 Gayatri Mantra - India's Immortal Blessing to the World!  Maharshi Vishwamitra is the seer of the Gayatri Mahamantra of Sama Rigveda, a collection of energy and common sense.  Achieved Rajarshi position with penance and diligence.  Not only that, he became Brahmarshi with the blessing of renunciation and gentleness.  Vishwamitra is an unforgettable character in the history of India, shining in the sky even today.


 In the past we enjoyed the biography of Vedana Maharshi Vashishta.  Today we will pay a visit to his contemporary and competitor Maharshi Vishwamitra.  In the biography of Maharshi Vashishta we have seen the events with Maharshi Vishwamitra.  So let's not repeat it here.  In particular, we must remember the contribution made by both Maharishis in shaping the life of Lord Rama.


 Maharshi Vishwamitra is one of the original Maharishis of Veda.  Usually the biographies of Veda sages are found in Puranas and Ramayana or Mahabharata.  Details of Maharshi Vishwamitra's biography are found in the Mahabharata and other Puranas.


 Biography

 Vishwamitra Chandravanshi is the son of Maharaja Gadhi of the Kushik dynasty.  That is why he is also called Gadheya.  The story of his manifestation is very interesting.  Maharaja Gadhi had a charismatic girl named Satyavati.  She was married to the great ascetic sage Richik.  Satisfied with Satyavati's service, sage Richike gave the sacrificial offerings to his wife.  Prasad's charu had two parts.  One part was to be given to Maharaja Gadhi's wife and Satyavati's mother and the other part was to be taken by Satyavati herself.  Giving prasad, Richik told his wife that by the grace of Yagnanarayana, he would have a great ascetic son and his mother would have a heroic son with Kshatriya virtues.  After offering Yajna to Satyavati, the sage went to the forest to perform penance.


 On the other hand, when Maharaja Gadhi arrives at Richik's ashram to meet his daughter, Satyavati talks about the offerings given by the sage.  However, fortunately she and her mother's offerings have changed.  The prasad which Satyavati was to take is accepted by the mother and the part taken by the mother is taken by Satyavati.  Both women become pregnant by the grace of Yajna Prasad.  The sage who is doing penance in the forest realizes this while meditating.  However, they reassure Satyavati.  A cultured and civilized child is born in the womb of Satyavati.  Which is named Jamadagni.  The son of Jamadagni became the great and powerful Lord Parashuram.  Vishwamitra, on the other hand, is a very bright son to the mother.  Thus there is a small-dohitra relationship between Parashuram and Vishwamitra.

Vishwamitra's Veda-sadhana

 The oldest of the Vedas is the Rig Veda and it has ten congregations.  Its third congregation has 62 suktas (mantras).  Rishi Maharshi Vishwamitra is the mantra seer of all the suktas of the third mandal.  So, the third Mandal of this Rigveda is called 'Vaishwamitra Mandal'.  In this mandal there are hymns of deities like Indra, Aditi, Agni, Usha, Ashwini and Ubhu.  The tenth mantra of the 62nd sukta of the third mandala of the Rig Veda is famous as 'Tatsaviturvarenyam Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo Yon: Prachodayat' Gayatri Mantra.  Usually the sadhana of Vedmantra is done with Pranav.  This mantra is also called Brahmagayatri.  It is considered to be the root of all Vedmantras.  That is why Gayatri is also called Vedmata.  At the time of Upanayan Sanskar, Guru gives initiation to Gayatri and from this duality is obtained.  An entire article about Gayatri Mantra has been published earlier in Vedvani.  So let's not discuss it in particular but it can be said that Gayatri mantra is the pinnacle of Indian spirituality.


 Maharshi Vishwamitra achieved the Gayatri Mantra.  Due to which he received many miraculous powers.  He preached the sadhana of Gayatri and due to which India has got many powerful seekers for thousands of years.  In addition to the philosophy of suffering, he has composed the Vishwamitra Samhita, Vishwamitra Kalpa and Vishwamitra Smriti, in which he has given the rules of penance, sacraments and conduct.  However, his main point in all this is Gayatri Sadhana.


 Maharshi Vishwamitra and Maneka

 The Mahabharata has an interesting anecdote of Vishwamitra and Maneka.  Maharshi Vishwamitra was a great ascetic.  His penance made Indrasan dolly.  Indradev was afraid that Vishwamitra might grab his Devraj position somewhere due to the heat!  So he sent Maneka, the most beautiful nymph of heaven, to break Vishwamitra's penance.  Maneka and Kamadeva created a beautiful environment in the forest.  A beautiful cool sweet, sweet and fragrant wind began to blow.  Maneka was an excellent dancer.  He tried to break Vishwamitra's penance with a beautiful gesture.  In the beginning, the penance of the strong ascetic Vishwamitra remained intact.  But Vishwamitra is captivated by the form of Maneka and the beautiful solitude of the forest.  They seem to love Manka.  Both of them spend some time in the forest.


 Maneka gives birth to a beautiful girl from Maharshi Vishwamitra.  However, Vishwamitra, distressed by his own ejaculation, resumes his penance and the nymph Maneka returns to heaven.  Birds protect the newborn baby.  Meanwhile, Maharshi Kanva comes there and raises the girl beautifully.  The bride is named Shakuntala after the Shakunta birds.  This bride is married to Maharaja Dushyant.  His descendants are known as Bharatvanshi after Shakuntala and Dushyant's majestic son Bharat.  Not only that, the name derived from Bharat is becoming the identity of the entire country.  This event has been immortalized by the great poet Kalidasa through a play called 'Abhijnan Shakuntal'.  Thus, the love affair between Vishwamitra and Maneka became a beautiful landmark in the history of India!


 Trishanku and Harishchandra

 There are many interesting occasions in the biography of Maharshi Vishwamitra.  King Trishanku obviously wanted to go to heaven.  He performed Yajna under the guidance of Maharshi Vishwamitra.  By the grace of Maharishi, King Sadehe departs to heaven.  The gods and Indra, on the other hand, worry about breaking the natural law.  That is why the king is stopped in the middle.  It hangs between earth and heaven.  The term 'hung' is derived from it.  However, by his own yoga power, Maharshi creates a new paradise for the hung.  Here is an introduction to Maharshi's surrender-vatsalta.

 A similar motivational story is from the truthful king Harishchandra.  Lord Rama was born in his dynasty.  Maharshi Vishwamitra examines Harishchandra's Satyavrat.  Asks for his royal lessons from the king.  Even after a hard battle, when Harishchandra does not waver, Maharshi is pleased and returns the Rajpath to him and resurrects his son Rohitashva.
