The Legend Behind Chyawanprash
Chyavana Maharshi was son of a sage Bhrugu Maharshi. Once he was lost in meditation and Dhyana (tapas) for many years. Shrubs and climbers grew around him and covered him completely except his eyes. Once the princess of that territory came to woods and saw 2 glittering eyes of chyavana, hidden behind bushes. She mistook them as insects and pricked them with a thorn. Chyavana became blind and in rage he cursed the princess and king to suffer from blockage of natural urges. King realized the mistake done by his daughter and asked his daughter to marry Chyavan as a penance to the misdeed. She agreed and married the sage and was loyal to him.
Once Ashwin Kumaras who were royal physicians of Lord Indra happen to see this couple. They prepared a medicine which contained magical herbs and made chyavan to consume that. This medicine is “chyavan prash”, which made old and blind chyavana to a young and well-sighted man.
