AJĀMILA(अजामिल)

  • Ajāmila's story is given in the [Bhāgavata] as an example to illustrate that even the most wicked person can attain Viṣṇupāda (Salvation). Ajāmila was a Brahmin who was once sent by his father to the jungle to fetch samit (leaves and twigs to make the sacrificial fire). Ajāmila met there a beautiful Śūdra woman. Forgetting everything, the Brahmin made her his wife and children were born to them. When that Brahmin, who was the very embodiment of all vices, reached the age of eightyseven, the time came for him to die. Yamadūtas (Agents of Yama--the god of death) had arrived. The frightened Ajāmila shouted loudly the name of his eldest son, ‘Nārāyaṇa’. Hearing the repeated call of his name ‘Nārāyaṇa’, Mahāviṣṇu appeared there and dismissed the agents of Yama. From that day Ajāmila became a devotee of Viṣṇu and did penance on the bank of the Ganges and after some years attained salvation. [Bhāgavata, Aṣṭama Skandha, Chapter 1].
