PUSHKAR - RAJ
The Lone Earthly Abode of Brahma

VISWAMITRA'S EPISODE

Balakanda of Ramayana' brings out vividly sage Viswamitra's life with all the ups and downs occurred on this divyabhumi. His career starts here with selection of this place exuding sublimity for doing penance, which he ultimately made his permanent settlement. While he was carrying on his meditation and spiritual activities, king Trisanku driven out of heaven for entering in physical form approached him for fulfillment of his long-cherished ambition of going to heaven in his mortal frame and living with the same among the gods. Utilizing his tapas-sakti, he created a new heaven for Trisanku; alas! it exposed the vulnerability of heaven's power. A clear case of his spectacular victory! Heaven then made a compromise with him by assuring Trisanku a fit place in heaven. On another occasion, Sunahpsepa an unfortunate muni balaka unwilling to be sacrificed at a yaga by Ambarisha, whose sacrificial cow was stolen by Indra sought Viswamitra's compassionate assistance to save his life. Pitying him, he asked every one of his sons to substitute for Sunahpsepa. On refusal, he cursed them -and by giving two special gathas to Indra,' he saved the saranagatha. This is, yet another colourful feather in his cap.
