Coconut Trees it’s
origin according to Indian myths…
Let us enjoy reading this
Hindu Mythological Story of The Origin of Coconut Tree.
King Trishanku was a saintly man whose one great desire was to ascend bodily
into heaven. He had once done a good turn to sage Vishwamitra and the sage decided to help him fulfill
Accordingly, he performed a yagna and Trishanku began to rise heavenwards.
When Indra, King of the gods,
saw Trishanku at the gates of Heaven, he was furious and catching hold of him,
threw him down. Vishwamitra saw Trishanku hurtling downwards and shouted:
"Let Trishanku stay where he is now!"
Trishanku’s fall was arrested.
As Indra would not let him ascend into heaven
and Vishwamitra would not allow him to come down, Trishanku
became suspended between heaven and earth.
Folklore has expanded this mythological story to explain the origin of the coconut tree: Vishwamitra knew that
Trishanku would eventually fall to earth unless held up by physical means, so
he propped him up with a long pole.
The pole eventually turned into a coconut tree and Trishanku’s head became its
fruit. The fibre around the coconut is Trishanku’s beard. When you take it off,
you see his eyes peering at you.
p.s :- got this myth on google..... And its not my story !
