Jarasandha

According to the Hindu epic Mahabharata, Jarasandha was a powerful king of Magadha. He was a descendant of the creator of the Barhadratha dynasty of Magadha, he was a great senapati. He was known as Magadha Samrat Jarasandh, he is worshipped as mool-purusha of Chandravanshi Kshatriya. According to Vayu Purana, the descendants of Brihadratha ruled Magadha for 2600 years followed by Haryanka dynasty; the word Jarasandha is a combination of two Sanskrit words and sandha, "joining". Jara, a Van-durga put the two halves of Jarasandha together after finding them by a tree. In return for saving Brihadratha's son, he was named Jarasandha after her; the meaning of Jarasandha is'the one, joined by Jara'. Jarasandha's father king Brihadratha was married to the twin daughters of the King of Kashi. Brihadratha loved both his wives but had no sons. Once sage Chandakaushika gave a mango to the king as a boon; the king divided the mango and gave to both of his wives. Soon, both wives gave birth to two halves of a human body.

These two lifeless halves were horrifying to view. So, Brihadratha ordered these to be thrown in the forest. A van-durga named Jara held each of them in her two palms. Incidentally, when she brought both of her palms together, the two pieces joined giving rise to a living child; the child cried loudly. Not having the heart to eat a living child, the demoness gave it to the king and explained to him all that had happened; the father was overjoyed to see him. Chandakaushika saved the child, he prophesied to Brihadratha that his son would be specially gifted and would be a great devotee of the god Shiva. Kansa, the tyrannical ruler of Mathura, acquired Jarasandha's attention. Impressed with his bravery, Jarasandha made Kansa his son-in-law by marrying off his two daughters. Lord Krishna killed Kansa as announced by a divine prophecy. Jarasandh got infuriated. Thereafter, Jarasandha vowed to kill Krishna. Jarasandha was a major hurdle before emperor Yudhishthira when the latter decided to perform the Rajasuya yagna.

As Jarasandha was an invincible warrior, it was necessary for Pandavas to eliminate him. Lord Krishna and Arjuna disguised as Brahmins travelled to Magadha and met Jarasandha. After a formal meeting, Jarasandha enquired about their intentions. Krishna and Arjuna revealed their actual identification. Lord Krishna challenged Jarasandha for duel and gave him freedom to choose any one belligerent. Jarasandha was a true warrior. Hence, he selected Bhima for duel. Both Bhima and Jarasandha were accomplished wrestlers; the duel continued for several days and neither of them was willing to give up. Bhima turned towards Krishna for guidance. Krishna dissected it into two halves and threw the parts in opposite directions. Bhima dissected the body of Jarasandha, he threw the dissected parts in opposite directions. Jarasandha was killed. Jarasandha's son Sahadeva, was placed on throne of Magadha and he agreed to be a vassal to the Pandavas, he was killed in the Kurukshetra war. 4. Chandravanshi Kshatriya, Rajput Vansha Gibbs,Laura.
