Story Of Goddess Usha Devi In Himachal Pradesh

Goddess Usha Devi is the consort of Surya Bhagavan, the Sun God in Hinduism. There is an interesting story of Usha Devi in Himachal Pradesh. Here she is the daughter of Banasur and sister of Sungra Maheshwar. Legend has it that Usha Devi was once a gloriously beautiful apsara (heavenly damsel) in the court of Indra in heaven. Once, when the penance and tapas of a human being   threatened to empower Indra beyond control, the king of Devas sent Usha to distract the human being. However the human being was a powerful ascetic. He was powerful enough to cast a spell that would make Usha Devi disappear at the rays of sun. And yet, her beauty was so powerful that just the merest glimpse of her, dawn after dawn, was enough to break the concentration of the ascetic. His tapasya failed and Indra was able to hold on to his position as king of Devas. After this incident Usha Devi became the goddess of dawn in Hindu religion.

Characteristics Of Treta Yuga

Treta Yuga is the second of the four yugas in Hinduism. It follows Krita Yuga. Treta Yuga lasts for 1,296,000 human years. In this yuga, Brahma promulgates the institution of a class system and the mind-born sons, the sages, lay down rules and regulations. At the instance of Brahma, Manu and the sages narrated smarta or textual and traditional codes of religion. Mantras manifested themselves automatically to Manu and the seven sages. Later on, the mantras manifested in icons of deities. Beauty, strength, intelligence, health, long life and righteous devotion, in addition to truth (uttering of sacred syllables), tapas (penance) and dana (religious gifts) are the hallmarks of this Treta yuga. In Treta Yuga, dandaniti, or justice by punishment, is said to be operative and dharma (righteousness) stands on three legs.

Be Not The Slave Of Passion - Mahabharata

Virtue characterizes the conduct of the good in this world. From peace would precede happiness of relatives and friends and of the whole world. When misfortune overtakes a man, he remembers the wise counsel of his father. He who cannot digest the words of his well-wishers because they are unpleasant is easily subjugated by his enemies. Be not the slave of passion. He who is controlled by passion loses the capacity to think and judge properly. Treat all with equal generosity. Sri Krishna talks to Duryodhana as Shantidoot or messenger of peace Revenge can only lead to doom. Mahabharata may revolve around the war of duty. But we cannot escape the fact that the major reason behind the destruction of all was revenge. The Kauravas lost everything to their blinded desire to ruin the Pandavas.
