BHARADWAJA

Boon from Indra for The People

At one time everywhere there were epidemic diseases spreading.The number of people suffering and dying of the diseases increased. The curse of the disease spread to the hermitage also. The sages also were affected. Nobody knew the symptoms or the treatment for the disease. At last, all the ascetics requested Bharadwaja for help.

"O Bharadwaja, this disease will first sap the energy of the body, Tormenting, weakening, finally it takes away life itself. There is only one way out of this. Indra must be propitiated and the science of Ayurveda should be learnt from him. No doubt, you are a great man; so, it is easy for you to learn Ayurveda. Learn Ayurveda from Indra and save us by curing this disease."

Immediately, when called by Bharadwaja, Indra appeared. He gifted Ayurveda as desired by Bharadwaja. Thereafter, Divodasa, pupil of Bharadwaja, gave it much publicity. Divodasa was considered the incarnation of the king of medical science - Dhanvantari.
