ambaalika

ambaalika mahaabhaarat mein kaasheeraaj ki putri bataai gayi hain.[1] ambaalika ki do badi bahne theen, amba tatha ambika. amba, ambika aur ambaalika ka svayanvar hone wala tha. unke svayanvar mein jaakar akele hi bheeshm ne vahaaain aaye samast raajaaon ko paraast kar diya aur teenon kanyaaon ka haran karke hastinaapur le aaye jahaaain unhonne teenon bahanon ko satyavati ke saamane prastut kiya taaki unka vivaah hastinaapur ke raaja aur satyavati ke putr vichitraveerya ke saath sampann ho jaaye. ambika aur ambaalika vichitraveerya ki patniyaaain bani.[2] lekin vichitraveerya ki akaal mrutyu ke kaaran vah donon ni:santaan rah gayeen. bheeshm ne pehle hi brahmacharya vrat ki shapath le rakhi thi aur ab donon putron, chitraangad tatha vichitraveerya ki akaal mrutyu ke kaaran kuruvansh ka vansh khatre mein tha. aise mein satyavati ne apne sabse bade putr ved vyaas ko yaad kiya aur niyog ki vidhi se ambika aur ambaalika ka garbhaadhaan karavaaya.
satyavati ne ambaalika ko nirdesh diya ki vah ambika ki tarah apni aaainkhein band na kare. jab ved vyaas ambaalika ke sammukh prastut huye to ambaalika lajja ke kaaran peeli pad gayi aur isi kaaran jab usaki kokh se paandu ka janm hua to vah janm se hi peeliya rog se grast tha.[3]
