Vedas, Ramayana, Mahabharata have mentioned the instances of birth of babies in an unusual manner. It is not how Dhritarashtra, Pandu, Duryodhana, Arjun or any other mythological character in Hinduism were born, it’s about how Kripacharya, Kripi, or Sukadeva born. Science might not be able to explain about these births as these are too unnatural for people who think rationally. Rishi Aurva is one such example whose birth is beyond explanation, rather it is miraculous in the true sense of the term.

In Hindu Mythology, several meanings are attached to Rishi Aurva. Lets find out!

  • Aurva is who has taken birth from Urvi (Earth)
  • The descendent of Rishi Urva
  • The child took birth from Uru (thigh)
  • The fire of wrath or anger

Aurva was a Vedic Rishi whose reference is also there in Puran as a descendant of Rishi Bhrigu. He was the son of Arushi and Chavan. Chavan was the son of Rishi Bhrigu and Puloma. According to Mahabharata, he was affected by some incurable diseases and looked ghoulish. After the Ashwini Kumaras (Twins Gods in Hindu mythology who were extremely good-looking) mantra, he got relief from the disease and became extremely handsome. In the name of Chavan, the preparation is called Chavanprash. Since then, people are taking Chavanprash for their health.

Son of Rishi Chyavan, Aurva’s birth was an unnatural one. Devi Aarushi was frightened of rogue Kshatriyas who were the descendant of Kritavirya. To save her child from the evils she conceived him not in her womb but in the thigh. But the Kshatriyas soon got the news and they attacked Devi Aarushi. When the Kshatriya kumaras tried to kill the embryo in the thigh and also Devi Aarushi, the baby became angry. He couldn’t tolerate the molestation of his mother on the hands of Kshatriya kumaras. To show his power and take revenge, the baby torn his mother’s thigh and appeared before the Kshatriyas. He was shining in the fire of wrath. The Kshatriyas couldn’t resist the radiance and brightness of Aurva and as a result they became blind.

Aurva’s Krodhanal (fire of anger) was then started to spread and destroy Trilok (Swarga, Marta, Patala: Heaven, Earth, Hell). On his request ancestors, Aurva controlled his anger and threw the fire in the sea. That fire took the form of horse-headed and named ‘Badabanal (another name of Agnidev).

Apart from this, there is another story about Aurva. According to Amarkoshtika, Rishi Urva wanted to give birth to a child without any biological source. He churned his breast with fire and a powerful man was born, who was kept in the sea.

According to Hindu Mythology, Agni has three different impersonations. Those are Surya (Sun) in the sky, Vajra (Lightning) in the air and Agni (Fire) on the earth. There is a simple explanation of these stories. Urva is another name of Earth. Aurva, the fire takes birth from the earth ( here, denotes lava) and at last kept, in the sea. The story of Earth’s transition from hot ball to a planet of life is told with elegance and in a poetic manner. These stories indicate, how much power the Vedic Rishis. Further, the story of a child protecting his mother being an embryo symbolizes the significance of the strong bond that a child share with his/ her parent in Indian tradition.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) says the world’s leading weather stations confirm the Earth has just had the warmest June on record, since record keeping began in 1880.

Meteorologists say nine of the 10 warmest Junes on record have occurred since 2010.  The 10th record-holder was in June 1998.  WMO says last month’s record-breaking temperatures were felt across the globe.  It says no land or ocean areas have recorded cold temperatures in June.

But WMO spokeswoman Claire Nullis says temperatures are only part of the story. “June saw the second-smallest Arctic sea ice extent for the month on record and the lowest Antarctic sea ice extent,” she said. “… There is a lot of concern this week about fires in Greenland as part of the unusual spike in Arctic blazes.”

Nullis notes Alert, Canada, the northernmost settlement on Earth, reached a high of 21 degrees Celsius (70 degrees Fahrenheit) for the first time in history a few days ago.  And now, she says the U.S. National Weather Service is issuing warnings about dangerous heat and humidity through this weekend in two-thirds of the United States.

Nullis says the heat wave will affect millions of people from the Great Plains to the East Coast.  She says temperatures of 38 to 43 degrees Celsius are expected. “Twenty to 30 record high temperatures are expected and no relief at night is expected,” she said. “Again, the National Weather Service is predicting that about 123 minimum overnight temperature records may be tied or broken.”

Scientists say heatwaves such as the one Earth is currently experiencing are consistent with climate scenarios. They predict more frequent, drawn out and intense heat events as greenhouse gas concentrations lead to a rise in global temperatures. (VOA)
