Maharaja Shivi – The King who sacrificed his body to save a bird

Maharaja Shivi was born in the Puru dynasty and was the king of the Ushinar country. He was a great philanthropist and pious. Any petitioner who reached his door never returned empty-handed. King Shivi had great affection for the creatures. There was an atmosphere of happiness, peace, and affection in his kingdom. Discussions of his philanthropy and sacrifice were famous from earth to heaven.

When the gods told Indra and Agni Dev about the fame of King Shivi, they could not believe it. To find out the truth of this fact, he decided to take the test of Ushinresh Shivi. And then Indra took the form of an eagle and Agni took the form of a pigeon and then both of them flew to the kingdom of King Shivi.

At that time King Shivi was busy performing the rituals of a Yagya. Then, taking the form of a pigeon, Agni fell in the lap of the Maharaja while praying. The pigeon said to the king in the language of a trembling man, “Sir, protect me, I have come under your shelter.”

In a short time, Indra, taking the form of an eagle, also came there and said to King Shivi, “Rajan, you are undoubtedly a godly and benevolent king. That’s why you have no enemy on this earth. What are you doing being so great? Distraught with hunger, I was wandering in search of food. That’s when I found this bird, so you cannot take it in your shelter. This is wrongdoing. Please give me my food back.”
