Do you know how the curse of a pure devotee of Lord Krishna on Nalakuvara and Manigriva, sons of Kuvera, turned auspicious?
The story of Nalakuvara and Manigriva and their deliverance by Krishna, under the all-blissful desire of the great sage Narada, is described herein.
The two great demigods Nalakuvara and Manigriva were sons of the treasurer of the demigods, Kuvera, who was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. By the grace of Lord Shiva, Kuvera’s material opulence had no limit. As a rich man’s sons often become addicted to wine and women, these two sons of Kuvera were no exception. Once, these two demigods, desiring to enjoy, entered the garden of Lord Shiva in the province of Kailasa on the bank of the Mandakini Ganges. There they drank much and engaged in hearing the sweet singing of the beautiful women who accompanied them in that garden of fragrant flowers.
While they were thus enjoying themselves in the water, all of a sudden Narada, the great sage, happened to pass that way. The two demigod sons of Kuvera were so much intoxicated that they could not appreciate the presence of the sage Narada and therefore did not cover their bodies. On seeing the two demigods so degraded by intoxication, Narada desired their welfare, and therefore he exhibited his causeless mercy by cursing them.
Sage Narada cursed that the two demigods Nalakuvara and Manigriva should remain for one hundred years, in the time of demigods, in the form of trees, and after that they would be fortunate enough to see the Supreme Personality of Godhead face to face, by His causeless mercy. And thus they would be again promoted to the life of the demigods and become great devotees of the Lord. 🏙 #fromstreetwithlove #instatags @insta.tags #life_is_street #instatags @insta.tags #ig_shutterbugs #worldstreetphotography #photoobserve #streetphoto #loves_street #streetlife #street_photo_club #streetleaks #streetphotography #ig_streetphotography #raw_streets #ig_streetpeople #worldstreetfeature #street_storytelling #streetselect #capturestreets #ourstreets #streetsgrammer #wearethestreet #street_focus_on #everybodystreet #lensculturestreets #streetdreamsmag #storyofthestreet #street
