NACHIKETA

Fruit of a Sacrifice

But Vishwavara had no issue. She was pining to have a child. "0 God, bestow me with a son who will enhance the fame of our family" - this was her daily prayer. Vajashravas used to console her saying, "Don't worry, dear. I will please the gods by performing a sacrifice and they will bless us with a son."

The sacrifice was performed. Vishwavara devi conceived. A bright little son was born to her on an auspicious day. Her joy was boundless, Vajashravas too was very happy.

The boy was named Nachiketa at a grand ceremony. The child was a beauty to behold - golden-colored body, sparkling eyes, attractive nose, soft cheeks, a tilak on the forehead, and a beautiful smile on the lips. Who would not be tempted to take such a child in their arms and fondle him?
