|According to his
plan, one day, Narada went with the Trimurtis to Jnanaranya. At that time, Anasuya was
standing at the door of her cottage after finishing her Morning Prayer. She was very happy
to entertain them. As if by intuition, she came to know her guests were none other than
Narada and the Trimurtis.
So, she brought
offerings to welcome the guests in a befitting manner. Her affectionate and generous
reception astonished Narada and his companions. Then Anasuya wished to know what she could
do for them. The three Rishis (Trimurtis) made impossible requests to her thinking that
she would not be able to comply with them; but, to their amazement, Anasuya brought the
receptacle containing the Padatirtha of her husband and a drop of the Padatirtha and the
devout utterance of her husbands name accomplished all that they desired. Wondering
at her powers, they left for their abodes. Narada did this to demonstrate to the Trimurtis
the power of Anasuyas chastity.
