MANDI

Introduction

Mandavya Rishi a great saint with considerable supernatural powers and deep knowledge of the scriptures -lived in a hermitage, and used to meditate on a rock named as Kolsra, situated; on the left bank of the Beas river at Mandi. In the olden days, it used to be on the right bank but the course of the river had changed.

The sage was in deep meditation when the King's Policemen followed a band of thieves and came to Mandavya Rishi's hermitage. The saint was asked if he knew where the robbers had gone but as he was in meditation he did not care to reply. The robbers had actually taken shelter in the hermitage after concealing the booty.
