The prayer made by Gajendra on this occasion became a famous hymn in praise of Vishnu called the Gajendra Stuti. There was once an elephant named Gajendra who lived in a garden called Rtumat which was created by Varuna. Gajendra ruled over all the other elephants in the herd. On a hot day, he proceeded with his herd to a lake to cool off in its fresh waters. Suddenly a crocodile living in the lake attacked Gajendra and caught him by the leg. Gajendra tried for a long time to escape from the crocodile's clutches.
The crocodile was stronger than all the elephants put together. They gave up. Gajendra tried for a long time to escape from the crocodile.
He trumpeted until he was hoarse.
The crocodile simply would not let go. Gajendra lost a lot of blood and he became very weak. He finally realized that only God could help him and called out to Lord Narayana. The elephant started to pray to Lord Vishnu.
He sent the Sudarshana Chakrawhirling down. The Chakra killed the crocodile and set Gajendra free. Gajendra offered Lord Narayana a Lotus and thanked him for saving his life. Strange as it may seem, the crocodile then adopted the form of a Gandharva. His name was Huhu. The crocodile simply would not let go.
He trumpeted in pain and helplessness until he was hoarse.
As the struggle was seemingly endless and when he had spent his last drop of energy, Gajendra called to the god Vishnu to save him, holding a lotus up in the air as an offering.
Hearing his devotee's call and prayer, Vishnu rushed to the scene.
As Gajendra sighted the god coming, he lifted a lotus with his trunk. Seeing this, Vishnu was pleased and with his Sudharshana Chakra , he decapitated the crocodile.
Gajendra prostrated himself before the god.
Vishnu informed Gajendra that he, in one of his previous births, had been the celebrated King Indradyumna , a devotee of Vishnu, but due to his disrespect to the great Sage Agastya , he had been cursed to be reborn as an elephant.
Because Indradyumna had been devoted to Vishnu, the god had him born as Gajendra and made him realize that there is something called Kaivalya which is beyond Svarga and Urdhva Loka , the realm of the gods.
Indradyumna could attain Moksha finally when he as Gajendra left all his pride and doubt and totally surrendered himself to Vishnu. The prayer made by Gajendra on this occasion became a famous hymn in praise of Vishnu called the Gajendra Stuti[ citation needed ]. February Learn how and when to remove this template message Gajendra Moksha print Gajendra, in his previous life, was Indradyumna, a great king who was devoted to Vishnu. One day, Agastya , a great rishi sage came to visit the king, but Indradyumna remained seated, refusing to rise up to receive the sage with due respect.
Agastya was irate and noticed that the mighty king, despite the greatness of his good deeds, still had traces of Ahamkara , or egoism, and he revealed to the king that, in his next birth, he would be born as an elephant and in that form he would learn the hard way that the self must be renounced and surrendered to the Lord.
The crocodile in its previous birth had been a Gandharva king called Huhu. The sage Devala came to visit the king, and when the two of them were bathing and Devala was offering prayers to Surya the Sun god , the king pulled the sage's leg for fun.
