At the point when Vishnu left, the incredible rishi Narada meandered over the Earth visiting Shiva Lingas in different blessed spots. The two Ganas of Shiva who were close to Narada at the swayamvara of the princess, known about his wanderings and moved toward him. Narada at that point had gotten unadulterated as a top priority.

They bowed to him and contacted his feet. They wished to get discharge from Narada’s revile. So they said to him,”Devarishi, kindly hear our words. We, who had irritated you at the swayamvara, are not actually brahmanas. We are the Ganas of Shiva. You had reviled us when your psyche was hoodwinked by the

deceptive fascination for the princess at the swayamvara. Understanding that the event was unfavorable we had stayed silent. We procured the product of our own activity. Nobody is to be censured for it. Kindly favor us now.”

Hearing the Ganas’ words articulated with dedication and regard, Narada answered affectionately, atoning his past fury,”Being the Ganas of Shiva, you are generally deserving of the admiration of good individuals. Around then, my brain had been corrupted. In that condition of fancy and slantedness of psyche,


I had sadly reviled both of you. What I have said will undoubtedly occur. Be that as it may, I will reveal to you the method of reclamation from the revile. If it’s not too much trouble, pardon my transgression now.

You will be brought into the world as asuras from the conceptive liquid of an incredible rishi and because of his force you will get the instructing position of the lord of asuras.

thou will be invested with success and strength. You will govern over the entire of the universe as fans of Shiva and you will acquire your previous situation in the wake of seeking passing on account of a sign of Shiva.”

On hearing these expressions of the respectable Narada, the two Ganas got charmed and returned to their dwelling place cheerfully.


Narada also was charmed. Pondering Shiva, he proceeded with his wanderings over the Earth and arrived at Kashi, the holiest out of every other place on earth and a most loved hotel of Shiva. Kashi is said to offer the blessing of Shiva and is indistinguishable with Shiva. The incredible rishi got satisfied at the top of the priority list. He had the darshana of Shiva, the Lord of Kashi, and loved him with incredible dedication.

Narada then, at that point went to Brahmaloka, his psyche being profoundly decontaminated by recollecting Shiva. He bowed to his dad, Brahma, with commitment and lauded him with different petitions. He then, at that point asked him numerous inquiries about the secrets of Shiva and his game in the universe.

Brahma started to portray the account of Gunanidhi, and Narada tuned in with please.

In the city of Kampilya*, there was a sacrificer named Yajnadatta. He was an adroit in the exhibition of yajnas. He knew the Vedas and Vedangas. As well as he was an incredible researcher of Vedanta.

His child, Gunanidhi, was of an exceptionally attractive appearance and sparkled like the moon. After the inauguration with the holy string, he took in every one of the sciences again and again. However, he had one defect : obscure to his dad, he enjoyed betting.

He took a ton of cash from his mom and lost the whole total in betting. He totally disregarded every one of the brahminical ways and lead of life. Also he was disinclined to the presentation of Sandhya supplications and ablutions. He started to tear down the Vedas, consecrated writings, devas and brahmanas.

In spite of the fact that his mom needed him to meet his dad sometimes, he never went close to his dad. Yajnadatta used to ask his wife,”What is our child Gunanidhi doing? He isn’t at home.”


What’s more, she would reply,”He has gone out a few seconds ago. So long he had been washing up and revering the gods. He has completed his Vedic investigation and has quite recently gone out some place in the organization of two companions to learn.” The helpless lady bamboozled her significant other consequently on the grounds that she had just a single child. The basic spouse knew nothing about the odious exercises of his child or his awful lead.

Because of his acceptable conduct he is respected by every one of the great individuals. Dear kid, a decent learning and relationship with men of righteous person is the best resource for a brahmana. How could it be that you don’t

check out such things? Your predecessors and granddads had all procured the standing of being acceptable Vedic researchers, all around scholarly in the shastras and entertainers of yajnas. Avoid the organization of fiendish individuals, partner with great men, direct your concentration toward learning and carry on with the brahmana lifestyle. Take great consideration of your better half and ensure her.”

Albeit continually exhorted by his mom hence, Gunanidhi didn’t surrender his dependence on betting.

The card shark replied,”It was your child who offered it to me. Try not to imagine that I alone am the champ of this ring. He has lost numerous expensive things to different players also. In the entire world, you would not discover a particularly pointless helpless speculator as your child.”


On hearing these words, Yajnadatta’s head bowed down with disgrace. He covered his face and head with a fabric and unobtrusively slipped once again into his home. Also, he went to his better half, who was an extremely modest woman, and reprimanded her out of frustration and sorrow,

“You have brought forth an evil kid. He has been taking numerous valuable items from our home and you have been securing him and misleading me this while. It is vain to be furious with you. I will take food solely after I wed once more! I’m childless now since that mischievous individual has contaminated the entire family. It is our custom to relinquish a particularly one to save the family.”

The brahmana scrubbed down, played out his day by day rituals and wedded the girl of a Vedic researcher that very day.

He has now violated and insulted the contributions made to Shiva, the Lord of the universe. He isn’t deserving of being moved by individuals like you.”

The Ganas recollected the lotus-like feet of Shiva and said,”Shiva’s thoughts of Dharma are unpretentious. They

can be noticed simply by people of inconspicuous and sharp vision, not by individuals like you

whose vision just incorporates the gross outside. Specialists of Yama, hear mindfully what this child

of Yajnadatta has done which has liberated him from sins.

The shadow of the light was falling on the highest point of the Linga and Gunanidhi forestalled it’s anything but a wick to the light, cutting a piece from his lower fabric.

Subsequent to portraying the story, Brahma said to Narada,”Thus, even the littlest help delivered to Shiva bears rich organic product on schedule. Let every individual who looks for joy understand this and proceed with the love of Shiva. Gunanidhi never focused on any demonstration of devotion.
