Vishwamitra was a Kshatriya king who constantly explored the realms of immortality beyond the kingdom of earth. His confrontation with Sage Vashistha convinced him of the superiority of the spiritual over physical strength, and so he set out to attain it.When he was given the status of Rajarshi, he was not content. This was because the word connoted a rishi who was born a Kshatriya and was considered inferior to a Brahmarishi, a rishi who had been born a Brahmin.The arduous paths that Vishwamitra had to tread to conquer his passions in order to reach spiritual heights are described in detail, giving us a glimpse of the glory of the rishis.India was later named after Bharata, the grandson of Vishwamitra.
