The holy Pitru Kshetra

DHARMASILA'S HISTORY

What then is the story of Dharmasila placed on the head of Gaya during that sacrifice and how did it acquire such mighty weight and the capacity to bear all gods. It needs elaboration now. Its story starts with Dharmavartha, the pious daughter of Dharma, a holy sage. Desiring to be coupled with the most fittest spouse of her liking, she did penance. It so chanced, Marichi, the son of Brahma happened to pass that way and asked the reason of her tapas. On revelation, he offered himself, if she had no objection. She noticed parents sealed it; and they were wedded on an auspicious occasion. The match being ideal and all was done on perfect mutual understanding, they had a carefree married life, but one tragic event changed the smooth flow of bliss and turned one into stone and the other into ashes.
