story of the birth of the trinity
Maharishi Atri was such a sage who according to his name was devoid of all the three gunas – Satoguna, Rajoguna, Tamogun. He did not have any kind of desire, nor did he have any kind of attachment or hatred, nor did he have any kind of greed or attachment.
His wife Anasuya also behaved and thought in the same way as her husband. Once Brahma ji, seeing such attitude of his, said – “O sage! Now both of you should produce children, so that worthy sons like you may be born and virtue may spread.
Atri said – ‘O Brahmadev! You yourself are doing this work for the creation of the universe and for the expansion of the progeny, the skilled Prajapati is doing this work. We want to do penance. This is our happiness and this is our best karma.
Atri said- “O Brahmadev! You yourself are doing this work for the creation of the universe and for the expansion of the progeny, the skilled Prajapati is doing this work. We want to do penance. This is our happiness and this is our best karma.
Brahma ji said – “These thoughts of yours are good, you should do penance and deeds only.”
Atri, along with his wife Sati Anasuya, began to meditate with selfless devotion, concentrating in the quiet lonely deserted forest of Dandakaranya. He had no desire to get any fruit or to get a boon by penance.
In his ascetic life, he did not even care about the sun, cold, rain. Prana kept himself alive with the help of air. After many years, the three gods, Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh, pleased and appeared to him together. Said- “Atri, get up. This harsh penance of yours affected all three of us, so all three of us have come together to fulfill your desired wishes.”
When Atri opened his eyes with Anasuya, Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh were literally standing in front of him. Atri along with his wife fell at his feet and started praising with emotion.
Said to the gods – “What should I ask Lord? I have no desire for wealth and fame, nor do I desire to reside in Dev-loka, Swarga-loka and Baikuntha. There is no need for salvation. We have got your vision. Our penance was successful.”
The gods said – “Atri! One has to ask for some boon, otherwise our dignity of being happy will decrease. So definitely ask for something.”
Atri was furious and said with folded hands – “I do not understand what to ask. We had a desire for your darshan, it has come true. Now there is no more desire, yet there is only so much urge to give a boon, then there is a desire, in the same way, we both keep on seeing you regularly. Therefore, Lord, all three of you take birth in the form of sons here, you will continue to get the darshan of the children’s pastimes. O Brahmadev! You even once gave us the order to create, then you will also obey that command.
Brahma laughed. Shri Vishnu and Shiva accepted this prayer of Atri and said – “The devotee’s wish will surely be fulfilled.”
After some years Anasuya had three children. The child born from the part of Vishnu was named Dattatreya, the child born from the part of Brahma was named Moon and the son born from the part of Shiva was named Durvasa. Atri-Anasuya’s life became blessed with the birth of these three sons. The yogis and yatis, whose darshan once performed austerity to attain, the same three deities lived in the courtyard of Atri-Anusuya, whispering in the form of a child. Seeing the upbringing of these three children and their child-lila, they used to get immense happiness.
Story of Sati Anasuya
Anasuya was a great devotee. When Rama-Lakshmana and Sita had come to Dandakaranya to spend their time of exile in Treta Yuga, they stayed in the ashram of Maharishi Atri. Anasuya had given many sermons to Sita and applied many types of pastes and cosmetics on her body so that there would be no effect of wild wind on her body.
Atri said to Rama in a rage- “Narayan, you are doing Narleela. You have accepted the permission to come to the forest only to destroy the wicked and the demons. Other sages are also waiting to see you in Dandakaranya. Please bless them also by giving them your darshan. Shri Ram then fulfilled his wish by giving darshan to other sages.
Maharishi Atri enjoys a prominent place in the Saptarshi Mandal located in the sky. He is considered one of the sages among the Saptarishis.
mythological stories of india in – the story of Ajamil
Glory of the name Narayan In ancient times a Brahmin named Ajamil lived in Kanyakubja (present-day Kannauj city). In his early life, he was a very virtuous and brahminical person. He used to lead a sattvik life by regularly performing yagyas, havans etc.
Unfortunately, once he fell in love with a mischievous woman and started living as his wife. Because of his misogyny, his thoughts got corrupted and he started making a living by misdeeds. He was always engaged in evil deeds like robbery and murder. He had ten sons from the maidservant. He had great affection for the youngest son of them. He named him Narayan.
Ajamila engaged in even more evil deeds because of the encouragement of blasphemous deeds on behalf of his wife and children. Along with heinous acts like theft, lying, robbery and murder, he also started drinking too much, due to which his health also deteriorated.
Once he fell very ill. No one comes to serve him. Now he came to know that the same people for whose sustenance he kept doing blasphemous deeds, now do not even ask him. Due to illness, he used to lie on the cot, being disabled. He did not even have the ability to get up and sit on his own. Only the younger son Narayan would come to him after hearing his call and listen to him. That’s why he would always call him by the name ‘Narayan Narayan’.
He had an incurable disease. One day when he realized that he would not survive and that he would die, he became distraught and started calling his younger son as ‘Narayan-Narayan’. Until Narayan reached him, he kept chanting ‘Narayan-Narayan’. When Narayan came to him, he got disheartened and overwhelmed with life and held her hand and said, ‘Narayan-Narayan! He died as soon as he said this much. After his death, the eunuchs came to take his soul and started taking his soul to hell. Then the messengers of Vishnu also came there, who had come to take him to Baikunth Dham. He said to the eunuchs- “You cannot take the soul of Ajamil to hell. At the time of death, he had called Lord Vishnu as ‘Narayan-Narayan’ many times, so now this creature is the owner of heaven.
The eunuchs laughed and said, “The account of his whole life is written in the book of Chitragupta. According to him he always indulged in evil and sinful deeds throughout his life. You who talk of ‘Narayan’, it was not calling Lord Vishnu in the form of Narayan. He was calling his younger son by his name.
The angels said, “In his early life he was a good worker. He has committed sinful deeds by falling in the company of a woman. After all this, only on the pretext of the son’s name, it always kept saying ‘Narayan-Narayan’ and in the last moment it gave up its life by saying ‘Narayan-Narayan’, so this creature is entitled to go to Baikunth Lok only with so much merit. . We will take this with us to Baikunth Lok.”
Thus Ajamil became the right to go to Bankut with the glory of the name of ‘Narayan’.

krishna-jarasandha war episode
Shri Krishna had taken the incarnation only to take off the burden of the earth. When a sinner like Jarasandha himself has brought the asuras together, then he should do the work for which he has incarnated. With this thought, Shri Krishna meditated on his form. Two divine chariots of the Lord descended from the sky. Among them were the weapons-wheel, mace, bow, quiver etc. of the Lord and the plow and pestle of Balarama.
Equipped with weapons, both the brothers sat on the chariots. The flag of Garuda was on Shri Krishna’s chariot and Taladhwaja on Balarama’s chariot. As soon as he came out of the city, Shri Krishna blew the Panchjanya conch. The hearts of the enemies trembled at the terrible sound of the conch.
Jarasandha went ahead and said, “I am ashamed to fight with you. He is the murderer of his uncle. I will not fight with you. Balarama! If you have the courage then come. I will fight with you Either I will die or I will kill you.”
Shri Krishna said, “Veer men do not speak so loudly.”
Krishna-Balram’s army was very small in front of Jarasandha’s army like Mahasamudra, yet both the brothers destroyed Jarasandha’s army. Countless arrows were coming out of Lord Krishna’s bow. With the help of Balarama, the great heroes started getting killed. The entire army of Jarasandha was destroyed, then Balram ji tied Jarasandha and put him at the feet of Shri Krishna. Shri Krishna thought, it should be left so that it brings army again and again and I keep destroying it. Krishna left her with her neglect.
Jarasandha returned to his capital in shame. The fellow kings of Jarasandha persuaded him and advised him to attack Mathura again.
In this way Jarasandha attacked Mathura seventeen times. Every time Shri Krishna destroyed his entire army. With the idea of making a strong attack for the eighteenth time, Jarasandha marched from the capital after making very heavy preparations. At the same time, Kalayavan, sent by Narada along with his three crore mlecchas, climbed on Mathura.
krishna-jarasandha war episode
Shri Krishna-Balram prepared a strategy – on one side there was Kalayavan and on the other side Jarasandha. In such a situation, if the attention is diverted from one side, then our brothers and sisters will be killed, thinking that both the brothers built a huge city inside the sea, in which even the wind could not enter. As soon as he remembered the Lord, Vishwakarma built Dwarkapuri and made the people of Mathura sleep in it overnight. Vishwakarma had built the divine city. Indra sent a sudharmasabha. Sitting in that meeting, hunger, thirst and unrighteousness could not even touch.
Shri Krishna came out of the huge gate of Mathura as soon as he took up arms with Balarama.
When Kalayavan saw a divine, wonderful man, he soon recognized that he was Vasudeva. It is coming here without arms. Kalayavan ran towards Krishna. When Krishna saw him, he left the battle and ran away facing the other side. Nath leaving the battle in front, Kalayavan behind him. While running, Krishna entered a cave. Kalayavan also went back and forth to the cave. He was shouting, “Hey, you call yourself a brave man, why are you running away from the battlefield now.”
A man was sleeping in that cave. Shri Krishna draped his dupatta to her and hid himself under the cover of a pillar. When Kalayavan saw it, he thought that Krishna has slept hiding here. He threw a kick at the sleeping man. The man got up in anger. He looked towards Kalayavan. Kalayavan was consumed at that very moment. He was a majestic king named Muchukunda of the Ikshvaku dynasty. When the Devasura war was going on, King Muchukunda protected the deities for a long time.
It was Indra had told the king at that time that we will give you whatever you ask for apart from salvation. King Muchukunda had asked for the boon of sleep. The gods gave him the boon of sleep to rest and said – ‘The one who disturbs your sleep will be consumed automatically.’
After Kalayavan was consumed, Lord Krishna appeared to King Muchukunda and gave him the boon of attaining the supreme abode by giving him the sermon of knowledge. Muchukund went to Badrikashram and started worshiping the Lord.
Krishna returned to Mathura, killed the army of Kalayavan and snatched all the money and started preparing to go to Dwarka. In this, Jarasandha with his huge army came to attack Mathura for the eighteenth time. Shri Krishna pretended as if he was frightened and started running away on foot, leaving chariots, money etc. Jarasandha also ran after them. While running, Krishna climbed the high mountain mountain. Jarasandha searched a lot, but he did not see Krishna anywhere. Then he set fire to the mountain. When Krishna saw that the mountain was burning, he jumped on the earth from above and reached Dwarkapuri surrounded by sea. Jarasandha understood that Krishna was burnt to ashes in the mountain fire; So he returned to his capital. No one has been able to burn religion and truth. It never gets destroyed.

Bali said, “She is neither a goddess, nor a manushi nor a demonic. What is it and what does it mean, so you ask from it.”
“Goddess! Who are you and why are you leaving Asuraraj and coming towards me?”
On this, she said, “Devendra! Neither I know Virochana nor his son this sacrifice. Pundits call me by the names of Dussa, Vidhitsa, Bhuti, Shri and Lakshmi. You and other gods don’t even know me.”
Indra asked – “Arya! You stayed near Bali for a long time. Now seeing what flaw in the sacrifice and the quality in me, are you leaving them and coming to me?
Lakshmi said- “Devendra! No one can remove me from my place, the creator, the creator. Due to the influence of time, I leave one and go to the other. So don’t disrespect the sacrifice.”
Indra asked, “Beautiful! Why don’t you want to be with the demons anymore?”
mythological stories in hindi
Lakshmi said – “Where truth, charity, fasting, austerity, might and righteousness reside, I live there. Asuras are turning away from them at this time. Earlier he was Satyawadi, Jitendriya and well-wisher of Brahmins. But now they are jealous of brahmins, their first hand touches ghee, eat indecent food and behave arbitrarily by breaking the limits of religion. Earlier they were engaged in fasting and penance. Waking up every day before sunrise and never eating curd or sattu at night. He slept only in the half of the night, during the day he never took the name of sleeping. He used to show mercy to the poor, orphans, old, weak, sick and women and arranged food and clothes for them. Distraught, depressed, frightened, sick, weak, suffering and whoever had lost everything, he always consoled and helped him. Earlier, being mutually friendly at the time of work, he was always devoted in the service of the gurus and elders. They did not eat well prepared food and eat it alone. Earlier they used to give to others and then take them for their own consumption. Treating all beings as his own, he used to show mercy to them. Cleverness, simplicity, enthusiasm, egolessness, cordiality, forgiveness, truthfulness, charity, austerity, purity, kindness, soft speech and deep love for friends—all these qualities were always present in him. Sleepiness, laziness, unhappiness, fault-vision, indiscretion, dissatisfaction and desire—these bad qualities could not even touch them. But now all these things seem strange and opposite. Religion is no longer in them. They are always under the control of lust and anger. In the meetings of elders, these virtuous demons make fun of them by taking faults in them. When old people come, these people do not even get up from their seats. The woman does not obey the husband, the son obeys the father. The respect of mother, father, old man, teacher, guest and gurus arose in them. No attention is paid to the proper upbringing of the children. Even their cooks are no longer pure. Small children keep their eyes fixed with hope and the demons eat the food items alone. They bind the animals in the house, but do not honor them by giving them fodder and water. They sleep till sunrise and consider the morning as night. Often day and night there is discord in their house. Now they have started having varna hybrid children. The Vedas give equal respect or disrespect to the Brahmins and the Moors. They snatch the jagirs given by their ancestors to the brahmins because of atheism. The disciples now get the gurus to do service. The wife rules over the husband and calls by his name.
In short, all of them have become ungrateful, atheists, sinners and selfish. Now his body was no longer as sharp as before. That’s why god! Now I have decided that
I will not stay in their house. For this reason I am coming towards you by abandoning the demons. you accept me Wherever I live, there will be eight goddesses like Asha, Shraddha, Dhriti, Kshanti, Vijiti, progeny, Kshama and Jaya – these eight goddesses will also reside with me. Along with me, all these goddesses have also left the demons and have come. The mind of you deities is now engaged in religion, so now we will reside here only for you.
Thereafter Indra greeted those Lakshmi ji. All the gods also came there to see him. After that all came back to heaven. Naradji praised the arrival of Lakshmi. Then again everyone showered flowers and nectar with gaiety. From then on again the whole world became righteous and happy.
Indian mythological stories with morals in- Yudhishthira Katha Context
Effect of untruth In the war of Mahabharata, Dronacharya was destroying the Pandava army. Whoever the hero of the Pandava side fell in front of him, he would have killed him. The great masters were worried. If Acharya had weapons in his hands, no one could have defeated him. If they keep their weapons, only then victory is possible. At the beginning of the war, he himself told that on hearing some very unpleasant news from a trusted person, he renounces his weapon and becomes meditative. Shri Krishna, the constant helper of the troubles of the Pandavas, reminded everyone of this. Bhimsen understood a solution. He started fighting with Drona’s son Ashwatthama. While fighting, Bhima got down from his chariot and, putting a mace under Ashwatthama’s chariot, threw him along with the chariot far away from the battlefield. There was also an elephant named Ashwatthama in the Kaurava army. Bhima also killed him with a single blow and then went in front of Dronacharya and started shouting and saying – ‘Ashwathama was killed. Ashwathama was killed.
Dronacharya was shocked, but he did not believe Bhimsen. He extended his chariot to ask the truth about Yudhishthira. Here, Shri Krishna said to Yudhishthira- “Your Majesty! There is no other way for your side to win. You must say that Ashwatthama was killed on the Acharya’s request. You say this when I tell you.”
Dharmaraja Yudhishthira was not ready to lie in any way, but he could not even avoid the words of Shri Krishna. When Dronacharya came to him and asked if the words of Bhimsen were true, then with great pain he said – ‘Ashwathama was killed’, the untruth was not told to him yet. ‘Man or elephant’ came out from his mouth, but as soon as Yudhishthira said – ‘Ashwatthama was killed’, in the same way Shri Krishna started blowing his Panchjanya conch. Dronacharya could not hear Yudhishthira’s next words because of the sound of the conch.
Dharmaraja Yudhishthira’s chariot always remained four fingers above the earth due to the effect of his integrity, but as soon as he spoke the sentence of this deceit, the wheels of his chariot fell on the ground and from now on his chariot also started moving on the ground like other chariots. .
