PUSHKAR - RAJ
The Lone Earthly Abode of Brahma

Now begins the fluctuations of fortune in his life. He started penance for Brahmarishi padavi. Devendra fearing harm to his position, sent Menaka, the ravishing piece of beauty among the celestial dancers for disturbing his tapas. Her external dazzle and internal lust scored victory over the airy tapas; he lost poise, and drank in the transient glamour for a decade, which ended with the birth of Sakuntala. Realising the commission, he started again. This time Rambha, the top beauty noted for irresistible glamour tried at the instance of Devendra, but could not make any dent. So she went with curses to add to her discomfiture. When his tenacity, sat atop the Everest, Brahma descending, made him Brahmarshi, but no affect. Adamant Viswamitra wanted Vasistha, the most competent authority to declare and acknowledge him as such. Vasistha, when pressurized by gods, rescinding his previous animosity, pronounced as aspired, and they lived amicably thereafter. A great achievement indeed!
