THE STORY OF THE PARIJATA TREE

How the Holy tree descended to the Earth

Which is one of the most fragrant flowers which is believed to be divine  ? They are the Parijata flowers .

Did you know that in ancient period, the Parijata flowers were not available on the earth? They were available only in Swarga loka or The Heaven , the abode of the Gods.

AS per mythology, Parijata Tree emerged during  the churning of the ocean or Samudra Mathan .It was placed in Nandana Vana , the garden of Indra . Here is the story of how the Parijata tree came to the earth.

Read about Samudra Mathan here :

Narakasura , the demon king, had stolen the celestial earrings of mother Aditi , who was the mother of the gods . Narakasura had  a boon that he could be only killed by his mother . He started wreaking havoc on the three worlds due to this boon.  People prayed to Lord Krishna to save them from the evil demon king . Satyabhama , an incarnation of Bhoodevi ,  was only one who could kill Narakasura . Lord Krishna , who knew this very well , took Satyabhama to Narakasura’s place to slay him . Satyabhama slew Narakasura and got the earrings from Bhagadatta , Narakasura’s son .  After  this , lord  Krishna and Satyabhama went to Swarga , the abode of the devas to return the earrings of mother Aditi . They went to heaven on the king of birds ,Garuda  who was also the  mount of Lord  Vishnu .

 Lord Krishna and Satyabhama returned the earrings  of mother Aditi and and prepared to return .Before they left , Indra showed them his garden  , named Nandana Vana. Satyabhama was fascinated with the fragrance of the parijata flowers . After Indra returned to his palace  , Satyabhama pleaded Krishna to take the tree with them  .When Krishna posed this request to Devendra , the latter refused . But Satyabhama was adamant .

Krishna challenged Indra to a fight!

Mounting on his elephant and wielding his Vajra , he set out to fight Madhusudhana . While Krishna , seated on Garuda , wielding   his Sharnga  , released his arrows at Indra .  The fight continued for some time , but who can match skill of the lord? Victory was the lord’s and the triumphant couple took the divine tree to Dwaraka where Satyabhama shared it with everyone . This how the parijata tree came to the Earth .

Even today ,the Parijata tree is believed to be divine and its  flowers are the Lord’s favourite .
