|Caption||Once when Durvasa was a guest at the house of Kunti's father, Kunti rendered service to him and he was very much satisfied. Therefore he gave Kunti a mystic power by which she could call any demigod. To test the potency of this power, the pious Kunti called for the sun-god. The sun-god immediately appeared before her and she was very surprised. She said to him,"I was simply examining the effectiveness of this mystic power. I am sorry I have called you unnecessarily. Please return and excuse me." The sun-god said: "O beautiful Prtha (another name of Kunti), your meeting with the demigods cannot be fruitless. Therefore please let me place my seed in your womb so that you may bear a son. I shall arrange to keep your virginity intact, since you are still an unmarried girl."|
