SRI MAHAVISHNU'S DESCENT

" Now hear me intently!"

" Manu once performed a great yagna on a grand scale attended by celestials too. During the course of it, there arose a dispute regarding the supremacy of gods among the Trimurthis. Each learned scholar and spiritual luminary advanced his argument with evidence justifying his selection. The plethora of proofs in respect of each claim was so confusing that the elders thought it fit send one sage for spot observation and report the findings for conclusion by the committee formed for this. The choice fell on Sage Brighu, son of Brahma. Brighu first went to Kailas. And on securing admission into the innermost chamber by Nandi with great difficulty, he reached Siva Sannidhi, and found the Adidampatis engaged in amorous sports; finding them indifferent to his presence, he grew angry and cursed them. When he went to Satyaloka, Brahma never even got up to receive him; for, Brighu was after all his manasaputra. Unable to stomaching the insult, he cursed him, and straight way directed his steps to Vaikunta. Still worse! He found here Lord Vishnu in deep sleep during the day; a sight unbearable!! His anger reached the climax. Flying into irrepressible indignation, he gave a kick on the Lord's chest. Vishnu anon got up and tactfully asked him whether he received any injury to the foot; for, it was a forceful kick against his rock like chest. And confessed that his negligence of protecting the world received just punishment, ending that Brighu must be thanked for reminding his duty. Brighu's purpose ended; and his search bore fruit.

But it left disastrous effects in the domestic scene of Lord Vishnu, as Lakshmi is ever abiding in the chest of Lord Vishnu, she received the force of kick. It was an insult to the Goddess of her status and glory. It was inexcusable and unpalatable. Unable to make compromise with it, however much she tried, she left Vaikunta, hurling harsh words on the Lord.
