Chandra, Tara, Brihaspati and The Birth Of Budh
Brihaspati is known as the Guru of all the Devas. Because of this position, he was always busy with the Devas, solving their problems and advising them on crucial matters. As Brihaspati was always surrounded by the Devas, his wife, Tara, felt neglected and ignored by him. One day Chandra, the Moon God, came to visit Brihaspati in order to seek his advice on matters of some crucial aspects. However, during his visit, he saw Tara, and soon he laid his eyes on her. Chandra was mesmerised by her beauty and thought to himself that why is this woman with somelike old like Brihaspati and not Chandra? So he decided to get Tara by hook or by crook. In order to get Tara, Chandra put a spell on her and also tried to hypnotise her. The hypnotism worked, and Tara was summoned by Chandra. Chandra further planned to run away and elope with Tara. as Tara was already under his influence because of the spell, she eloped with Chandra.
When Brihaspati came to know about this, he was very upset as well as angry with Chandra. Brihaspati further proceeded to visit Chandra and asked him to return Tara back. However, Chandra was arrogant and denied Brihaspati’s request. Both the Devas got into an argument, and it turned so bad that they were about to go on for war. In the war, the devas supported Brihaspati, and the Asuras supported Chandra. However, Lord Brahma got to know about this and immediately visited Chandra in order to stop the war. He asked Chandra to return Tara back to Brihaspati. Chandra could not undermine Brahma Dev’s authority which means he returned Tara back to Brihaspati. However, by that time, Tara was already pregnant with Chandra’s child. Brihaspati, on noticing this, asked Tara who the father was, and she told him that it was Chandra. Brihaspati was so angry that he refused to accept the child. The child was born and later came to be known as Budh. In later times, Brihaspati admired Budh’s intelligence and wit and then further proceeded to adopt him. Budh saw Brihaspati as his father and had feelings of disgust and hatred towards Chandra.
