- History of Marichyasana-:
Marichi was the son of Brahma, who is known as the creator of this universe, after he created this earth, Brahma conceived and created his seven sons, of whom Marichi was one of those seven sons. Were. Was. Marichi ji was the grandfather of Surya Dev ji, Sun God who is the giver of life, whose Surya Namaskar we all try like – Adho and Urdhva Mukha Svanasana. Marichi literally means the rays of the moon and the sun.
Marichi went to the forest one day to collect wood and flowers and returned home when he was tired. He called his wife Dharmavrat and asked her to wash his feet, as soon as Dharmavrat started washing her husband’s feet, Marichi’s father Brahma came there, Dharmavrata did not know what to do. Wash Marichi’s feet or meditate on Marichi’s father Brahma. But Dharmavrat attention turned to Brahma and she had to face the wrath of her husband. Marichi got very angry and cursed Dharmavrat to turn into stone.
Dharmavrata was naturally upset that he was being unnecessarily punished. As a response, Dharmavrata began meditating for several years, which was noticed by Lord Vishnu, who, impressed by his devotion, granted him a wish. All the gods wanted Dharmavrat to be freed from the curse, but Marichi ji was a very powerful sage and it was impossible to free Dharmavrat from the curse. So, with the permission and wish of all the Gods and Goddesses, the Dharmavrat was converted into a holy stone.
In this reading of the story, Marichi was not a particularly likable character, but he was a great sage as well as the grandfather of the sun god, and his status as an anthropomorphic figure made him an undeniable figure in Indian mythology. formally made a prominent figure.
This asana is dedicated to the sage Marichi, Son of the Creator Brahma. He is the grandfather of the Son of God.
