There were many legends about the origin of the Sage Agastya. The stories say that once the Gods Indra, Vayuand Agni came to the Earth to destroy the demons like Tharagan, who made the people on Earth to suffer. On seeing them, the demons went and hid in the sea. Some legends say that Agastya rishi is the son of the God Agni. Based on the advice of the Lord Indra, the miraculous birth of the Agastya rishi follows a yajna being done by the Gods Varuna and Mitra, where the celestial Apsara, Urvashi appears. They are overwhelmed by her extraordinary sexuality and ejaculate that their semen fell into a mud pitcher, which is the womb in which the fetus of Agastya grows. Some mythologies say that the Sage Agastya was born along with his twin, the Sage Vashishta. The Sage Agastya got the names Kudamuni and Kumbayogi as he was born from the pitcher.
The demons who had previously tormented the people on Earth still continued to torment the Gods and other Sages. The demons hid in the sea when the Lord Indra came to destroy them. Upon the request of the Lord Indra, the Sage Agastya drank all the ocean water and Indra destroyed the monsters. Agastya then released the water back into the sea.
Specalities of the Sage Agastya
Once Lord Shiva ordered the Sage Agastya to go the South. Vindhyamalai / Vindhya Hills which stand in the way to reach the Merumalai / Meru Hills, bowed down when it saw Agastya. Agastya, who had said that the hill should bow down until he returns and as he did not go to the North again, the Vindhya hill did not rise. Agastya who came to the south, stayed on the Bodhi Hill and composed the book “Agathiyam” by the order of Lord Murugan.
Agastya taught the Siva Gita to the Lord Rama, an avatar of the Lord Vishnu. When Agastya went to the Indra Sabha, the Lord Indra made Urvasi dance. Urvasi forgot her identity due to her love for Indra’s son Sayantan. So the Sage Agastya cursed Sayantan and Urvasi to be born on the Earth.
The two monsters named Vilvalavan and Vadhapi, among them Vilvalavan took the form of an archer and invite the Sages who are on their way to dine with them. Then he will cook his brother Vadhapi as food, make them eat and then invite him back. The Sages will die because he tore their stomachs and came out. The sages appealed to the Agastya. The Sage Agastya went to dine with them. The Archer Vilvalavan prepares the food and Agastya, who ate the food ordered Vadhapi who is in Agastya’s stomach to digest. Vadhapi died after Agastya rubbed his stomach and knowing the situation, the archer apologized to Agastya.
