Lord Shri Narnarayan Dev was seated in an assembly of Rushis in
Badrikashram. After travelling around the Bharat, saints arrived
there. They described to the Lord things about cruelty, violence,
and wicked behaviour that had spread in the people of the Bharat.
The saints also told the Lord that all people had left their religious
Hearing this, everyone had tears in their eyes. Lord Narnarayan
consoled them and said, "Do not cry. I will destroy all wicked actions
and establish good religion (Saddharm). There will be a victory
of the good and there will be Dharma everywhere."
The Lord was explaining the importance of religion and everyone
was fully engrossed on hearing his speech. Meanwhile, Durvasa Muni
arrived there from Kailash, with the desire to see God. He stood
behind them with the hope of a warm welcome, but no one knew he
was there. Durvasa Muni felt insulted. He got angry and gave a curse
to everyone. "You all will be born as humans in Bharat, suffering
from asurs (wicked men) because you have insulted me."
Hearing this, everyone became very said. Dharma Dev stood yp and
bowed down to Durvasa Muni. The other saints also did the same.
Dharma Dev asked for forgiveness. Durvasa felt sorry and pity. Then
he said, "My curse will not be in vain, but Lord Narnarayan will
be born in Dharma Dev's house and will protect you from woes." Then
Durvasa Muni went back to his abode and Lord Narnarayan announced,
"This happened by my own desire."
