DRAKSHARAMAM

It happened that the Vindhya Mountain was growing up higher and higher, perhaps with the intention of out beating the Everest, the highest peak. Its abnormal growth in height was unwanted and anomalous that created hindrance to the movement of heavenly bodies - the Sun and the Moon. When their regular movement was prevented, certain parts were thrown into eternal darkness, and others in perpetual glare and intense heat. The affected sages went to Agasthya and prayed for solution. Though unwilling to leave Kasi, the Mokshapuri even for a short period, he moved out it for manavabhyudaya with regrets and came to the Vindyas, and said then, "I am on tour to the down South, give me way now and do not raise your head till I return from it". Listening Vindhya at once gave way, for he knew what Agasthya was, and how he drank seas to save Devaloka from the formidable demons hiding in the sea. Agasthya then settled down at Draksharama for some years and moved to further South later, but never went back. So the Vindhyas never raised its head, nor went on with further growth obstructing the regular passage of the Sun and Moon. The sages heaved a sigh of relief, and the world saw equal distribution of Sun's brilliance and Moon's coolness.
