About the Book

 

When Satyavati, wife of Rishi Ruchik, exchanges with her mother, queen Ratna, the magic potion for bearing a child, they change not just their children’s destiny, but also the history of mankind.

 

Born of this mix-up is Vishwamitra, the son of a Kshatriya, with the qualities of a Brahmin. The duality in his life soon begins to show as he strives to become a Brahmarishi-the ultimate, the most powerful of all Gurus.

 

Vishwamitra is the riveting story of a brave but stubborn, haughty yet compassionate, visionary king of Aryavarta who became one of the most well-known sages of all time.
