About INDRA KASHYAP

Indra, in Hindu mythology, the king of the gods. He is one of the main gods of the archaic Sanskrit collection of hymns, the Rigveda, and is the Indo-European cousin of the German Wotan, Norse Odin, Greek Zeus, and Roman Jupiter.

In early religious texts Indra plays a variety of roles. As king, he leads cattle raids against the dasas or dasyus, native inhabitants of the lands over which his people range. He brings rain as god of the thunderbolt, and he is the great warrior who conquers the antigods (asuras). He also defeats innumerable human and superhuman enemies, most famously Vritra, a dragon and a leader of the dasa. Vritra is accused in his dragon form of holding back the waters and the rains, as a dasa of stealing cows, and as an antigod of hiding the Sun. Indra is strengthened for these feats by drinks of the elixir of immortality, the soma, which priests offer to him in the sacrifice. Among his allies are the Rudras (or Maruts), who ride the clouds and direct storms. Indra is sometimes referred to as “the thousand-eyed.”

In later Hinduism, Indra is no longer worshipped but plays the important mythological roles of god of rain, regent of the heavens, and guardian of the east. Later texts note this break in the worship of Indra. In the Mahabharata, the great Sanskrit epic, Indra fathers the great hero Arjuna and tries in vain to prevent the god of fire, Agni, from burning a great forest. In the Puranas, ancient collections of Hindu myths and legends, Krishna, the great god and avatar of Vishnu, persuades the cowherders of Gokula (or Vraja, modern Gokul) to stop their worship of Indra. Enraged, Indra sends down torrents of rain, but Krishna lifts Mount Govardhana on his fingertip and gives the people shelter under it for seven days until Indra relents and pays him homage.

Therefore should one, in keeping to one's duties performing effortlessly, exercise respect for the karma of one's own nature [see varnâs'rama]; by that karma one lives, it is that karma no doubt that is someone's worship able deity.
Let's therefore make a start with a sacrifice for the cows, the brahmins and the hill [Govardhana], and may this be carried out with the ingredients for Indra's sacrifice! [see also footnote 10.8*3]
'Indra then who realized that the worship of his person had been rejected, 'u o King, got angry with the gopas lead by Nanda who had taken to Krishna as their Lord.
Seeing the result of Krishna's mystic power was Lord Indra most amazed and stopped he the clouds, broken in his determination and with his false pride brought down.

Khandava Forest (Sanskrit: खाण्डव वन, khāndəvə vənə) was an ancient forest mentioned in the epic Mahabharata.[1] It lay to the west of Yamuna river, in modern day Delhi territory. Pandavascleared this forest to construct their capital city calledIndraprastha. This forest was earlier inhabited by Naga tribes led by a king named Takshaka.[2] Arjuna and Vasudeva Krishna cleared this forest by setting up a fire. The inhabitants of this forest were displaced. This was the root cause of the enmity of the Naga Takshaka towards the Kuru kings who ruled from Indraprastha andHastinapura.[2]
The Mahabharata states that Indra was the protecting deity (deva) of Khandava forest, which is why the region was known as Indraprastha.[3] When the forest was being burned, Indra attacked Arjun with his bolt (vajra), injuring him.[4]
A little known story is that at the time of the great war when Arjun and Karna come face to face with each other, the Naga King Aswasena desirous of avenging the death of his mother from Arjuna, in that battle quietly slips into the quiver of Karna in the guise of an Arrow. It is this Arrow that had almost killed Arjuna had it not been for Krishna who by pressing his feet on the chariot sank it one cubit deep into the earth hence the arrow missing its aim.
Indraprastha
The capital of the Pandavas. This was situated around current Delhi.
As per Dhritarashtra’s request, Yudhishtira left for the Khandava forest with the other Pandavas. Krishna and sages like Vyasa helped them, and there Yudhishtira built Indraprastha, which was as impressive as devaloka, as per Mahabharata Sabhaparva Chapter 211.
Once Agni razed Khandava but Arjuna saved Maya and five others who were living there. When Maya wanted to repay Arjuna, the latter said it was not proper to take anything for saving a life and if Maya was insistent, he could ask Krishna what he wanted. Krishna thought for a while and then asked Maya to build a palace for Yudhishtira, which would be better than any ever built. After feeding brahmins, Maya drew a boundary of 10000 muzham (1 muzham is a forearm, therefore roughly over 1 foot) and then left for Mainaka, to the north of Kailash. There, in Bindusaras, were jewels that Maya had stored when the asuras had done a yajna. He took those, and a conch named Devadatta and came back to build a palace. This palace was Indraprastha. It had ponds and gardens, and it was built in fourteen months, as per Mahabharata Sabhaparva Chapters 1-3.
After the Pandavas, the Yadava Anirudha was made king of Indraprastha, as per Mahabharata Mausalaparva Chapter 7 verse 11.
