The Matysa Purana now continues with a cataloguing of the main tirthas.
Chandra and Budha
You forgot to inform us how Budha was born, remarked the sages. Nor did you inform us anything about Chandra’s birth.
Romaharshana filled in the blanks. The sage Atri was Brahma’s son. Atri after performed really tough tapasya. A tremendous amount of power was released as a result of this meditation and the moon-god, Chandra or Soma, was born from this energy. Brahma appointed Chandra ruler over all stars, planets and herbs (oshadhi).
Twenty-seven of Daksha’ daughter have been married to Chandra. These had been the nakshatras (stars). Chandra performed a rajasuya yajna (royal sacrifice) and the ceremony was an outstanding success. But all this accomplishment and glory went to Chandra’s head. The preceptor of the gods was the sage Brihaspati and Brihaspati’s wife was Tara. Chandra’s eyes fell upon Tara and he forcibly abducted her. On many occasions Brihaspati asked Chandra to return Tara, but the moon-god would not listen.
A terrible war then raged in between the gods and demons over Tara. The gods fought on Brihaspati’s side and the demons aided Chandra. Shiva also fought on the side of the gods. As the war raged, Shiva let fly a terrible divine weapon named brahmashirsha at Chandra. Chandra countered this with yet another terrible divine weapon named somastra. These two weapons of destruction threatened to burn up the complete universe. Brahma decided that it was time for him to intervene. Quit this nonsense at when, he told Chandra. What you have done is most improper. Return Tara at after. These words ashamed Chandra and he returned Tara. But Chandra and Tara had already had a handsome son named Budha. Budha became extremely skilled in the handling of elephants. In fact, the understanding of tackling and handling elephants goes back to Budha. You currently know that Budha married Ila and that they had a son named Pururava. Pururava and Urvashi Pururava was a quite robust king who ruled the earth well. He performed 1 hundred ashvamedha yajnas.
Critic Objection : How can Moon God Chandra marry 27 Star, Due to the fact Sun is a star, So the size of extremely huge examine to moon. It is Illogical.
