  • Notes 
    • Chandra was a student with Brihaspati, the Teacher of devas. Tara was the wife of Brihaspati. Tara fell in love with the beauty of Chandra and started living with him deserting Brihaspati. When Brihaspati asked her to come back, she refused. Brihaspati got angry and a war eventually started between Chandra and Brihaspati. Sukracharya, the teacher of the Asuras joined Chandra in the battle. The devas joined Brihaspati in the battle. A huge battle started. As the battle was due to desire (kama) for Tara, it was known as Tarakaamayam. Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe feared the war might abolish the world. Hence he came down and stopped the war. He convinced Tara, took her away from Chandra and gave her back to Brihaspati. Budha, a beautiful child was born to Tara. Both Brihaspati and Chandra claimed to be the father of Budha. But Tara kept silent. Budha himself got angry over this tussle and asked his mother to tell the truth. Tara said that Chandra was the father of Budha.
