mandooki namak ek rishi the unaki patni ka nam itara tha . ye donon hi bhagavan ke bhakt the tatha atyant pavitr jivan vyatit karate the . donon hi ek doosare ka dhyan rakhate tatha hnsi khushi se samay katate the. du:kh tha to keval ek unake koee santan nahin thin. soch vichar ke pashchath putr prapti ki ichchha se donon ne kathin tapasya ki tatha bhagavan ne unaki tapasya tatha prarthana se prasann hokar unaki ichchha ko poora kar diya. unake ghar men ek putr ka janm hua jo atyant sundar evn akarshak tha. yah balak unaki mahanh tapasya ka phal tha. yadyapi bachapan se hi yah balak alaukik evn chamatkarapoorn ghatanaon ka janak tha lekin pray: chup hi rahata tha. kafi dinon ke pashchath usane bolana prarambh kiya. ashchary ki bat to yah thi ki vah jab bhi bolata vasudev vasudev hi kahata. ath varsh tak usane vasudev shabd ke atirikt aur koee shabd nahin kaha. vah akhen bnd kie chup baitha dhyan karata rahata. usake chehare par tez barasata tatha ankhon men tivr chamak thin. athaven varsh men balak ka ygyopavit snskar karaya gaya tatha pita ne use ved padhane ka prayas kiya lekin usane kuchh bhi nahin padha bas vasudev vasudev nam ka snkirtan karata rahata. pita hatash ho ge aur us moorkh samajhate hue usaki or dhyan dena bnd kar diya. parinamaroovaroop usaki mata ki or se bhi unhonne munh pher liya. kuchh dinon pashchath mandooki rishi ne doosara vivah kar liya jisase unake anek putr hue. bade hokar ye sabhi vedon ke tatha karmakand ke mahanh gyata hue. charon or unhin ki pooja hoti thi. bechari poorv patni ghar men hi upekshit jivan vyatit kar rahi thi. usake putr aitarey ko isaka bilkul dhyan nahin tha. vah har samay bhagavan vasudev ka nam japata rahata tatha ek mandir men pada rahata. ek din man ko ati kshobh hua. ve mandir men hi apane putr ke pas pahunchi aur usase kahane lagin tumhare hone se mujhe kya labh hua, tumhen to koee poochhata hi nahin hai, mujhe bhi sabhi ghrina ki dashti se dekhate hain. batao aise jine se mera kya labh hai.

mata ki aisi du:khapoorn baten sunakar aitarey ko kuchh dhyan hua vah bola man tum to snsar men asakt ho jabaki yah sasanr aur isake bhog sab nashavan hai keval bhagavan nam hi saty hai, usi ka main jap karata hoon lekin main ab samajh gaya hoon ki mera apani man ke prati bhi kuchh kartavy hai. main use ab poora karoogan aur tumhen aise sthan par padasin karoogan jahan anek ygy karake bhi nahin pahuncha ja sakata. us kal men hamare rirshiyon ne devashakti ko khoj liya tha. ve unako prasann evn sntusht karake jaga lete the tatha apani pratyek manokamana ko unase poorn kara lete the. yah shakti samuchit vidhi vidhan dvara ygyon ko karane se prapt ho jati thi. aitarey ne bhi yahi kiya. usane bhagavan vishnu ki sachche hriday se prarthana ki jo ved men ankit hai tatha unaki kripa prapt karane ke lie pratyek vidhi vidhan ka ashray liya. bhagavan vishnu prasann ho ge tatha sakshat prakat hokar aitarey aur unaki mata ko arshivad diya. bhagavan vishnu ke darshan pakar mata to apane jivan ko dhany manane lagi. yah usake putr ki tapasya ka hi phal tha jo mata ko bhi prapt hua. aitarey to jaise vihral ho gaya. usaki ankhon se ashruon ki jaladhara bahane lagi. usane bhagavan se karabaddh prarthana ki tatha apane aur apani man ke lie adesh chaha jisase unaki man ko shanti aur sukh ki prapti ho. bhagavan vishnu bole yadyapi tumane vedon ka adhyayan nahin kiya lekin meri kripa se tum sabhi vedon ke gyata ho jaoge tum ved ke ek agyat bhag ki bhi khoj karoge jo tumhare nam se aitarey brahman kahalaaiga. vivah karo, grihasthi basao tatha sabhi karmon ko karo lekin sabako mujhe samarpit kar do arthath yah sochakar karo ki mere adesh se kar rahe ho. unamen asakt mat hona tab tum snsar men nahin phnsoge. ek sthan jo kotitirth kahalata hai vahan jao. vahan par harimedha ygy kar rahe hain. tumhare jaise viddhan ki vahan jane par tumhari mata ki sabhi ichchhaen poori ho jaengi. itana kahakar aur aitarey ke sir par hath rakhakar bhagavan vishnu antardhan ho ge.

mata ka hriday apane putr ke prati bajay mamata ke shrriddha se otaprot ho gaya. usi ke karan to unhen bhi bhagavan ke darshan hue the tatha apani mata ke karan hi usane bhagavan ke nam ke atirikt kuchh bola tha. ab donon mata aur putr bhagavan ki agya ka palan karate hue harimadha ke ygy men pahnch ge. vahan aitarey ne bhagavan vishnu se snbndhit prarthana ka gan kiya use sunakar tatha unake tez aur vidvata se sabhi upasthit vidvanh prabhavit ho ge. harimedha ne unhen oonche asan par baithakar unaka parichay prapt kiya tatha unaki avabhagat ki.

aitarey ne yahin par ved ke navin chalis adhyayon ka path kiya jo abhi tak agyat the tatha bad men jo aitarey brahan ke nam se vikhyat hue. harimedha ne aitarey ko suyogy var samajhate hue apani putri ka vivah unase kar diya. aitarey ki mata ko aisa yogy vidvanh tatha tapasvi putr ke janm dene par bhoori bhoori prashnsa ki tatha aitarey se bhi adhik samman pradan kiya. mata jo bhi apane putr se kamana karati thi vah sab usako prapt ho gaya tha. ab vah sukhapoorvak apane putr tatha putravadhoo ke sath rahane lagi. maharshi aitarey ka nam sada sada ke lie amar ho gaya.

anuvratah pituah putro matra bhavatu snmanaah.
jaya patye madhumati vayn vadatu shantivamh..
putr pita ke anukool kam kare aur mata ke sath saman man vala ho, patni pati se mithi aur sukh dene vali vani bole.
