CANDRASENA II(चन्द्रसेन)

  • A king of Ujjayanī and a great devotee of Śiva. As he performed great sacrifices and gave away money and materials in gift to those who prayed for them, an attendant of Śiva called Maṇibhadra once gave him a gem, which possessed supernatural powers. Attracted by the lustre and glare of the gem many kings wanted to purchase it. But Candrasena refused to sell it. Much incensed at the refusal, the enemy kings set out to fight Candrasena, who then took refuge in the Mahākāla temple in Ujjayanī the idol installed in which was Śivaliṅga. Lord Śiva then appeared to him and granted him salvation. [Śiva Purāṇa, Śanipradoṣamāhātmyam].
