Hindu Mytho Meme [1/8:Events]
Draupadi’s father Drupad wanted to obtain a son who would slay his enemy, the famous guru Drona. But he knew that such a son could only be obtained via the gods, therefore he begged Rishi Yaj and Upyaj to perform a yajya (sacrifical ritual) from which he could get the son he desired so badly.
Drupad was astounded therefore, when shortly after the appearance of his son,Dhrishtaduymna, the yajya fire began to flare once again, higher and more powerfully than before. Thunder boomed and lightening clapped in the sky, and suddenly the most beautiful woman walked through the flames, as though she was one with the fire. She had eyes like lotus petals, hair like the waves of the ocean and a lotus fragrance to delude even the most fierce ascetic.
The rishis proclaimed,”Her name is Krishnaa, for her dusky complexion.”
"She’ll be known as Yajyaseni, as she was born out of the yajyakund.”
"And you Drupad…you will be remembered for ever more, as her name will be Draupadi, daughter of Drupad.”
The people of your land will love her so much,they will name her Panchaali, princess of Panchaal.
And Drupad thought with a smile…
“A son to bring me the head of Drona, and a daughter whose hand I can give to Arjuna in marriage, ensuring that he will fight with and not against me.”
The descendants of Kashyap, Yaj and Upyaj cried,
"Here is your daughter Drupad, more precious than anything you hold. She is destined to bring righteousness back to this land."
Hearing this, Draupadi’s heart trembled, but she joined her hands in prayer and whispered,
"Oh Lord, if I have indeed been born to avenge the righteous and help cleanse the Earth of the wicked, then give me all the insults that are sure to come, but also give me the strength to survive them."
