Who Is Satyavati In Mahabharata?

Satyavati and Shantanu

Satyavati is the queen of Kuru-Vamsha king Shantanu. She had two sons - Chitrangada, and Vichitravirya. They both died childless. 

Before her wedding with Shantanu, Satyavati had conceived a divine pregnancy from Sage Parashara. This was Sage Vyasa, an amshavatara of Mahavishnu. Vyasa only authored Mahabharata.

When Kuru-Vamsha came to a crisis of not having a successor, Satyavati asked Vyasa to impregnate the widows of her son Vichitravirya. Thus Ambika gave birth to Dhritarashtra, and Ambalika gave birth to Pandu.

Satyavati’s father was King Vasu of Chedi and her mother an apsara called Adrika who had turned into fish because of a curse. She was brought up by a fishermen chief called Dasharaja.

Satyavati was an incarnation of a divine being called Acchoda who lived in the world of the forefathers.

Are Shiva and Rudra the same?

According to Shiva Purana, Shiva is Parabrahma, the supreme truth. Rudra is that aspect of Shiva who is responsible for the annihilation of the universe at the time of pralaya.

Creation of Death

At the time of creation, Brahama had not imagined that the world would soon overcowd with living beings. When he saw the condition of the world, Brahma got worried and sent Agni to burn everything down. Lord Shiva intervened and suggested a systematic way to keep population under control. That's when Brahma created death and Mrityu Devata to carry it out. Death is a mystery and coping with the death of a near and dear one is a challenge. Knowing that even the gods had to find solutions for overpopulation and death can make death less daunting and more understandable.
