VISHNUPURAN - VOLUME 1
Episodes 1 to 4
Dharti intorduces herself to the viewers and starts narrating the story of the creation of universe.
\"Before the beginning there was an end\" she says, and then reveals how the universe was created by the supreme God Lord Vishnu. He appeared on our planet as a child floating on a leaf in the ravaging deluge after the world had come to an end. He created the Hindu trinity of gods Brahma, Vishnu & Mahesh. The three maintained the sacred and moral order of Dharma to ensure harmony in the free world.
Dharti continues to narrate the story. Manu and Shatrupas first son becomes the first king of our country. He has two wives from whom he has a son named Uttam. When Dhruv is neglected by his father he looks to his mother for help. In turn she tells him to pray to Lord Vishnu and ask the supreme god to grant him all his wishes.
Unsatisfied with praying to the image of Lord Vishnu, Dhruv leaves the palace in search of the supreme god himself. When Laxmi sees a child roaming about alone in the night she pleads with Vishnu to protect him. Laxmi later saves Dhruv from a gang of dacoits. Manu holds Uttanpad responsible for the disappearance of Dhruv. Narad is sent by Vishnu to guide Dhruv to the forest to pray for the supreme god to appear. Laxmi asks goddess Saraswati to protect Dhruv while he is in the forest.
Goddess Parvati agrees to the request of Laxmi to protect Dhruv in the forest. She goes to the forest on her Vahan (tiger) and saves Dhruv from a cheetah. She reports to Lord Shiva that Dhruv was unaware of the attack since he was so engrossed in his prayers. Dhruv gives up eating to compel Lord Vishnu to come to him. Vishnu refuses to do so until Dhruv goes through what is written in his fate by Brahma. Indra is told of Dhruvs whereabouts and she fears he may ask Vishnu for his throne. Narad tries to warn Dhruv by sending Rakshita disguised as his mother, but even she is unable to obstruct.
