Rambha tries to seduce Shukra
|Affiliation||apsara ,Nalakuvara patni|
She is unrivalled in her accomplishments in the arts of dancing, music and beauty. She is often asked by the king of the Devas, Indra to break the tapasya of sages so that the purity of their penance is tested against temptation, and also that the order of the three worlds remains undisturbed by any one man's mystical powers.
When she tries to disturb the penance of Rishi Vishwamitra (who is doing it to become a Brahmarishi), she is cursed by him to become a rock for 10,000 years till a Brahmin delivers her from the curse.
