DADHEECHI

Introduction

Dadheechi, after acquiring spiritual knowledge, led a pious life. When prayed for by Indra and other gods, Dadheechi readily sacrificed his life as well as body, in order that the gods might win in their war against demons.

Author - N.K.Narasiha Murthy


Dadheechi

"We are in difficulty. We need your backbone if we are to survive. You must make up your mind for this kind of a sacrifice."

"All right. Man has to die one day or the other, hasn't he? It is better to die in order to benefit others. I shall give up this body in a few minutes. You may take my backbone."

How queer this piece of conversation looks! Does it not?

The one who asked for the backbone was Devendra, the king of Heaven. The one who readily said 'Yes' was Dadheechi. We come across this interesting episode in one of our mythological epics.

In many of our mythological stories we have heard about men praying to gods, "0, kindly help us. Who else will protect us except you?"

But in this story it is gods who pray to Dadheechi, a man. 110, kindly help us. Who else will come to our rescue if not you?"

And this great man saves gods. It a very interesting tale.
