HARIDWAR
The Gate Way Of Heaven

ULIPI'S EPISODE

It is in the vicinity of this place Arjuna in Dwapara yuga met with a great problem. During his pilgrimage for one year thrust on him for breaking the rule of entering the apartment, where Dharmaraja and Droupadi were together, he visited this place. While he was enjoying a bath here, on hearing the glory of thirtha, he was dragged away by Ulipi, the enchanting teen-age beauty of a Nagaloka all on a sudden. Said she then, that his navamohankar roused love in her and she decided to be his wife. Arjuna narrating the whole episode preceding his yatra, pleaded that his vow of austerity for one year was standing in the way of fulfilling her desire. Thereupon she added, that she would die, if rejected, and he would have to incur the sin of Srihatya thereby. A greater predicament. Fearing that her hopeless infatuation might end in her untimely death, he preferred the violation of his vrata to saving her life. He married her, and their union, though lasted for a short period, blessed them with a son. He was called Iravat. Later, emerging from the same point, he proceeded further to completing the rest of pilgrimage.
