Vishwamitra quarreled with Vashishta and was defeated. But Vashishta himself named him as a Brahmarshi. Viswamitra created new stellar constellations and threatened to create a new Indra. Gods trembled at this. He tested the truthfulness of Harishchandra. He saved Shunahshepha who was to be sacrificed. He was the guru of Sri Rama and taught him the use of many divine arrows. He was responsible for the redemption of Ahalya and for the marriage of Sita with Rama. In him we see a confluence of three high qualities-valour, knowledge and sympathy-which have made him great.
