Article is compiled by Rama Chintakunta Sage Bharadwaja falls in the lineage of Sage Angirasa who is his grandfather and Sage Brihaspati is his father. These three sages are known to be trinity (Rishi Traya) of Bharadwaja Gotra which has been extended up to 1400 branches. Human beings hailing from this gotra are known to be Brahma Kshtriyas (which includes descendants from Brahmin and Kshtriya families). Sage Bharadwaja possess ardent inclination to acquire Vedic knowledge since his childhood and it is believed that he is still seeking or acquiring Vedic knowledge even though he has attained the prominent place as one of the Saptarishis in the present Manvatara which stands as a exemplification that learning never stops or in other words a true learner is never happy with his learning content. Sage Bharadwaja is believed to have taken birth twice to acquire Vedic knowledge. As a proof of this one legend goes about him like this. Lord Indra is well-versed in all kinds of learning and also acquired most of the Vedic knowledge created by Lord Brahma. Even though sage Bharadwaja is well-versed in the four Vedas but still not happy or in other words his thirst for knowledge acquisition is not satisfied and hence prays Lord Indra for acquiring some more superior knowledge from him. His body grows weak and he becomes unconscious. Marut Devatas who were on their way notice him and find him with divine radiance. They took pity on him and make him gain his energy. Lord Indra being happy with his penance appears before him and asks what he would do if he blesses him with some more years of life. Sage Bharadwaja then answers him saying that he would spend that time also in acquisition of some more Vedic knowledge. At this, Lord Indra says that Sage Bharadwaja has acquired more knowledge than all Devas (Demi-Gods) and makes three mountains to stand in front of Sage Bharadwaja. Lord Indra then says to Bharadwaja by picking three palms-full of mud from three mountains: “Whatever knowledge you have acquired is equal to three palms-full and still the Vedic knowledge is as immense as you can view in front of your eyes”. Lord Indra further says to him that knowledge acquisition is not enough to have a fulfilled life, what is equally important is spreading/sharing the knowledge to the fellow beings so that all the human beings can enhance in their capability while fulfilling their respective dharmas. Realizing his folly, sage Bharadwaja promises Lord Indra that he would share his knowledge to his fellow beings in every possible way. Sage Bharadwaja, henceforth, made it a point to share his knowledge for all the eligible people and at the same time continued acquiring the Vedic knowledge. Sage Bharadwaja was directed by Lord Indra to attain the mercy of Lord Shiva who can actually make him perform a Yagna through which he can attain the whole Vedic knowledge. As advised by Lord Indra, Sage Bharadwaja makes his way towards Mount Kailas. When he reaches there, Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati were emerged in divine dance, so he keeps on waiting for their response, but the dance continues days together and at last he faints. Then Goddess Parvati notices him and makes Lord Shiva aware of it.
