raja nal
nishadh desh men virasen ke putr nal nam ke ek raja ho chuke hain. ve bade gunavanh, param sundar, satyavadi, jitendriy, sabake priy, vedgy evn brahmanabhakt the. unaki sena bahut badi thi.. ve svayn astravidya men bahut nipun the. ve vir, yoddha, udar aur prabal parakrami bhi the. unhen jua khelane ka bhi kuchh-kuchh shauq tha.

damaynti se anurag

nishadh desh se vidarbh men janane vale bhi damayanti ke samane raja nal ke roop, gun aur pavitr charitr ka varnan karate. isase donon ke hriday men parasparik anurag ankurit ho gaya. ek din raja nal ne apane mahal ke udyan men kuchh hnson ko dekha. unhonne ek hns ko pakad liya. hns ne kaha - ‘ap mujhe chhod dijiye to ham log damayanti ke pas jakar apake gunon ka aisa varnan karenge ki vah apako avashy-avashy var legi.’ nal ne hns ko chhod diya. ve sab udakar vidarbh desh men gaye.

damaynti ka anurag

damayanti hns ke munh se raja nal ki kirti sunakar unase prem karane lagi. usaki asakti itani badh gayi ki vah rat-din unaka hi dhyan karati rahati. sharir dhoomil aur dubala ho gaya. vah din-si dikhane lagi. sakhiyon ne damayanti ke hriday ka bhav tadakar vidarbharaj se nivedan kiya ki ‘apaki putri asvasth ho gayi hai.’ raja bhim ne apani putri ke sambandh men bada vichar kiya. ant men vah is nirnay par pahuncha ki meri putri vivahayogy ho gayi hai, isaliye isaka svaynvar kar dena chahiye. unhonne sab rajaon ko svaynvar ka nimantran-patr bhej diya aur soochit kar diya ki rajaon ko damayanti ke svaynvar men padharakar labh uthana chahiye aur mera manorath poorn karana chahiye. desh-desh ke narapati hathi, ghode aur rathon ki dhvani se prithvi ko mukharit karate hue saj-dhajakar vidarbh desh men pahunchane lage. bhim ne sabake svagat satkar ki samuchit vyavastha ki.[1]

svaynvar

nishadh desh ke raja nal ne bhi is svaynvar ke liye prasthan kiya. udhar devalok se raja indr, varun, agni tatha yam - devata bhi ‘damayanti’ ko prapt karane ke liye chal diye. devataon ko bhali-bhanti vidit tha ki damayanti, raja ‘nal’ ko chahati hai. svaynvar ke lie ate samay marg men soory ke saman kirtivan ati-sundar raja ‘nal’ ke tej ko dekhakar devatagan ashcharyachakit rah gaye. madhy-marg men hi ve raja nal ke pas gaye aur bole ki rajan! suna hai apaki satyavritti ki pataka akash men laharati hai. kya is svaynvar men ap hamari sahayata ke liye hamara doot banana svikar karenge? raja nal ne devataon ka agrah svikar kar liya.

nal ki pariksha

devataon ne raja ki pariksha lete hue kaha ki he rajanh! ap hamare doot ke roop men damayanti se jakar kahie ki ham log usase vivah karana chahate hain. atah ham men se vah kisi ko bhi apana pati chun le. raja nal ne namrata - poorvak kaha ki he devalok vasiyo! ap log jis uddeshy se damayanti ke pas ja rahe hain, usi uddeshy se main bhi usake pas ja raha hoon atah vahan mera, apaka doot banakar jana uchit nahin hai. devatagan kahane lage ki he rajanh! ap pahale hi hamara doot banana svikar kar chuke hain. atah ab ap apani maryada ko tajakar apana vachan asaty na karen. raja nal ko devataon ka agrah svikar karana pada. sath hi sath indr ne raja nal ko varadan diya ki damayanti-svaynvar men pravisht hote samay apako dvarapal adi bhi n dekh sakenge, isase ap sahaj hi rajamahal men pravesh kar jayenge.

nal ka doot kartavy

tatpashchath raja nal, damayanti ke bhavan men pahunch gaye. damayanti tatha usaki sakhiyan param-sundar yuva-purush ko apane samip aya dekhakar ashchary-chakit rah gayin. vo apani sudh-budh hi kho baithin. raja nal ne damayanti se apana parichay dekar kaha ki he devi! main indr, varun, yam aur agni-devata ka doot banakar apake pas aya hoon. ye devatagan apase vivah karana chahate hain, atah ap inamen se kisi ko bhi apana ‘var’ chun sakati hain. damayanti ne raja nal ka parichay pakar kaha ki he narendr! main to pahale hi apane man men apako apana ‘var’ man chuki hoon. mainne apake charanon men apana sarvasv samarpit kar diya hai. atah kripaya ab ap apani is tuchchh dasi ko, apane charanon men sthan dijiye. yadi ap mujhe svikar nahin karenge to main vish khakar ya ag men jalakar athava jal men doobakar ya phir phansi lagakar apane pran tyag doongi. raja nal ne badi sachchaee se ‘doot’ ke kartavy ka palan kiya. vo apane kartavy par adig rahe. yadyapi ve svayn damayanti ko chahate the, phir bhi unhonne devaganon ke aishvary, prabhav adi ka varnan karake damayanti ko samajhane ka poorn prayatn kiya. lekin damayanti svarg ke aishvary tatha marichika se tanik bhi prabhavit nahin huee. raja nal ne kaha, he devi! devataon ko chhodakar apaka mujh manushy ko chahana, kadapi uchit v tark-sngat nahin hai. atah ap apana man unhin men lagao. devataon ko krodhit karane se manushy ki mrityu bhi ho jati hai. atah apako meri bat man leni chahie. yah sunakar damayanti dar gayi aur usake netron se ashrudhara pravahit hone lagi. damayanti kahane lagi, he rajanh! main devataon ko natamastak hokar, man men apako hi apana pati manati hoon. ab koee doosara upay sochane yogy nahin raha. phir bhi raja nal ne damayanti ko svaynvar men devataon ko hi apana var chunane ka paramarsh diya tatha vahan se vida li. lautakar devataon ko raja nal ne samast vrittant kah sunaya.

damaynti dvara varan

svaynvar ki sabha prarambh hone par charon devata raja nal ke saman apana ‘roop’ dharan karake, rajan ke pas baith ge. jab damayanti varamala lekar svaynvar-sabha men ayi tatha usane raja nal ke saman panch purushon ko padasin dekha to vah ‘nal’ ko n pahachan saki aur atyant soch men pad gee. use bada duahkh hua. ant men usane is samasya ke samadhan ke liye devataon ki sharan men jane ka nishchay kiya. damayanti kahane lagi, he param-poojy devaganon! apako vidit hi hai ki main pahale hi man tatha vani se raja nal ko apana pati-parameshvar svikar kar chuki hoon. raja nal ki prapti ke liye main chirakal se tap tatha vrat bhi kar rahi hoon. atah he bhagavanh! yadi main pativrata hoon to mere saty ke pratap se devalok ke devatagan mujhe mere raja nal ke darshan kara den tatha aishvaryashali devatagan bhi apane apako prakat karen, jisase main narapati nal ko pahachan sakoon. pativrata ka tiraskar karane ka sahas to devataon ko bhi nahin hota. damayanti ki is prarthana se prasann hokar devataon ne use ‘devata’ tatha ‘manushy’ men bhed karane ki shakti pradan kar di. usane dekha ki panch men se char purushon ke sharir par n to pasina hai, n dhool hai tatha unake sharir ki ‘chhaya’ prithvi par nahin pad rahi hai aur ve prithvi ko sparsh bhi nahin kar rahe hain v unaki mala ke ‘pushp’ tanik bhi nahin kunbhala rahe hain. damayanti ne sabhi devataon ko pahachanakar unhen pranam kiya. panchave ‘purush’ ko jisake sharir par kuchh dhool padi thi, kuchh pasina a gaya tha v usake sharir ki chhaya bhi prithvi par pad rahi thi tatha vah bhoomi ko sparsh bhi kar raha tha aur usaki mala ke pushp kuchh kunbhala gaye the, damayanti ne pahachan liya ki ye hi raja nal hain. usane turant unake knth men jayamala dal di. is prakar apani dridh-nishtha tatha pativrata ke prabhav se, damayanti ne pati roop men raja nal ko hi prapt kiya.[2]

jue men har

raja nal bade pratapi raja the. ve sarvagun sampann, sadachari aur praja palak the. unaki kriti ki gatha har disha men gaee jati thi. pata nahin ek din kya hua ki raja asavadhani vash shauchadi ke bad bina pavitr hue hi sndhya vndan karane lage. raja jaise hi apane niyamon ke prati sust hue unaki buddhi mnd ho gee. buddhi mnd huee to unake nirnay prabhavit hone lagen. ek din ve apane bhaee aur mitr raja pushkar ke sath baton-baton men jua khelanen baith ge. ve harane lage aur harate hi chale ge. harane ke lie apani patni damaynti ke alava kuchh bhi shesh nahin bacha. apani patni damaynti ko bhi danv par lagane hi vale the ki achchhe vicharon ne unhen aisa karane se rok liya. unhen yad a gaya ki yah vahin damaynti hai jo unaki dharmapatni hain. jab usake sath vivah hua tha to ashirvad dene ke lie indr adi devataon ko bhi ana pada tha. lekin jab tak unake man men achchhe vichar ate, tab tak to ve apana sarvasv kho chuke then. jue men sab harane ke bad apana bhara-poora rajapat chhod kar damaynti ke sath mahal se bahar nikal ge. ek galat nirnay ne raja ko barbad kar diya tha. idhar raja pushkar ne apane nagar men ghoshana kar di thi ki ’jo koee raja nal ya unaki patni damaynti ki kisi bhi prakar madad karega to use phansi ki saza de di jaegi.‘ isalie raja nal ki chah kar bhi unaki praja ne koee madad nahin ki. tin dinon tak apane nagar men bhookhe-pyasen bhatakane ke bad ve jngal ki or chal pade.

ek din raja nal ne kuchh khoobasoorat sunahare pnkhon vali pnchhiyon ka ek jhund dekha. unhen laga ki ve sabhi sone ke pnkhon vali chidaya hain jinhen pakad kar aur unake pnkhon ko bech kar dhan kamaya ja sakata hain. lekin bina jal ke pakadana snbhav nahin tha.

lekin lobh men raja ne phauran apane vastron ko sharir se utara aur usaka jal bana kar pnchhiyon ki taraph phenka. ve unako pakad pate isake pahale hi ve jal ke sath asaman men ud gee. raja nagn avastha men rah ge. unhen apane oopar kafi sharm a rahi thi. ek pratapi raja ki aisi mati bhrasht huee ki vah nagn ho gaya tha. unake pas tan dhakane ke lie vastr nahin the.[3]
