MAHAD - VARADA VINAYAKA MANDIR

And at this time, the king of Kundinipura died without heir.  Daksha became the king through the blessings of Mudgala Maharshi. In the mean time, King Bhima and his wife with the grace of Vishwamitra, was blessed with a son called Rukmangada after meditating on Vinayaka and chanting Eakakshara mantra. Unfortunately Rukmangada was affected by Swetakusti vyadi due to a curse of muni patni Mukunda, when he desired unethical union with her. His pitable plight came to an end with Narada Maharshi's advice of bathing in Chintamani lake and worshipping Vinayaka. He did and was rid of his dreadful disease. The lustful munipatni Mukunda gave birth to a boy born through Indra. He was named Gritasamada. He was a genius and became a great scholar. He was humiliated by Atri during an intellectual discussion in the court of Magadharaja, for his mother's sin of liaison with Indra. He cursed his mother on learning the truth to become a throny plant, but was retaliated with a curse by her to become the father of Rakshasa. To expiate the curse, he did penance in the forest called Pushpa propitiating Vinayaka for 6000 years. When the Lord gave darsan, he prayed for the Lord's presence there for ever to relieving the sokarthis. Pleased with it, the Lord blessed him to become the founder of Gaanapathya Sampradaya, and added that his son would become a great scholar, and the forest be called 13hadrak in Ka6yuga attracting steady streams of pilgrims for liberation on worshipping the Lord.
