Durvāsā Muni

biographical name
the son of Maharṣi Atri and Anusūyā. A partial expansion of Rudra, a great ṛṣi and propounder of the jñāna-śāstras. Like Lord Śiva, he was easily angered and easily pleased. He could give great benedictions and terrible curses. Durvāsā Muni was always surrounded by sixty thousand disciples. Consequently, his unexpected arrival could create an awkward situation for his host. The Muni’s intimidating presence, and the difficulty of accommodating so many disciples could cause fear of the possible repercussion of displeasing him
