King Janmenjaya-The Snake Sacrifice

King Janmenjaya 

 The Snake Sacrifice

Janmejaya performing snake sacrificeAfter the death of King Parikshit, his son Janmenjaya became the king of Hastinapur. King Janmenjaya wanted to revenge his father's death and wanted to kill Snake King Takshaka. He decided to organise a snake sacrifice. Accordingly, a sacrificial fire was burnt where the holy priests chanted the names of different snakes.

As a result, the snakes became powerless and fell into the sacrificial fire one by one and perished. The great snake sacrifice continued for many days and hundreds and thousands of snakes emerged from everywhere and surrendered to the sacrificial fire. Everyone waited for
Snake King Takshaka but he was missing. Everyone, including the priests and King Janmenjaya were puzzled, as they did not know that Snake King Takshaka had gone to Lord Indra for protection.
