Ambarisha | Ikshvaku King, Son of Madhata

Ambarisha was an Ikshvaku king and the son of Mandhata. He lived in Treta Yuga. He was a great devotee of Vishnu and through his great bhakti, lord Vishnu had offered him with Sudarshana Chakra.

Once, Ambarisha performed the Ekadashi Vrata, and at the time of completion of Ekadashi, Sage Durvasa visited his place, and agreed to be his guest, and also accepted to take food with him, and he went for bathing in the river and returned after a long time. Meanwhile the king broke the fast on account of offering food to the guests.

After, a long time Sage Durvasa returned, and he came to know that Amabrisha had taken food without his presence, and got angry and created a demon to kill him. But, since, he is being protected by the Sudharshana Chakra, Lord Narayana’s Sudarshana intervened, and it tried to kill Rishi Durvasa himself. Durvasa approached Ambarisha, and asked him to save from the Sudarsana Chakra, and the mighty king also saved the sage from the Sudarshana Chakra.

Let us worship the great king and be blessed.
