Birth of Durvaasaa Muni (1)
Once Atri Muni and Anasooyaa did a severe Tap with the desire of a son. Brahmaa,
Vishnu and Mahesh got very pleased with them and all appeared before them together.
Atri Rishi got very happy to see all of them but got surprised too. He said I was
meditating on Bhagvaan but how come that you all came before me? The trio said -
"Whoever you were meditating on that is we three. We are very pleased with
your Tapasyaa, so ask what do you want to ask for?" Atri Rishi said - "I
have a desire to have a son like you." The trio granted his wish and went
away. Later he had three sons - A son was born from Atri's eyes, his name was
Chandramaa (Brahmaa Jee's Avataar).
Brahmaa Jee appointed him as the king of Braahman, medicines and constellations.
Among his other sons are Dattaatreya (Vishnu's
Avataar), and Durvaasaa Muni (Mahaadev's Avataar).
