      LORD MAYURESWAR OF MORGAON

The story begins with one by Chakrapani, the ruler of this region with Gandaki as his capital. He was a virtuous ruler, yet had a big problem that gnawed at the vitals of his life. He had no issues. He did penance with his wife Ugra, propitiating Surya Bhagavan. Lord Surya blessed him with the desired. When Ugra felt the weight of the embryo too powerful to bear in her womb, she let it fall in the sea. The sea pitying her, assumed the form of a brahmin and looked after it till it changed itself into a boy. Later he presented the boy to Chakrapani - the legal owner narrating the story. In memory of the great deed, the boy was named Sindhu. On coming of age, Sindhu did penance standing on one foot for over two thousand years propitiating Lord Surya. Pleased with austure tapas, he blessed Sindhu with all the boons including the Amaradhipatya except that of keeping of Amrit with him always - his chief ambition, adding that the Amrit would be with him as long as the container kept with him always and he would be dead, if he were to be deprived of it. It delighted everybody. The parents enthroned Sindhu as the king and left for Vanaprasthasram.

It was the opportune time for him to conquer the worlds and establish his absolute power all over including heaven. Assisted by like minds and soldiers as hard as stones, he achieved his object of his paramountcy even over the Amaravathi, the capital of Devendra. All the gods including Brahma and Vishnu were imprisoned and then he unleashed his reign of terror. As ruthless dictatorship enjoyed its heyday, there was general suffering to all, and to the righteous it was unbearable.
