One who prays to Bhagavan Vishnu, doesn't need to go to Yamaloka

Maitreya, once asked Paraashara that "How to avoid going to Yamaloka after death". For this Paraashara said to Maitreya, that once Nakula (one of the Pancha Paandava) had asked his grandfather Bhisma the same question. On this Bhisma had said that he had a brahmana friend called Kalinga and he had learnt the way to avoid going to yamaloka by praying Bhagavan Vishnu from a Jatismara rushi. 

Jatismara rushi (a type of rushi who can remember of his earlier lives' happenings) had explained to Kalinga of the conversation that took place between YamaDeva and his sahapaati (colleague) ChitraGupta. YamaDeva informed to his sahapaati that, "no Yamadoota should touch the bhaktha of Bhagavan Vishnu. I am just a follower of what Bhagavan Srimann Narayana says. Even Devas like IndraDeva and all the demi-Gods are Bhakthas and followers of Sri Hari. BrahmaDeva and RudraDeva will always be chanting the naama of Bhagavan Narayana. BrahmaDeva and RudraDeva will always be praying and they both do the naama-smaranam of Bhagavan Narayana". YamaDeva continued, "I need to follow the instructions given by Bhagavan Vishnu, without which I cannot even move a darbam (grass)", "that is the shakthi of Bhagavan Narayana". YamaDeva again continued, "who ever chants 'OM NAMO NARAYANAYA' will be equal to swayam Bhagavan Narayana, because atma and paramaatma are one and the same. So no Yamadoota should touch any bhaktha of Bhagavan Vishnu", said YamaDeva.

On this ChitraGupta asked to YamaDeva, "how can we distinguish between a bhaktha of Bhagavan Vishnu and others". For this YamaDeva replied, "one who always chants the name of Bhagavan Vishnu, one who always make the naama smaranam of Bhagavan Srimann Narayana, one who follows the path of Dharma, one who's heart is pure, one who makes Go (cow) daanam, one who makes pooja of Sri Hari, one who things his both friend and enemy as one & the same, one who is non-violent, one who is not depressed, one who controls his anxiety & doesn't harm anybody by intention. These are some of the followers of Bhagavan Srimann Narayana. Swayam Srimann Narayana lies in the hearts of his nija Bhaktha. So don't dare to touch a real Bhaktha, as the Bhagavan Vishnu's Sudarshana Chakra on the order's of his master can destroy anything and anyone. So be aware of all these things and don't go near a nija Bhaktha".

The above is taken from Vishnu Purana.

PS: Even today the only way to get the mukthi and moksham is to do the Bhagavan Srimann Narayana's naama smaranam, that only "OM NAMO NARAYANAYA" is the only way and infact the best way to avoid Yamaloka and to get directly into Swarga and if a person is really lovable and is indeed a real Bhaktha of Bhagavan Vishnu, then that person even may get the staanam (place) in Vaikuntham, along with his Bhagavan Srimann Narayana.

Maharshi Kashyapa, his wives and there children

Maharshi Kashyapa, his wives and there children

Kashyapa married thirteen of Daksha’s daughters. Their names were Aditi, Diti, Danu, Arishta, Surasa, Khasa, Surabhi, Vinata, Tamra, Krodhavasha, Ida, Kadru and Muni.

Aditi’s sons were the twelve gods known as the adityas. Their names were Vishnu, Shakra, Aryama, Dhata, Vidhata, Tvashta, Pusha, Vivasvana, Savita, Mitravaruna, Amsha and Bhaga.

Diti’s sons were the daityas (demons). They were named Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakshipu, and amongst their descendants were several other powerful daityas like Vali and Vanasura. Diti also had a daughter named Simhika who was married to a danava (demon) named Viprachitti. Their offsprings were terrible demons like Vatapi, Namuchi, Ilvala, Maricha and the nivatakavachas.

The hundred sons of Danu came to be known as danavas. The danavas were thus cousins to the daityas and also to the adityas. In the danava line were born demons like the poulamas and kalakeyas.

Arishta’s sons were the gandharvas (singers of h…

Fighting between Krishna and Shiva: Story of Vanasura (Banasura), Usha and Anirudhha

Krishna had more than one lakh and eighty thousand sons. But the best of them was Pradyumna and Pradyumna’s son was Aniruddha. 
Vali’s son was Vanasura and Vanasura’s daughter was Usha. Usha once met Parvati and Shiva. She asked Parvati who her husband would be. Parvati replied that in the month of Vaishakha a person would appear in Usha’s dreams. And this person would be her husband.

As promised by Parvati, Usha did see a person in her dreams. But she did not know how this person was. She told her friend Chitraleka about this. Chitralekha thought that the only way to find out was to show Usha the protraits of various important personages amongst the devas, gandharvas and asuras. But the required person could not be identified from these portraits. Usha was then shown the portraits of humans and immediately she identified Aniruddha."

Many years ago, Vanasura had prayed to Mahadeva," he had said,…

Bhakthi Story: Krishna killed Ekalavya, but why?

Krishna killed Ekalavya, but why?

We all know that Ekalavya had made the clay statue of the Guru Dronacharya and he was practicing the Dhanur Vidya and was also had become master in some of the Dhanur Vidyas. 
After some time, Dronacharya comes to know about the Ekalavya practicing Dhanur Vidya by keeping a statue of himself. Once Dronacharya meets Ekalavya and asks him "why are you practicing Dhanur Vidya by keeping my statue in front" and for this Ekalavya replies that "Guru Deva I have accepted you as my Guru and I have been practicing Dhanur Vidya since than". 
Than Dronacharya after few days again meet Ekalavya and asks him right hand's Thumb finger as the Guru dakshina. Ekalavya without any hesitation cuts off his finger to give his Thumb as the Guru dakshina to his Guru Dronacharya. 
We should think why Guru Dronacharya did like this?. Was Guru Dronacharya was jealous of Ekalavya that one day Ekalavya will become a much better Dhanur Vidyashali than the Nara…
