SUCHINDRAM

Anasuya had never experienced the bliss of motherhood. After fondling the three babies, she longed to have cradles for them. With the power of her lord’s Padatirtha she obtained cradles, put the holy babies into them, and sang lullabies to charm them to sleep. The tunes were so enchanting that the gifted Narada laid aside his inseparable Veena, to enjoy the music. Then he repaired to the Himalayas to convey this news to Atri Maharshi.

Narada told Atri: "Your wife, the chaste Anasuya, has given birth to three babies in your absence! This struck me as being so
strange that I thought I should inform you." With these words, Narada abruptly left. Atri Maharshi was beside himself with rage and, staying the yajna for a while, repaired to his cottage in Jnanaranya. Reaching his hermitage, he summoned his wife Anasuya into his presence and questioned her about the babies in the Asram. Anasuya trembled at his wrath. She stood before her lord and with bended knees and bated breath, narrated to him in detail how three holy guests came and wanted her to stand nude to serve food and how she turned them into babies by the power of his Padatirtha and satisfied them. Atri Maharshi repented for his hasty anger, felt small and ashamed before Anasuya and was proud of possessing such a wife.
