The god of eunuchs has a special connection with Arjuna of Mahabharata, know what is the mythological story?


Epic Story: There are many communities of eunuchs in the world. The arrival of eunuchs on any happy occasion is considered very auspicious. The blessings of eunuchs are considered very special. Whether it is the birth of a child or marriage, if eunuchs come there and give their blessings, it is very auspicious. Some people believe that Lord Shri Ram also blessed the eunuchs that you will rule in Kaliyug. Now there is also an Akhara of eunuchs in India. Its Mahamandaleshwar is Acharya Lakshmi Narayan Tripathi. Eunuchs worship their deity. 

The god of the eunuchs is Iravan. They worship him. It is believed that the eunuchs worship this god. The eunuchs marry their god and mourn his death a day later. The married life of eunuchs ends in just one day. It is believed that thousands of eunuchs gather in Koovagam village of Tamil Nadu, India. Where they get married. Along with this, Iravan is worshipped as Koothandavar in this village of Villupuram district. Thousands of eunuchs become Iravan's bride. The priests of the temple tie Kalava around their necks. 

There is a connection with Arjun of Mahabharata 

Iravan, the god of eunuchs, is the son of Arjuna of Mahabharata. According to mythology, once Arjuna broke the marital rules by seeing Yudhishthira and Draupadi alone. Due to which he had to leave Indraprastha by accepting pilgrimage for one year by his own will. According to the story, once Arjuna was taking bath in Haridwar. At the same time, Nagkanya Ulupi, daughter of Nagraj Kauravya, saw him and became fascinated by him. In such a situation, she pulled him and took him to her Naglok. She requested Arjuna to marry her, so Arjuna had to marry her. 

Arjun spent one night in Naglok. After this, at sunrise, he went above Naglok with Ulupi and reached the banks of Ganga in Haridwar. Ulupi left him and returned to her home. While returning, Ulupi blessed Arjun that he would always be victorious in water. All aquatic creatures would remain under his control. 

Arjun's son 

Arjun and the serpent princess Ulupi had a son from their union, who was named Iravan. This is mentioned in the Bhishma Parva. In the 90th chapter of the Bhishma Parva, Sanjay introduces Iravan to Dhritarashtra and tells that Iravan is the son of Arjun and Ulupi, daughter of the serpent king Kauravya. 

One day the eunuchs get married 

There is a day in the year when Kinnars wear colourful saris and decorate their hair with jasmine flowers and marry Iravan. This marriage lasts only for one day. The next day their married life ends with the death of Iravan Devta. It is believed that Iravan died on this day. 

This story is also popular 

According to a legend, there comes a time in the Mahabharata war when the Pandavas need a prince to voluntarily sacrifice himself at the feet of Maa Kali for victory. When no prince comes forward for this, Arjun's son Iravan offers himself.

Along with this, he also puts a condition that he will not die unmarried. This condition creates a problem because if he marries a woman, she will become a widow the very next day. Seeing this situation, Lord Krishna himself takes the form of Mohini and marries Iravan. After this, Iravan offers his head at the feet of Maa Kali. After Iravan's death, Lord Krishna mourns for some time in the form of Mohini. 

Despite being a man, Lord Krishna marries Iravan by assuming the form of a woman. Due to this, those who are considered men in the form of women also carry forward this tradition and marry their idol god Iravan. At the same time, it is mentioned in the Mahabharata that Iravan died in a war.
