INTRODUCTION TO BHRIGU SAMHITA (From: Sri-Bhrigu-Samhita-Mahashastram) Edited by Finn Wandahl, Denmark Many thousands of years ago the Lord of the universe and God of the = three Lokas, Lord Sri Vishnu Narayana was having a sleep on the bed of = the Cobra. The Goddess Lakshmi was respectfully nursing his feet. At the very same time the Maharishi Bhrigu presented himself to the = Vaykunth Loka at the entrance. Two Door-keepers was standing at the entrance to the Vaykunth Loka. = They were named Jai and Vijay. First of all they welcomed Bhrigu Rishi, = and after that they asked him not to enter at the moment to Lord Sri = Vishnu, since he was sleeping. Not being allowed entrance to Lord Sri Vishnu Narayana the Maharishi = Bhrigu got very angry and said to Jai and Vijay: "By stopping the = Maharishi Bhrigu you have insulted the most great brahmin soul. Due to = that you can get a curse, which will force you to be reborn on the Earth = at least three times." When listening to this threat from Maharishi Bhrigu, Jai and Vijay both = bended down their heads and were very silent. Now the Bhrigu Rishi could = enter the door, without anybody stopping him anylonger. The Maharishi Bhrigu then entered the place where Lord Sri Vishnu = Narayana was sleeping with Goddess Lakshmi at his feet. When Bhrigu = Rishi saw this, he became full of anger, because he thought that Lord = Vishnu was not really sleeping, but only pretending to sleep just to = insult him. This was the time, when the Maharishi Bhrigu with his right leg kicked = the chest of Lord Sri Vishnu. When he was hit Lord Vishnu opened his = eyes and went up. Lord Vishnu was just astonished to see the Bhrigu Rishi standing there. = So he bended down his head with folded hands, and said to Bhrigu Rishi: = "My Lord, my chest is the strongest thing in the world, like a mountain, = but your feet are so soft. Maybe you got hurt while kicking me. So = please forgive me for that." While listening to the words of Lord Vishnu, the Bhrigu rishi got very = calm and felt very guilty, and he asked the God please to forgive him.=20 As all this happened, Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth, got very angry, = and she said to Maharishi Bhrigu: "By behaving this badly towards my = husband, you have insulted me. Therefor I now give a curse, so that you = and all your fellow Brahmins will always live in poverty begging for = your living. I will never come to your home." After listening to this the Bhrigu Rishi said: "Poverty Lakshmi! = Whatever crime I did was in anger, and I have already asked the Lord Sri = Vishnu to forgive me. By not thinking very nicely, you have now given = this curse to me and my fellow Brahmins. But anyway what has happened = has happened. I will now write a Jyotish Grantha, from which the = Brahmins can predict all about the past, present and future of every = person in the world. They will get good knowledge as well as good = earnings from this. They will be able to earn their livelihood. And this = way you have got to come to their home anyhow!" Having said this Maharishi Bhrigu went back to his ashram, and wrote = his book known as "Bhrigu Samhita" which contains the life-stories of = the past, present and future of all the people in the world on the basis = of their Janma-kundalies. First of all Bhrigu Rishi taught the principles of this Grantha to his = own son and disciple Shukra. By Shukra it was little by little = distributed to the Brahmins all over the world.=20 On the basis of this the Brahmins have predicted about the past, = present and future, and made a living from that. This is all the story = about the Bhrigu Samhita.=20 Shubham
