THE PANDAVAS RETIRE TIMELY.

SB 1.15.11 PURPORT
Durväsä Muni: A powerful mystic brähmana determined to observe the principles of religion with great vows and under strict austerities. His name is associated with many historical events, and it appears that the great mystic could be both easily satisfied and easily annoyed, like Lord Siva. When he was satisfied, he could do tremendous good to the servitor, but if he was dissatisfied he could bring about the greatest calamity. Kumäri Kunti, at her father's house, used to minister all kinds of services to all great brähmanas, and being satisfied with her good reception Durväsä Muni blessed her with a power to call any demigod she desired. It is understood that he was a plenary incarnation of Lord Siva, and thus he could be either easily satisfied or annoyed. He was a great devotee of Lord Siva, and by Lord Siva's order he accepted the priesthood of King Svetaketu because of the King's performance of sacrifice for one hundred years. Sometimes he used to visit the parliamentary assembly of the heavenly kingdom of Indradeva. He could travel in space by his great mystic powers, and it is understood that he traveled a great distance through space, even up to the Vaikuntha planets beyond material space. He traveled all these long distances within one year, during his quarrel with King Ambarisa, the great devotee and Emperor of the world.
