SUVARCAS IX(सुवर्चस्)

  • Wife of sage Dadhīci. At the request of Indra, the maharṣi sacrificed himself so that the former might use his bones. Suvarcas who hated the Devas especially Indra as the cause of her husband's death cursed Indra that he and his dynasty be ruined. She decided to end her life in the pyre of her husband when the following celestial voice was heard: “You are pregnant.” Then she opened her stomach with a sharp stone, took out the foetus and placed it near a Banyan tree and ended her life in her husband's pyre. [Padma Purāṇa, Uttara Khaṇḍa, 135]; Śivaśataka, 24-25. The child born from the foetus is the famcus Pippalāda. (See under Pirpalāda).
