MURA II(मुर)

  • Son of Tālajaṅgha, an asura born of a part of Brahmā. The capital of this valorous Murāsura was in the city of Candravatī. Murāsura who possessed the brilliance of Brahmā was a nightmare to the devas. Once Murāsura fought against Viṣṇu and in the fierce fight that took place Viṣṇu was defeated and he ran away from the battlefield and started sleeping in a cave named Siṁhavatī in the neighbourhood of Badarikāśrama. Mura went there too. Then Mahāviṣṇu created a Devī through his Yogamāyā and made her kill Mura. Pleased at the slaughter of Mura, Viṣṇu blessed her and said “From today onwards you will be known as ‘Ekādaśī’. You will be capable of wiping off all sins on earth.” [Padmapurāṇa, Uttarakhaṇḍa 36. 50-80].
