RAIBHYA I(रैभ्य)

  • A hermit who was famous in the Palace of Yudhiṣṭhira. Information about this hermit, found in the Mahābhārata is given below:
    (1) Raibhya who was a friend of Bharadvāja had two sons named Arvāvasu and Parāvasu. They were great scholars. [M.B. Vana Parva, Chapter 135, Stanza 12].
    (2) Bharadvāja once forbade his son Yavakrīta from going to the hermitage of Raibhya. Getting angry at this, Raibhya struck his matted hair on the ground and created a wicked fairy and ordered her to kill Yavakrīta. Knowing this Bharadvāja ran to that place and cursed Raibhya that his eldest son would kill him. Once Parāvasu, mistaking his father for a cruel animal killed him. By the effort of his second son Arvāvasu, Raibhya was brought to life again. [M.B. Vana Parva, Chapter 138, Stanza 137].
    (3) Raibhya was the son of Aṅgiras. [M.B. Śānti Parva, Chapter 208, Stanza 26].
    (4) Raibhya was once an assistant at the sacrifice of Uparicaravasu. [M.B. Anuśāsana Parva, Chapter 33, Stanza 7].
    (5) Raibhya was one of the hermits who visited Bhīṣma in his bed of arrows. [M.B. Anuśāsana Parva, Chapter 26, Stanza 26].
