According to Vishnu Purana,kushika married a damsel belonging to Purukutsa dynasty later called as Shatamarshana lineage — descendents of the Ikshvaku king Trasadasyu and had a son by name Gaadhi who had a daughter named Satyavati not to be confused with the Satyavati of Mahabharata.
Satyavati was married to an old Brahmin known as Ruchika who was foremost among the race of Bhrigu. Ruchika desired a son having the qualities of a Brahmin, and so he gave Satyavati a sacrificial offering charu which he had prepared to achieve this objective. During one of his journeys , he and his soldiers took rest in the ashram of Rishi Vasistha. There, his whole army was well fed and taken care of.
He expressed his surprise to the sage.
She provides me with everything I need. He began to think that possessing this cow would mean a lot to him; after all, the sage did not have to provide food and sustenance for a large army everyday. He expressed a desire to the sage for obtaining Nandini from him.
Vasistha was polite, but steadfast in his refusal. He would not be tempted by the offer of untold wealth that was made by Kaushika, for after all who can set a price on a cow, which can readily yield all the riches in the world. The king grew exceedingly angry. He insulted the Brahmarishi with harsh words, and ordered his soldiers to seize the cow, and drive it to his kingdom. Nandini was the daughter of Kamdhenu and hence she forcefully protested against the soldiers. Using her powers, she saved the life of Vashishtha.
Kaushika seeks to attain the same spiritual power as Vasistha, to become his equal, a brahmarishi. He undertakes a fierce penance for one thousand years, after which Brahma names him a Rajarishi, or royal sage. After another long penance of ten thousand years, Brahma names him a rishi, thus leaving his royal lineage permanently.
And Brahma suggest him to take Bramharshi grade from his guru Vashishta only, as he only has the power to call you as Brahmarshi. At this point, Indra, the king of Swarga attempts to test the tapasvin by sending Menaka, an apsara to seduce him.
Kaushik then lives with Menaka for 10 years.
They have a baby girl Shakuntala. And hence in the next birth she became a monkey and mother of Hanuman, Anjani. Kaushika now goes to the banks of the river Kaushiki, which is the spirit of his own sister. This is brought to light to Kaushika when he angrily curses Rambha, an apsara sent by Indra to seduce Kaushika again, to become a stone for a thousand years.
Visvamitra is addressed as maharsis by Brahma and other gods alarmed by his austerities Rise to Brahmarishi After cursing Rambha, Kaushika goes to the highest mountain of the Himalayas to perform an even more severe tapasya for over a thousand years.
He ceases to eat, and reduces his breathing to a bare minimum.
He is tested again by Indra, who comes as a poor Brahmin begging for food just as Kaushika is ready to break a fast of many years by eating some rice. Kaushika instantly gives his food away to Indra and resumes his meditation. He is also embraced by Vasistha, and their enmity is instantly ended.
She is the wife of Dushyanta and the mother of Bharata.
Shakuntala means one who is brought up by birds. There is a story that relates the birth of Shakuntala. She was born of the union of sage Vishwamitra and the Apsara Menaka.
Menaka was sent by Lord Indra, to distract the meditation of Sage Vishwamitra by seducing him. Menaka succeeded in her task and bore a child by him. When Vishwamitra came to know of this he was infuriated. He penances himself by discarding his child and his wife. Manaka, the celestial nymph realized that she could not leave the baby girl with Vishwamitra.
So before returning to heaven she left the infant Shakuntala on the banks of the Malini River which rises in the Himalayas. King Dushyanta first met Shakuntala while travelling through the forest with his armed forces. Though Kalidas here elaborates on an episode mentioned in the Mahabharata he makes sure to add his own renditions.
The protagonist here is Shakuntala the daughter of Vishwamitra and Menaka an apsara. She lives in a hermitage as she has been abandoned by her parents. Once when the elders of the hermitage go for a pilgrimage she chances to meet King Dushyant. Both fall in love with each other and get married.
After some time the king has to go back to his kingdom. He gives Shakuntala a ring. She has to show IT in court so that she can be given the position of royal queen. However, tragedy befalls when sage Durvasa comes to the hermitage. Since Shakuntala is still lost in the thoughts of the king she does not take proper care of him.
Durvasa curses her by bewitching Dushyant into forgetting all about her. Soon Shakuntala decides to take a trip to the kingdom. During the course of crossing river, her ring falls into the water.
