FILE INFO
CaptionKing Yayati could not refuse Sarmistha who had approached him to give her a son. Although he remembered being warned by Sukracharya not to engage in relations with Sarmistha, he thought it wise to give her a son, thinking it was his duty as a kshatriya. When King Yayati's wife Devayani understood that Sarmistha was pregnant by her husband, she was frenzied with anger. Sukracharya was extremely angry and he said, "You untruthful fool, lusting after women! You have done a great wrong. I therefore curse you to be attacked and disfigured by old age and invalidity."
-Srimad Bhagavatam 9.18
