Devahuti Under Water

Working sanely and diligently, Devahuti served her very powerful husband, sage Kardama Muni, giving up all lust, pride, envy, greed, sinful activities and vanity. By following the strict vows of a chaste woman and after serving her husband for a long time, Princess Devahuti became very skinny, and therefore her husband became compassionate. He knew that she was the daughter of a great king and yet was serving him just like an ordinary woman.

Kardama Muni exercised his yogic power and instantly produced an aerial mansion that could travel at his will. When he saw Devahuti looking at the gigantic, opulent palace with a displeased heart, Kardama Muni could understand her feelings because he could study the heart of anyone. Thus he personally addressed his wife as follows. My dear Devahuti, first bathe in Lake Bindu-sarovara, created by Lord Visnu Himself, which can grant all the desires of a human being, and then mount this airplane.”

The lotus-eyed Devahuti accepted the order of her husband. Because of her dirty dress and the locks of matted hair on her head, she did not look very attractive. Her body was coated with a thick layer of dirt. She dove, however, into the lake.

In a house inside the lake she saw one thousand girls, all in the prime of youth and fragrant like lotuses. Seeing her, the damsels suddenly rose and said with folded hands, “We are your maidservants. Tell us what we can do for you.”

The girls brought Devahuti forth, and after bathing her with valuable oils and ointments, they gave her fine, new, spotless cloth to cover her body. They then decorated her with very valuable jewels. Next they offered her food containing all good qualities, and a sweet, inebriating drink. Then in a mirror she beheld her own reflection. Her body was completely freed from all dirt, and she was adorned with a garland. Dressed in unsullied robes and decorated with auspicious marks of tilaka, she was served very respectfully by the maids.

She and her husband then mounted that airplane and begot children for the righteous propagation of the universe.
