari told Hanuman ji the secret of Ravana's death


The present time is becoming so amazing.  People have started quarreling over small things and nowadays a new news is published in the newspapers which people call as "Road Rage".


What a wonderful activity that someone's car touched your car and you are in anger, if any overtook your car, then you turn in anger and a quarrel begins.  We also forget that our parents or wife and children are waiting at home.  What will happen to them if something untoward happens?  What will happen to their expectations?

Competition is good, but what is there that can kill someone.  It is only natural to feel angry, but what if the family suffers from it?  Competition also takes place among devotees but in a healthy form.  The purpose of the devotee is to serve God and please him. While serving God, gradually his mind becomes so clean that it becomes his nature to encourage others.  Jealousy is not visible at all.  Perhaps this is why our elders used to tell us that son do everything but also worship God because he knew that this will make our mind clean and at least we will not quarrel with anyone and we have a sense of respect to others and we will not be jealous by someone's progress.

When Lord Sri Rama went to Lanka to take Sita ji, Ravana sent his relatives and sons to battle, but the war between Rama and Ravana continued from Tritiya of Ashwin Shukla Paksha till Dashami Tithi.  For a total of thirty-two days, there was a war between Rama and Ravana, Ravana was knowledgeable as well as very powerful.  It was very difficult to kill him.

The world knows that Vibhishan ji told Lord Shri Ramchandra ji that Ravana would die if he shot an arrow in Ravana's navel. God knows to everything , did he not know that Ravana would die by hitting with an arrow in Ravana's navel?  He knew, but the lover of devotees despised his honor in order to increase the value of the devotee.

But Vibhishan told Prabhu Shriram that Ravana could be killed only when his navel was hit.  Also, Vibhishana had also told about a special arrow.  With which Ravana could be killed.  Without this it was impossible to kill Ravana.

Vibhishana gave the solution to kill Ravana, Ram Bhakta Hanuman ji allowed Rama devotee Vibhishan to take credit for this, while Ravana's slaughter is at the root of Shree Hanuman. Ravana, Kumbhakaran and Vibhishana did hard penance to please Brahma. When Brahma ji appeared and everyone asked for his boon.  Ravana asked that he be immortal.

Brahma Ji said, "To give immortality is not to possible of his power."

 On Ravan's request again, Brahma Ji gave an arrow to Ravana and said that take this arrow and I can do so much that till this arrow is not hit in your navel then you will not end.  Ravana took that arrow and got it placed inside the pillar just in front of his royal throne inside his palace.

In the battle, when Lord Shri Ramchandra separates the head of Ravana from his body, then Ravan's head falls on the ground, but in a few moments he again gets back to his place.  Many times when this happened, Vibhishan gave the reason for Ravana not to die.  Hearing everything, Hanuman Ji said that you should not worry and tell where the arrow is.  Vibhishan ji said that I do not know this but only Ravan or his wife Mandodari know where this arrow is.

What was it then? Hanuman Ji took the form of a Brahmin after taking orders from God and started touring the famous places of Lanka as a great astrologer.  In the form of Jyotishacharya, Hanuman Ji used to tell the future of the people of Lanka wherever he went, and also tell the glory of Ravana to everyone.

After several days, the news reached the ears of Mandodari that a Brahmin is telling amazing things about Ravana.  Mandodari was also anxious and called the Brahmin.  The Brahmin told wonderful things about Ravana also say another thing that Mandodari did not know.  In many cases, he also told about the penance of Ravana and the boon of Brahma ji and some started speaking in such a way that the arrow is not safe.  Mandodari came to his notice and said to him, making sure that the arrow is safe.

The Brahmin said that I also know that the arrow is safe in every way and only Ravan and you know about it, but I am afraid that if you will let anyone in your female society fellow or any spy of those forest dwellers show that arrow. Impressed by Hanuman's eloquence, he left Mandodari's mouth that O Brahmandev!  You can be absolutely sure that any detective can not find or see that arrow because that arrow is very safely placed in the pillar in front of his throne in the royal palace.

On hearing this, Hanuman ji came into the real form and with a punch with the slogan of "Jai Shri Ram", he broke the pillar and took away the arrow from it and gave it to Lord Shri Ramchandra Ji and after then Ravana's slaughter was possible .

Shri Ram  attacked Ravana's navel with the same arrow.  In this way Ravana came to an end.  If this mystery could not be known, Ravana would not have ended despite the fact that Vibhishan had told Shri Rama that Ravana's death was in the navel. Despite this, the truth is that Mandodari, even though mistakenly, had given such information about Ravana to the opposing side which should not have been given.  … And if this information had not been made public, Ravana would never have been killed, Sita ji would never have been released and Sri Rama's vow to kill Ravana would never have been fulfilled.

Perhaps the location and time of each destiny event is fixed.


Perhaps the location and time of each destiny event is fixed.


Today I have brought an article on such a subject, on which there can be a long debate. Some people may accept it or reject it.

1st story:-

Once it was very cold.  All humans, animals and birds all were suffering.  In such a way, a vulture was sitting on a tree's top in the sunlight to overcome his cold.  At the same time, Yamraj came out from there.

As soon as he saw the vulture sitting on the tree, his eyes got stressed but he said nothing and went his way.  He went own way, but the vulture's life dried up after seeing his attitude.  Now he was shivering with fear not to cold .  In the meantime, Narada ji came to pronounce 'Narayan-Narayan'.  Narada ji saw the trembling vulture and stopped and asked,  vulture are your health good?  You trembling very badly, what's the matter?  Tell me if you need any help.

The vulture stuttering with great difficulty told that Yamraj had just left from here.  I did not even make any mistake, knowingly or unknowingly, yet he has gone to see me with a very crooked eye.  Looked very angry.  This makes me feel very fear.  Narada ji thought after two minutes and said that you do one thing. There is a hill called Ramtek at a distance of 100 yojan(one yojan=12 to15 KM) from here.  Go hide in his cave , till then I talk to Yamraj and ask the reason for his displeasure.

The vulture obeyed him and took refuge in the hill of Ramtek.  In the meantime, Narada ji went to Yamraj and asked what happened today, Maharaj, you had attained anger at that helpless vulture early  morning. Yamraj said, "Oh nothing, as soon as I got out, I saw that vulture in front."  Tonight is the culmination of his life which is to be completed in the hills of Ramtek a hundred yojan (one yojan=12 to15 KM) away.  I was thinking that it should be there, what is it doing here.

 Now , Narada ji could not understand whether he did good or bad.



2nd story:-


One day the thought of Garuda Dev, the vehicle of Lord Vishnu, came to mind that why not visit the earth once.  During his visit, when Garuda Dev reached Lord Vishnu's patil putra temple,  then he saw a pigeon trembling while sitting on the platform.  Seeing his position, he wondered in the courtyard of the Lord's temple there is no fear and why is this pigeon trembling despite sitting in the sun? He asked the reason for trembling with that pigeon, that pigeon first bowed to him and after that said that Yamraj came here shortly before the you came.  When his eyes fell on me, he said that this unfortunate creature will die as soon as the sun rises tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow is the last day of my life, how can anyone know how to control themselves?  That is why I am trembling with fear of death, I do not want to die yet, please protect my life and save me from this trouble. Hearing the scorn of that pigeon pleaded, he felt pity on him as well as his thought that why should not Yamraj be challenged.  He pressed the pigeon in its huge claws and led it away from the temple courtyard to a safe cave.  Garuda Dev flew away by making the cave situated on the Malayagandh mountain safe.

From there, he flew directly towards Yamraj's city of Yamlok, in his mind he was eager to tell Yamraj about his success in protecting pigeon's life.  He wanted to tell Yamraj that he had failed his plan by protecting the life of the pigeon. When Yamraj came to know that Garuda Dev himself had come to Yamlok, he honored him and placed him on the sit and asked the purpose of coming to Yamlok.

Then Garuda Dev very proudly told him that the pigeon that was about to die today has saved by me.  On hearing him, Yamraj smiled and asked Chitragupta about that pigeon.  Seeing in his book, Chitragupta Maharaj said that the pigeon living in the temple of Lord Vishnu's patil putra temple will become the food of the snake in a cave in the Malayagandh mountain just after sunrise today, and that incident has been completed just a while ago.

Hearing this, Garuda Dev's surprise  and he went directly to the cave where he saw that the snake had eaten that pigeon.  He was very sad to see that instead of protecting the pigeon, he himself had brought it to the mouth of death.  After reaching Baikuntha Lok, Garuda Dev was sitting in solitude with a sad heart, then Lord Vishnu understood his agony and explained to him that at the time of birth,  the time of death is also be fixed and the law of Brahma cannot be changed.

Even if we look at the ancient texts of Hinduism, we also see many such incidents in which prophecy has been spoken.  Like it was already predicted that Krishna would kill Kansa.  In the Ramayana, it was already determined that Lord Rama would come to Shabri's ashram and also give moksha to Ahilya.
One such mention is made in Tulsidas ji well in Ramcharitmanas.  In which he is explaining that no one can do anything in whatever is already scheduled.
That means, it is what Sri Rama has already decided .  Who can expand their thinking by arguments ?

A prediction can be made only when something like a future exists.  If nothing has happened then how can it be told with clarity beforehand.  This also proves that whatever is happening with us has already been determined.
There have been many sages in our history who were trikaldarshi.  Maharishi Valmiki had written before the Uttarakand of Ramayana when incident were took place.  Even today, there are such sages-saints in the ancient caves of the Himalayas who have the ability to see past and future by meditating.
It is mentioned in the Balmiki Ramayana that not only Rama and Sita but also Dashrath ji and Guru Vashistha knew beforehand what was going to happen in the future.
Durvasa Rishi had already told Dashrath ji that his son Rama would have to suffer 14 years of exile.  Guru Matang also knew that Shreerama would come to his ashram one day and give  darshan to Shabri.
Devaki's eighth son would kill Kansa, but Kansa himself also knew this prophecy.

Story Of Kubja's Previous Birth


Story of Kubja's previous birth



In Indian mythological texts, Kubja is one such character whose interesting and surprising stories are found in relation to births.  In the eleventh chapter of Garga Samhita, there is a story of King Bahulashv.
Once, while listening to the story from Narada Muni, Bahulashv asked him, “Muniver.  That Sairandhri Kubja had done which type of  hard penance in her former life, as a result of which the Supreme Lord Shri Krishna pleased upon her.
Because his less happiness is also rare for the gods?  On this, Devrishi Narada told him that it was a long time ago.  In the Treta Yuga, when Surpnakha saw Lord Rama in the Panchavati, seeing his attractive human form, she became enamored with facinated by her heart.
But she saw that Rama's affection is not going on her at all, while Suparnakha was wandering as a very lavanayamayi( beautiful) at that time.  She noted that Ram was extremely disgusted and no interest  upon seeing her and his only affection was towards Bhagwati Sita ji.
Due to seeing this scene , Surpnakha burning in this jealousy, rushed towards her to eat Sita ji, but Lakshman ji was alert.  He (Laxman ji) also immediately cut off his nose and ears.  Laxman ji wanted to kill her but Lord Rama forbade him to do so, he only asked Laxman ji to punish her and as a result Laxman ji cut off the nose and ears of that Surpnakha.
Disgusted by her insults, Surpnakha, burning in anger, came to her brother Ravana and prayed to Ravana to kidnap Sita.  When Ravana kidnapped Sita ji, she once again found Rama Lakshmana alone in the forest and came to pray (to Lord Rama) to marry her.
But even this time her wish was not fulfilled.  Now she was completely disappointed.  In the end, when Ravana was killed and also Rama without sita did not interested by her beauty, she was sadded and disappointed, she remained in the Pushkar region, meditating on the form of Lord Shiva and started penace.
In the end, when the Lord Mahadeva appeared and asked her to ask for boon, she wished Rama as her husband.  On this, Lord Shankar gave her the boon of getting him from Krishna form in the future i.e. Dwapara Yuga.  The same Suparnakha became Kubja in Dwapara.
She was born in Mathura as Kubja, a demon named Surpnakha, who had the ability to change the form according to her desire and she became beloved of Krishna only by the boon of Devadhidev Mahadev.  

The story of Kubja is given in Sri Lomash Ramayana in another way.

According to that texts, at the time of Ramavatar, Kaikayi Maid Manthara was Krishna Priya Kubja in Dwapar yuga.  In a summary , the story goes like this: The people of Ayodhya came to know that instead of crowning their beloved Prince Rama, he was being sent for exile for fourteen years. And behind all this,  Kaikeyi's maid Manthara has the hand of this incident , so they all were enraged at the Manthara and those enraged Ayodhya's people asked Shri Lomash ji, “Lord! Why is this manthra opposed to Rama?  Whereas animals, birds, fools, schloar, trees etc. are  lovers of our Rama ”.

To this Lomash ji replied, “Manthara was the granddaughter of Prahlada and daughter of Virochan in the previous birth.  Even in that birth, its name was Manthara. When her younger brother Bali was in his mother's womb,  then the gods plan to cheated Virochan,  gods taking the form of a Brahmin and asked Virochan to donate his entire life to the Brahmins. So Dani(donor) Virochan gave up his body.  After which the demons became destitute.  They went to the shelter of Manthara.  Manthara assured them of defense.  Due to which the demons Shambar, Maya, Baan etc. came out for war, but they lost to the gods.
Then Manthara became fiercely angry at the gods and  in anger she tied all the gods through Nagpasha.  Narada Ji requested  to Lord Narayana for solution to this misfortune of gods  . Lord Vishnu gave immense power to Indra by which Indra not only cut the bond of Nagpasha but with the same power Indra defeated Manthara and made her unconscious.
Due to the influence of that divine power, Manthara's body became crippled, it became Kubja.  The demon women also ridiculed her from behind.  In the next birth after death, she was born in the same form in the Kashmir region and became the maid of Kaikayi to seek vengeance from Lord Vishnu, and she interrupted the establishment of Ram Rajya, due to which she was in infamy the whole world.
Due to her this infamy the lord saved her at the time of Krishnavatar.

"Rishyamuk Parvat" This is the same mountain where Vanararaj Bali was also afraid to go, and when Bali became thirsty for the blood of his brother Sugriva, then Sugriva made this Rishyamuk mountain his residence.
Because Sugriva knew that when Vanararaj Bali and the demon Dudumbhi fought, Bali killed Dudumbhi and threw away one yojan(approx 12-15 KM) to his body, and a few sprinkles of blood of dead Dudumbhi flying in the air fell into the ashram of the Matang Rishi, who was located on the Rishyamuk mountain .           
So the sage Matang came to know from Tapobal that this sin was done by Bali, then he cursed Bali that if Baali will come in the one yojan area of ​​Rishiymuk mountain in future, then his death is certain . So Bali got to scared after hearing the name Rishyamuk mountain.

How was Rishyamuk mountain get named Rishyamuk: -

In Tretayuga, there used to be a giant monkey named Rikshiraj on Rishyamuk mountain, once someone asked him "O Rikshiraj how this mountain was named Rishyamuk mountain.
Riskhraja then said, Ravana, after receiving a boon from Brahmaji, started creating a ruckus on the earth, and began to obstruct the yajna-havan of the sages, so many sages persecuted by him formed a group, and mute on this mountain. Muk (Silently) started opposing Ravana.
During this time, when Ravana was going from there for the purpose of conquering the world, he saw that millions of sages were gathered on that mountain, so when Ravana asked his minister, why are so many Mahatma Rishi gathered here.  So the minister said that "O Raksharaj (Demon king), all these sages have gathered here to stay Muk (silent) to oppose you. Hearing this, Ravana got very angry and angry Ravan ordered to kill all the sages. 
After getting the orders of Ravana, all the demons attacked on those sages, the bones and remains of those sages became this mountain.

Story of Ravana's wife Mandodari

Story of Ravana's wife Mandodari

What effect did Mandodari's life have on a mistake and a curse?  Today we will know in today's article.


An important character of the Ramayana was Ravana's wife Mandodari, who told Ravan from time to time the difference between right and wrong deeds.  Lankapati Ravana's wife's name was Mandodari.  Mandodari was a Pativrata (Virtuous wife) woman.  Mandodari is also compared to Ahalya in terms of Pativrata dharma.  But there was a big reason behind how Mandodari became Ravana's wife.  Mandodari knew that Ravana is very cruel and tyrannical.  Despite this, Mandodari had to accept Ravana as her husband. 

Who doesn't know about Ravana's wife Mandodari?  But did you know that Mandodari was a frog in his former life. According to the description found in the Puranas, Lankapati Ravana's wife was a frog.  Today I am going to tell you about the same legend which reflects this. So let's know about it.

According to the story:-----

We have been hearing the story of Ramayana since childhood and we also know about its main characters.  But there were some characters in the Ramayana whose role was very important, but people could not know much about those .. One such character was Mandodari, most people do not have any special knowledge about the wife of Lankapati Ravana.  Let's tell you about some interesting and unheard things related to Mandodari in my special article today.

Mandodari, who you know as Ravana's wife, was a Apsara(nymph) in a previous life.  Oh!Yes, according to legend, once a beautiful apsara named Madhura reached the Mount Kailash in the absence of Goddess Parvati and went there and tried to attract Lord Shiva with her form, beauty  and art.
But then Goddess Parvati reached there and seeing her action cursed the apsara that she would remain in the well as a paddock for 12 years.  

However, later on the insistence of Lord Shiva, Mother Parvati also revealed her curse and said that Madhura can come back to her true form only after harsh penance.

Madhura became a paddock due to  mother Parvati's curse and according to her, she started doing harsh penance to get rid of the curse .. After her many years passed, when the god of Asuras, Mayasura and his apsara wife Hema wished for a daughter  and start to doing penance . Meanwhile, Madhura too became free from curse due to her harsh penance. 



As soon as she was free from curse , Madhura came out of the well, Mayasur-Hema saw their tenacity coming true and they adopted Madhura as a daughter at that very moment.  After that, Mayasur has named his adopted daughter Mandodari.  Later this Mandodari became the wife of Ravana. 

The mythological belief about the marriage of Ravana and Mandodari is that once Ravana came to meet Mayasur, he was fascinated to see his beautiful daughter there and expressed his desire to marry Mandodari, but Mayasur rejected the offer. But at the same time, Mandodari knew that Ravana is very powerful with egoistic attitude, so she agreed to marry him for fear of him and for her father's safety.

Then Ravana forcibly married Mandodari, Mandodari marries Ravana despite not wanting, because she knew that if she did not marry Ravana then my father's death was certain.  Mandodari used to try whole life to continued to make Ravana realize the truth.  By this marriage Ravana and Mandodari had three sons, Akshay Kumar, Meghnad and Atikay. 
Mandodari was a virtuous woman, but she knew that her husband was walking on the wrong path and when Ravana brought Mother Sita to Lanka, Mandodari also requested Ravana to send Sita back but the arrogant Ravan did not listen to his wife . However, when this resulted in war, Mandodari wished for the victory of Ravana by following the dharma of a virtuous woman. 
The originator of the chess game is considered to be Mandodari and in the scriptures, Mandodari has also been considered as the  CHIR KUMARI(everlasting girl).  She was one of the PANCHKANYA( five girls) who were Ahilya, Tara, Kunti, Draupadi and Mandodari respectively.  These five have also been considered as Mahasati.

Lord Rama returned to Ayodhya after the death of Ravana, but before that he handed over the kingdom of Lanka to Vibhishan, Ravana's brother.  But a question also arises that what happened to Ravana's family after this?  What happened to his beloved wife Mandodari, who lost her three sons, how Mandodari spent her life ahead.  If all these questions are coming in your mind too, then let us know the answer to these questions.

Ravana, despite being a scholar, was tyrannical. He had no value for moral principles in life.  Even relatives for him did not matter.  Shriram had to come to this earth to give rid of his atrocities.



Mandodari was a religious and sensible woman full of superior thought , civilized behavior .  It is said that when Ravana asked her father for her hand when he was fascinated by Mandodari. Mandodari agreed to the marriage Ravana, due to his devotion to Shiva and he being a Brahmin. Mandodari accepted to be live with Ravana.  Mandodari opposed every wrong act of Ravana.  Mandodari had termed the abduction of Sita Mata as wrong. Mandodari always inspired Ravana for good works and prevented him from walking on the wrong path.  Even after the abduction of Sita, Mandodari had told Ravana to send Sita to Rama with respect but Ravana did not listen to her.
According to the scripture Ramayana, King Ravana of Lanka lost and died in battle with Lord Rama.  After the death of Ravana, the ongoing war in Lanka came to an end.  After the war, everyone wanted to know about Rama, Sita and Lakshmana.  But what happened to Ravana's wife Mandodari after the war.  Hardly anyone could know and few people even tried to know about it. 

After conquering Lanka by Lord Rama, after winning Ravana, Vibhishana finally became the king of Lanka.  But a question arises that what happened to Maharani Mandodari?  Mandodari As soon as this name comes, a picture of such a queen emerges in our mind, in her feet every glory of the world was available . She was the daughter of an apsara who was very beautiful and attractive.  One such dedicated queen who herself was the queen of the demon Emperor Ravana.  The queen of the gold kingdom, Mandodari is one such character of Ramayana who was never properly understood, her identity always remained confined to the wife of Lankapati Ravana.  And after Ravana's death,  her chapter is believed then it is completely finished.
If we talk most of Ramayana, then most people have more curiosity to know about Ram, his wife Sita and Ravana.  But very few people know or are curious to know what happened to Queen Mandodari after Ravana's death.

Mandodari knew that Ravana is a devotee of Lord Shiva, so she agreed to marry Ravana for the safety of her father.  Ravana and Mandodari had three sons.  Ravana was very egoistic and because of this, Mandodari knew that there is nothing but destruction on the path on which he is walking.  Mandodari tried many times so that Ravana could walk on the right path but it had no effect. Mandodari wanted Ravana to return Lord Rama's wife Sita to him, because she knew about the curse in which Ravana's death was going to happen to Lord Rama.  But when Ram Ravan war took place, she supported Ravana like a good wife.  After the war, Mandodari went to the  battle ground and was very sad to see the destruction of her husband, son and other relatives there.




Lord Rama proposed to Mandodari to marry Vibhishan after Ravana's death.  Lord Ram knew that Mandodari is a good woman.  That is why he was worried about her.  But Mandodari rejected this proposal.  On this, Shriram explained. It is said that after this, Ram once again went to explain Mandodari with both Sita and Hanuman.  After convincing everyone, Mandodari agreed and got married to Vibhishan.

It is also said that after the death of Ravana and the Lankan ministers advised Mandodari to marrying with Vibhishan and again re-establish Lanka and Mandodari did the same, but Mandodari later separated from it.



After the slaying of Ravana, these were some special things related to Mandodari, though all these things are based on legends.
Today the article written about Mandodari.  She shows the loyalty of Mandodari. Now you all can understand how the life of Queen Mandodari must have been.  While writing the article, we have tried to write all aspects of Mandodari's life, but it seems that there is something lacking in it, as if the inclusion of a story or incident is left.  That's why many things have been repeated again and again. You should read the article and increase your knowledge.  And I think of a new topic to write.  But at the same time I try to gather more information about Mandodari.
