Durvasa Maharishi

Pending cleanup , corrections


In Hindu mythology, Durvasa (दुर्वास in Devanagari or durvāsa in IAST, pronounced [d̪urʋɑːsɐ] in classical Sanskrit), or Durvasas, was an ancient sage, the son of Atri and Anasuya. He is supposed to be an incarnation of Shiva.He is known for his short temper. Hence, wherever he went, he was received with great reverence from humans and Devas alike.

According to local tradition in modern Azamgarh, Durvasa’s Ashram or hermitage, where many disciples used to go to study under him, was situated in the area, at the confluence of the Tons and Majhuee rivers, 6km north of the Phulpur Tehsil headquarters.
