TRYAMBAKESHVAR - TRYAMBAK

Somehow Ganesh managed to dispel his fears and he accepted to play the role Ganesh might assign to him. What could he do’? Well, he was to so arrange matters that there would be no rainfall any where on the earth except in the vicinity of the ashram of Gautama, that is, in and near the Tryambakeshvar area. How long? As long as Ganesh asked him to. Varuna kept his promise and for three years in succession the earth received no rains, excepting, of course, Gautama’s ashram.

The famine conditions created by the lack of any rains drove all the sages and mendicants to desert their places and go in search for water and food and the only place where these things could be procured was Gautama’s ashram. So gradually all the sages flocked to this place and Gautama found himself engrossed in the task of feeding these hungry souls. lie could hardly find time for his daily rituals even. All his time was consumed by the task of sowing the rice seed,, and harvesting the ready crops. He was kept busy through Varuna’s favour because the land had gone so fertile that Whatever he sowed in the morning he had to reap in the evening’ The number of his guests’ was already quite large. Amongst these learned people one shone forth by his brilliance and eloquence. A flowing white beard and confident manner stood him in good stead. Soon he was the leader of them all.

Whatever Ganesh-rishi, for that was his name, told was accepted by all without murmur and everything was peacefully and harmoniously run. Gautama of course was all along tending the fields. One day while he was thus sitting tinder a tree guarding his crops, a big but thoroughly emaciated cow entered the field and started devouring the paddy.
