ambika mahaabhaarat mein kaasheeraaj ki putri bataai gayi hain.[1] ambika ki do aur bahne theen, badi bahan amba tatha chhoti bahan ambaalika. 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.
jab ved vyaas ambika ke saamane prastut huye to usane lajja ke kaaran apne netr band kar liye. isi kaaran se usaka putr dhrutaraashtr andha paida hua.
jab dobaara satyavati ne ved vyaas ko ambika ke paas bheja to ambika ne apni daasi unke sammukh kar di aur is kaaran se vidur ka janm hua jo dhrutaraashtr aur paandu ka bhaai kahalaaya.
