SUCHINDRAM

In the meantime, as a result of the ardent devotion of the Maharshi, Brahma appeared before him. The Rishi begged to know why the rains had failed; but Brahma, the Creator of the Universe, pretended ignorance and disappeared. Then, the Rishi prayed to Lord Vishnu who too could not give a proper answer. Highly disappointed, Atri prayed to the Trmurthy. They suggested that it might be the whim of Devadatta, or the curse of Gautama, and advised him to go to the Himalayas, and pray to, Devendra for redress.

Atri Maharshi was in a fix. How could he go to the Himalayas leaving Anasuya alone? The solution came from Anasuya herself as she could read the mind of her husband. She suggested: "I should not stand in your way of bringing rains to this parched land. If you would but grant me your Padatirtha (i.e. water with which your feet have been washed) and bless me, I should be able to live alone and safe during your absence". Atri Muni agreed to this. Anasuya collected the Padatirtha and kept it in a conch-shell. After blessing his wife, Atri started for the Himalayas with an untroubled mind.
