 MOTHER BHAVANI OF TULJAPUR

Equipping him with everything necessary for his worldly life and convincing him with her long cherished ambition, she entered the final asram - Vanaprasthasram. Snapping all connections with kith and kin, she went to Meruparvatha for meditation. She did penance for long, and just at a time when her longing for moksha was about to be consummated, a king by name Kukoor appeared on the scence and upset the normal tenor. This earth and earthy Kukoor was lusty and licentious - a voluptuous beast, besides hunting mild beasts in the forest. Chancing to see her alone in the asram, while on his hunting expedition, he was drawn to her. Her captivating beauty roused in him amorous instincts and so desired to own her for appeasing his sensuality. He went near and proposed to marry her. As she was deep in meditation, nothing entered her mind, nor could she relish such henious act. So Kukoor resorted to physical force. When he was about to lift her for abduction, Anubhuti let out heartrending cry in such a high pitch that it record Mother Bhavani. Then descended there anon Tvarita, another name for the Mother to protect the chaste Anubhuti from the clutches of impetuous immoral Kukoor. The asura was taken aghast as he never expected such a scene in a dense forest, in a lone hermitage at it.
