Mr Ashish Kumar
(It is difficult to comment about young author Mr Ashish Kumar and his mythological/spiritual writing. He has well researched Hindu Philosophy, Science and quest of success beyond the material realms. I am really mesmerized. I am sure you will be also amazed. We are pleased to begin a series on excerpts from his well acclaimed book “Samudramanthanam” . According to Mr Ashish “Samudramanthanam is less explained and explored till date. I have tried to give broad way of this one of the most important chapter of Hindu mythology. I have read many scriptures and take references from many temples and folk stories, to present the all possible aspects of portrait of Samudramanthanam.” Now our distinguished readers will be able to read this series on every Saturday.)

As ‘Kamadhenu’ first glimpse is visible to outer world people. All Sura, Asura, sages even Lord Brahma feel that they are fed with sweet milk and felt very satisfied. Even Suras who lost their consciousness, wake up and say to Indira “O! king what a taste of milk which we have drunk. Now we are feeling very energetic and can-do churning for many Yugas”
Lord Brahma said, “O! mother All the gods are residing in your body. Your four legs are the four Vedas; your horns are the triune gods Brahma, me (tip), Vishnu (middle) and Shiva (base); your eyes are the sun and moon gods, your shoulders the fire-god Agni and the wind-god Vayu and your legs the Himalayas. I request you mother that you will keep feeding your children as you have done right now. Currently, hunger of Sura is end but Saptarishis and others are preparing to do a great yajna to complete this churning of ocean ‘Kshirasāgara’ without any restriction. So please help them to provide pure milk to make ghee for yajna. Even from today onwards you will remain with Saptarishis, because they and other sage always keep doing yajnas for which your milk will work as ‘amrita’. The people who will do your protection will be called Gaurkha or Gorakshak and a place where sage will keep you called Gokula. Today will be celebrated as day of cow called ‘Gao Dwadasi’. You will also be called Surbahi – the smell of earth.
Now Sura and Asura started churning again.
