LORD Varaha SATISFIES PRITHVI'S CURIOSITY


LORD Varaha SATISFIES PRITHVI'S CURIOSITY 

A sage named Sutaji narrated the tale of Lord Varaha to the sages, which he had heard from Sage VedaVyasa---
Once, while Narada was wandering about, he reached Meru mountain where he saw the abode of Lord Brahma. He also saw a giant sized entity, just next to Brahma's abode. The person possessed four arms and his face resembled a boar. The person held a conch and a chakra in his two hands--The remaining two hands were in the postures of giving blessings. Narada was very surprised to see that divine person being surrounded by Sages like Vashishtha, Atri, Markandeya and Bhrigu. After paying his eulogy to him, he stood in a corner. In the meantime, Prithvi (earth) arrived there with her two companions--Ila and Pingla. She was curious to know about the identities of various mountains, which Lord Varahaa had established on her. Lord Varahaa told Prithvi about the prominent mountains---Mountains like Sumeru, Himavana, Mandarachala, Vindhyachala, Pariyatraka, Mahendra, Malaya, Sinhachala and Gandhamadana are situated to the north of Himalaya.

The mountain ranges situated to the south of Himalaya are Arunachala, Hasti, Gridhachala and Ghatikachala. Sages believe that in Satyayuga Lord Vishnu had his abode at Anjana Mountain, while in tretayuga, dwaparyuga and Kaliyuga he has his abode at Narayangiri, Sinhachala and Shrivenketachala (This is nothing the present Tirupati) respectively. Lord Varahaa and Prithvi flew away towards Venkatachalgiri mounted on Garuda.

LORD Varaha MANTRA

On their way, Prithvi requested Lord Varaha to reveal the sacred mantra, chanting of which makes him pleased.

Lord Varaha said--'The secret mantra that pleases me to no limits is ---OM NAMO SHRIVarahaAYa DHARANYU UDDHARNAYa SWAHA. This mantra is capable of liberating a man and also brings all sort of worldly accomplishments to him. In the first Krita yuga, a Manu named Dharma had realized me by continuously chanting this mantra. Even Indra regained the control of heaven by chanting it. Ananta--the lord of all serpents, chanted Varaha mantra and as a result became capable of holding the earth on it's hood.'

OM NAMO NARAYANAYA

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,…

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…
