DRAUPADI

Sathyavantha

Savithri’s servants and companions went with her. Ashwapahi sent his old minister with her. They visited many kingdoms. They visited sages, bowed to them, and received their blessings. Savithri gave alms and made generous gift at holy places. But she did not meet any young man who won her heart.

Savithri began the journey back home. On the way they came to a forest. They saw an old couple under a tree. Near them was a young man absorbed in work. He was peeling fruits and offering them to the old couple.

Savithri watched them. The young man’s face was gentle, but of arresting brightness. Savithri gazed with wide-open eyes. She lost her heart to the radiant handsome youth.

Savithri’s curiosity was now aroused. She called the old minister and said, "Sir, look at the old couple and the young man under the tree. Pray find out who they are?"

So the old minister went up to the youth. He asked him, "who are you? Who are these old persons? Why are you in this forest?"

The youth answered, "My name is Sathyavantha, and these are my parents. My father was once the king of Salvadesha. His name is Dyumathesna. My father lost both his eyes. His enemies who were just waiting for an opportune-moment only attacked the kingdom. My blind father was easily defeated so we all came to the forest.

The minister went back to Savithri and reported what he had learnt.

The youth’s dignity and brave look had impressed Savithri at the very first glance. When she heard the minister’s words the concluded that Sathyavantha was a good and noble youth, and decided to marry him.

Her task was done and the choice made, and so she returned to Madradesha.

Savithri - God of Death bowed to her love and devotion and restored her husband to life
