katha mahabharat se

indr ne brahma se poochha ki bali ka nivasasthan kahan hai. brahma ne usake prashn ka anauchity batate hue usase kaha ki kisi shoony ghar men ashv, go, gardabh adi men jo shreshth jiv ho, vahi bali hoga. indr ne pun: poochha ki ekant men milane par indr usaka hanan kare athava nahin. brahma ne kaha- 'nahin'. indr ne ek shoony ghar men gardabh yoni men bali ko dekha. indr ne tarah-tarah se, vyngyapoorvak usase poochha ki itane vaibhav, shakti, chhatr, chnvar tatha brahma ki di huee mala ke adhipati rahane ke uparant is nirih yoni men un sab tattvon se vihin hokar use kaisa lag raha hai? n vahan svarnadnd tha, n divyamala, n chnvar ityadi. bali ne hnsakar kaha ki 'usaka prashn anuchit hai tatha usaki samast vaibhav-snpann vastuen ek gupha men rakhi huee hain. achchhe din ane par vah pun: unhen grahan kar lega.' indr ka usake bure dinon men usaka parihas karana uchit nahin hai. asthir kalachakr ke parinamasvaroop kabhi bhi kuchh bhi ho sakata hai. tadanntar indr ke dekhate-dekhate bali ke sharir se ek sundari nikali. indr ne usaka parichay poochha to jana ki vah moortimati lakshmi thi. vah saty, dan, vrat, tapasya, parakram tatha dharm men nivas karati thi. us yoni ko prapt kar bali inamen se kisi ka bhi nirvah karane men samarth nahin tha. at: usake sharir se vah nikal ayi thi. indr ne kaha ki vah sharirik bal tatha manasik shakti ke anusar use grahan karega. sath hi usane aisa upay bhi poochha ki jisase lakshmi kabhi usaka parityag n karen yon koee bhi vyakti (devata ya manushy) akela, lakshmi ko dharan karane men samarth nahin tha.

lakshmi ke kathananusar indr ne lakshmi ke charon pairon ko kramash:-

  1. prithvi,
  2. jal,
  3. agni tatha
  4. satpurushon men pratishthit kar diya. indr ne kaha ki jo koee bhi lakshmi ko kasht dega, indr ke krodh tatha dnd ka bhagi hoga. tadanntar parityakt bali ne kaha ki soory jab astachal ki or nahin badhega tatha madhyahn kal men sthir ho jayega tab vah (bali) devataon ko parajit karega. indr ne bataya ki brahma ki vyavastha ke adhin soory dakshinayan tatha uttarayan to hoga par madhyahn men nahin rookega. indr ne kaha- 'bali, tumhen jidhar ichchha ho, chale jao. mainne tumhara vadh matr isalie nahin kiya ki main brahma se pratigya karake aya tha.' taduparant bali ne dakshin ki or tatha indr ne uttar ki or prasthan kiya.

mahabharat ke 228 adhyay men kaha gaya hai ki lakshmi apani ath sakhiyon-

  1. asha,
  2. shraddha,
  3. shanti,
  4. dhriti,
  5. vijiti,
  6. sntati,
  7. kshama aur
  8. jaya- ke sath vishnu ke viman par baithakar indr ke pas pahunchi kyonki daityon men anachar arnbh ho gaya tha. us samay narad bhi indr ke pas the.[1]
