Story of the Hindu God Of Love Kamadeva. In the Satyuga, Lord Shiva had burnt Kamdev with the fire of his third eye. When Rati pleaded; he gave a boon that in the Dwapar age, her husband Kamdev will be born as the son of Lord Krishna. When the hindu god of love Kamdev was born in Dwarka to Rukmani and Krishna, the whole country was exhaled with the discussion of his beauty, valour and character. When he was an infant, Shambarasur stole him from his bedroom and threw him in the sea. In the sea, a big fish swallowed him. A fisherman caught this fish and gifted it to Shambarasur. When the cook cut the fish, he saw the infant inside the fish’s body and got frightened and he gave the child to Mayawati, the maidservant working in Shambarasur’s kitchen. Mayawati had formerly been the wife of Kama and had been called Rati .The great sage Narad then appeared and explained to Mayawati about the birth of Pradyumna and revealed to her that Kamdev has taken birth as Pradyumna. Since then, she started loving the child like her husband.

Pradyumna grew up into such a handsome young man that any girl who saw him fell in love with him. Mayawati gradually got captivated to him; she always smiled at him with female attractiveness. She always wanted to be with Pradyumna (Kamdev). At this, Pradyumna once asked her, “You are like my mother, why do you make gestures like a woman with lust in her eyes?” Then Mayawati (Rati) told him the story of their previous life and Lord Shiva’s boon. She also made him aware of the fact that Shambarasur knew many kinds of illusionary arts. After this, Mayawati taught Pradyumna, an art named ‘Mahamaya’ which can destroy other illusionary arts.

Later, Pradyumna challenged Sambarasur. He was very angry and came with a mace in his hand. There was a war between Pradyumna and Sambarasur. As Sambarasur was being defeated he flew off to the sky with his powers of illusion and attacked Pradyumna with arrows and weapons. In order to control him, Pradyumna used his Mahamaya art due to which all his power was destroyed. Subsequently, Sambarasur used many more arts but Pradyumna destroyed them all and with a sharp sword slaughtered his head and separated it from his body.

Vasudev And Devaki Images

Mayawati could travel in air so she carried Pradyumna and directly reached his father Krishna’s capital, Dwarka. They passed above the palace of Lord Krishna and began to come down as a cloud comes down with lightening. All the cowherds and citizens thought him to be Krishna only. Just then Krishna came with Vasudev and Devaki. Pradyumna touched Krishna’s feet and took his blessings. After this, he touched Vasudev’s and Devaki’s feet. The whole of Dwarka was happy and everyone was cheering with dance and music.

 

Pradyumna also married Rukmavati, the daughter of Rukmi, and had by her a son named Aniruddha. Pradyumna had another wife named Prabhavati, daughter of King Vajranabh. When he went to see her for the first time, he changed himself into a bee and lived in a garland of flowers, which had been prepared for her.

 

(Hindu God Of Love Kamdeva ) Pradyumna was later killed in a drunken brawl in Krishna’s court at Dwarka.
