Udayana
Udayana
Description
This story is adapted from the Sanskrit play "SWAPNAVASAVADATTA" generally attributed to the Sanskrit playwright, Bhasa. It is one of the thirteen Sanskrit dramas discovered in the South by Pandit Ganapati Shastri in 1912.

Udayana, the Vatsa king, had been tricked into captivity by King Pradyota of Avanti who wanted to learn from him the secret of taming elephants. At Ujjaini, the capital of Avanti, Udayana refused to teach Pradyota unless he paid him the homage due to a guru. But Pradyota's ego would not. permit him to do so. He sent his daughter Vasavadatta instead, telling Udayana that she was one of his hunch-backed relatives. And Vasavadatta was told that Udayana was a leper. The lessons began with a curtain screening the teacher from the taught. However, one day, when the two saw each other the inevitable happened. They fell in love and with the help of his loyal minister, Yaugandharayana, Udayana eloped with Vasavadatta to Kaushambi. What followed is the story colour fully retold in our Amar Chitra Katha.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
