Sukadeva in Womb

Sukadeva Gosvami is famous because he spoke Srimad-Bhagavatam, the mature fruit of the desire tree of Vedic literatures, to Pariksit Maharaja, who had been cursed to die in seven days. This Sukadeva Gosvami, the son of Vyasadeva, is described in great detail in the Brahma-vaivarta Purana. There it is said that Vyasadeva maintained the daughter of Jabali as his wife, and that after they performed penances together for many years, he placed his seed in her womb. The child remained in the womb of his mother for twelve years, and when the father asked the son to come out, the son replied that he would not come out unless he were completely liberated from the influence of maya (the illusory energy of the Supreme Lord that makes living entities in this world to forget Him.) Vyasadeva then assured the child that he would not be influenced by maya, but the child did not believe his father.

Vyasadeva then went to Dvaraka and informed the Personality of Godhead about his problem, and the Personality of Godhead, at Vyasadeva’s request, went to Vyasadeva’s cottage where He assured the child in the womb that he would not be influenced by maya. Thus assured, the child came out.
