According to the Atharva Veda, the poplar tree is said to be the paradise of the gods. On Saturdays, the Homis inhabit this tree along with Lord Vishnu and his consort Lakshmi.
Therefore, there is a religious belief that if water is anointed on this tree on Saturday, God will be pleased and wealth will be gained. In Vedic times, the branches of the poplar tree were used as firewood, as described in an ancient Purana incident.
While the demons were defeating the gods, Lord Vishnu hid in a poplar tree and stayed there for some time, which is why it is of great importance to the followers of Hinduism.
Similarly, according to some mythology, the poplar tree is called the house of God. The root of this peepal represents Brahma, the jiu represents Vishnu and the leaf represents Shiva.
– Arjuna’s grandson who was about to be killed was brought to life by Lord Krishna, such is the bizarre story of Mahabharata
Lord Krishna had preached the Gita to Arjuna during the Mahabharata war. Arjuna was the son of Indra but was called Panduputra. His mother was Kunti. Kunti was the aunt of Lord Krishna.
Arjuna had four wives, Draupadi, Subhadra, Ulupi and Chitrangada. Srutakarma was born from Draupadi, Abhimanyu from Subhadra, Iravat from Ulupi and Vabhruvahan from Chitrangada. Abhimanyu was married to Maharaja Virat’s daughter Uttara.
Abhimanyu had attained Veeragati in the Mahabharata war. Uttara was pregnant during the Mahabharata war. Abhimanyu’s son was growing in her womb.
Dronacharya’s son Ashvatthama had attacked Brahmastra to destroy the Pandava dynasty. When the infant in the womb of Uttara died due to Brahmastra, Lord Krishna kept the Sudarshan Chakra in the womb, blocked the Brahmastra and kept the child alive.
The same boy later became known as Parikshit. Lord Krishna also kept the head alive by sprinkling the nectar of Bhim’s grandson, Ghatotkach’s son Barbarik. The same head had witnessed the battle of Mahabharata.
