BADARINATH
The Himalayan abode of Sri Maha Vishnu

NARA & NARAYANA

Scriptural evidences found in abundance glorify every inch of this kshetra with interesting accounts and elevating experiences. Once, as the legend goes, Nara and Narayana, the fourth incarnation of Maha Vishnu did severe penance here for securing spiritual peace. Then the power - mad imbecile Indra, deeming the penance aimed at the Devendrapadavi, sent a battalion of ravishing beauties to foil it. Interrupted, Narayana flew into ungovernable anger and was about to curse Indra for his thoughtless action. Nara intervening, pacified him for the good of heaven. Pitying the repentant Indra, Narayana created Urvasi - an engrossing piece of beauty and presented him. But that unearthly damsel along with 'the heavenly companions implored Narayan to accept them as His spouses. Narayana, thereupon, promised them to fulfil their desire in His next incarnation as Krishna. The self-same Nara and Narayana were born in Dwaparayuga as Arjuna and Krishna and the latter fulfilled the desire of the damsels.
