TALAKAVERI & ITS GLORY

THE BIRTH OF CAUVERY

According to one version, she was the daughter of Rajarshi Kavera, a sage of great spiritual eminence. While doing penance, Lord Brahma appeared and blessed him with a daughter. She was called Cauvery, and known for her fecundity and volubility. She had an ideal and it was two-fold in end. She decided to get Sayujyamukti for her father by doing penance, propitiating Lord Maheswar, and also become a river that cleanses the sins of all those who bathe in it. When he penance was in progress, Brahma advised Agasthya to marry Kaveraputri, as she was the most suitable for him in every aspect. Accordingly, Agasthya met her and communicated his desire to marry as bid by Brahma. She confessed the real intention of the two-fold purpose of her penance. Yet Agasthya persuaded her with a view to honouring the divine injunction. She agreed, and then turned herself into Lopamudra; though it was a new name, it was her amsa only. Agasthya married her and confined it into his Kamandal.
