Do You Know?

1.Why Samudra Manthana happened?

Vishnu Purana describes that sage Durvasa in his state of frenzy

threw the garland at Indra, who caught it and placed it on his

elephant Iravata. The elephant was irritated by the fragrance

of the nectar in the flowers.So it threw the garland to the ground

with its trunk. Irritated sage Durvasa cursed Indra and the gods

to lose their powers which is what necessitated the famous

churning of the ocean of milk to obtain Amrita.

2.According  to Vishnu Purana, goddess Lakshmi is the daughter

of  Bhrigu and Khyati. She resided in Swarga with other Goddesses.

Sage Durvasa  cursed her and forced her to leave Swarga and

settle in Kshirasagar. She rose up during the churning of the ocean

of milk–Samudra Manthan between the Devas and Asuras.
