Story of Sage Ashtavakra’s Marriage

The story of Sage Ashtavakra’s marriage is found in the Anusasana Parva of the Mahabharata. The sage wanted to marry Suprabha, daughter of Sage Vadanya. Ashtavakra disclosed his love for Suprabha to her father. Sage Vadanya agreed to the marriage but before that Ashtavakra had to pass a test.

Wisdom from Srimad Bhagavad Purana

As when the sun rises, the dewdrop vanishes away; when love grows all sins and ignorance disappear.
Even though apparently awake, one is still asleep, if one sees multiplicity.
He who has neither beginning, nor middle, nor end, who is all-pervading, infinite and omnipotent, allowed himself to be bound by Yashoda only because of her great love. He is the Lord Omnipotent, the Lord of all things, the controller of all; yet he permits himself to be controlled by those who love him.
The human body is like a boat, the first and foremost use of which is to carry us across the ocean of life and death to the shore of immortality. Srimad Bhagavad Purana
