Story of Mandhata
Mandhata was the king of the Sun dynasty. Ramachandra himself was later born during this Surya dynasty. So it is often said that Mandhata was the predecessor of Rama. King Yuvanashvara of the Sun dynasty had no sons. Hoping to possess a son, he visited the ashram of the saints within the forest and began austerities. Satisfied together with his pursuit, the sages started sacrificing for the son of Yubanash. After the Yajna was over, they left a jug of Mantraput water. Drinking this water will give birth to the son of the queen of youth. But the young horse didn’t know all this.
He drank water from that jug because he was thirsty in the dark. the subsequent morning the sages wondered where the water within the jug had gone. Then Yuvanashva said that he drank the water from the jug. After telling him everything, the sages said that he would have a son within the womb of the young horse because he drank Mantraput water. 100 years later, Mandhata was born by tearing the left side of the young horse’s stomach.
But since no mother is born within the womb, there’s a drag with who will get older with milk. Then Devraj Indra came forward to save lots of this child. Putting his own index in Mandhata’s face, he said, ‘Mam dhasyati’. meaning drink me. From there the son is known as Mam-Dhata or Mandhata. That finger of Indra was nectar. Mandhata grew up at some point thanks to nectar. He became quite proficient in studies and armaments. After the death of Yuvanash, he became a king and purchased a reputation as an honest ruler. it’s said that Mandhata also fought with Ravana.
