Project Idea: Vishvamitra

Vishvamitra, who plays a key role in the Ramayana as Rama's guru, is one of the most famous sages in the Indian tradition, with an unusual life story: he started out his life as a king, not a sage.

Research Tip: Start with the Wikipedia article about Vishvamitra, and also the article about what it means to be a Brahmarshi. There are also good articles about other characters who are involved in Vishvamitra's life and adventures: Vashishtha, Harischandra, Trishanku, and Menaka.

Plus, you might also enjoy this comic book on Reserve in Bizzell: Vishvamitra: The King Who Became an Ascetic.
