Tilottama – Story of Apsara Tilottama

Tilottama is an apsara or celestial woman mentioned in various Hindu scriptures. Her story is found in the Mahabharata and Puranas. As per Mahabharat, Lord Brahma once asked Divine architect Vishwakarma to create a maiden using various kinds of gems. The woman who was created bit by bit from gems was called Tilottama.
Her beauty was the talk of heaven and earth. Both Devas and Asuras yearned for her. Great warriors from both the camps wanted to marry her.
Her beauty caused the downfall of two demon brothers – Sundaand Upasunda. They could not be defeated as long as they were together. But Tilottama easily caused divide among the brothers. They were then defeated by the Devas.

Legend has it that the divine beauty was created by Brahma with the sole purpose of defeating Asuras Sunda and Upasunda.

When the mind manages itself better, it can manage anything – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Management begins in the mind. When the mind manages itself better, it can manage anything.
If you are committed to doing something to uplift life around you, if you are committed to compassion, to creativity, then the world will be a wonderful place.
Creativity can only come from silence. If we maintain two minutes silence every day, then we will see that a whole new dimension of life opens up.
Motivation comes from outside. Inspiration on the other hand, which comes from within, is more effective and long-lasting.
Inner motivation and inner transformation comes to people who are inspired to achieve excellence.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
