Names of Chiranjeevi's (Immortals)

Ashwaththaamaa Bali Vyaasa: Hanuman cha Vibheeshanaha


Krupa: Parashuraamascha Sapthaithe Chiranjeevinaha

(Bhagavatam Story regarding the Snake / Poisonous bite: Astika, a young boy,
persuaded King Janamejaya to end his snake sacrifice. The King had earlier
initiated the sacrifice to avenge the death of his father Parikshit by Takshaka,
the poisonous snake.

After crores of snakes perished in the fire, the young lad intervened on behalf of the
snakes, and convinced the king to cease the yagna. The delighted snakes
offered Astika a boon in return for saving their lives. Astika said, “Let those,
who recite my account in the morning and evening, have nothing to fear from
you”.

The snakes acceded to his request and said, “He who recites the following need not
have any fear from us:

‘I call to mind the famous Astika born of Jaratkaru, that Astika who saved the
snakes from the snake-sacrifice. Therefore it behoves you not to bite me. O
snakes of virulent poison, remember the words of Astika after the snake
sacrifice of Janamejaya. You shall be blessed‘.

That snake who does not cease from biting even after hearing such mention of
Astika, shall have his hood divided a hundredfold like the fruit of Sinsa tree”.)
