The question was first put by Drupada, the brother of Draupadi, to Bhagawan Vyasa as follows: "Respected sage! How can one woman become the wife of many, without leading to sin? Please explain this in detail".
Brahma Ji replied: "Why are you frightened of humans, when all of you are immortal? There should not be any fear in you from mortals".
The four earlier Indras said: "Lord! We will all follow your command. However, we request that we should not be fathered by any humans, rather by gods (hence were the five Pandavas born respectively by the gods Dharma, Vayu, Indra and the two Ashwinis). We should fight with divine weapons and at the end, return to our higher worlds".
The ever compassionate Bhagawan Shiva accepted their request and addressed the weeping woman who had accompanied Indra: "You are none other than Swarga-Lakshmi, the personification of all that is auspicious in heaven. You are distressed because of the condition of your lord, these five Indras. You too will accompany them to the human realm and become their wife." The graceful woman bowed, humbly accepting Bhagawan Shiva’s command.
