DRAKSHARAMAM - DRAKSHARAMAM

Vedavyasas Episode

Once Vedavyasa had a problem. Though not of serious type, it caused annoyance a bit more, and he lost mental poise. In his daily morning round for biksha on that unfortunate day, he could not get a fistful from any house. Even his soliciting humbly from the donors too he met with failure. This would certainly hinder his divine activities of teaching and writing. When frustration reached the climax, he was on the verge of cursing the citizens. Just then an old woman appeared before and fed him sumptuously. His disciples too enjoyed an unusual treat. Before leaving, when he looked up to thank her, but he found her to be Mata Annapurneswari. Flashing affectionate
smiles, the mother said, "Dear Vyas, you failed miserably in the test thrust upon you by my Lord Siva. He is much incensed at the loss of , your mental equilibrium. He deemed you unfit to live in this Mokshapuri, where the Lord is to be won over by austerities. This is not the place for easeful living, yogis who look upon adversity and prosperity with equanimity alone stay here and attain emancipation.
