 MOTHER BHAVANI OF TULJAPUR

ANTIQUITY

The principal works delineating the glorious history of this kshetra embody several episodes; they account for the advent of Mother to this place and her playing several sports for emancipating people and the country. Only two can be singled out now, and they serve the purpose well.

THE MATANGA EPISODE

The story goes that there was an asura here by name Matanga reigning supreme and causing untold suffering to the people, particularly to the sages and innocent. He was atrocious and unscruplous-slaughtered the peace-loving, harmless subjects; abducted several fair women for quenching his kamadaha; looted the rich to feed his coffers; burnt asramas, destroyed temples, butchered cows and desecrated yagnasalas to gratifying his atheistic aggressive nature. Were the suras spared? No. His asura pravirthi asserting itself caused incalculable harm to all in several ways. When things went beyond the stage of toleration, the devas and humans met Brahma and poured out their pathetic fate with streaming eyes.
