Why Sage Uttanaka Agreed To Be Chief Priest Of Snake Sacrifice in the Mahabharata

Sage Uttanaka was the chief priest of the Sarpa Satra, snake sacrifice, conducted by King Janamejaya in the Mahabharata. Janamejaya performed the sacrifice to avenge the death of his father, Parikshit. But why did Sage Uttanaka agree to become the chief priest of the Sarpa Satra, which intended to kill all the snakes on earth. Sage Uttanaka had a personal grudge towards snakes especially Takshaka. As Guru Dakshina, Sage Uttanaka was supposed to get the earrings of a queen. With much difficulty, Sage Uttanaka was able to get the earrings. However, Takshaka, the serpent king, stole it from him. From that day, the Sage was looking for an ideal opportunity to take revenge. He wanted to perform the snake sacrifice but did not have the resources to conduct it. He got the opportunity when Janamejaya decided to perform the Sarpa Satra. This story shows that all our actions will always have a result. We might not experience the result immediately. But our actions will follow us an

Teachings From Nitidvisastika

A collection of teachings from Nitidvisastika The life of such a person alone is fruitful, who, while living, makes a multitude of people also live their lives. Friendship with the good grows day by day just as the sap of from top to bottom, joint by joint. Friendship of the wicked is opposite in nature to this. A wicked person put on three different colors like a chameleon. At first acts like a relative, next as a friend, and at the end turns out to be an enemy. The wealth of a man who neither gives it away in charity nor enjoys it himself, does not actually belong to him, is like a scarecrow that protects the crop only for the sake of others. A creeper that has been cut can be made to grow again, but it will never look as beautiful as it used to. Similarly, an affectionate relationship that has been spoilt, can be revived again, but it will not have the same charm as it used to. A noble man makes a gift of charity respectfully and without publicity. Mean men also prac
