I have read at many places, Vajra was made from Dadhichi's bones, he gave up his life in meditation. That's why after killing Vritasur, Indra could perform his duties properly because of this sin of Brhma-hatya he got by Dadhichi's death. He performed  a yagya forprayaschitt of the sin, yet he was not successful. Then Devatas made Nahusha, Indra till he fell for Shachi, Indra's wife & was cursed by one of the Sapta-rishis.

^^^^ The Brahmhatya that Indra got was for killing Trishiras, not Dadhichi.  Dadichi voluntarily gave up his life, and the devas only took the bones from his body after he was done, so no sin was involved here.  The Trishiras sin remained, though, and it was for that sin that Indra performed the Ashwamedha yagna b4 doing what he had to to rescue Sachi from Nahusha.

In fact, Indra was one of the examples mentioned in the Ramayan by either Rama or Lakshman when they made the decision to perform an Ashwamedha Yagna, partly, for among other reasons, to atone for Brahmhatya of killing Ravana.  The Nahusha story, OTOH, appears in the Mahabharata, where Shalya narrates it to the Pandavas after telling them how he was tricked into joining the Kauravas.

^^^ It was this sin only which made Nahusha, Indra till he was cursed & lost the kingdom of Swarga.

 See Here  Devatas had asked him to give his body. Afterwords when Dadhichi's wife came to know about this incident, she had cursed Devatas for this. While fighting with Indra Vritrasur had taunted him for using bones of a Brahmin.
Various puranas gives different version of this story, but the commen factor is Vajra was made using Dadhichi's bones.

 Hi, so which book do you suggest we should buy...Devi Bhagavatam or Devi Puran.
Both of them are good, but content wise I found DP better, DB has many other stories too, so that can be the 2nd buy. All the puranas from Geeta Press Gorakhpur are better, they have less spelling mistakes, The one with Sanskrit shlokas & the translations are better, as it contains some useful stotras too.Smile

Thanx dear...But most probably i would be buying from a Holy place (near the temples)

There are many references told about Rishi Dadhichi in (Bhagavat purana ,4/1), Devi Bhagavatham and Puranas ...Commonly we follow the story of Dadhichi 's that Indra asking Lord Brahma for help to reclaim his kingly status of devaloka ...Thus Brahma and Vishnu recommended Indra to Use the bones of Dadhichi which is revered according to effect of  his penance . Thus what Naimisharanya story Prevails that all the rivers came there for his rituals of  last bath before giving up life .

But the Community who claims to be decedents of Rishi Dadhichi supports the above story that he safe Guarded the Weapons of devatas Which results in rest of the Incidents mentioned above .
Thats why i posted that Smile

They haven't shown Vritrasura's( MakadisuraLOL) body lying flat dead as Vrischik's. So he is still alive. Indra will do the needful.LOL
