Story of Bhangaswana, the king who remained a mother and woman

King Bhangaswana performed a powerful yajna and attained several sons. In the yajna, Indra, the king of celestial beings, was not made the main dignitary. Indra thus nursed a grudge against King. The story of Bhangaswana, who remained a mother and woman, begins from here.
Legend has it that one day during a hunting expedition King Bhangaswana came across a beautiful lake. He divided into the lake and played in the waters. When he came out of the lake he found himself transformed into a woman, this was due to the action of Indra who was secretly following the king.
The king was unable to face his subjects in the form of a woman. So he handed over his kingdom to his sons and stayed back in the forest.
The king here befriended a tribal man and they were blessed with several children. After several years the king sent the children to live their brothers in the kingdom.

Rabindranath Tagore Spiritual Thoughts

Pride of self interferes with the proper function of the soul which is to realize itself by perfecting its union with the world and the world’s God.
Avidya is the ignorance that darkens our consciousness, and tends to limit it within the boundaries of our personal self. It is this ignorance, this limiting of consciousness that creates the hard separateness of the ego, and thus becomes the source of all pride and greed and cruelty incidental to self seeking.
When a man lives the life of Avidya he is confined within his self. It is a spiritual sleep; his consciousness is not fully awake to the highest reality that surrounds him, therefore he knows not the reality of his own soul. When he attains Bodhi (the awakenment from the sleep of self to the perfection of consciousness), he becomes Buddha.
Rabindranath Tagore
