NARADA

Desire For Marriage

There are many strange stories about Narada. One such story runs thus:

Narada had a nephew called Parvata. One day these two together went to the palace of Ambarisha, the ruler of Ayodhya.

Ambarisha had a beautiful daughter by name Srimati. She was an embodiment of all good qualities. Narada and his companion were attracted by her beauty. Each of them wanted to marry her! They secretly disclosed to Ambarisha their heart's desire.

Ambarisha was in a fix. How could he disobey the sages? He said to them:

"0 revered sages, both of you desire the hand of my daughter. How am I to decide? Well, I shall arrange a Swayamvara. Whomsoever Srimati selects shall be her husband."
