Dear Children of this Holy Nation -
Second Talk - 12.
Shani can bring even the person of the highest fame andgreatest prosperity to the most abject state of disrepute and misfortune.
If his shadow comes into one’s horoscope, one goes through a very bad period (Shani-prabhav).
So Vishvamitra sends Shani and soon Raja Harishchandra loses his kingdom and wealth, is banished and forced to go to Kashi.
There he sees no other way but to sell his wife, Chandramati and son Rohitashva to a rich man to pay his dues to the sage.
In a state of abject poverty he seeks employment under the caretaker of a crematory and to deposit the requisite cremation fees with the owner of the
One day his son Rohitashva is bitten by a serpent and dies.
The erstwhile queen Chandramati, who was reduced to work as a domestic helper, has no money for the cremation of her son.
When she takes the body to the cremation ground, Harishchandra recognises her and is shocked to see their son dead in her arms.
She tells him that she has no money and pleads with him to cremate the child but he does not relent and insists that he can only cremate if she can pay the fee.
He says, “I have promised my employer that I will cremate the bodies only after receiving the fee, and so I cannot go back on my word”.
Even in this tragic and dire situation he sticks to his duty and his truthfulness—he not budge from his Dharma and Satya.
She says, “I have nothing with me to give as a requisite fee.”
