Mother Of Nakula And Sahadeva


Madri was the mother of Nakula and Sahadeva in Mahabharata. She was the princess of Madra. 

Bhishmacharya got Madri as the second wife for Pandu. Shalya who fought on the Kaurava side during the Kurukshetra war was the brother of Madri.

The Pandavas were born with the power of a mantra Kunti had obtained from Sage Durvasa. With that mantra, she could call any Deva and get blessed with children.

After Kunti gave birth to three children, Pandu told her to get children for Madri as well. Kunti told Madri to meditate upon any Deva while she chanted the mantra. Madri meditated upon Ashwini Kumaras. They incarnated through Madri’s womb as her sons, Nakula and Sahadeva.
