Keywords: Liberation, Philosophy, Truth



According to Hinduism, it is believed that Lord Brahma created this world. He created the first man and woman, whose names were Manu and Shatrupa.

Manu and Shatrupa had five children - three daughters and two sons. One of their daughters was named Devahuti, who was very intelligent and had many good qualities.

She got married to Sage Kardama, who was known for his knowledge and wisdom. Devahuti gave birth to nine daughters and one son. It is believed that Lord Vishnu himself took birth as Devahuti's son, whose name was Kapil. Kapil grew up to be a great sage. Devahuti was very proud of her son's knowledge and wisdom.

One day, Devahuti went to her son Kapil and asked him to teach her the knowledge that would end her desire to attain worldly things and free her from the cycle of birth and death.

Sage Kapil agreed to her request and gave her the knowledge that leads to truth or God. The knowledge given by Sage Kapil to Devahuti is called Sankhya Darshan.

Devahuti was very happy to receive this knowledge from her son. She understood the true meaning of life and learned how to attain God. After receiving this knowledge, Devahuti became even greater.

She became a means through which this great knowledge reached many people. If we also desire to attain true knowledge and God, like Devahuti then we too can achieve it through good deeds and dedication.
