Mythology: Savitri


The story of Savitri and Satyavan appears in the Mahabharta. It is on of the many stories told by the sage Markandeya to the Pandavas during their exile. Yudhishthira, the eldest Pandava is depressed by having to witness the trials and tribulations of their common wife Draupadi, whose devotion to her husbands only brought her suffering. Markandeya tells him that regardless of what they may have to suffer, chaste and devoted wives will ultimately bring triumph to their loves ones and themselves.

Draupadiís goodness would ultimately deliver them from their misfortunes, just as the chaste Savitriís staunch devotion to her husband Satyavan brought good fortune, not only to her parents and her husbandís parents, but also to her own self. For it was her intense devotion that gave her the strength to influence the God of Death, Yama, to release Satyavan from his clutches.
