Mother of Yudhisthira – Who is the Mother of Yudhisthira in the Mahabharata?


Who is the mother Yudhisthira in the Mahabharata? Was he divine born or from a human mother. Story mentioned in the Mahabharat answers as to who is the Mother of Yudhisthira. Queen Kunti was married to Pandu, the prince of Hastinapura. But Pandu could not have sexual union with Kunti because of a curse.

Kunti in her teenage due to her service to Sage Durvasa had got a boon that she will be able to summon a god and have children in him.

Pandu requested Kunti to make use of the boon.

Thus Yudhisthira was born when Kunti summoned Dharmaraja, (Yama, the Lord of Judgment)

The mother of Yudhisthira is Kunti.

Now a question arises as to did Kunti give birth to Yudhisthira or she received him as an infant as a blessing from Yama.

No one has ever bothered to answer this question in the scriptures but it is widely believed that she gave birth to Yudhisthira.
