Symbol of Protection


Short Mythology :

Indra, king of the gods, used his vajra and deep intense side to defeat the dragon Vrittarsur as he had earlier lost his Kingdom by disrespecting Brihaspati.

This Nakshatra relates to Indra, who seduced the wife of the sage when he was not in his home. The sage then cursed Indra.

Indra was once angry with the Krishna villagers that he didn't make any ritual sacrifices for him and he sent some heavy rains and flooding. Krishna protected the villagers by lifting Mount Govardhan and providing them the secret and hence it has the symbol of the umbrella.

Indra was the most cursed diety of all the deities. So Jyestha natives should try to respect women and have self-discipline.
