FILE INFO
Caption'Hearing that his father [King Pariksit] had been fatally bitten by the snake-bird [Takshaka], Maharaj Janamejaya became extremely angry and had brahmanas perform a mighty sacrifice in which he offered all the snakes in the world into the sacrificial fire. When Takshaka saw even the most powerful serpents being burned in the blazing fire of that snake sacrifice, he was overwhelmed with fear and approached Lord Indra for shelter. When King Janamejaya did not see Takshaka entering his sacrificial fire, he said to the brahmanas: "Why is not Takshaka, the lowest of all serpents, burning in this fire?" The brahmanas replied: "O best of kings, the snake Takshaka has not fallen into the fire because he is being protected by Indra, whom he has approached for shelter. Indra is holding him back from the fire."'
-Srimad Bhagavatam 12.6.16-19
