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



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.

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.

What is the reason behind offering sindoor to Hanuman ji?


What is the reason behind offering sindoor to Hanuman ji?  Know here

Why Hanuman ji is offered sindoor, know- religious significance

Sindoor has great importance in Hinduism.  Sindoor is considered to be auspicious.  Sindoor is also very fond by Hanumanji. Though many Gods and Goddesses like Ganeshji, Mataji and Bhairav ​​Maharaj are offered sindoor, but Hanumanji is mainly offered sindoor.  Today I am telling you that why sindoor is offered to Hanumanji?
Hanumanji is a dear devotee of Shriramji.  Hanumanji also takes the same thing from which Shri Ramji benefits.  Rama and Sita always sit in his heart.  He is ready to do anything to get the blessings of Lord Rama.

Sri Hanuman, the supreme devotee of Lord Rama, is the one who imparts strength, wisdom and knowledge. Devotees offer sindoor to their adorable Sri Hanuman with great love.  It is believed that offering sindoor pleased Bajrang Bali. But have you ever wondered why Hanuman ji is offered sindoor and why does he always wear a sindoor colored cloth?  Though sindoor is a symbol of good luck and energy, but two stories are popular about offering sindoor to Hanuman ji. Lord Hanuman is an ardent devotee of Shri Rama.  Hence he is also called Rambhakta Hanuman.  Worshiping Lord Hanuman, the supreme devotee of Shri Rama, removes every obstacle in life.  Lord Hanuman is worshiped on Tuesday.  Many people offer sindoor to Hanuman ji on completion of the vow.

There are two very interesting stories behind offering sindoor to Lord Hanuman.  Which only few people know.

According to this legend, Lord Hanuman once saw Mother Sita applying vermilion in her forehead.  Seeing this, he wonderfully asked her why she had applied this sindoor on her forehead. Sita ji while answering the question of Brahmachari Hanuman said that by applying sindoor, my lord (Husband) has longevity and he remains happy .  She also said that my husband is be pleased on me. Hanuman ji was very happy to hear this.  He thought that if Shri Ram could be happy with sindoor with little quantity , then if I applied sindoor on the whole body, he would be very happy with me also and by applying sindoor on the whole body, Shri Ram would become immortal. Hanuman ji presented himself in front of Shri Ram by applying sindoor on the whole body.  When he reached the meeting, Shri Ram started laughing at seeing him and was very happy to see Hanuman ji's love.  Seeing Sri Rama happy, Hanuman ji became strongly convinced of Sita ji's words.  For this reason, sindoor is offered to the devotee Hanuman.
Ramji was shocked when he saw Hanuman in this form.  When Rama asked Hanuman the reason for applying sindoor all over his body, Hanumanji clearly said that this will make you immortal and I too will get your affection like mother Sita.  Hearing this, Shrirama got emotional and embraced Hanumanji.  Since That Time, sindoor is very dear to Hanumanji and Hanumanji is happy on offering sindoor.
If we talk about scientific vision, then according to science, every color has a special type of energy.  The sindoor is a symbol of energy and when the devotee tilak(applying sindoor on head) with it after offering Hanumanji, the energy center between the two eyes becomes active.  Doing this brings good thoughts to the mind.  At the same time, the energy of God is attained by offering ghee mixed sindoor to Hanumanji, obstacles are eliminated.
According to another story, when Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya with his wife Sita after the Lanka victory, the monkey army was given a farewell.  Mother Sita took off the garlands studded with precious pearls and diamonds from her neck and wore him while giving  presents to Hanuman ji. Lord Rama was not mentioned in any of the beads or diamonds of the garland.  Therefore Hanuman ji was not happy.  Then Sita ji applied sindoor on the forehead of Hanuman ji.  Sita ji told Hanuman ji that she does not have anything more important than this.  Since then Hanuman ji started to be offered sindoor.  Sindoor is a symbol of boundless energy.  This brings positiveness in life.  Hanuman ji gets positive energy by offering sindoor and oil , red cloth and touching the idol.  People who are suffering from Shani Dev must offer oil and sindoor to Bajrang Bali.
Sindoor is also given great importance in Hinduism.  According to Indian tradition, sindoor is considered the crown of any suhagan's (married wowam whose husband is alive) forehead.  Sindoor is also used for the well-being of married life.  It is said that sindoor is mainly orange in color.  Women use it for good luck and makeup.  A marriage without sindoor cannot be imagined.  It is linked to Mars.  Therefore it is considered to be auspicious.

Story of maa Vaishno Devi


Story of maa Vaishno Devi

You must have heard the name of Vaishno Mata of Jammu.  Today, I am telling you the story of her, which is listened and heard in Jammu and Kashmir for years.

It is believed that once the mother of the mountains, pleased with the devotion of her supreme devotee Pandit Sridhar, saved his respect and gave proof of her existence to the whole creation. 2 km from present-day Katra town's in the village of Hansali situated at a distance of, Pandit Sridhar, the supreme devotee of mother Vaishnavi lived. He used to be sad because he was childless. One day he called for kid girls to worship Navratri.  Mother Vaishno herself sat among them in disguise as a girl. After the worship, all the girls went away, but mother Vaishno Devi remained there and said to Shridhar - 'Invite everyone to your home Bhandara'. Sridhar agreed to that divine girl and Bhandara's message gave the nearby villages.  
While returning from there, along with Baba Bhairavnath ji, he also invited his other disciples for food. All the villagers were surprised to get the invitation of food, which girl is she who wants to get food to so many people? After this, many villagers came to Sridhar's house and gathered for food. Then the girl 's form mother Vaishno Devi started serving food to everyone with a amazing pot.
While serving food, the girl went to Bhairavnath.  Then he said that I would rather eat meat and drink than kheer-puri.  Then the girl's form mother explained to him that this is the food of the Brahmin's house , here does not use to eat meat. But Bhairavnath deliberately kept his point and stand for this matter. When Bhairavnath wanted to catch the girl, the mother knew his treachery.  Mother changed into air and flew towards Trikuta mountain.  Bhairavnath also followed her. It is believed that there was always Pawanaputra Hanuman stay around  to protect the mother.  According to the belief, at the time also Hanuman was with her to protect mata. When Hanuman ji felt thirsty, at his request, Mata drove an arrow from the bow on mountain and drew a stream and washed her hair in that water. Today this holy water stream is known as Banganga, whose drinking or bathing of holy water removes all the tiredness and suffering of the devotees. During this, Mata entered a cave and meditated for nine months.  Bhairavnath also followed her and came there. Then a sage said to Bhairavnath that what you consider a girl is Adishakti Jagadamba.  So give up the pursuit of that superpower. Bhairavnath did not listen to the sage.  Mata then made her way out of the other side of the cave.  This cave is still famous as Ardhkumari or Adikumari or Garbhajoon. Before the Ardhkumari is also mother's charan paduka.  This is the place where Mata turned around and saw Bhairavnath. Out of the cave, the girl assumed the form of a goddess.  Mata warns Bhairavnath and asks him to return.  Still he did not agree.  Mata went inside the cave.  Then Hanumanji fought with Bhairava outside the cave to protect Mata.
Bhairav ​​still did not give up, when Veer Hanuman started becoming weak, then Mata Vaishnavi took the form of Mahakali and killed Bhairavnath.  The head of Bhairavnath was beheaded and fell into the Bhairav ​​valley of the Trikuta mountain, 8 km from the Bhavan. That place is known as the temple of Bhaironath.  The place where Mother Vaishno Devi killed the stubborn Bhairavnath is famous as the Pavitra Gupha(holy cave) or 'Bhavan'.  At this place Maa Kali (right), Maa Saraswati (middle) and Maa Lakshmi (left) are entombed in the cave as Pindi. The combined form of these three is called the form of Mother Vaishno Devi.  Along with these three grand pindis are statues and yantras etc. installed by some devout devotees and former kings of Jammu Kashmir.  It is said that after his slaughter, Bhairavnath repented of his mistake and begged for forgiveness from the mother. Mata Vaishno Devi knew that Bhairava's main intention behind attacking her was to attain salvation, she not only liberated Bhairava from the cycle of rebirth, but gave him a boon saying that my darshan will not be considered complete till then, Unless a devotee will see you after me. According to the same belief, even today, after visiting Goddess Maa Vaishno Devi, the devotees go uphill to climb to see Bhairavnath by covering  8 kilometers.  Meanwhile, Vaishno Devi assumed the shape of a rock with three pindi (head) and meditated forever. Meanwhile, Pandit Sridhar became impatient.  He headed the same way towards Mount Trikuta, which he had dreamed of, finally he reached the cave gate, he made her rituals of worshiping the 'Pindis' in many ways, the goddess was pleased with his worship, she was in front of him.  Appeared and blessed him.  Since then, Sridhar and his descendants have been worshiping the goddess Maa Vaishno Devi.

Story of Vaishno Devi's origin

The glory of Maa Vaishno Devi located in Jammu is incomparable.  The devotees reach the levee of Maiya with their wishes. Bhaktas Vatsala Mata loves her devotees like her children and fulfills wishes.  No one devotee returns disappointed from the levee of the devout mother.  Mother Vaishno Devi sits on the 'Trikut Parvat' as the three pindis of Mahakali, Lakshmi, and Mahasaraswati.  Where every year many devotees come to see the mother and climb hard steps of hill.

The Ashuras did tortured many times on the earth and when the earth started sinking from the burden of their atrocities, then the divine powers incarnated in the divine form and have liberated the earth from sin . Once Maa Lakshmi, Maa Kali, and Maa Saraswati decided to create a Divya Kanya(Divine Girl) with all their powers to end the tyranny of the Daityas in the Treta Yuga and to protect the saints. A girl appeared from the divine light coming out of their eyes, with a trident in her hand and situated on the lion .  Looking at the three great powers, the girl said, "O great powers, why have you generate me, please tell me what is the purpose of my creation."

Then the three great Goddesses said - O girl to protect the dharma and to destroy the iniquity, we have produced you, now you obey us and take birth in South India as the daughter of Ratnakar Sagar.  There you will be born out of the part of Lord Vishnu, you will do the work of righteousness by self inspiration.
Taking the permission of Mahadevis, the divine girl went to Sagar's house at the same time and got situated in the womb of his wife.  That girl was born on time.  The face of that girl was amazing and supernatural like the Sun.  Ratnakar Sagar named that girl as Trikuta. In a few days Trikuta attracted all the sages to her with her divine powers, that is, all the sages started considering her as a divine avatar.  Trikuta used to worship Lord Vishnu very strongly and ascendant, for this reason everyone called her Vaishnavi.

When became 9 years old she came to know Lord Vishnu has incarnated in this earth as Lord Shri Ram . Then she considered Lord Rama as a husband and decided to do hard penance to get him.

After a few more days, Trikuta went to the beach to meditate with the permission of her parents.  She started living in a small hut disguised as a Sadhvi.
In those days Shri Ram's wife Sita was abducted by Ravan.  One day while searching Sita, Shri Ram ji, with his Vaanar sena, came there and saw that divine girl meditating and said - O beautiful lady, what is that reason or what is the purpose for which you are doing such austere meditation.
Trikuta opened her eyes when asked by Shri Ram, and Shri Ram Ji is standing with his brother Laxman and Hanuman.  Seeing him, the joy of Trikuta was not limited.  After she greeted the Lord with happiness, she said with a gracious gesture - To receive you as husband is the reason of my penance.  Therefore, please adopt me and give me the results of my penance.

Then Lord Shri Ram Ji said - O Sumukhi, in this incarnation, I have decided to be  kept one wife.  Therefore, I cannot fulfill your desire in this birth, but you have meditated hard for the purpose of achieving me, therefore I promise you that while returning from Lanka with Sita, I will come to you in change disguise form and at that time if you will recognize me.  Then I will adopt you.

Shri Ram ji went towards Lanka with his army.  In Lanka, he had a fierce battle with Ravan and eventually Ravan died.  After that riding on Pushpak viman were coming  with Sita, then he stopped the viman and said to Sita and Laxman - you all stay here, I will come in a while. After that Shri Ram Ji took the form of an old monk and reached in front of Trikuta, Trikuta could not recognize him, then Shri Ram Ji appeared in his real form and said - O Devi, according to the earlier statement you failed the test. Therefore, you meditate for some time, when I will be incrate 'Kalki avatar' in the Kaliyuga, then you will become my companion, at that time in the three peaked Manorama cave on Manik mountain in North India, where the three great powers reside there you will also stay and become immortal.  Mahabali Hanuman will be your guard and you will be worshiped all over the earth.  In the name of 'Vaishno Devi', your world glory will be famous.

69. Saptrishis cursed to king Nahusha.

By killing Vritrasura, Indra incurred the sin of brahmacharya.  To avoid this sin, Indra was going to do penance.  Now Indrasana cannot be kept empty, so search for such a worthy king who can see the work of heaven for some days in the absence of Indra.


Nahusha was a very majestic king on earth.  In front of Nahusha, all the Gods proposed to take charge of heaven.  Nahusha confesses to Indra by saying that it is difficult to escape the sovereignty of heaven.  On the plea of ​​the deities again, king Nahusha accepted this proposal in the interest of world's welfare .
Indra went to penance by giving King Nahusha the throne of heaven. Nahush started seeing the rule. There was also the throne of Indrani, next to the throne of Indra. Indrani's seat was empty in Indra's absence.  Nahusha, who became temporary Indra, asked the ministers to make Indrani sit on Indra's throne.
On this, the ministers said that this is possible only when you get married to Indrani ("Shachi") and she becomes your ardhangani(wife).  Nahusha sent marriage proposal to Shachi.  Indrani was very worried about this proposal and she went to consult Devguru Brihaspati in this matter.
It did not take long for Guru Brihaspati to understand that the ego-born arrogance has arisen in Nahusha. More important than the eradication of this ego was to strive for Sati Shachi's chastity.
Devguru advised Indrani to speak to temporary Indra Nahusha, if he comes in a sedan attached to the Saptarishis, then I will married him.
Hearing such a message from Shachi, Nahusha soon summoned the shaptrishis to the meeting and ordered that you carry my palanquin and take it to Indrani. King Nahusha was Indra at that time and it would have been treason to not listen to Indra, so the sages accepted it as the king's order.
The sedan was placed on the shoulders of the sages and Nahush walked towards Indrani's palace. Nahusha have to reached near Indrani with a certain time, then only Nahusha would be able to prove his will.  But the sages did not have the habit of doing physical labor, so they were tired and again and again putting the sedan off the shoulder and putting it down.
The sage was enraged by this behavior of the king and he cursed the king.  Due to the curse of the sages, Nahusha fell on the earth as a giant python . During the Mahabharata period, he had a question-and-answer conversation with Yudhishthira and was freed for curse.
When the Pandavas were wandering in exile.  Then Bhima found a python in the forest.  This python caught Bhima.  Bhima, who is considered very powerful, had the same force as 10,000 elephants.  He never lost in front of anyone.  But that python grabbed Bhima tightly and Bhima fainted.
 During this time, Yudhishthira reached there searching for Bhima and asked the dragon if you are a god because no ordinary creature can catch Bhima in the way that you have caught.
That python said to Yudhishthira that I am your ancestor.  My name is Nahush.  I have done many yajanas because of which I became so powerful and I was made the Indra of heaven.  This made me ego and I raised my palanquin from the Saptarishis and I have insulted Agastya Rishi too, due to which he cursed me to become a python . When I realized my mistake, I apologized to him.
At that time, Agastya Rishi said that when a person comes and answers your questions correctly then you will be free from this curse.  Agastya also gave him a boon that when you are a python , then if you find someone stronger than you, then his power will decrease in front of you and you will be able to make it own food.  Even though Bhima is my descendant but due to animal nature I cannot leave it because it is my diet.
On this Yudhishthira said that please leave my brother and I am ready to answer your questions.
Yudhishthira answered all the questions of King Nahusha. Hearing Yudhishthira's religious talk, Nahusha, who became a python , was very satisfied.  After this he left Bhima and he too got freedom from his curse.

Story lessons

 Everyone deserves the opportunity to show their talent one day or the other.  But on those occasions people make mistakes and lose everything.  To boast about anything is the biggest mistake . Therefore, we should avoid wealth and sovereignty ("ego").

70. Rishi Matang cursed to vaanarraj Bali.

Vanararaj Bali and Sugriva are discussed in the Ramayana.  These two brothers were very affectionate, but due to a misunderstanding, both of them became known enemies of each other.  Due to this enmity, Sugriva had to hide on a mountain where Bali could not go.  A very special reason for not going to Bali on this mountain was his own strength and might.  Let's know how Bali's strength became his weakness.
Bali had helped the gods with his force at the time of the churning of the ocean.  He was married to Apsara Tara as a prize.  Bali also defeated Ravana with his force.  Once the demon named Dundubhi started to challenge Bali for war. A war broke out between the two. Bali killed Dundubhi and in anger picked up his body and threw it several kilometers away from the sky.  A few drops of blood from Dundubhi's body, flying in the air, fell into the ashram of Mathang Rishi.  Seeing the drops of blood, the sage became very angry.
The sage Mathang knew from his tapobal(penance's power)who and why he had done this work.  Bali had slaughtered the demon as he fought for war, so there was no harm in killing him, but it was a sin to insult one's dead body by force and desecrate the ascetic's ashram.  Outraged by Bali's behavior, the sage Matang cursed Bali that he would die if he came within a distance of his ashram.
Mathang Rishi's ashram was located near Rishyamuk mountain.  It is believed that the mountain located in southern India, at a distance from the Virupaksha temple of the ancient Vijayanagara empire, was called Rishyamuk in that period and this is the Rishyamuk mountain of Ramayana period. Sugriva had knowledge of this incident and Bali also knew that he was cursed by sage Mathang.
Therefore, he did not go towards Rishimuk mountain even by mistake.  When Bali expelled Sugriva from the kingdom and wanted to kill him, Sugriva along with his associates fled to the cave on Mount Rishimuk.  This cave came to be called Sugriva Cave.  Lord Rama and Sugriva met in this cave. At this place Sugriva lived with his advisors, who always stood by him as his supporters.  Mahabali Hanumanji was also included in these.  Even today a temple is built on this mountain near the cave, where the idol of Sun God and Sugriva is installed.  Later Sri Ram slaughtered Bali, making Sugriva king of Kishkindha.

71. Shridama cursed to Radharani.

It is said that the love of Radha and Krishna is immortal for centuries and for centuries.  There love is so deep that Radha's name always comes before Krishna.  Despite having sixteen thousand queens of Sri Krishna, only Radharani's name is taken with Krishna.  Despite such love, Radha and Krishna could never meet.  Do you know the reason behind this?

Today we tell you that due to which Radha and Shri Krishna could not get married in spite of their unwavering love and bondage.  Actually, the reason behind this was a curse received to Radha.  Yes, according to the legend mentioned in the Brahmavaveart Purana, she could never get her love due to the curse that Radha ji received.
 According to Brahmavaveart Purana, Radha, beloved of Sri Krishna, used to live with him in Golok. Once in the absence of Radha, Shri Krishna was staying with his wife Virja.   When Radha Rani see Shreekrishna engage with another woman,  and Radha Rani did could not control own anger and misbehave with Sri Krishna.  Distracted by Radha's wrath, Virja took the form of a river and drifted from there.
Sri Krishna's friend and servant  Shridama present there at that time did not find it right to Radharani 's words as and he insulted Radha Rani very much in anger.  Sridama could not hear bitter words from Radha's mouth for his Lord Krishna and in anger, he also committed this sin.
Radha became even more angry with Sridama's behavior and she cursed Sridama that he would be born in the demon clan in the next life.  Then in response to this, Sridama cursed Radha to be born on earth as a human. At the same time, Sridama cursed Radha that in human form she will always yearn to receive her life dear Sri Krishna.  Due to this curse in the next birth, Sridama became a demon named Shankhchud.  Due to the  Shridama's curse, Radha Rani had to be born as the daughter of Vrisbhanu and Kirti.
Shortly after taking birth on earth, the curse found in pre-birth started to have an effect on the life of Radha Rani. After finishing Rasleela, Sri Krishna had to go from Vrindavan to battle Kansa and it was from here that Radha and Shrikrishna's separation began. After Sri Krishna's departure, Radha is married to a Vaishya Rayana and she is overcome by Shri Krishna's love forever.  It is said about Radha that she returned to Vaikunth by setting her shadow near her husband Rayan.
So in this way Radha and Shri Krishna could not meet due to the curse of Sridama but their love is still immortal.

72. Bali's wife cursed to Shreeram.

One of the mythological stories related to Lord Rama is associated with the slaughter of Bali by him.  According to this legend, Ram ji was cursed by Apsara for killing Bali and due to this curse Sita Maa went away from Ram ji's life. According to the mythology associated with the legend of Bali and Shri Ram ji, Bali was the son of Indra and he was very strong.  Bali also had a brother named Sugriva.
There was considerable heartly's distance between Sugriva and Bali and it is said that Bali had taken away his brother's kingdom and his wife from him. Due to which Sugriva wanted to take revenge on his brother and wanted to regain his kingdom. Sugriva met him at the time of Ram ji's exile. While meeting Ram ji, Sugriva told him about his brother and asked Ram ji for help to regain his kingdom.  Ram Ji also agreed to help Sugriva.  While telling Ram ji about his brother, Sugriva said that his brother is very strong and half of the power of the person who fights his brother goes to him. Because of which it is difficult to defeat my brother.  After listening to Sugriva, Ram ji decided not to go in front of Bali and at the time when there was a war between Bali and Sugriva, Ram ji killed Bali by shooting arrows from behind the tree.
After hearing the news of Bali's death, his wife felt very sad and Tara became angry when she came to know how her husband was killed.  Not only this, Tara, who was the nymph, cursed Ram ji.  While cursing Ram ji, Tara said that Ram will lose his wife once again.
Also, in the next life, Ram ji will die at the hands of her husband.  Tara's curse became true and Ram Ji lost Sita again after freeing Sita from Ravana's captivity. At the same time, in the next life, Ram ji took the incarnation of Shri Krishna and he was killed by the incarnation of Bali i.e. Bhil Zara and in this way the curse given to Rama by Tara came true.  Let us tell you that Lord Rama was the seventh incarnation of Vishnu and Lord Shri Krishna was the eighth incarnation of Vishnu.

73. Shreeganesha and Tulsi cursed to each other.

According to Hindu beliefs, Lord Ganesha is worshiped before any auspicious work.  This tradition has been going on since long.  Everyone knows how Lord Ganesha was born and how the head of elephant was added in place of his forehead.  But today we are telling you about such a different legend when Lord Ganesha cursed the tulsi to be a tree in anger.


According to the legend, Ganesha was doing penance.  Meanwhile, Tulsi is the daughter of Dharmatmaj, departed on a pilgrimage with a desire to marry.  Tulsi reached the banks of the Ganges while touring.  She saw Ganesha busy in penance and was fascinated by them. Tulsi distracts him from the desire to marry. Seeing the intention of Tulsi, Ganesh Ji said that it is inauspicious to break the tenacity and after declaring himself to be a brahmachari, turned down the proposal of marriage of Tulsi.  It is said that Tulsi was very sad due to Ganesha's refusal and in a fit of anger she cursed Ganesha for two marriages.
On the other hand, Ganesh ji cursed Tulsi that she would be married to a demon.  Also, Lord Ganesha cursed Tulsi to be a tree.  Hearing the curse of being the wife of a demon, Tulsi apologized to Ganesha. Then Shri Ganesh Ji said that you will be married to a demon named Shankhchud.
But then you will be give blessed with life and salvation for the world in Kaliyuga, besides being dear by Lord Vishnu and Shri Krishna.  But offering basil in my worship will not be considered auspicious.  It is said that since then Tulsi is not used in the worship of Lord Ganesha.

74. Shravan kumar's parent cursed to king Dashratha.

 Whenever there is a matter of maternal-paternal devotion, first of all remember the name of Shravan Kumar. The name of Shravan Kumar will remain immortal for motherhood and patriotism in history.  The story of Shravan Kumar dates back to the time when Maharaja Dasharatha use to ruled over Ayodhya.
Shravan's parents were blind.  Shravan loves his parents very much.  Her mother had raised Shravan after suffering a lot.  As Shravan grew older, he would get more and more help in his parents' work.
Waking up in the morning, Shravan would fill the river with water for the parents.  Used to bring wood from the forest.  The stove cooks the food.  Mother refuses him- 'Son Shravan, why do you work so hard for us?  I can cook food.  You will get tired after doing so much work. '  'No mother, I do not get tired of doing the work of you and father.  I enjoy it. You can't see.  While making bread, your hands will burn. '
'Oh God!  Every parent should have a son like our Shravana.  How much does he take care of us?  Parents do not get tired of blessing Shravan.  Shravan's parents worshiped God daily.  Shravan brings flowers for his worship, sets a pedestal for sitting.  Shravan also worshiped with parents.  Shravan grew up serving his parents.  After completing household chores, Shravan goes out to work.  Now his parents do not have to work.
One day Shravan's parents said- 'Son, you have fulfilled all our wishes.  Now one wish remains. '  'Which wish mother?  What does father want?  You give permission  I will fulfill your wish while I am alive. '
' Son our age is over, now we want to go on pilgrimage to the service of God .  May we find peace at the feet of God. '  Shravan got into thinking.  In those days there were no buses or trains like today.  Those people could not even walk much.  While thinking of how to fulfill the wishes of the parents, Shravan figured out a solution.
Shravan took two big baskets.  They were tied with rope at both ends of a strong stick.  In this way a big kanwar was formed.  Then he lifted the parents and placed them in a basket each.  Hearing parents hanged on sticks at shoulder and started going on pilgrimage.
Shravan takes them one by one to many pilgrimage places.  They went, Kashi, Prayag went everywhere.  The parents could not see, so Shravan would tell them all the things about the shrine.  The parents were very happy.  One day the mother said- 'Son Shravan, you have become eyes for the blind.  Hearing about the pilgrimage from your mouth, we feel that we have seen God with our eyes. '
'Yes son, having a son like you, our life is blessed.  You get tired of carrying us, but you never say anything. The father also blessed Shravan.  'Don't say father, parents are never a burden on children.  This is my duty.  You don't worry about me. '
Oneday in afternoon Shravan and his parents use to rested in a forest near Ayodhya.  Mother felt thirsty.  He told Shravan- son, will there be water around here? I am feeling thirsty due to sunshine.  Yes, mother. A nearby river is flowing.  I bring water. '  Shravan went to fetch water with a kamandal.


King Dasaratha of Ayodhya was fond of hunting.  He too came to hunt in the forest.  Shravan dipped the kamandal in water to fill the water.  Hearing the sound of filling water in the vessel, King Dasharatha felt that an animal has come to drink water.  King Dasaratha could hear the unmistakable target by hearing the voice.
He shot arrows based on the voice.  The arrow went straight into Shravan's chest.  'Ah' came out of Shravan's mouth.
 When the king reached to near Shravan, he realized his mistake.  Unknowingly, he committed such a big crime.  He apologizes to Shravan.  'Excuse me, brother.  Unknowingly committed a crime.  What can I do for you?
'Rajan, my parents are thirsty in the forest.  You take water and quench their thirst.  Will not tell them anything about me.  This is my request.  Shravana gave up his life while saying this sentence .
 King Dasaratha, with a sad heart, went to  near Shravan's parents with water.  Shravan's parents knew the sound of his son's feet well.  They were shocked to hear the sound of the king's feet.
'Who is it?  Where is our son Shravan? '  Without answering, the king put forward a water-filled kamandala, wanted to feed them water, but Shravan's mother shouted - 'Why don't you speak, tell me where is our son?'  'Mother, inadvertently, my arrow hit the chest of Shravan.  He has sent me to give you water.  Please forgive me. '  The king was strangled.
'Oh!Shravan, alas! my son', the mother shouted.  Taking the name of the son with crying, both of them gave up their lives. They did not even touch the water.  Thirsty, they took off from this world.
It is said that King Dasaratha snatched his son from the old parents.  That is why King Dasharatha also had to endure a son's separation Ramchandraji went to exile for fourteen years.  King Dasaratha could not bear this disconnection.  That is why he gave up his life.  Never been a maternal & paternal devotee like Shravan Kumar.  The sons who serve the parents with true heart are called as Shravan Kumar.

75. Durvasha rishi cursed to Shakuntala.

Once King Dushyant of Hastinapur went to play hunting in the forest, which was the ashram of Kanva rishi in the forest to hunt.  The king reached his ashram to meet the sage, and after reaching there he called the sage, then a beautiful girl came out of the ashram and said, "Rajan Maharishi has gone on pilgrimage but you are welcome in our ashram."  Seeing the girl, Maharaja Dushyant asked, "Devi!  Who are you?"  The girl said, "My name is Shakuntala and I am the daughter of Kanva Rishi."  Hearing that girl, Dushyant Maharaj was surprised and said, "Maharishi is a born Brahmachari, then how are you his daughter?"
In response to his question, Shakuntala said, "Actually my parents are Menaka and Vishwamitra.  My mother left me in the forest when I was born, where a bird named Shakunta protected me.  That is why my name was Shakuntala. After that the eye of Kanva rishi fell upon me and he brought me to his ashram.  He was the one who fed me.  One who gives  birth, one who gives nourishment and one who gives food - all three are called fathers.  Thus Kanva rishi became my father. "
Hearing Shakuntala's words, Maharaj Dushyant said, "Shakuntale!  You are a Kshatriya girl.  Seeing your beauty, I have given my heart to you.  If you have no objection, then I want to marry you. "  Shakuntala was also fascinated with Maharaja Dushyant, so he gave his approval.
Both got married to each other .  Maharaja Dushyant spent some time in the forest, while staying with Shakuntala.  Then one day he said to Shakuntala, "Dear!  Now I have to go Hastinapur to see my kingdom. When maharishi Kanva returns from his pilgrimage, I will take you away from here and take you to my palace. "  Saying so, the king gave Shakuntala his gold ring as a token of his love and went to Hastinapur.
One day Durvasa Rishi came to his ashram. Shakuntala did not even know of his arrival due to being absorbed in memory of Maharaja Dushyant and did not welcome Durvasa rishi properly.
Durvasa Rishi considered it own insult and in anger said, " O girl!  I curse you that someone you have humiliated me by forgetting will forget you. "
Hearing the curse of Durvasa Rishi, Shakuntala's attention was broken and she fell at his feet and started praying for forgiveness.  Surprised by Shakuntala's pardon prayer, Durvasa Rishi said, "Well, if you have any of his love signs, then he will remember you by seeing that sign."
Shakuntala became pregnant due to Maharaj Dushyant's cohabitation.  After some time Kanva rishi returned from pilgrimage, then Shakuntala told him about her marriage with Maharaj Dushyant. Maharishi Kanva said, "Daughter!"  It is not appropriate for a married girl to stay in the father's house.  Now your husband's house is your home. " After saying this, Maharishi sent Shakuntala with his disciples to Hastinapur. While worshiping in a lake on the way, the ring of Shakuntala given by King Dushyant, which was a love sign, fell in the lake itself.  A fish swallowed that ring. Upon reaching King Dushyant, the disciples of Kanva rishi stood Shakuntala in front of him and said, "Maharaj!  Shakuntala is your wife, you accept it. "  Maharaja had forgotten Shakuntala due to the curse of Durvasa rishi. Therefore, he did not accept Shakuntala and started misbehave with her.  As soon as Shakuntala was insulted, lightning flashed in the sky and her mother Menka took her away in front of everyone.
The fish, which swallowed Shakuntala's ring, got caught in a fisherman's net one day.  When the fisherman cut him, a ring came out of his stomach.  The fisherman sent the ring to Maharaja Dushyant as an offering.  On seeing the ring, Maharaj remembered Shakuntala and repented of his act.  Maharaj searched Shakuntala very much but did not find her.
After a few days, after receiving the invitation of Devraj Indra, Maharaj Dushyant went to Indra's city Amravati to help him in the Devasur struggle.  After conquering the war, when he was returning to Hastinapur by sky route, he saw the ashram of rishi Kashyapa on the way. He stayed there for their visions.  In the ashram, a handsome boy was playing with a fierce lion.  Maneka had left Shakuntala in the sage Kashyapa's ashram and that child was the son of Shakuntala.  On seeing that child, a feeling of love rose in the heart of Maharaj. When he proceeded to lift his in the lap, Shakuntala's friend shouted, "O gentle man!  You should not touch this child, otherwise a black thread tied in his arm will bite you. "  Dushyant could not stop himself even after hearing this and lifted the child in his lap. Now Shakuntala's friend saw with surprise that the black thread tied in the child's arm has fallen on the earth.  Sakhi knew that whenever his father would take the child in his lap, that black thread would fall to the earth.  Friend was happy and narrated the entire story to Shakuntala. Shakuntala came to  near Dushyant.  Maharaj recognized Shakuntala.  He prayed forgiveness to Shakuntala for his act and took the permission of Rishi Kashyapa and brought her along with his son to Hastinapur.


The name of Maharaja Dushyant and Shakuntala's son was Bharata.  Later Bharata became the great emperor and our country was named Bharatvarsha after him.

This entire series highlights the importance of men with high intelligence and spiritual merit by Sanatan Dharma, and it is reported that whatever they predict becomes reality even if it is connected to the Supreme God.
 The concept of 'curse' has been a precursor to important events in the history of Sanatan Dharma.  It also explains the supreme importance given to 'Karma' in Sanatan Dharma, and even the Almighty God cannot escape its effects.  The sage who curses on a simple thing, he himself cannot be saved by impulsive behavior.  He then realizes his mistakes and after that he suggests some remedies or austerities to prevent them.
The effect and duration of a curse depended on the level of spiritual ability of the person giving the curse, and it was the only qualification that helped curse take real shape in that person's life.  The power of curse often came only upon attaining spiritual merit, which was in fact the basis of its power.

SHREE RAMNAVAMI



SHREE RAMNAVAMI

At the spiritual level, human existence is not found even in the infinite depths of subtlety.  Tied to the shackles of kama, anger, greed, attachment and arrogance, human nature recognizes its existence only as "Ravana". To put it plainly, all of us naturally live our life at the lowest level on the spiritual scale, far away from our favored element, created in the form of "Ravana". The human desire to be consistent in the form of "Ravana" is natural, it is the nature of human-minded "Ravana" to recognize its existence in a gross form.  In my view it is moksha to recognize the "Rama-swaroop" hidden within oneself while conquering one's own "ego" in a jyetendriya form and destroying its "Ravana-swaroop". Rama-Janmotsav Satchidanand Paramananda Divine Seeing God in human form shows the advancement of our own spiritual level.  At the ideological level, it would be better to understand it as an element only.  Creating "Rama-tattva" within us is to celebrate "Rama-Janmotsav" every moment. The renunciation of "Ravana-swaroop" and merging into "Rama-tattva" should be the goal of human life. This is moksha (salvation).

Wish you all a very happy Ram Navami in advance .  Rama dwells in the soul of India.  So much has been written on them that what can we write more than that?

Let's try to say something briefly.  According to Valmiki Ramayana, Ramcharitmanas and Puranas, in the this day, Lord Sri Ram was born in Ayodhya as the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu in Ikshvaku clan from the womb of Queen Kausalya as the eldest son of King Dasharatha. According to Agastya Samhita, on the Navami day of the Shukla Paksha of Chaitra month, when Sun and Panchagraha were sitting on Aries sign with their auspicious sight in Punarvasu Nakshatra, karka Lagna, then in that very ascendant lagna, Shri Ram was born. On this day itself, Goswami Tulsidas inaugurated the creation of Ramacharimanas.  Chaitra Navratri also ends with Rama Navami.  On this day, both men and women observe fast .
There is a story related to this fast.  At the time of exile, Shriram reached the house of a poor and old old woman, who was a great devotee, along with Sita and Lakshmana on his birthday.  Due to feeding them, she could not get food himself, due to which she had to keep fast that day.
After the meal Rama asked him to test her, "Mata! I want pearl for my goose. Please arrange a bag of pearls." From where can she bring pearls that have not been having two time meals? But the guest did not like to return empty-handed in this way.  So she went to the king there and asked for a bag of pearls.  The king laughed and asked how she would return the pearl?  The old lady could not give any answer.  The king gave him a bag of pearls and said that there was no need to return.
She came back and gave all those pearls to Shri Ram.  Ram returns with him to Sita and Lakshman.
 The next day the old lady saw that there was a tree of pearls in her hut. She was very happy to see this. She thanked God and took two bags of pearl and reached the king.  The king asked in surprise, from where did you get so much wealth?  At that the old lady told the whole story.  The king got greed after hearing this secret.  He said give me that tree. What would the old lady do of that tree?  She asked the king to get him from my ashram.  The king took that tree and got it installed in his palace.  But from that moment, thorns started in that tree.  Some thorns also entered his wife's hands which caused him great distress. When the king saw this, he apologized to the old lady and got the tree back in her hut.  On reaching there, pearls started to be put in that tree and that old lady started donating pearls to the beggars daily.  Thus, whoever devoutly observes Rama Navami fast, Lord Shri Ram makes him full of wealth.
Lord Shri Rama is considered a symbol of dignity.  He is known as Purushottam, the best man.  They do not distinguish between men and women.  There are many examples where he appears to be devoted and respectful to his wife Sita.  They also do not consider the high and low prevailing in the society.  The example of Shabri eating half-eaten plum and boarding the boat of Kewat is best to understand this.

Though Ram Navami is celebrated as the birth anniversary of Lord Rama, but in South India, this day is considered to be the day of marriage of Lord Rama and Sita and it is called Sitaram Kalyanam.  In South India, Prasadam is offered to Lord Rama on this day.  This prasad is called Naivedyam, which is a type of laddu.


Shri Ram's birthday is celebrated all over the country with great pomp and show.  It is particularly celebrated in Ayodhya (UP), Sita Samiti Sthal (UP), Sitamarhi (Bihar), Bhadrachalam (Telangana), Vontimitta (Andhra), Rameswaram (Tamil Nadu) and Jankipurdham (Nepal).
Rath Yatras are also carried out at many places, which include peeps of Goddess Sita, Lakshman and Hanuman along with Shriram.  Shri Ram lived his whole life with simplicity and high thoughts.  There is no description of any kind of demerit in them.  For this reason, he is also called Maryada Purushottam.  He was also a wonderful ruler.  Even today, the state of Rama is described in our country.  In Kali Yuga, the name of Shri Ram has special significance.  It is said that the simplest means to attain heaven and salvation in Kali Yuga is Rama-naam.

Many congratulations to all of you on Ramnavami.  I know that about 80 percent of you will be such people who have neither read the Valmiki Ramayana nor the Ramcharit Manas.  Especially today's generation knows Ramayana as much as Ramanand Sagar has shown them through TV.  Naman to Ramanand Sagar ji for this, but think, what did you do….


।।JAI SHREERAM।।
