Was it wrong for Surpanakha to desire Rama as her beloved? – Swami Mukundananda

Surpanakha expressed her love for Lord Rama, did she get her desire fulfilled during Krishnavatar?

Surpanakha was youngest child of Maharshi Vishrava and Kaikashi. Surpanakha was younger sister of Ravana, Kumbhkarna and Vibhishana.

It is also interesting to note that in ‘Brahmavaivarta Purana’ it was written that Surpanakha prayed to Lord Brahma in order to get Lord Ram as her husband in her next birth to which Brahma obliged.

She was reborn as the maiden Kubja who served Krishna (the Avatar of Rama or Vishnu) with sincere devotion as one of his wives. She was bent from her back but when Sri Krishna was of age 11 years and 52 days he blessed her and made her a very beautiful woman.

Sri Rama is 7th incarnation of God Maha Vishnu.
Sri Krishna is 8th incarnation of God Maha Vishnu.
So, Sri Krishna is the next birth of Sri Rama.

  1. We ate unable to understand the lilas of the Lord.His grace comes when we are eligible for that.So when Surpanakha qualified for the Lord's grace ,she came as Kubja in Dwapar yuga and was graced by Lord Krishna.Beautiful explanation,Swamiji.Thank You for all your grace and blessings.Radhey Radhey!

  2. What a beautiful story of how Surpanakha (Ravana's sister in Treta Yug) was reincarnated in Dwapar Yug as Kubja! Lord Krishna's grace turned her from a hunch-backed woman to one with an exceptionally beautiful form.
